An excellent hotel in the old part of St Albans. Everything was to the very highest standard. The decor was subtle, tasteful and emphasised the architectural features of the building which is set in immaculately kept grounds. My single room was imaginatively designed to maximise space and facilities perfectly. Staff were professional, efficient and most helpful. Breakfast was generous and... More

Stayed here a lot last year. Back for a couple more nights. Lovely quiet room on top floor (Tulip). Breakfast in beautiful surroundings overlooking grounds. It's a short walk up to many good restaurants if you want to stretch your legs in the evening but eating in is an excellent option.

The service is brilliant and the location is fabulous. We are definitely going back!!!! It makes St Albans an even more gorgeous place than it already is. The style is very traditional but modern at the same time and it's just really breathtakingly beautiful.

This was a one night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast. We know the hotel. My youngest son married there in 1999 and now lives nearby. We made the booking partly for this reason so we could also visit our young granddaughter. We stayed in a Garden room and it was a perfect location for us. Dinner was delicious and... More

I stumbled across this hotel in the wee hours when searching for a bed for the night. What a surprise! Not often does one stay in a 500 year old manor house that has been tastefully converted into a beautiful hotel. The bed and room was perfect and the breakfast excellent.

I stay here regularly as my office is in St. Albans. I have noticed a real effort by the staff to improve the service provided. When you arrive everyone is full of smiles and "hellos", right across the board, no matter who you talk to. Breakfast is better, less greasy and the array of juices is very welcome. Wifi reception...
