Nice hotel, clean rooms, great breakfast, polite staff, car park only down side, it's about 200m from the hotel, which if raining is a pain and may be an issue for the elderly. Would I stay here again, yes

This hotel offers comfy rooms, great breakfast and nice friendly staff. It's reasonably priced and in a great location. The hotels offers 3 car parks, the downside is they can sometimes be full and a few mins walk away.

Over all an enjoyable stay. The room was a little tatty but very clean. The breakfast and reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay again and recommend. The location was excellent, in the centre of town. The parking was also good being able to park behind the hotel was a bonus.

My husband and I stayed here over New Years with our two children. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast on both days was a highlight, with nice and helpful wait staff. Our 'family room' was 2 adjoining rooms, which was fantastic as the kids had their own space and tv. The only complaint would be the beds. We found them...

Stayed for a night at this very pleasant hotel in the centre of St Albans, a short walk from the cathedral. The front, which now holds the bar, reception and breakfast room, was a Post Office, and a newer extension behind houses the bedrooms. There is a small car park at the back. The staff are all very friendly and...

Lovely hotel in the centre of St Albans. The room was perfect and the staff leaving a birthday card for my wife was a real personal touch. The hotel is situated in the heart of the town opposite the Cathedral, only a short walk to lively high street. Will be staying again. Thank you Clarion.
