Clarion Collection Hotel St Albans City Centre

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great room, with all the amenities. Good wi-fi connect. Shower/tub hot water any time with no drop off at peak hours. Staff most accommodating and efficient and a cozy bar for a quiet drink (or two). Location is perfect, adjoining a super eatery. Parking is free, although a tad quirky. Quirky, in a nice way, though. Easy, easy, walking distance of the more than 1000 year old historical places of this wonderful town.

My second stay at this hotel. My husband and I along with our daughter and her husband loved every bit of it. Beginning with the reception staff who were excellent - efficient, warm and welcoming. My daughter and I was fortunate to get the same rooms as last time. They were happy and so were we. Clean, spacious room. We all slept very well. We stayed just to 're-charge our batteries' after a hectic festive period. The breakfast was great as was the staff. We will be back.

Stayed from 30th December - 31st December. Great hotel with good service. Arrived just after 3pm and check in was a smooth process. We stayed in room 112 which had twin beds. It was clean with a good sized TV. Bathroom was modern. It’s a standard modern hotel room so not much to describe. Towels and L'occitane bathroom toiletries are provided. The shampoo bottles are tiny and I have a lot of hair that needed to be washed so I called up to reception and they very quickly came to my room with an extra two bottles (I forgot to grab some bottles whilst out in the town centre). They unfortunately did not have conditioner. Shampoo was great though. Check out was also quick. I would stay at Clarion Collection should I visit St. Albans again.

We stayed here to visit the Cathedral and found it to be very comfortable and clean. All facilities- iron and board, hairdryer, kettle, lovely tea, coffee and chocolate and the room safe were available. The staff were helpful, polite and all spoke good English. Our only disappointment was being 2 floors away from our other family members despite booking the 2 rooms at the same time, 6 months prior to our visit.

Stayed here with 7 family members on Boxing Day night. We all found the rooms very comfortable and pristine clean. All staff members were friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast. We'll certainly stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for its close proximity to the cathedral. The room was clean and the staff cheerful. Only problem was parking. There are only a handful of spaces in the back of the hotel. The hotel offers parking in two other places. We had to park in the farthest one which was close to ten minutes' walking distance.

Staff were good and friendly and helpful to me.they reserved a disabled space for us.Ryder Bar good menu.The disabled room was comfortable. The buffet breakfast good choice especially the scrambled egg. Would stay again

Very good hotel and in an excellent location for all amenities. Thought the breakfast was slightly better next door at cafe rouge. One small niggle..the safe in the room was so low in the cupboard that both myself and wife had trouble getting down that low to use it. Overall really lovely stay with very friendly staff.

We stayed here for two nights on a short break. The Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. They made us feel very welcome throughout our stay and assisted us in every way they could. The bedroom was very clean and the room was of an average size. The Hotel is located in the centre of town and is ideally suited for visiting shops and restaurants. We would come back to this Hotel again and we loved St Alban's city.

We have stayed here twice now, and will be returning. The staff are friendly and professional, the rooms clean, comfy and reasonably priced. Location is great, next to Cathedral and river path if you are interested in walking. Easy walk to both rail stations. Cafe Rouge right next door and lots of other places to eat out. The hotel breakfast is a varied hot and cold buffet with plenty of options. Lovely hotel.
