This hotel is not an easy place to access for a large vehicle ie : a coach. The address the coach had was in a no entry road resulting in a long detour trying to find the entrance. Whilts the rooms are clean and the beds comfy the breakfast was not a lot of choice in the cooked range being... More

Holiday Inn Express' are the same all over the UK, and the rooms are importantly comfy and clean. However, the price they charge is often more than a Premier Inn who offer a nicer looking room and a far superior breakfast. The breakfast here was terrible!

Lovely hotel and great staff. Requested a room at the front after reading that you don't hear the trains as much and staff sorted this before arrival. Once there the staff were friendly and helpful, it felt cold even with the heating on (it was 19 degrees but felt quite cold by the window) so we asked at reception for... More

Stayed here for one night, while we visited the Harry Potter studios tour. The hotel is a short walk from Watford Junction station, so short that we checked out at 11:00am and caught the 11:06 train. I heard one train sound its horn at about 11:30pm at night but other than that nothing. Our room was on the second floor... More

You know exactly what you get already when booking the room in this hotel. The room was clean but a little bit impersonal and not really homy. A good standard. We came there later in the evening and left after an "OK" breakfast for the rest of the day. And this is exactly what this hotel is good for.

I stayed here with my mother on a trip to Harry Potter Studios. Its an excellent location to the station and hopping on the frequent bus to the studios. We stayed on the top floor and the room was quiet even though its very close to the train station. The beds were comfortable and a good size. Breakfast was pretty... More

Shambled eggs (you got it right) sausages and baked beans. Grapefruit, small packages of jam and only some slices of cheese. Never ham or anything else, so if you want a... More

Lovely staff at the hotel, checked me in early on request which was incredibly helpful. Rooms are clean and simple, and furniture is very practical. Hotel is situated very close to Watford Junction and Watford business area.

I stayed here for one night for the England game at Wembley and it was pretty convenient for travel to the stadium on the Saturday. On the Sunday we returned for a stadium tour and there was a replacement bus service so check the timetables if looking for convenience. I stayed with my young son, so we had a room... More
