This hotel was recommended by a friend I liked it and I will book this hotel again when visiting family. friendly helpful staff. clean room. Tea coffee chocolate in room. Convenient location in city centre.

We were in St Albans for a wedding so really just need a convenient hotel. The clarion exceeded my expectations on this front. The hotel was very clean and tidy, quite a grand entrance and bar, very pleasant. Room was decent size and bathroom was good. We didn't include breakfast so cannot comment, but it was nice to have free parking at a hotel, even if the overspill car park was a bit of a walk.

Well located in central St Albans, near to many restaurants and good shopping. The room was comfortable, in very good condition, well-appointed (lots of sockets!), clean and with an excellent ensuite bathroom. The staff were cheerful and helpful. Did not eat there so no comment possible. Recommended.

First class friendly hotel .I Found the Staff polite helpful and friendly . Spotlessly clean all over and the Room comfortable and warm and a top class buffet breakfast . Location good on high street near Cathedral. Adequate car parking and a number of pubs and restaurants near . Highly Recommend 👍👍

Situated in the heart of St Albans within walking distance to its many great bars and restaurants this hotel was excellent value for money. I cannot comment on the food as we ate elsewhere but the breakfast is charged at £10 which is very good considering the proximity to London where you're more likely to pay £20! The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. We overlooked the car park and didn't notice any noise at all. The staff were friendly and helpful and overall I can't fault our stay here. Would definitely stay again!

We just love this gem of a hotel, in the centre, lovely furnishings and rooms, all very modern and comfortable. The staff on the desks and at breakfast are so nice and friendly, lovely to chat to and advise on good restaurants in the town. We are never disappointed when we come to visit family, such great value for the rooms and breakfast. Thanks again to staff especially Charley and the man at breakfast, such a funny guy. Looking forward to our next visit!

Impressive reception area. Rooms large and clean. Needs a little updating but it was absolutely fine. Close to centre and Cathedral. Parking is a short distance a way. Staff were excellent...the best thing about the hotel. Would stay again. It is exactly as described.

Ok, it’s not hidden but it’s a great find! There are a few options in St Albans but if definitely stay here again. Centrally located, very friendly staff on arrival and departure. Rooms clean and comfortable with good supply of quality tea and coffee inc biscuits! Toiletries good quality too, shower powerful and hot, WiFi good enough for web based conference calls too. Top marks!

Chose this hotel because it was adjacent to the Cathedral. Parking is included and was fully explained with a detailed map on Check in. Ok to leave the car the following day after checkout. Our room was standard and adequate although on the lower ground and looking out onto the car outside. Tv was slow to warm up with fuzzy lines across the bottom. Did not take the extra breakfast so the cost was reasonable. The bar is open 24 hours to residents and quite comfortable. 2 minutes walk to the Cathedral for the funeral service. Most of the shops etc are a good walk up the hill. Oh and shower curtain was well behaved.

Hotel is very central, the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Most Parking is offsite but only a short walk away and you can drop off bags first. Also I was able to leave my car in the car park after checking out for no extra charge which was very helpful.
