We visited both places either side of an overnight stay at this hotel. It's very close and convenient for both. Good clean rooms and convenient town centre location. Close to train line with a little early morning train noise, but not too bad to complain. Car parking is very limited but available for first come first served for £5 per... More

Looking for an alternative to the Jury's inn. Booked this hotel £99 online. Was very clean and comfortable, only complaint the quality of the cooked breakfast ingredients was budget. Other than that I recommend it, and if I can get it cheaper I'll be back.

For the amount you pay I would expect a lot more. The staff weren't overly friendly, room was okay... a bit noisy but that's expected as it's so close to the train station (which was handy). The major let down was breakfast, everything was gone by 10.15 and the staff had no interest in stocking anything up and just seemed... More

Stayed here during June with my girlfriend as we where visiting the Harry Potter tour during the day, then wanted to visit London the next. The hotel is well located a short walk from Watford Junction station, and is convenient for the Harry Potter tour as the buses also depart from Watford Junction. Though I had hoped for a room...

The first time I landed in London, I booked into this hotel. Its a budget hotel and located in a quiet area. You get a good night's sleep, comfortable beds, clean toilets and good service.

First thing to say is that you know what to expect from a budget short-stay hotel so you shouldn't complain when it is less than luxurious. The Holiday Inn Express London-Watford Junction is a functional, no frills venue that provides reasonable value for the budget traveller, although you do have to smile at the 'London' address. That said, the hotel... More

We chose this hotel due to its location. It is a couple of minutes walk from Watford Junction train station and therefore makes it ideal for getting into central London (trains cost around £6 and can take between 15 to 40 mins or so). It is of course even better placed for those going to the Harry Potter Studio tours... More

If you are planning to go to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, the best place to stay is here. This hotel is good if you have small children with you. Most rooms have sofa beds which can fit 2.
