This is a beautiful hotel, tucked away off the road. Parking for lots of cars. Had a lovely afternoon tea, even provided with a box to take home goodies we couldn't eat. Highly recommend,

Much to our delight we were recently invited to attend a birthday celebration at St Michaels Manor St Albans, but I’m afraid our enthusiasm didn’t last that long. The grounds were very nice, but we found the meal portions, albeit well presented, to be very...More

I don't know. They have a helpful and accommodating staff who I'm sure will be pleased to advise, and it might be a good idea to make enquiry of them before booking.

Our beautiful orangery-style Lake Restaurant offers amazing views overlooking our fabulous garden and lake. Two rosette dining at it's best. Offering a range of award winning modern British cuisine to suit all tastes, diners can choose from an A La Carte or Lake menu. The latter provides brasserie-style seasonal food, changed on a fortnightly basis from only £18 for two or £22 for three courses. A wonderful place to celebrate and very popular for Sunday lunch. Great to relax and enjoy a delicious meal with probably the best views and location in Hertfordshire. The Lake Restaurant opens daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Otherwise try a bar snack or one of our famous Afternoon teas in the hotel lounge.
