About the hotel

This beautiful country manor house 4 star hotel is set in a well manicured private garden including a lake and is a short walk from the city centre of St Albans - yet only 20 minutes from London by train. The 30 bedrooms are individually styled with award winning dining in a 110 seat conservatory-style restaurant overlooking the five acre garden. The hotel is perfect for dining/functions/banquets and weddings with an additional two private function rooms.

St Michaels Manor has been owned by the Newling Ward family since 1965 who converted the property into an hotel. Since then it has been run by grandfather father and son with the family still taking an active role in the management refurbishment and continual improvement of the property. With a combination of modern and classical decor the family has created a relaxed and individual ambiance with the focus on excellent service. The current building dates back to 1530 and was laid on medieval foundations that can be traced back to the 11th century. The hotel is located in the historic Roman district of St Albans with its 70 listed buildings/old inns/mills and with the famous abbey/cathedral and Roman museum and amphitheatre only 10 minutes walk away. The magnificent hotel and gardens are perfectly positioned locally and provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing and comfortable stay. With the two rosette Lake Restaurant popular with regular diners you will be in good and reputable company.

Does every hotel room in St Alban's overlook an air-conditioning unit?

I booked St Michael's because my previous trip, when I stayed at the Best Western, had me stuck in an overheated tiny single room overlooking an aircon unit.

St Michael's was a much nicer and larger room but was equally hot and equally overlooking a wall and an aircon unit. Room itself was beautifully decorated, but a slightly strange arrangement of the shower and loo being separate to the washbasin, which was located in a cupboard. Staff were lovely. If I'd been able to see them, the grounds would have been lovely, too. The wireless didn't work, and the receptionist didn't seem to think it was important.

Great service

We stayed at St Micheal's Manor for one night for a short break.

It was my husband's birthday and I asked for a treat to be in the room when we arrived and Ali at the reservation desk was brilliant at organising it. He was very helpful about booking a table for dinner that night as well. On arrival we had a polite and helpful welcome. Robert took us to our rooms and was efficient and helpful. We had a lovely dinner and again the service was brilliant. The room (Hazelwood) was overlooking the lake. It was lovely. There was a wedding going on but we had been warmed about this. The noise wasn't too bad and stopped at midnight.

Breakfast was tasty. The service from the waiting staff was impeccable. They tried there best while serving a lot of people as the wedding crowd were also there.
