Very expensive hotel. Really close to Watford Junction railway station - less than 5 minutes walk. Hotel is not large so was quite cramped at breakfast. Parking is expensive - £5 over night. Facilities are all fine in the rooms which are spacious. Fine for 1 or 2 nights.

I booked two rooms there for two days on 04/11/2014 to 04/13/2014. The entire hotel during our stay did not have hot water. My wife had to travel 45 min. away to our daughter's college to take a hot shower. All they would tell us is anytime now there will be hot water. Unfortunately there never was during our stay....

The hotel is conveniently located next to Watford Junction station. Checked in on Friday evening, the welcome was warm and friendly. The hotel and room were clean, functional and very well designed. The bed provided a very comfortable nights sleep. Alas on on Saturday morning we awoke to no hot water, a situation that was not resolved before we checked... More

I stayed for a weekend with my daughter. We chose the Holiday Inn because of its easy links to Harry Potter and direct train to London. We were met on the Saturday night by Anu who was on reception she couldn't have been nicer, welcoming and polite. She happily googled for me the number of the nearest dominos pizza shop... More

I realise that this is an Express hotel, but I have stayed in other Holday Inn Express hotels and unfortunately this had to go down as one of my worst stays.

Like many people, we chose to stay in Watford because it's close to the Harry Potter Studios, but still on the line to London. In that regard the hotel was excellent, virtually around the corner from the station, where you can go to London or catch the shuttle to HP Studios. Beyond that I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly... More
