“Nice quiet spot close to St Albans.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just a short 10 minute walk to city centre, nicely laid out with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. TV and wifi work well. The only complaint is that the kitchen was a little under equipped. Some of the pans need to be replaced.

We would return

“Great place but needs a couple of extras!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Found this rental property on TripAdvisor. Quadeer (contact person) was great at getting back to me quickly and we met with a friend (maybe family member) of hers on arrival in St. Albans. This apt is fantastic-spacious, modern, nice beds and in a very good location. It's close to a major grocery store (Sainsburys) as well as within easy walking distance to the Cathedral, park, great pubs and the outdoor market. It has two nice sized bedrooms and a large bathtub, washing machine and drying rack. Although it has a sofa bed listed as an additional bed, I would NOT count on anyone but a small child sleeping there. The sofa did not unfold and my mom, who is only 5`4`could not stretch out on it fully!!
HOWEVER, there were a few things that prevented me giving this rental a better rating. Upon arrival, we noticed only 4 bath towels for the week in the bathroom (there were 3 adults staying)-no face cloths and no hand towels. The towels were constantly damp from showering and had to use the one extra bath towel in place of a hand towel. We actually ended up buying some face cloths at the store to use for the week. Also, there wasn't a coffee maker or even a teapot which seemed very strange?? Also, only 3 teaspoons, 3 wineglasses, and no extra dishes such as a baking sheet, casserole dish, oven safe dish to use in the oven. Not sure what we were expected to use for the oven? Luckily we ended up eating out in the afternoon and only needed a small snack in the evening upon returning to the flat. Still would've been nice to have the option of picking up something to pop in the oven. In addition, the beds had pillow shams only-no pillow cases and only a duvet with a duvet cover. There wasn`t a top sheet or any additional blankets so seemed a little strange. Made me wonder if they really removed the entire duvet cover and shams each time to launder.
One last thing, because the owner didn't provide any sort of instruction sheet/booklet etc. we had no idea where to put the garbage and recycling throughout the week. We ended up just keeping it in the ktichen which wasn't too bad since we were there only 6 days but any longer and it could've been a problem. All in all, a really nice, quiet place but with a bit more attention to the little things I mentioned above, this would be a first-rate flat!!

“Ideal location, well equipped and great for families.”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

I stayed here with my wife and twin daughters in July. The flat is ideal as it has ample parking right outside. The larger of the two bedrooms was perfect for my daughters as it was cooler in the evening (we were there during the heatwave) and had enough room for our two travel cots as well as the double bed. We stayed in the smaller of the two bedrooms which was still spacious enough. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge/dining room was large enough for my daughters to play. We spent a lot of time in the park over the road as the splash park is ideal for kids of all ages and is very clean and well maintained with lovely walks around the park and lake.
