Stayed here after boating the harry potter tour. Rooms and clean and comfortable. Didn't eat or drink in hotel as looked dated and location is perfect to go elsewhere. Located by the high street so was able to walk to the various shops bars and restaurants near by. Would recommend for a cheap stop over.

Well placed for the centre of town etc. When I arrived at 7:30 my room was not ready, the staff response was efficient after I informed them. In my call I said "the bed is not here" meaning I had no sheets, pillows etc. However the receptionist's reply "has somebody stolen the bed?" made me wonder what sort of guests... More

This hotel was booked by me through my works travel agency for a last minute business trip. Sadly I did not check the reviews beforehand otherwise I would not have booked this hotel. The only upside is the staff are friendly and welcoming, and the food was pretty good but I digress onto the negatives. When I first walked into... More

Alternative hotel offered due to lack of availability of accommodation in the area at the time of the visit. Dated rooms - anaglypta (excuse the spelling) paper on the walls and ceiling for goodness sake. Needs to be knocked down and the plot sold for an apartment block. Why? ;- Spring loaded doors "BANG" shut enough to keep you awake... More

At first glance at the hotel and location I assumed this was a brothel! It turns out it was a hotel and it's just ok. If the other hotels in the area are fully booked (and there are a lot in Watford) I would consider staying here. The decor is so dated but the manager told me it's due for... More

We booked this hotel for a family of 3, we chose this hotel as we were planning a visit to the Harry Potter studios. This hotel was only a 10 minute walk to Watford junction station where we could get a bus to the studio tour. We arrived at the hotel at 11am, check in was from 2pm onwards, staff... More

We decided to travel to Watford from Scotland very spontaneously. We decided to book The White House as I knew it was very central. Stupidly I read reviews after booking, but I hoped that they were exaggerated reviews. The front of the hotel actually looks quite nice. But when we saw the room, it was verrrry dated, very basic, and... More

Stayed in this hotel numerous times over the last 2 years. The location is excellent for the town centre and if you arrive early enough we have always got into their car park. However each stay there has been problems - noise levels during night, shower not working, tv remote broken to mention a few which left you feeling frustrated.... More

I'll admit at first i was dubious about staying here but i had no choice as my company was paying. I'm here for the week and have no problems reviewing this hotel halfway through my stay. I have been pleasantly surprised by the staff, cleanliness and food whilst being here. Ok so the decor is a little dated but i... More
