Each year very near Christmas, we plan a family day trip to a Cathedral City, Today we visited St Albans and after visiting the Christmas Market in the Cathedral grounds we decided to look for somewhere to eat. Just a few minutes from the Cathedral is The White Hart Hotel and Restaurant. It is a very traditional historic building with... More

The hotel was built in the15th century and is oozing with character. Nice cosy atmosphere, friendly staff. But a burglar climbed in through the bathroom window he was shocked to see me in the room and fled. Apart from the intruder every thing was fine

Went on a tour to St.Albans and our wonderful organiser had booked us in for lunch at the White Hart. Being a large group most of us opted for the set menu and I must admit from the descriptions on the menu, I was really looking forward to the meal. I ordered the turkey and the portion was generous but... More

I visited this pub today and ate from the seasonal meal. Sadly the food was very poor - the salad was straight out of a bag with bits of bacon and an overdone poached egg on top. The Christmas dinner was definitely quantity over quality. It was all bland and tasteless with a small piece of inedible stuffing. The atmosphere... More

Recent visit for a Christmas bash with holiday friends. Hotel is located on Holywell Hill bang opposite the Cathedral in St Albans. It is very picturesque, but parking may be an issue as they have a small car park to the rear which I think they try to reserve for residents, but allow some public in for around £6 per... More

Our first floor room was quite horrid, There was no sink in the shower room and not even a hook to hang ones clothes. The stingy sink was in the room with no light over, mind you, there was a snazzy clock incorporated in the mirror! The lighting was so poor we were neither able to shave, successfully put on...

We stayed for two nights for our son's graduation and had a double and a single room, both en-suite. The hotel is several hundred years old and as long as you are prepared for quirky features which might be slightly inconvenient, you will love it. The owners are wonderfully friendly and helpful and really can't do enough for you. Our... More

The hotel was superb. I thought it was just like any other cheap hotel, but to my surprise it was much more than what I have expected. Its just like staying at a museum. Very nice hotel. The manager Jane was extremely polite and attentive. So as the young waitress. When we arrived, Jane helped us to get the room... More

This is what you expect from an old pub , but the room rate was expensive considering no sink in the bathroom . noise until after 1am and then woken up by kitchen staff shouting very early am . I like the hotel but just a few things would of made a huge difference

We stayed in this hotel last night, we had room 8 which is huge!! The bed was massive and the uneven floor added character. The bathroom was beautiful although very modern, the shower was bliss, we didn't have breakfast but the restaurant looked lovely. The sound of the cathedral bells was amazing, would have no problem staying here again
