Holiday Inn Express Watford is a short stones throw from Watford Junction station. This gives direct access into central London via the London Overground or West Coast Mainline services. It also provides quick and easy access to Wembley Stadium, and I stayed there for a trip to Wembley, arriving Friday night and leaving Sunday morning. The hotel isn't particularly well... More

We had booked this hotel as we wanted somewhere close to Watford Junction station as we were going to Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. It was about 10 mins walk to the right as you walk out of the station. We were given a family room on the first floor as there was myself, my husband & my teenage... More

A difficult hotel to review, As a basic hotel it would have been fine, only a10 min drive from Harry Pand easy walk to the centre for a large choice of eating. A really excellent front of house team. Having read the reviews on TA I rang the day before to ask for a room away from the railway line,... More

This came as part of our package for the Harry Potter Studio Tour. The bus for the tour is just across the road although we decided to drive ourselves. The hotel has very clean and modern. The room was perfect and the staff very friendly and helpful. Ideal to walk round the corner to the train station and hop on... More

Breakfast was brilliant, even could get hot chocolate. Great selection. Very close to station and 9 minutes from Watford town centre so handy for a bit of shopping or something to eat. All staff are very friendly and able to help with a problem you have. At the reception they can recommend a takeaway and give you a number for... More

Great location if using rail not so clever via car with limited,difficult parking adjacent. Meeting rooms spot on as are bedrooms if not basic, but all relevant to the low cost. Will use again for meetings keeping out of London for convenience.

Located right by Watford Junction railway station. This hotel offered everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Friendly staff, spacious clean rooms with en-suite shower room and a good breakfast buffet. The free newspaper is a nice extra. Please note: Parking fee is £5 per night extra.

My partner and I stay at this hotel once every year as it is the first place we stayed when we arrived in England 4 years ago. It is nothing luxurious - but the staff are friendly, it's a short walk to watfords shopping and bar district and the train station is a stones throw away. The TV and Internet... More
