We didn't expect much from the Holiday Inn and I booked purely because it was so expensive to stay anywhere in Watford and this was the cheapest! But it was better than we expected. Upon check in we were greeted with a friendly smile from Adriana the receptionist, unfortunately our room wasn't ready until about 2:30 but we didn't mind... More

I ended up staying here in March for a week when my sister died unexpectedly. I had flown from Canada hoping to see her come out of hospital and go home, but instead she died within four hours of my arrival. My visit then became one of funeral arrangement and emptying of her apartment. I checked into this hotel for... More

Picked this hotel mainly for location - Harry Potter Studios and ease of getting into central London. It is only a short walk to the Watford Gap train station (no more then 5 mins). There is parking spread out over two cars parks, both at the rear of the hotel. You pay the same rate for use of either car... More

This hotel is right next to the train station so very great location if you using the train or the shuttle to Warner Brothers Studio for Harry Potter. Staff was very friendly and professional. The room was very clean and very comfortable bed. The price was great and close to restaurants. Free breakfast in the morning as well as free... More

The room and breakfast were exactly what you come to expect with Holiday Inn. If you have ever stopped in one before, they are all very much the same. The stand out feature of this particular Holiday Inn was the location. Being right next to Watford Junction train station was very useful for getting into Central London and we used... More

I frequently use the HIE in Apsley which this time was full. I booked here as I find the HIE overall good value. While this was not a bad stay it fell short of the standard I am used to in Apsley. The hotel was difficult to find on my late arrival, there are no signs from the main roads... More

We stayed yesterday night as we visited the Harry Potter studio. The room were very nice. In generally the family room are quite small. Not these one, they are very big and comfy. The breakfast is a totally other story... No bacon (in England, no bacon in a buffet of cooked breakfast????) the scrambled egg were plastic, like the cheese,... More

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a concert at Wembley. Location was great, right next to Watford Junction so easy enough to walk to and hop on the overground into London. The staff were really welcoming. We arrived just after 2.30pm and pleased we did as we had the last parking space although there is a... More

Stayed overnight in July 2015. Room was clean although bed a little on the small size (standard double not queen/king size). Heating/cooling easy to control. Breakfast was limited but absolutely fine. Very quiet with no noise from adjoining rooms. Good, powerful shower. Small screen TV.
