Booked two rooms here for a family trip to Harry Potter as very conveniently placed. Our double room was fine, clean, bit noisy but no more than expected on busy road and with lots going on in hotel with various parties booked in. It was quite difficult to find twin room which was a good few minutes walk from our... More

very noisy at night through doors slamming etc, on arrival miserable front desk would not check if room available even though it was 1pm because "check in wasn't until 2" then had to wait as check in was very busy. Booking.com is very guilty of misrepresenting location as this hotel is NOT Watford but a £12 to £17 taxi ride... More

Stayed here for just one night in late August. No more thank God and never again. Really dreadful hotel - such a depressing environment. Decor is dated, in poor condition and on occasions just bizarre. It feels more like a mental asylum from the 1970s than a hotel. The place is in dire need of modernisation and is definitely not...

Not a bad place to stay, basic rooms but comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Very good bar and restaurant with a decent menu of good everyday grub. Handy for getting around to sightseeing areas and local attractions.

Stayed here yesterday with mother and 11 year old daughter as visiting harry potter studios. Really easy to find. Hotel is basic but made up for it with lovely, helpful staff (especially Raj) and great food. Drinks bit overpriced but you expect that in hotel. Daughter loved the pool but would have been nice to see a female attendant in... More

My family and I stopped for 2 nights so that we had a convenient base to visit the Warner Bros studio at Watford. The welcome was friendly and we were told we were in 2 twin rooms near each other and they were next but only ever to each other, however when we booked we did request adjoining rooms so... More

We booked here due to needing to be near to London for day trips but without the London price tag. In hindsight it would probably have been better to book more centrally as the taxi/train/tube journey into London was both costly and time consuming. The hotel from the outside looks tired and grim but the inside is nicer. We didn't... More

A typical middle of the road franchise/chain hotel. Nothing out of the ordinary. Rooms average size and modest decor - certainly not shabby. Staff all pleasant and helpful enough. Decent breakfast. We stayed because large group going to Harry Potter and the cost difference over mulitple rooms made it more cost effective than staying in city centre London. We did... More
