Myself & my other half stayed here July 22nd as we were visiting the Harry Potter studios in Watford the following day. The hotel was well priced (for London) and only a 15 min drive to the studios, so it was perfect for us. It's also close to Rickmansworth town centre so we only had a 5 min drive to... More

Well this is conveniently placed hotel near Watford, M25, m40 & M1but is a tired hotel and needs an update which is a shame The staff are welcoming, FREE Wifi in the rooms The rooms are basic and sad. I would have thought Old English Inns would have updated this hotel. It is busy so no lack of customers. The... More

This was our fourth visit to this hotel over the past few years and boy has this place gone down hill. Firstly lets get the good bits out of the way... Good price for two nights that included breakfast. Excellent breakfast, good service, quality food.

How any genuine traveller can say they enjoyed staying at this grubby, shabby, smelly and dirty accommodation is beyond me. the poor staff are trying their best but it is literally shocking in every way. Broken celing tiles, stench of damp and uncleanliness, heavily stained carpets. We arrived, checked in, went out, came back and whilst getting changed to go... More

Having stayed in the Long Island Hotel before we didn't have the highest expectation but needed a cheap overnight stay in Rickmansworth. It has been two years since we stayed and we were shocked by just how far downhill a place can go in this time. The whole hotel smelt like a stale pub, the public areas have threadbare carpets,...

Just spent my first 2 nights in the UK for over 30 years here. Ok, the place does need repainting and some of the corridors need a good airing, but... The bed, although it looked lumpy was really comfy, the TV worked and there was plenty of tea and coffee and biscuits. The staff, one word - amazing. Girls on... More
