Having read the numerous other reviews by people who stayed here when visiting Harry Potter World, decided to book a room here for two nights. We arrived two hours before the stated check in time, but this was not a slight issue and they were extremely pleasant, the manager even accompanied us to our room when our first clock in... More

If you're after close to the station and a comfortable, quiet night's sleep this is your perfect spot; but not for anyone look for close to the city centre, it's a bit of a walk out of town. As a hotel is wonderful; comfortable beds, clean and modern rooms; free wifi and a good selection of food and drinks in... More

we stayed here from Friday to Sunday as we had come to see the Harry Potter studio tour. When we arrived our sat nav led us to a little car park round the back but we were unsure if it was for the hotel. So I went in to ask. It was you have to pay £5 a day for... More

Double room booking made through Gala hotels at very competitive price. Only shortcoming was parking arrangements which cost extra £5 for a private car park immediately to rear of hotel paid for at the hotel reception. Was advised by phone that there were 15 free parking spaces to front of hotel, but these did not exist! Otherwise would recommend on... More

We booked this hotel as part of a weekend away to see the Harry Potter studio tour. I managed to book the wing night, but the woman working the check in desk was so friendly and helpful. She even managed to fix our booking and change it to that night. The room was spacious and comfy and the breakfast was... More

A nice welcoming hotel when you walk through the door, bright, clean and fairly new looking. Check in brilliant - Sara the 'trainee' was superb, helpful, friendly and informative...especially after an issue with the very nice bonus point voucher I was given for my loyalty club membership... Management at the hotel - please keep hold of her and remove the... More

We stayed at this hotel in order to visit Harry Potter. It is very close to the shuttle bus if you want to use it, but we drove there. The staff are lovely. The hotel was pristine clean and the bedroom large. The bedroom floors were also secure because you needed a key-card to use the lifts. I loved the... More

Spotlessly clean Hotel, really friendly staff. The hotel should warn you that parking is limited and that they charge £5 per day. The breakfast is the usual uninspiring selection of tasteless scrabbled eggs, poor quality sausages and cold baked beans. Should have remembered other Holiday Inn. Go for the freshly cooked Croissants, toast and jam. For visiting Harry Potter this... More

Well placed for Watford junction station, just a few minutes walk away. Which also has the shuttle bus for Harry Potter Studio! The rooms were spacious and clean as was the entire hotel. Breakfast was lovely and we also enjoyed an evening meal there too. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of other comments about the noise. I personally need... More

The hotel is centrally located, a minute from Watford Junction train station and 10-15 mins walk to town centre. Rooms are clean and functional if a little uninspiring. Comfortable beds, quiet, a good night's sleep. Rooms were a bit chilly in January but "air con" heating kicked in eventually. Buffet breakfast of cereal, bread, sausage, beans, scrambled eggs was sufficient... More
