We stayed at Sopwell House for our wedding anniversary and were welcomed by very friendly staff and a lovely surprise of some macaroons and rose petals on the bed. We booked the Foxglove suite and it was definitely worth the upgrade, the private gardens only accessible by guests staying in the suites are exquisite and it was nice to be...

If you are looking for a top class hotel away from the city of London but within easy reach of it then you should give Sopwell House a try. It nestles in open countryside just outside the historic town of St Albans and is exceptionally well presented. However, good as this is I was most impressed by the food and...

We stayed for one night in the Orchid Suite which is the recently refurbished Mews opposite the main hotel. The suites are all beautiful and have a private terrace which lead to a gated court yard area with a jacuzzi/hydrapool separate from the main hotel.

Fabulous afternoon tea for a friend's hen party. Big thanks to Mauritzio & Guiseppe for making it happen so smoothly. The cakes & sandwiches were delicious. The Pimms was mixed to perfection. And such a gorgeous setting, what a perfect location to celebrate such a lovely event.
