Stayed here for one night whilst visiting friends in St Albans.
The hotel is a reasonable distance form St Albans centre by taxi, the cost between centre and hotel was less than £10. Parking at the hotel was easy and not charged for.
Stayed in a Standard Room. Room was fairly small in size but offered good storage and work areas.
Sampled the 24 Hour Room Service Menu at approximately 2AM. The presentation of the food was poor compared to other hotels I have recently stayed in. The Prawn starter I had only had about 4 small Prawns. In addition, despite ordering a large bottle of mineral water, no drink glass was provided with the Room Service tray, let alone ice.
Shower pressure was very low. Some of the fixtures in the bathroom appeared old. For example, the Mira Shower had yellowed plastic.
Reception staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
The main issue I had with the hotel was despite the outside temperature only being approximately 15 degrees, the room temperature was extremely hot to the point that it made it hard to sleep. It was possible to open a window but not enough to cool the room. If I was to stay here again, I would have to have a room with Air Conditioning.
