We didn't stay here, just stopped for dinner. Food and service was brilliant and we plan to come again and stop for a night or two. I am surprised the owners don't have much of the inn's history on their website; I found a site that gives a really interesting history. They should also mention their proximity to The Harry...

This is a great place to stay when in St Albans, its a real old hotel but the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The staff are very friendly and location is great. We will stay here again when next in St Albans.

My children stayed at The White Hart for a weekend get away. Feedback on the rooms was excellent, staff very friendly and the food was good with large helpings. My experience of the booking was mixed. I obtained information from the female owner and she was very friendly and helpful. I later spoke to her husband and found that he... More

Stayed for 2 nights and had a superior room. Room lovely, very clean couldn't fault it. We had breakfast here both days and it was really nice. I even complimented the chef on the first morning as it was so nice. The hotel is full of character, sloping floors and ceilings, lots of nooks and crannies to explore.

I was there for business for two nights, did not use the restaurant, so no opinion about that. The hotel is nice and cosy, but the rooms with street view are quite loud, since traffic starts at five in the morning. Try to avoid them. Bar food and beer was o.k.

I saw this olde pub on Google maps which gives the option of a 360 degree view of the inside. I liked the look of it so I popped in for a pint while on a business trip. What I experienced was a disaster zone! The staff were completely incompetent (it wasn't even busy) and couldn't get anyone's drink or... More

we had a groupon deal otherwise would not have visited. So glad we did the restaurant was very nice the building lovely. The food was excellent and very professionally presented. The service was rather slow, but we were in no rush. The White chocolate cheesecake was to die for!!

The room was advertised as a double, the bed was 3/4 with only 1 pillow each. Tea and coffee making facilities were available but only one cup supplied. There must of been an air con unit or something outside our room that was coming on & off all night. The bathroom ceiling height was approx 5'8 Max my boyfriend is... More

The good stuff first - the breakfast and service were very good indeed and at £8 per adult for the breakfast, i thought it good value too. It really was first rate. The staff were also very good, again first rate. The reason i have given the rating of poor was because the bedrooms (18 and 19) were shocking. My... More

Lovely pet friendly hotel. Food excellent. Staff very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay with our dog very happy. Gorgeous old building and in a stunning location. Would happily take our dog there again but would like a bigger room. I think the superior rooms don't take dogs which is a shame.
