It's a shame, because I really liked other aspects of the hotel, but they could not compensate for a night tossing and turning because the bed and pillows were too hard. Breakfast was excellent, and we appreciated the availability of soya milk.

There are surprisingly few hotels in central St Albans so you would think it would be hard to get a good deal; not so. We got a really good price for our two night stay. The Clarion Collection Hotel is surprisingly big and modern once you get past the front part of the building. The rooms are clean, well appointed...

Stayed on business, well located in the heart of St Albans and although a short walk to park its well organised. The rooms and decor are a little tired but the staff throughout were excellent from reception to breakfast they really couldnt be faulted. Breakfast is good enough with plenty of choice hot and cold, overall a good experience and...

The Hotel is a lovely building, well situated on the main street of St Albans, car parking is close by, but by a roundabout route. The staff are friendly, helpful and caring. Good breakfast. Pleasant bar. Lovely room, with everything you'd want.

This hotel is well located near the centre of town. It is a beautiful building from the outside.. Our room wasn't the cleanest - the toilet seat had yellowed and should have been replaced, and there was a ring mark on the bedside table which hadn't been wiped properly. We had to ask for a remote control for the TV!...

In the centre of St Alban you can find this nice boutique hotel. In a classical building the hotel has a nice reception area and a small bar on the ground floor. My room was clean , internet is for free, may be the bed was a bit hard. Breakfast was a little disappointing for continental Europe guests. Prices are...

What a lovely hotel. Staff very polite, helpful and friendly especially the ladies at reception on check in and Greg at breakfast. Room very comfy, clean and quiet. We had a twin room and both commented on how comfy beds were. The hotel is central to all you would want to see in St Albans. 2 minutes from the beautiful...

I have stayed at the Clarion on a fair few occasions over the last twelve months, always mid week on business. The first thing that I should comment on is the approach of the staff. Without exception I have found them all helpful, polite and considerate. There doesn't seem to be quite the same turnover of staff as you see...
