Everything about this hotel is top quality. The staff are polite, friendly and extremely obliging. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and my husband was keen to watch the rugby on TV. Rather than sit up in our room to watch it the staff set up a TV in a small lounge, where we had bar snacks and drinks. We had... More

My partner and I stayed here on 30th January 2016. Everything about the hotel was everything I expected and more! The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean with a lovely view across the gardens. We had made a dinner reservation for 8pm - the restaurant food was Ala'Carte and was superb as was the service. The staff could not have... More

Such a beautiful morning and setting for my mothers 70th birthday and we arrived at 12.35pm for our 12.45pm lunch with 3 children in tow ranging from 2.5 to 11 years old. The hotel is rather charming and I have attended many functions over the years but have ambivalent memories over the food so I thought it was time to... More

Very well run, excellent staff and everything thought of. Beautiful grounds and near to a river and park for a brisk walk in the snow. Delicious food and attentive barman/waiter for a single traveller. Just the sound of air conditioning unit outside my bedroom window my only gripe.

A first visit to this hotel for us and, hopefully, won't be the last. From arrival on Friday evening to our departure on Sunday, we found the service we received from all the staff we encountered to be a wonderful balance of friendliness and professionalism. The hotel is small enough to receive personal attention at all times. When we discovered... More

By British standards this is an excellent hotel - all staff were efficient and pleasant and fixed any little issues promptly. In an old "character" building the rooms have been sympathetically renovated with a modern bathroom and contemporary fabrics. Wi-fi not bad but no iPod docks or music players. Kettle but no coffee maker and, as usual in the old... More

My girlfriend booked this hotel as a birthday surprise for me, and I really think it's worth the effort to praise this particular hotel. The hotel is set in an interesting and historic part of St.Albans, very near the Cathedral. The Hotel itself is lovely, set in tranquil grounds with a lake - great setting for small weddings and celebrations.... More
