HI Elstree is like my second home this past 19 months. I have been using this specific branch at least 4/6 x per month so I feel part of the furniture thanks to helpful and efficient staff. Special thanks to Asil, Nicholas and Pevan for their warm, friendly services and thanks to the chef for the amazing wholesome salmon salad... More

Judging by the previous reviews, it seems this is a bit of a "marmite place". It also seems to be a bit of a hotel of two halves. I am definitely staying in the "just about average" part. On check-in, it seems that the hotel was pretty much full, hence no upgrade for me as a Platinum IHG member on... More

Stayed for family wedding. Great hotel BUT only the rooms have air conditioning! All the public areas are sweltering hot. It's cool outdoors however. Sweated through wedding ceremony and dinner. Wore T-shirt to breakfast but the dining room was at least 80°F. Jonesing for some chilly air conditioning!

Recently stayed here on a trip to London and had a thoroughly pleasant stay. It's smaller than most Holiday Inns but I feel that this added to the enjoyment of our break. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had the usual facilities. One thing I did like was that there were 2 hairdriers (one attached to the wall in the... More
