This Holiday Inn is perfectly located right off the M1, while most rooms do not hear all of the noise of the Motorway. If you are a light sleeper, you're better off asking for a room overlooking the parking lot, in particular when you open the window. These windows do open only 2 inches by the way so will be... More

I stayed 4 nights for business. Staff was friendly and welcoming. I was on the 2nd floor, and the hallway was stuffy and had a weird smell. It also seems it takes a long time for room service trays to be picked up - I'm sure that didn't help the smell. Rooms are a little run down but adequate -... More

We chose this hotel as a base for sightseeing in London and it's location was ideal for that, a 10 minute drive to Hemel Hempstead train station and then a 20 minute train journey to Euston. The hotel staff were very friendly on arrival and, as requested, had provided a room which was in a quieter area. The room itself... More
