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 have just returned from a two night stay, choosing to stay here when we travelled to visit harry potter studios. Location wise it was perfect for this - being only two minutes from the m1 and a 10 minute drive from the Harry Potter studios. Every member of staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble... 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

Stayed here on an organised coach trip after a day at Wimbledon. Excellent room, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff were efficient and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding with everything you could have wished for. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

The service has got much more friendly recently. Rooms vary depending on when they were last refurbished. Restaurant lacks atmosphere. Reception staff are friendly but bar staff are disinterested. Gym quite good but a bit cramped.
