Stayed in Room 8 for one night to visit St Albans and attend the Alban Arena Having read several reviews that weren't so good I was interested in seeing what the hotel was really like. On arrival we checked in at Reception to a warm, friendly welcome. We were early and just popped in to say we were here and...

Location is fantastic. The hotel is in need of a little refurb as some other reviews have said but we weren't too bothered about the decor as we were only staying overnight. The shower was very powerful and the bed was very comfortable. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as there was a harvester close by. We had a...

Yes you could go to the Premier Inn, but this is a very old historic building. Yes it has creaky floors, the doors might not close without a bit of a shove, the windows aren't modern and there are bits that could do with some attention but it's a very old building! We were met by a very pleasant receptionist...

The White Hart Hotel, 23-25 Holywell Hill, St. Albans AL1 1EZ...I am really struggling to find words to describe this establishment after our short stay before heading off to spend a day at Warner and Harry Potter. Probably for some it may have old world charm with character. The building was cold, damp and depressing. The floor in the bedroom...

Absolutely love the rambling historic character of this ancient inn.. No two floors, walls or ceilings are parallel and you do get an amazing feel of history if you consider the past of this important stopping point off the old Roman Watling Street.

Two years on we decided to visit St Albans again for our festive family day out, I was apprehensive that our visit to the White Hart would not be as good second time around, it was, in fact, better! Still with that lovely old world charm and friendly staff it didn't disappoint; the food was excellent and such great value,...

Stayed here in December and just loved it. Smallish room but very quiet, with large comfortable bed + super clean bathroom. Would recommend if you want a room with charm and don't mind the sloping floors and wonky ceilings - part of its charm. Very central and not too far from station. Lovely atmosphere and friendly helpful staff.

We stay here when we visit family over Christmas as the hotel is very conveniently placed. It's an old creaky hotel with an interesting layout - all of which adds to the character. The floors are delightfully uneven and the rooms are large with lovely high ceilings. If you don't like old buildings - don't stay here ! Breakfast is...
