Stayed over 4 nights. All the staff were really nice and friendly. All the requests I asked before coming it have been done. Really close to town (10 min by walking) and to watford high street (tube)...so in 40 min you can get London....magic!

We went to the pool, which was busy, to find that there was only... More

Stay well away from this place. Even after making complaints the Hotel have accused us of lying. Find somewhere else or book here at your peril
