After being on the road for 7 hours yesterday my parents were turned away from the Days Inn Watford Gap despite having made a reservation. They were told there was no record of the reservation in their system, however I was able to confirm their booking easily by calling the Days Inn customer care helpline on 0800 0280 400 and... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. A few of the issues we found: - noise, we were non motorway side and had the pleasure of the air conditioning all night plus deliveries of goods and removal of waste. - bathroom - painting over damp and mould doesn't get rid of the problem! - no room on bedside tables...

Very friendly and helpful staff, gave lots of advice on local areas to eat and directions avoiding going up and down moterway!. Lovely clean very large room. My self and young daughter and very comfortable and safe. Bargain at £25.00. Would have happily paid more.

Carpets and furniture were stained. 1 pillow was stained and another had hairs on. Bed was comfortable but you cannot put anything on bedside tables as they have bedside lamp with large base fixed to them.

The rooms are large and great, service was fine, however noise level is an issue. I had a room on the non-motorway side to be free from that noise however I had the noise from the road chef air-conditioning/ or other engines wining all night. Parking was fine and its great that it was near facilities but you could struggle... More

Very helpful staff, clean spacious room, free wi fi, extra pillows in the room, cheap price. What's not to like? Main improvement would be signage telling you it is OK to go the opposite way down a 'no entry' access road to get there from the north bound M1.Fortunately I had emailed the hotel for details and got brilliant directions...

Overall, the room decor and cleanliness was good enough and it was cheap. Hotel is on South side services but if you arrive northbound, you can go across the bridge to the south band service where the hotel is. It is signposted but not too well-signposted. Room was very stuffy and warm and had a damp smell to it. Was... More
