Stayed here for one night recently and was blown away. Wasn't expecting a great deal in all honestly, but the staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. They actually seemed like they cared and not just fulfilling a role. The room was great. Large enough for the family and really clean. The kids especially loved their beds! The leisure... More

Stayed here with my partner for one night, after visiting Watford. Room was very clean, and more than I was expecting. Freeview tv, shower and bath, settee in room, fridge and trouser press. More than I bargained for, considering the price! Had free unlimited access to the gym and pool, including jacuzzi and steam room, and were given fresh towels... More

Stayed here 6 of us on the 30th for an early start at Warner Bros Studio Tour. Check in very fast and efficient, car park was packed but the hotel itself didn't seem too busy. Was worried that the bar would be packed with all the cars, this fear was unfounded, very pleasant barman kept us well lubricated. Dinner, opted... More

What could go wrong? Great location, modern rooms, very comfortable bed. Despite all of this I've pretty much been awake since 3am. I'm my room was a choice of the central heating system or air conditioning system to hear my room. Well, it's sort of a choice. The central hearing was incredibly noisy. Sounded like a jet engine on full... More

Stayed here whilst onb an organised trip and very satisfied with the hotel and accomodation. Large clean rooms were comfortable and staff helpful and friendly. Food was a carvery with enough choice to satisfy most and we even got 15% off our bar bill due to some offer. Overall a handy place to stay, just off the M1. Recommended
