“Perfect!!”
Reviewed 5 May 2011

What a perfect short stay we had! Beautiful Georgian home, fantastic hosts - Carol and Barry - very homely room, tv, refreshments (including a biscuit tin!), internet, all those lovely extra touches; bottles of drinking water in room, daily tidy, fresh towels, bath robes, toiletries etc. Fab power shower in the bathroom! All that you could ever want for breakfast - cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants, and a full English - cooked to perfection! Space for car. A beautiful homely place to stay. 2 doubles and 1 single - we chose our room!
We will definately be returning, when we go and see the family in St Albans, and would recommend this fab B & B to anyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely.....

Stayed here overnight as a pitstop to explore the area. Very welcoming and accomodating (getting up early so we could have breakfast before our train). Room lovely, had everything we needed, very comfortable and immaculate. Lovely bathroom as well, not quite next door but only just down the corridor with great shower and bath. Highly recommended.

We were initially booked into the property at 20 Keyfield Tce but on arrival we were checked into 69 Albert St - 3 bedrooms instead of 2!!!!!!
Gorgeous character cottage in a fab location. Even has a private outdoor courtyard for warmer weather. Lots of great pubs nearby for good food and drinks!
Got there early - on 26 December!!!! - which wasn't a problem. Lovely personal service.
Dryer was broken down but owners took care of it for us.
Heating timers were even adjusted to accommodate us arriving from India and finding the snowy conditions a little challenging.
Plenty of food and ground coffee provided. Daily housekeeping. Clean bathroom with lovely shower. TV in every bedroom with DVDs and videos provided (our kids loved that!). Even a library of books left behind. Maps of local attractions provided and a noticeboard with important info.
It was just one of those places where you stay on holiday and find yourself thinking "oooh, could we do this permanently?" just because you love it all so much.

Perfect stop for a few nights away. Warm welcome from hosts, clean and comfortable room (especailly the bed), T.V. broadband, and DVD player! The bathroom is large and spacious, finished to a very high spec with fantastic power shower and large bathtub, and right next to bedrooms. Bathrobes are provided.
Great breakfast with proper saussies and large selection of cereals etc.
