This hotel offered a first rate service, the grilled full English breakfasts were delicious and attractively served. The room was exceptionally clean and well serviced. The manager in particular was very friendly and helpful, but all the staff were approachable and professional.
Parking is ample and the grounds, hanging baskets etc all reflect attention to detail. We shall use this hotel again without doubt.

Room Tip: All have double glazing, so noise is not a problem.

My family and I stayed here for a couple of nights for a nearby wedding. The rooms were v clean and had everything you would expect to find. It was a bit cramped with two singles and a double in one room and we could hear noise from the bar. The staff were all very friendly. The breakfast room was lovely and the food was good, although the portions on the full English were perhaps a bit stingy. All in all a good stay. I didn't get chance to try the restaurant but heard it was wonderful.

Our son has already posted a review on his wedding experience at this fantastic hotel. We can only reiterate everything he has written.
We first attended a wedding reception at The Ardmore House Hotel 5 years ago and were so impressed by the venue, the exceptional food and friendly staff that when our son announced his forthcoming wedding we immediately thought of Ardmore House Hotel. It was everything we could have wished for, for such an important occasion. This is such an intimate hotel in a lovely setting close to the town centre of St Albans with pretty gardens. The reception room looked stunning in gold and cream with tables immaculately set - the food was exceptional with so many guests commenting on the quality and quantity and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendlier. We would highly recommend anyone getting married in the future to consider Ardmore House Hotel - we know they wont be disappointed and will be left with memories of a wonderful day at this little gem of a hotel. Our biggest thanks to all the staff who made our son's wedding day so very special and unforgettable.

We attended a wedding here a week ago and just loved the gardens! The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were to fantastic, clean and very pretty. The food was perfect, I asked for no sauce with my steak and they where happy to help. Would definitely go back.

Another short but good stay at the Ardmore. Best st Albans hotel by far. Plenty of parking, warm welcome and comfortable rooms. Perfect for local area or London. Bit warm but its not Wales!

If you cant face London traffic then use train 10 mins walk.

Recently had a wedding reception at this hotel. Everything seemed to be too much trouble. They really spoilt my special day, all of my guests were complaining. The staff were grumpy and snapping at the guests, there was no champagne, flowers or even a Snickers in our room! Because the hotel were tight and wouldn't pay out for more staff- my guests were late for the ceremony, i could go on and on but i just wish I could turn back time...
