We love this place!!! It's in the ideal location for the Centre of London with the train and tube on its doorstep. We have stayed on a number of occasions from birthdays, valentines, NFL Wembley games and Christmas and have enjoyed our stay so much. At the end of the day it's a place to lay your head after a...

I was booked into this place through my work, when I arrived I was greeted by a guy on reception & his opening line to me was DO YOU WANT A GOOD ROOM! What a surprise that was. When I went to my room it was so DIRTY, DATED & STANK OF SMOKING I decided to check out & leave.... More

There is a sign in the lobby that the hotel is closing on 21 September 2014. The people in reception are very pleasant but the state of disrepair and the state of the decoration is shocking. The sheets and bath appeared fresh and clean but the rest was not.

Long Island has been part of the Rickmansworth Landscape for over 100 years but it shuts its doors on 21st September. At the moment there are some excellent bargains to be had for bed and breakfast at this hotel. staff are really friendly and hard working and breakfast is really tasty with plenty of choice. ok rooms are very basic...

I will start by saying if you haven't stopped in other hotels for last than £50 a night for two people with 30 minutes of Central London, then brace yourself. It smells of stale ashtray and is I need of some investment, but we paid £130 for 3 nights so I was personally expecting worse. So the pros... the beds... More

Let me first say that this hotel wasn't booked by ourself but through a travel agency, If I had read the reviews before I would never had made a reservation in this hotel. The corridors smell like old wet socks, our bed looked like someone had been sleeping in it and the sheets were just straightened a bit. The bathroom... More

We needed a place to lay our heads for a few hours, having settled 93 year old mother in law into her home after a long stay in hospital. I had found the nearest hotel to her home on Laterooms and thought we were getting a real bargain at £40! I phoned to say we would not get there till... More

We were originally booked into Ivy House at Chalfont St Giles for the weekend, but they double-booked and did not inform me. Having said that, the Long Island at Rickmansworth more than made up for the poor showing by the Ivy. For less than half the price for a night (Ivy - £85, LI - £40) it was truly worth... More

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
