The bed was tiny, a small queen size bed for two adults - maybe if your a cuddly sleeper...otherwise you constantly keep yourself from falling out. Also it was quite loud until very late at night (2am) and again very early in the morning (6am). Lot's of noise from the hallways such as slamming doors and conversations outside on the parking lot, even with the windows closed.
wonderful experience. Go out with family to Victoria park and shopping centre and the beach was such great place to behold with lots of children playgrounds, pubs and eating places. Will like to visit soon
We had a very comfortable stay in the Balcony Suite. We had originally booked Nelsons Look Out but the stairs leading to this room at the top of the house would have been too difficult for us. Therefore I think it should be mentioned that the stairs would not be suitable for everyone as there is no lift in the house.
Stopped here for one night for business. Limited on-site parking, but no restrictions street parking outside, for which there's plenty. Pleasant staff though had limited contact save check-in and out. Hotel is about 10 minutes' walk to the town centre or the promenade, and a few minutes walk to the nearest section of coast. Room was clean, warm and comfortable, but the walls are a bit thin.

"Lovely old hotel, management not quite so lovely"
We checked in on Sunday evening, tired from a drive. We remarked that there was a restaurant adjacent. The women at the desk remarked dourly that there was, but it was closed. She did not offer any suggestions so we made our way into town and found a nice pub. The next day we explored the grounds, which are very pretty. Walking in St. Albans is a little tricky. The streets are crowded, dark at night and narrow, however driving at night is almost impossible. We loved the town, the Velarium, the parks and the Cathedral.
