If you ask for something you never get an answer. Missus and I loved the decore and the room was nice, even a few common hotel room snags here and there. This is can forgive, but not upper market priced food, served the same as you get in weatherspoons for half the price. Defrosted cibatta that had started to stale,... More

This hotel is two minutes walk from Watford junction station which has frequent trains non stop to London Euston. You can use the oyster system so really cheap to get to London and back. It's usual holiday inn express, functional rather than fabulous. That said the beds are comfy, you have everything you need and the rooms are quiet. Breakfast... More

I really appreciate you taking time time to express your experience. We always take pride in having the train station right next to our hotel along with express trains to London Euston and the shuttle bus to Harry potter Studio. Our room prices are often very affordable and pleased to hear that you had a good deal. Thank you again... More

Booked this hotel to be close to Harry Potter Studio tour the following day (ten minutes drive away). On day of checking in went into London to watch a West End Show, this hotel is perfectly placed, only five minutes walk from a Watfor Junction railway station which takes you to Euson, you can pick up the tubes from there....

Stayed overnight whilst on business. Room fully functional, absolutely no frills. Small bathroom without bath; shower only. Hotel did not accommodate my request for a double bed and was instead given two singles. Hotel is what it purports to be: express. The room price is somewhat disproportionate. Breakfast selection was limited and almost entirely devoid of fresh fruit. The appearance... More

It's an economic type of hotel in the Watford area, but it serves the purpose of having a clean place to sleep, good internet connection, and nice breakfast, then hit the road in the morning. Conveniently located by the Watford Junction station.

We stayed here the night before our Harry Potter Tour. The room was excellent, clean, modern and well equipped. The en suite was bright and modern with lovely shower! The staff were friendly and helpful and did not seem to mind our two over excited boys enjoying their stay! Breakfast was good, and they were even able to make me... More

I stayed here for one night with my daughter after visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour. The hotel is very convenient for the station and the shuttle bus. Our room was on the 4th floor and very clean and quite a good size with a nice shower room. The room overlooked the railway but I had no problem with noise... More

Perfectly located just around the corner from Watford Junction Station. We arrived early so our allocated room wasn't cleaned but we were immediately found an alternative and were checked in. Room was clean and had everything you need for a short stay - loveley strong shower!!! The reception staff were excellent offering advice on where to (and not to) eat... More

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
