I recently hosted a business event at the Hotel and stayed overnight with my family. I have to say that all of the staff went over and above the call of duty in facilitating my often awkward requests. The rooms were beautifully appointed (I stayed in two different ones) and to the highest standard. The food was excellent, breakfast amazing... More

We stayed over on a Sunday night for a 70th birthday, where we also had an afternoon cream tea. Our rooms were great, although slightly on the smaller side compared to hotels where we have stayed before. The afternoon tea was great with champagne and then followed up by sitting outside around the lake in the sun. Our evening meal... More

Free and easy parking in the middle of old St Albans. Excellent service from the staff, 100% - nothing was any trouble. They wanted to help you whenever you met them.

I arrived full of expectations but left rather disappointed. The menu for this special day was unimaginative and bland with the portions minute. My waiter insisted the fish was sea bass: It was cod (the menu said so) and was not aware of which side my side plate sat.I am afraid the pleasant dining area and quite fantastic grounds do... More

Over the years have tried this local hotel several times and have always come away feeling somewhat under impressed and over-charged. On the plus side, the staff are pleasant but not hyper-efficient and the venue is lovely, especially if the sun is out.

Yesterday evening we made a second visit in this month. So the title of this review underlines the quality of the service ,décor and food quality. Even the coffee was excellent, full of taste and hot. Why do so many places serve indifferent coffee ?
