Stayed as part of a trip to Harry Potter studio. Great location close to railway station, access to attraction bus service and convenient to access restaurants in town. Maria - trainee reception was lovely so helpful. Room great quite large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast also good.

Next to the Watford junction station a really well looked after holiday Inn with professional staff who can't do enough for you. The rooms are surprisingly quiet considering immediately next to the rail lines. Even though an older hotel everything was immaculate even the grouting in the bathrooms. Can't fault it

What can I say. It did its job. I was on the first floor and facing the railway so there was a constant stream of fast trains both passenger and freight most of the night. The room was clean and tidy. The TV was small and for me a little difficult to see from the bed!!!! I would say the... More

Now I would like to point out I'm not someone who usually complains about noise. I'm more the person causing loads of noise. But with this hotel you get constant noise from the trains and it sounds like more noise coming from the corridors too! It's not a great hotel. £10 for a burger £4.95 for a pint. I'm sure... More

IIf it wasn't for the price charged I would place this hotel somewhere between Travelodge and Premier Inn. Typical corporate hotel. But because of the price charged £130 per night I expect top end accommodation. Our problems started when we where given the wrong room with a keycard that didn't work so after that was sorted out we then where... More

The staff were welcoming upon arrival and were able to provide us with all necessary information. They also provided us with a slip to place in the car so we could leave it in their car park which is situated at the back of the hotel. Our room was immaculate and we were pleasantly surprised to see indicators on the... More

Me and my girlfriend stopped here for a night before visiting the Harry Potter Studios the following day. The location of the hotel is ideal whereby it was a 3 minute walk from the train station and only 10 minutes away from the town centre. The hotel staff were very friendly and the room was very pleasant too. The staff... More

My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a stay at this hotel so we could visit harry potter studios. We had travelled quite far from Preston in Lancashire. So we arrived early before the room was ready. The reception staff checked us in but couldn't give our room but they were very accommodating and let us put our bags... More

my boyfriend and I have stayed at this hotel twice, first for the harry potter studio tour and recently as a place to stay just outside the London area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is the perfect location for Harry Potter, a short walk from the train station where the bus for the tour picks you up... More
