Exceptional!, Wonderful service from the two lady on reception (if I am not wrong Giulia and the blonde one I don't remember the name pardon) on arrival. Nothing was to much bother. The cathedral within walking distance that are able to visit even though I was in St. Albans in the past. The proximity to S.Peter street with all shops... More

The location of the hotel is perfect, nicely placed in the town centre walking distance to the bars. Staff are really good and friendly. Rooms are nice and clean. The shower is brilliant, power shower. Only mark down is the rooms were so warm and there is no air conditioning, but there is a fan.

Not much more to say! well located for the Abbey and city centre restaurants, basic rooms which are clean and reasonably comfortable, good value for money. Small bathroom,just an over bath shower attachment, but quite powerful, so its a shame the bath drains are not adequate for the supply of water and you end up standing in ankle deep water... More

The room was very clean with a nice bathroom area including a powerful shower! The beds were comfortable. Iron and ironing board in the room which was great. Bar service was also very good! Breakfast was full of choice and tasty. Only thing that I can fault the hotel on is the lack of parking.
