If you want to see St Albans this is the ideal location. Easy to find, good car park and friendly staff. We stayed for just one night and overall we did enjoy our stay. The hotel is a mixture of being a classy manor house, modern refurbished rooms and en suites to match. Unfortunately there is a feel of tiredness in a number of areas albeit well maintained and equipped. The grounds are lovely but as there was so much rain, we could not take advantage. We stayed on a Monday and it was very quiet in the hotel, there only seemed to be three or four other residence. Our room was right at the top of the hotel - 2nd floor loft room. The view from one of the two windows was the air conditioning plant positioned a metre or so from the window. I suppose we were a bit disappointed about the room and would have preferred a room on the first floor, but our room was clean and well equipped. The breakfast was fine in terms of the quality of food and amount. However the service was very slow and we had to remind both the waiter and waitress about things, but it did not spoil things. I think we would come back because of the location and friendly staff but I think it is a little expensive.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This magnificent town-house hotel, set in five acres of beautiful English country gardens with lake, is remarkably close to the city centre. The Newling Ward family converted the 500 year-old building in 1965 and continue to own and run the hotel. The 30 bedrooms are individually styled, with many overlooking the lake and gardens, and the award-winning orangery style restaurant shares the same views. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, bar snacks, cream teas and dinner served in a choice of dining areas. ... more less
