Stayed Sunday night with my niece, as we were going to a BBC recording late morning. Its about twenty minutes walk from Elstree Studios, so not bad location, though Ibis, Premier Inn and Travelodge all closer. The staff were excellent, main areas looked smart, clean and spacious. Didn't use pool and gym but they looked fine. The room was decent... More

Had a chance to stay at this hotel, after a very last minute booking. I was tired to continue my drive feeder so I walked in, and made reservation on-line. Very easy and quick. Had few drinks at the bar, not the fastest service, but i was happy anyway. Building exterior is nice, but once you walk in, and going... More

Arrived for 2 night stay. On arrival was welcomed with a warm smile from a young lady on the desk. Stayed in room 229, light in the bathroom was flashing, reported this to reception only to be told they could not fix the issue but did offer a replacement room. I asked if it could be fixed during the day... More

The room we had the ball in was lovely, nicely laid out and we had a nice little reception room with our own bar. The food was superb - especially add they had to cook for a large group of... More

I had an issue with my room, and I cant put words to how amazing the staff were. The reception lady, Emma, was super lovely and gave us a free breakfast while we waited for the manager, Alice, who was caught up in the normal morning staff meeting. The breakfast was nice, and the kitchen/restaurant staff are very accommodating. We... More

Very nice and handy if you need to visit the main town for training/business purposes. A nice 10 minute drive from main town centre. Rooms very clean and tidy, I unfortunately didn't have a tv remote so had to control channels and volume by the tv. There's spa facilities available. If I needed to go here again I would stay...

Dear Sophie Q Thank you for your positive review of the Holiday Inn London-Elstree. I am glad that you had an enjoyable stay. I hope that the issue with the remote was not too inconvenient, we do keep spares at reception as sometimes guests do pack them by mistake meaning they are missing for the next guest in the room....
