Premier Inn St. Albans/Bricket Wood Hotel
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in St Albans
Reviewed 14 October 2011

This is the second time we've stopped as the hotel and mainly because the first was so good.
The location is great, easy to find, quiet when you're here, perfect for the kids.
We stopped this time as we wanted to use it as a base as we were visiting Legoland, London and Woburn, and it couldn't be better. 30 mins to Legoland, 5 min drive to Radlett to get the train into London and Woburn is just up the road.
The hotel and rooms are the chains normal standard, although the double bed we had was very soft, but the boys enjoyed their single beds.
Staff are helpful and friendly, and make the stay as effortless as possible.
Overall this hotel is set in a great location, and is very handy to use as a base for exploring.

Everything expected to give a good nights sleep was provided, no fault with the sleeping aspect.
Hotel rooms are tired and are in need of a refresh, but they are clean and tidy which is the most important thing.
Shower very weak, but again clean and warm.
Would stay here again, but Premier Inn need to make sure they keep up the standards of the accommodation.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights to visit relations in the area and in London. Had dinner on the first night there which was excellent - best steak since the last time I ate in a Beefeater. The setting is lovely and the buildings have been well converted from an old water mill. Hotel itself was the usual Premier set up, could do with a little updating, new TV's and better showers but otherwise fine. Location very easy to get to M25 and into London but set in lovely countryside.

Room Tip: No lift so remember to ask for ground floor room if needed

This is a wonderful place to stay if you are planning a trip into London and dont want any hassle. Stanmore station is only 15 mins drive away which is the start of the jubilee Line. Country setting, spacious rooms and all in all fabulous value for money

On arrival at reception we were met by a very attentive lady who ensured that we were made aware of all aspects associated with our stay at the hotel. This included arranging breakfast and reserving a table for evening meal. She then went the extra mile in assisting us with our travel arrangements including printing off maps which we found most helpful.
The room was very spacious as was the bathroom and both were spotlessly clean. We have stayed in far more expensive hotels and not had a room of this quality.
There was more than adequate parking and the hotel is ideally placed for onward travel to St Albans and central London. We travelled into London from Radlett station and it was only about 20 minutes. Radlett station is only 5 minutes drive from the hotel and parking for all day at weekends was only £2 !!
The only slight problem we encountered during our stay was not the fault of the hotel but of a drunken returning wedding guest who was a little loud for the early hours !
To sum up, I consider this hotel to be excellent value and all the staff deserve credit for this. I would definitely recommend it and intend to return in the future when visiting the area.

The hotel is fine, pergaps just a tad above average for a Premier Inn, but its setting just away from surrounding motorways makes it feel as if yoiu are in the heart of the countryside. The main thing to mention though is the adjacent restaurant, where the food was excellent and the service outstanding. Worth visiting for the meal alone.
