The Straw House offers an exclusive collection of serviced apartments for the discerning traveller, situated in the very heart of St Albans' historic old town.
All our apartments are of local architectural and historical significance, many are within the highly sought-after Cathedral Quarter, and several have breathtaking views of the cathedral itself.
Each of the properties has been sensitively modernised, retaining a wealth of original features, combined with tasteful, contemporary interiors.
As every apartment is unique, we have chosen to furnish each in an individual style, delivering the luxury of a boutique hotel, combined with the comfort of a more spacious and personal environment.
Our portfolio includes twenty, one or two bedroom apartments - as well as two studios. The buildings range from a 16th century cottage, refurbished hat factory and an Arts & Crafts house once owned by one of the most prominent local families.
Regardless of size, all our properties benefit from state of the art facilities, including fully fitted kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, free Wifi and Smart TVs.
However it's the unexpected things that really set The Straw House properties apart.
Our welcome packs really are welcoming: delicious biscuits and snacks - all complimentary - and sourced locally wherever possible; a selection of beverages , including teas, coffee and wine.
Children are welcome and we can provide cots on request. Pets are also welcome with prior arrangement - a comfort that few apartments offer.
Despite their quiet locations, each of our properties is in the heart of St Albans, and the benefits of city-centre living are but a stroll away.
And while nobody needs a car, parking is available to all our guests.
In short, we do all we can to provide business and leisure travellers with the comfort of home while they are away.
