We recently stayed at Tankerfield House with our 3 month old baby on our first trip away from home (apart from staying with relatives). Jacqui very helpfully allocated us the green suite which has its own sitting room, so that gave us plenty of space for all of our bags and travel cot. I have to say it was really lovely having the separate sitting area rather than being squashed into just one room.
Jacqui and Alberto were friendly, relaxed and accommodating hosts and we very much enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and the location was excellent - right opposite the cathedral and very easy to find. My only comment (not even serious to be a complaint) was that the boiler in our bathroom made quite loud noises at times and there seemed to be frequent gurgling water noises presumably from the radiator in the room, but I quickly got used to these and they did not disturb my sleep at all.
If we are ever near St Albans again I would not hesitate to stay here again.
