We loved this historic, charming hotel in the center of a town that shouldn't be missed. We were there during the St. Albans Festival and thoroughly enjoyed the town, the cathedral, and the White Hart Hotel.

We loved our 2 night stay at the White Hart. We have 3 teenagers and we found our room to be clean and just the right size for all of us. The food was AMAZING we ended up eating all of our meals at the hotel as the servers were so nice and everyone really enjoyed their meals. We felt... More

Booked a family room. The 'bed' for our son was an ancient metal frames sofa bed which couldn't be opened as it was a foot from the bottom of our bed (which was 2 very old singles pushed together). The 'bedding' for our 12 year old son was a single dirty, stained thin duvet - no sheet or pillow! We... More

This particular family room complex has two rooms next to each other with a bathroom between the two. The small corridor is completely private to the apartment. I must admit that our experience is that most children of this sort of age like the separate room. Normally when 3 or 4 people book this unit, the two rooms are set... More

We stayed for one night in the family room at the top of the building. We had a very rude welcome at Reception - we had a dog with us (and had booked with a dog) and apparently we shouldn't have been allocated that room by whoever had answered our phone call to book. Was this our fault? Clearly not,... More

I think we are the only hotel is St. Albans city centre that takes dogs. On the this evening the hotel was full and so we give this gentleman a large room that would not normally be given to guests with pets. This had been pre-allocated so I think he may have misunderstood the receptionist's comments. The room is on... More

Stayed here for a well earned child free weekend break. Hotel was very old and atmospheric. Our room was perfect with a four poster bed. St Albans is a great place with plenty of great restaurants and bars, cafe Rouge was delicious. On the Saturday evening before we went out for dinner the hotel bar had "The Piano Man" playing...

Stayed for one night while in the area for meetings. Plentiful free parking behind the hotel. Reception is located between the bar and restaurant and has a pair of thrones and interesting Tudor facts to inform. A really interesting touch. My room was cosy, at the top of the hotel and I had a great nights sleep. Recently renovated and... More

Right in the centre of St Albans, this old hotel has all you need for a short stay. A clean comfortable room, good food and a great little bar that serves the purpose. Our only concern would be the price of drinks, but this seems to be the problem in all establishments in the area. The hotel is close to... More

White Hart is in an ideal location to stay In St Albans if you are looking to explore the centre of the city as it is directly opposite a walkway to the Abbey. This was our second stay at this hotel & must admit the bathroom this time was on the small side & the toilet is of the sanilav... More
