We LOVED our stay at Torrington Hall! It was a short visit made ultra fabulous by the staff there - a massive, spotlessly clean room with a great view, restaurant bookings at a really busy time during the Eat Out scheme, gorgeous pastries in the room on arrival and a late check out - just some of the awesome perks we received! We were so well taken care of, all with such kindness and care. Staff also gave us invaluable tips on where to go with our 6 year old. The location is great too - a lovely 5-7 minute walk to the Cathedral, Verulamium Park, shops and restaurants in the city centre. Cannot wait to return here!

We chose this wonderful hotel to celebrate our recent engagement. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special and treated throughout. From being given the best room in the well located hotel to complimentary champagne, strawberry and cake surprises, the staff went above and beyond to treat us for a weekend to remember. Thank you, we hope to return soon!

We contacted Torrington Hall as we needed accommodation and meeting rooms for some of my healthcare workers in the team and they were great. Easily accommodated the 2 metre rule and nothing was too much trouble. They organised lunch for us on both days, your just a walk into town 2 mins and there's free parking. Bedroom was lovely and big, bed was very comfortable. Would definitely recommend. We'll be back for sure.

As a family we hired 2 of the conference rooms, with use of a kitchen to host a family Christmas meal, 23 of us. A number of the family also stayed over. What a day, what a great venue and a superb service. The Rooms were decorated with Christmas trees and decorations - very festive. We got early access to the rooms and kitchen to set up and cook, the staff on duty were extremely helpful and supportive helping to ensure that our special day went without a hitch. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Torrington Hall, I would recommend this as a venue for anyone and everyone.

It's easy to miss the place - there's no signpost pointing the way, but on the gateposts out front there's a plaque marked TORRINGTON HOUSE. The entrance to the car park is actually up the road to the right, then immediately left; it's not signposted (but apparently they're doing something about that). No matter which car park you use, you'll still need to walk around to the entrance at the main road side. We were greeted warmly, warned that there was no breakfast nor evening meals but pointed up the town and recommended places to try out. Our room was high up on the top floor and *huge* with some traditional old-fashioned furniture in keeping with its age yet with clean, modern touches (e.g.: bedside power points, dimmable lighting, wifi, flat-screen TV etc)... there was nothing decrepit about this place. In the room was a personalised letter covering all details we needed to know, as well as some toiletries provided - but there were also plenty down in the shared bathroom along with spare towels... everything felt very well-organised. The shared bathroom itself was only just outside the door; I enjoyed a good warm shower and the room itself was pretty warm too, despite the chilly night. For the amount we paid, it was pretty reasonable and an excellent stay away. I picked it as a stopping-off point outside London to break up a journey to Hull, and didn't know what to expect - but after my stay I'm seriously toying with the idea of a return visit to explore more of St Alban's.
