We stayed here for 1 night as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday. The hotel itself is beautiful and the room was just what we wanted for our time away. So convenient for being central and just opppsite the Cathdral we really lucked out with this place. The only thing that let it down was the customer service, or lack... More

Sunday 31st August 2014 We visited the White Hart Hotel for lunch in their Tudor Restaurant last Sunday. Our Goddaughter is getting married next year and is having the reception at the hotel so it was all about discussing the details and planning how the layout worked for the area for the food, the band etc. The restaurant (and the...

Second time we've stayed here ..... very pleasant stay (again). It's very convenient for the cathedral and the town centre. The room was a little on the small side, and had a drop from one side to the other of getting on for a foot (!!), so the bed was chocked on one side to bring it (nearly) level. Free... More

We stayed in the white hart hotel for one evening August 26th and we found it to be a really nice little hotel. The room was nice and the bed was really comfy, although the bed side cabinet had a massive slant on it. We presumed this was because it was such an old building. The building itself is obviously...

Needing to be in St Albans overnight, the White Hart was chosen purely because it was close to St Albans Cathedral. Many 'old' hotels have an old bit and then the rest is 20/21 century. Much of what is seen here is at least 17th c., especially the panelling which is so plentiful that much is just painted over white.... More

I booked this hotel for clients of mine for a murder mystery dinner. It was a special occasion for them celebrating a 25th anniversary and they wanted somewhere local for their party. Nothing was too much trouble in setting it up and they were hugely accommodating liaising with both myself and my client. The staff have an amazing can do... More

we stayed at the White Heart St Albans as a family of 5, 2 adults, and 3 kids 16,10 and 8. worth knowing that the large room is in the hotel annex and is not to the same standard as the rest of the hotel. reasonably good value but should be made clear that the standard is significantly lower.
