We returned yet again for our 15th Wedding Anniversary & were even more impressed this time. The place is so well kept & looking amazing with the Christmas decorations. The food was truly delicious - quality not quantity & so beautifully presented. Staff were unobtrusively attentive & the atmosphere was warm & relaxing - we didn't want to leave! So... More

I chose St Michael's Manor for lunch with an old friend, slightly apprehensive since he is not the 'hotel type'. However, he was very impressed by the stylish atmosphere, the wonderful views, the attentive service - and not least the superbly cooked and presented lunch. The hotel was quiet and refined, no canned music and all the guests smartly dressed... More

Dear ClassicalBoy Thank you for your glowing endorsement of our Lake Restaurant following your recent lunch - I am delighted that you enjoyed the experience and that your friend was persuaded that a hotel dining room can be (and often is) just as good as a non-hotel restaurant. There is often a preconception that hotel dining rooms are stuffy and... More

The hotel is a beautiful real british manor. Extensions of the building are cleverly incorporated. Very Nice garden bordering a small lake. The bedroom is very good with excellent beds . The restaurant menu is english but not very interesting tough Service is attentive and professional .

Overall St Albans stay good but rather felt the hotel resting on past laurels and rather full of itself. Pricey for what it was. Afternoon tea far from what I expected, scones excellent but extremely poor jam. Service ok but not exceptional.

We stayed here for one night. The overall ambiance was of a country house hotel but located in the centre of St Albans in beautiful grounds. The room (we stayed in Pine) was appointed to a high standard. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel is a real plus... More

Just returned from a weekend stay at this hotel visiting our daughter , it is in a great location within easy walking distance of the city centre and bordering a big park which was great for an early morning stroll.

My wife and I stayed a night in Hornbeam and had lunch in the restaurant with some friends. The room was very comfortable and, unusually nowadays, had an evening turn down service which was very welcome. The food in the restaurant was excellent although the service at lunchtime was rather on the slow side. There is limited lounge seating availability... More

Had afternoon tea here with a group of friends. It was all quite pleasant but didn't really have the wow factor. The scones were good and the cakes amazing - especially the little macaroons, however, the sandwiches were non descript. I found the young lady who was serving us to be a bit snobby, but then again it is a... More
