The bathroom was lovely with a full size bath and huge shower! Breakfast the next day was delicious with plenty of choice from the continental buffet and a choice... More

If you are vegetarian make sure you eat well before eating here. I was very disappointed with the size difference between the beef and Yorkshire puddings and my my polenta dish (which was delicious). It was so obvious everyone at the table commented, the meat course even had more vegetables on it..... Quite ironic really. I mentioned it to the... More

This beautiful manor hotel is the perfect retreat after a busy week. The setting is idyllic, in stunning grounds with a private lake to look out on.

Love absolutely everything about this hotel. It's beautiful inside and out with lush, bright, very well kept gardens and a huge car park. Our room had a boutique feel with luxurious touches such as the ostrich feather with a big Z attached to it which you can hook on your door if you do not wish to be disturbed. Our... More

We were guests at a wedding at St Michael's Manor and were very impressed by the setting, facilities, service and quality of the food. The gardens are beautifully maintained and offer a tranquil oasis close to the centre of St Albans. The staff were friendly and attentive and, while geared around the wedding, seemed to take care of the public... More
