St Michael's Manor Hotel

St Albans, Hertfordshire

Luxury Double room

Deluxe Double room

Premier Double room

Stay at an award-winning, beautifully-restored old English house set in five acres of gardens, with breakfast and three-course à la carte dinner

The original house of St Michael's Manor dates back over 500 years. Set in beautiful private English country gardens with a serene one-acre lake, the hotel blends classic and contemporary decor to create an atmosphere at once relaxed and elegant.

The oak-panelled lounge, bar, and function rooms take you to the acclaimed orangery-style Lake Restaurant, which overlooks the lovely gardens and serves modern British cuisine from two menus, one of which is updated every fortnight with the latest inspirations. No wonder St Michael's is a proud recipient of VisitEngland Silver and Breakfast Awards.

You could spend your whole visit wandering the beautiful, expansive gardens and lakeside, but if you manage to tear yourself away, a pretty street takes you right into the heart of St Albans, where you can explore some of Britain's oldest pubs, designer boutiques, and of course, the grand St Albans Cathedral. The old Roman city and the Verulanium Museum are just around the corner from St Michael's Manor, around five minutes' walk away. A quick 20-minute train ride takes you into the heart of London too.
