We (mom and I) got a clean and neat room that is more than enough for a one night stay. For us, the BEST THING about this hotel is it's location. Seriously, just a 3-4 mins walk from watford junction train station. The Harry potter bus picks us up at the bus stop right outside the train station, so it... More

Stayed here with family so booked 3 rooms (6 people in total). All rooms were next to each other and check in was straight forward with friendly staff. The rooms were spotless with tea & coffee making facilities. We did not hear the trains at all. The beds were comfortable and clean. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from... More

This is obviously an hotel for business folk travelling for a couple of nights, unfortunately I'm here for 2 weeks ! The bed (single) is flimsy and slides across the floor when I sit against the wall (headboard) to read. There is no wardrobe and nowhere with any drawers - the hanging area is small and crushes my clothes against... More

We found this hotel clean with good rooms .... But the food at the so called restaurant was awful .. Tasted like nothing and presentation was non existent and breakfast was average as well ... Shame because it was a nice place ... Also a bit hard to get too

We stayed in the hotel on the night of 4th October 2014 The hotel receptionist were not only professional, but they were extremely helpful. The room was nice - it has a double sofa bed for the girls and a nice double bed for us. I quite liked the bathroom, which was small - but the space had been used... More

We stayed in Watford for one reason, our kids wanted to go to Harry Potter world. This hotel has no rooms bigger than a double bed with a sofa bed. The bedding was substandard, the mattresses were non supportive, the internet was unreliable, they don't serve dinner on a Sunday night, the breakfast was basic .... The staff showed no... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Warner Bros studios which were amazing. The location of this hotel is perfect, right by the train station, which can be noisy early hours in the morning so take ear plugs. Apart from that was fine. We had a double bed and a sofa bed out when we got to the room... More

Stayed here when visiting the Warner Bros Studio tour (amazing). The location couldn't be better, 2 minutes from Watford junction station, not too far from everywhere else. Stayed as a family, 3 adults and a child, the room was very small. A double bed and a sofa bed crammed into a room with very little other space. The whole room... More

We stayed here for 4 nights to use the hotel as a Base for going off exploring London. It's only 5 minutes away from Watford Junction station and less than 20 minutes into Euston on the train. The downside is that you can hear the trains in your room but they didn't keep us awake and you always close the... More

My husband and i stayed at this hotel as we were travelling by train and going to visit The Harry Potter attraction. ThIs hotel was well located for both, just a stones throw away from the station from which you could also board a bus to Warner Brothers for the Harry Potter Experience. The hotel was great value for money... More
