From the welcome to the facilities everything was perfect. We stayed with five children (and four adults) and had loads of room. The children loved the dorm room and play room. We even had tears when we had to leave. Would definitely recommend it!

                                                                                                      We stayed two nights in this gorgeous little apartment in central St Albans. The apartment is great with quirky features but modern fittings appropriate for any stay. The bedroom, lounge/kitchen and bathroom are all very separate so it really feels like home. All the things you might need were there including instructions if there was a problem. Collecting the keys was easy as was entry into the apartment and instructions for the wifi (which we all really depend on so much these days) You could eat in as the kitchen is very well equipped and Tesco and M&S are within about 5 mins walk. Equally there are probably 40 restaurants also within 5 mins walk so plenty of choice. We used it as a base to go to London one day which can be reached in about 20 minutes if you catch the right train. St Albans City station is about 15 mins walk. Just give some thought to where you might park your car. Outside is free if you can get a space but with markets on Wed and Sat you will have to move it on those days. There are pay car parks within 5 mins walk (about £10 for 24 hours parking which is not so bad) All in all a great stay and we would definite recommend and hope to stay again ourselves

We came to feel right at home here and were sorry to leave. The place is very very cozy and everything was all in order and very clean and tidy. We can highly reccomend staying here. Thank you so very much Maureen and John, for making our stay so nice and comfy. Hugs Miles and Willow
