I had the unfortunate experience of having to stay in the Ardmore for two nights whilst on business. The check-in was an abrupt affair, I was allocated a single room in the adjoining building. The room was stiflingly hot so much so that I had to turn all the radiators off, and open the windows. Whilst in the bar I...

Staff very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Allowed me to park when I caught train to London, and 10 minute walk to station. Evening meal fresh, Italian and served in dining room. There was a residents special menu of 2 courses for 14.99. Room clean and warm, bathroom very clean. Great breakfast in the morning, with good choice...

Very reasonable for the money. Very friendly staff, and eating in the restaurant was definitely a good move. The room was clean and the breakfast substantial. But the coffee at breakfast... is there really any excuse for rubbish (tasted like instant) coffee in 2017? The one thing I would change (apart from the breakfast coffee) is the signage round the...

I stayed here for business travel. The rooms are small, but comfortable. They are beautifully decorated with antique furniture, but didn't fit a masculine style. The bathroom is tiny and hard to maneuver inside. The staff is very friendly. They offer a full breakfast each morning. They also have a full bar in the lobby. Wi-Fi is free and throughout...

3 night stay on business. Decor is somewhat dated in style, but the place is warm and comfortable, and very clean and tidy. My single room was small, but well furnished with a comfortable bed. Staff were friendly and the food and service were excellent. I will definitely stay here again on future trips.

We stayed at Ardmore House on New Years eve as we were attending a NYE bash in St Albans. We checked in early and they were able to give us access to our room which was a plus (around midday). It was a 7 minute walk from the St Albans City train station and 14 minute walk from the hotel...

Stayed here on business travel for three weeks. Not too far from the train station / city center, with a small car-park at the back of the hotel. A little "faulty towers" in decor - with a communal iron attached to the wall in the lobby - however the rooms were quite homely with lots of storage space. Very friendly...

The Ardmore is one of those hotels which could be so much better than it really is. The location looks fine on the website but it is actually located on a busy road with lots of traffic noise. Our room was tiny, no room to swing the proverbial cat, with a small double bed basically taking up all of the...
