Visited this hotel for a working lunch. The hotel is presented very well and the lounge area was comfortable and welcoming. The food was a total let down. I ate from the bar menu and ordered a beef and horseradish sandwich with toasted bread at £7.50. After waiting for 40 minutes for the sandwich to arrive I had to remind... More

Stayed last year on our wedding night B&B, the room was lovely, as were the staff who really helped to make it special. Returned yestaerday, this time to the Lake restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The food was sublime and the service absolutely faultless. Just looking for another excuse to return!

Many years ago I lived in St Albans and often walked past St Michaels Manor, not realizing that there was a fine hotel with remarkable grounds behind the walls and entrance. A board of historical documents tells that it was bought in 1953 for the sum of GBP4,600. Today it is a very comfortable country hotel. The staff are exceptionally... More
