Hotel was fine as was the room and the amenities. Just a note about parking, which does seem a bit of an issue here. The car park in the grounds is very limited, probably about eight cars if all parked sensibly. There are two other car parks but as we had no directions, either on the website or the confirmation it presented a problem, even in daylight. When checking in, the reception asks if you have a car and where it is parked. Invariably guests will have parked some way from the hotel. Then, it's a case of returning to the car, parking in one of the few designated spaces, one is eight minutes walk away and then returning to the hotel. So checking in and parking can take half an hour to three quarters of an hour. It might be a good idea to put directions to the car parks on the confirmations, together with a map. If the pass that is issued after checking in could be incorporated into the confirmation it would mean considerable less time spent trying to sort it all out and lower the frustration levels that we and fellow guests were experiencing when we arrived.

Thank you for your recent review.

I appreciate you taking the time to comment on your experience with regards to car parking. We are in the process of merging our confirmation emails / letters with parking instructions and possibly maps to eliminate further confusion and misunderstanding for guests who are not familiar with the St Albans area and also our 3 car parks we have available for our guests.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel in the near future
