I visit dear friends every year in St.Albans. Us 3 chaps (sans wives) have a boys afternoon culminating in a curry. I have stayed over the years in several B&B's In St.Albans to varying degrees of success. Fern Cottage met my high standards. Room spotless and welcoming. Landlady so very sweet. Well done Fern Cottage.

We recently stayed at Fern cottage as we had a family wedding in St Albans. The room was just what we needed, comfy bed, and clean and cosy ensuite. Our host Dorothea and Basil were very welcoming and enjoyed our stay.

Reviewed 29 October 2011

was disappointing as I requested per mail at least twice that no air freshner was to be used in our room as I am allergic to it and I was assured tht would be attented to, when we arrived after a 24 hr flight I found 3 lots of air freshner in the room and loo and I just got a shrug from the house keeper when I mentioned my request. I feel the place could do with a thorough spring clean and they would not need air freshners!

myself and my Labrador Alfie had the ground floor twin with en suite and it was comfy, warm, clean and friendly. What more could any man and his dog ask for!!!

Arriving from Luton Airport, exhausted from travelling I couldnt have been made more welcome by Dorothy. The room was fresh, clean and very comfortable. I had a great nights sleep on an excellent mattress, just what the doctor ordered. The price is more than reasonable and with a delicious continental breakfast included. I will definately be returning.
