I came with two friends for lunch and we all chose very different choices from the menu including a breakfast and steak. The steak was very small & it was served with soggy chips. The all day breakfast was not even served with toast. The risotto was sour tasting. We all left very disappointed. A lovely venue but we will... More

We have just returned from a stay at The White Hart. I had booked a family room and explained I was travelling with my sisters and we wanted a room together. As we checked in they wanted the money upfront which is not normal practice but we paid. We were then taken to a first floor 'cottage' room (No.18). There... More

Free unasked for upgrade of last minute booking. Room amazing and spotless. Staff friendly and helpful. Ensuite clean and everything provided. Lots of stairs to lounge. Room wood-panelled and full of character.

A true Tudor building very pleasant and very clean. Warm welcome. Parking at the back but beware narrow entrance at the front of hotel. Relaxing atmosphere. Great pub. Good hotel, good restaurant and atmosphere. Recommend. We always stop for a drink here, and the occasional meal. Family friends stayed overnight some years back. No lift, no disabled facilities - restrictive... More

Celebrated husband's 55th birthday at this unique, interesting old hotel! Food was served with great eye appeal & tasted delicious! Simone & crew provided excellent table service & didn't make us feel pressured to eat & leave in a hurry... Would highly recommend eating here & plan on returning ourselves

This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The sink was in the bedroom, the toilet/shower room was very small and dirty. The tiling needed regrouting. There was dust on the carpet behind the door, cobwebs in the bedroom. The pillows were very lumpy. Definitely not worth £89 per night.

J M, Owner at The White Hart Hotel, responded to this review

As our building dates from 1470 and is Listed, we are limited in the amount of work that can be done to the structure of the rooms. Every room in the hotel is different as a result. The vast majority of our guests say how much they love the individual nature of the rooms. A couple of the rooms have... More

My partner and I were driving through St. Albans on a Saturday night when we thought we'd stop somewhere to chill out and have a drink. We noticed the hotel and a sign about live piano music every Friday or Saturday. There was a young man (we have forgotten his name) who was playing piano at the bar, and it... More

We visited St Albans as a day trip as it has lots of dog friendly places. The White Hart is shown as dog friendly so we headed there, on arriving my partner out of courtesy went to ask if it allowed dogs, the answer was yes so we headed in. The landlord then asked us to leave because our dogs... More

We do welcome dogs as a general rule. This couple came in with two enormous Alsatians which would have filled up the whole bar. They were definitely not asleep ! I advised them that other customers would probably find the dogs intimidating. They could have gone out to the garden area but they decided to walk out instead. More

We booked a family room which was at the top of the hotel. As you enter the room you smell the toilet which is a Saniflow. Just laid on a single bed which is a mattress topper on top of wooden slats - very uncomfortable. The double bed is two single beds with single quilts pushed together but is better... More

This is a puzzling review as the guests stayed on a Saturday and then decided to come back the following week to the same family room. At the time, they said they were very happy with the room and loved the hotel... More
