Excellent Omboo
One night stay only to attend a 60th birthday party in St. Albans. Had a drink in the bar and then a meal at Omboo…was excellent ! Did not make use of the Spa unfortunately. Will most certainly return for a two night Spa stay at some stage.

I always have an impeccable experience staying at Sopwell House. Staff are great, attentive, very accommodating and well versed at keeping guests comfortable and relaxed. Cannot fault the facilities - restaurants, spa, lounging areas - all are amazing. A special home experience away from home and I can’t wait to return again.
