Clarion Collection Hotel, St Albans, Hertfordshire

Ria from Supplier Team, August 2019

Located in the heart of the historic town of St Albans, the Clarion Collection Hotel is an ideal spot for those looking to explore the town and have a fantastic two night break! The hotel is a grade II listed building with a traditional feel to it from the outside, yet the inside boasted a modern and contemporary twist.

We checked in and were given a permit so we could park the car in a secure, nearby car park. We were then shown to our bedroom which was a great size, had fully functioning air conditioning and a very comfortable bed – everything we needed for a peaceful night’s sleep.

The hotel is situated right in the centre of the town, so there were plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and a market right on the door step. We spent our 2 night break exploring St Albans and enjoyed the wonderful restaurants, quirky bars and the old fashioned cinema. For those who would prefer to stay at the hotel, they have a bar which is open 24 hours and work with Café Rouge next door so you can order dinner from there using room service!

The breakfast was served each morning between 8:30am-10:30am, which meant we could have a nice lie in before starting the day with a hearty meal. The breakfast was buffet style with a range of things to choose from, so you could help yourself to a full English, a selection of cereals, fruits, pastries, juices, teas and coffee. For those who have a sweet tooth, there was even a waffle maker with all sorts of delicious toppings you could cover your waffles in!

Overall, we had a wonderful 2 night break at a lovely hotel, in a fantastic location – we will definitely be returning and are looking forward to our next visit!

Top Tip
Be sure to save some room after your breakfast for waffles! They have a waffle making machine where you can help yourself and cover these in chocolate sauce, marshmallows, chocolate balls and smarties if you have a sweet tooth!

My wife received this voucher for her birthday. We chose Oxford/ Banbury to stay as the location. Lovely Hotel at Whately Manor. We paid for an extra night on the Sunday. Buffet style breakfast etc, sensible size room. Hotel Central to all the amenities. Couldn’t fault anything.

We enjoyed our stay (a Retirement gift) at The White Swan, 5 mins drive fron Arundel. It is by the busy A27, but we had a room at the back so the traffic was not so noticeable. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant had local items on the menu. Arundel itself was picturesque and we can thoroughly recommend a visit to Arundel Castle and wonderful gardens. There are lots of different attractions in the area to suit all tastes and also near to the coast. A great 2 days in June and very hot!

Loved choosing where to stay. Great choice of areas. Opted for Birmingham’s Plough & Harrows. Just stunning and superb location for the canal trust and Black Country living museum. The Botanical gardens are a very short walk away and well worth a visit.

We wanted a few days in Birmingham to visit some National Trust properties, particularly the old back-to-back houses. The venue was in a good location, near the botanic gardens and just about walkable to the city centre. Plenty of opportunities for shopping and eating, a good city to visit, less frantic than London! Hotel staff were pleasant and breakfast was good but the building itself is tired and shabby with horrid 60s style accommodation block at the back.However the room was clean and it has good parking once you've found the entrance!

No I do not recommend this product.

Bought this as a birthday gift for other half. TBH choice of places you could stay was pretty limited A few more eliminated from the possibilities once we checked Trip Advisor. The place we ended up at was a bit like Crossroads circa 1970 with variable staff and a group of contractors pretty much our only other guests. And sadly the language being bandied around meant we spent little time in the bar - a bit of a pain as we were right out of town and little alternative Wouldn’t buy this again. Other companies do it better. Sorry
