This was a one night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast. We know the hotel. My youngest son married there in 1999 and now lives nearby. We made the booking partly for this reason so we could also visit our young granddaughter. We stayed in a Garden room and it was a perfect location for us. Dinner was delicious and... More

I stumbled across this hotel in the wee hours when searching for a bed for the night. What a surprise! Not often does one stay in a 500 year old manor house that has been tastefully converted into a beautiful hotel. The bed and room was perfect and the breakfast excellent.

I stay here regularly as my office is in St. Albans. I have noticed a real effort by the staff to improve the service provided. When you arrive everyone is full of smiles and "hellos", right across the board, no matter who you talk to. Breakfast is better, less greasy and the array of juices is very welcome. Wifi reception...

My wife and I visited the hotel for afternoon tea yesterday with three friends which we had booked in advance. There were plenty of car parking spaces and the grounds and lake were very attractive. On entering, we were pleased to find that the hotel and lounge for afternoon teas were cosy and warm. The lounge was impressive and well... More

I've eaten here several times - lunch, dinner and cream tea. Each time the food has been delicious, and the service friendly and courteous. The venue is beautiful, and there is a gorgeous view from the conservatory over the lake.

We had our second stay to St Michael's at the weekend, and it won't be the last. The hotel is well placed on the edge of town, easy to get to from the motorway, but once you've parked the car you can walk around parks, museums and the town. The grounds are a delight. Whilst this week it was cold... More

I just spent my birthday at St Michael's Manor and we had a wonderful time. I rang up to check on the booking beforehand and that the champagne we'd ordered would be in the room, and when I got there it was all perfect.

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
