My wife and I stayed here for one night at the end of January. We booked this hotel because it was near to the Harry Potter Warner Brothers Studio Tour. I've heard of Holiday Inn hotels - you see them everywhere. They're a chain. I knew as a hotel i would have a bed and some food to eat, but... More

The hotel itself is ok. The food represents good value for money and is less expensive than you might expect. The room (55) however was disappointing even with a business rate of £126 per night. Carpets are tired, woodwork looks like it was last painted 10 years ago. The TV didn't work at all. There were stains all over the... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night only, whilst on a showtime trip to London. I have to say that we were very impressed with the friendly staff, the cleanliness, the lovely breakfast and the comfortable warm room. The only other things I would like are a larger bed and some biscuits in the room.

This was a one night stay on business and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast was very good. The room was good but there was a noise from out side the room most of the night.... now it could have been the dual carriage way or the motorway, but as the room was... More

Came for a family function. We were very well looked after. Stayed overnight in an executive room overlooking the car park. Very comfortable and quiet. Bed and pillows were excellent. Dinner in the restaurant was good. Mixed grill was very good indeed. Fine breakfast, including a pancake maker. Overall impressed by the attentive and friendly staff. Couldn't be more helpful....

The Holiday Inn in Hemel Hempstead is a modern hotel with good facilities. The room was clean and tidy, the bed comfortable and the toiletries adequate Breakfast was very good, dinner okay and the staff were mainly friendly. The hotel is what you expect from one that focuses on business travellers so close to the M1.

Met with very efficient friendly staff. Room as expected. Clean with bright decor. Bedlinen fresh and bed inviting. Not luxurious, but not basic. Pool looked inviting and gym looked well maintained with a good array of equipment. Unfortunately, no time to try out the leisure facilities.Very comfortable stay. Would definitely stay here again.

Pleasant hotel near the M1. All the staff where very attentive. Clean rooms and a decent restaurant. A good gym and nice pool. Plenty of parking spaces The price of drinks were on the high side,especially the wine in the restaurant.

Great location just of the M1, perfect for a business stop over. The hotel is as you would expect with a holiday inn, nothing more nothing less. The bar does food till quite late and was ok, there is also a restaurant which seemed quite overpriced!
