Stayed in the 2 bedroom flat on romeland hill. Pam runs a lovely property which is beautifully decorated and maintained. Cleaners do a great job and the place is decorated to a high standard. You also can't beat the location - I still miss listening to the soothing bells of the cathedral every evening! Only downside is the noise from... More

We stayed in one of Pamela's properties at Bowes-Lyons mews. It is not part of the Straw House, but as it doesn't have its own listing and I wanted to make sure to express my positive views. Having arrived from Australia and planning to buy in St Albans, we stayed at 5 addresses in 2.5 months. Bowes-Lyons mews was the... More

We booked apartment 1 around the corner at 6 Romeland Hill and it was fantastic. Classic with a modern twist and right opposite the Cathedral. Close to all the amenities, pubs and restaurants of the town too. I cannot fault the decor, cleanliness, luxury or feel of the place at all. Great for a break with friends.

My husband & I rented a 1 bedroom apt. here for 8 nights. Completely furnished, right down to a lovely welcome basket & milk in the fridge. We had #6 on the top floor, so quite a few stairs involved. We were given a packet of parking permits, but sometimes finding a space is very tricky. Centrally located to the... More

We are a family with daughters of 10 and 12 and used The Straw House Apartments as a base for seeing London. We were delighted with the apartment - it was extremely well appointed, roomy, and had a lovely outlook, with St Albans Cathedral directly across the road. There were some lovely touches with a basket of groceries and toiletry... More

This was our second stay with the company but the first time in The Strawhouse. The apartment offered everything we could possibly want. It was beautifully furnished, clean and very comfortable as well as offering those little touches that make all the difference such as a welcome bottle of wine, chocolates from M&S and toiletries from The White Company. Lovely!... More

I should not let this little secret go out to the world, but I have to share it with my fellow travellers. The Strawhouse is a self catering group of apartements, which cradle you in the lap of luxury. Whether you are staying for a week or a month, your comfort is guaranteed. Our unit, a one bedroom apartement, consisted... More
