“Comfortable basic hotel - surprisingly quiet for location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2011

The setting was very nice. You would not know you were 100 metres from the M25. They don't try to be any more than a basic business travelers hotel, and they succeed. Room was comfortable and fairly basic in appointment - although necessities were available for a charge. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Another chain that does not provide free wifi - seems odd for a business stay hotel. Attached restaurant was fine. Minimal sound proofing between floors meant we heard the upstairs people a few times. Bath/shower was quite narrow.

Room Tip: Upstairs at the back.

Reasonable location, though not very well signposted en route or as you got closer. Staff were welcoming, rooms were clean and well appointed. Overall cleanliness was very good, the place was bright. Only downside was the adjacent Beefeater where we went for a drink - it was dingy and dowdy, the bar area was tiny.

Room Tip: Room away from the entrance - was very quiet

Premier Inn st Albans - grand countryside around- within reach of London, but station
parking can be a trial. Welcoming and approachable staff and excellent eating in the Mill
Restaurant.

Although difficult to find with my own sat nav - dont be put off. This is an excellent hotel, great country location yet near M25/M1 - highly professional and friendly staff and one of the quietest hotels I have ever stayed in despite being close to M25. Handly novel pub next door - everything you need, highly recommended.

Despite not being the easiest of Premier Inns to get to, Bricket Wood is well worth the drive. Hotel is very clean and the usual excellent staff with friendly reception staff. The real bonus is the picturesque suuroundings.
The Beefeater is situated in a converted mill, still with working wheel. The low ceilings actually add to the character of the place. While the breakfast and evening meal were excellent value

Best value for money and clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Good meals provided, usually in next door premises.

Room Tip: All we have used have been very quiet.
