4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We are usually a Premier Inn kind of family but decided to pay just a little extra for a Holiday Inn when we had an early start for Harry Potter. Main draws were the option of the pool, room service and onsite breakfast. However what has been great is the difference in service over the cheaper hotels. When we ordered... More

Stayed for one night with friend. Hotel is very close to the Apsley train station which is good for train trips. Arrived late and was greeted by a very nice gentleman at the Front Desk. Room was fairly spacious (this is England) and the twin beds comfy. Bathroom clean, good shower and well lit. Heating didn't deliver but Housekeeping supplied... More

Just stayed for the weekend while visiting Harry Potter Studios. All of the staff were really helpful and friendly, they went out of their way to ensure we had what we needed. The food was a pleasant suprise and all delicious. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

We stayed as a large family for one night when attending a family party. The rooms were very comfortable and the shower great. We ate in the bar and the food was very nice. We also enjoyed the health club where we swam and had a sauna and jacuzzi... Lovely! Staff were very helpful and polite. Really enjoyed our stay... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends birthday as we were using the snowboarding facilities nearby. The main reason I chose this hotel was because of the pool but it exceeded my expectations in every aspect!

Stopped here over the weekend with my boyfriend for my 21st birthday and to go to Harry Potter Studios. The hotel staff are lovely, especially the Manager who was so welcoming. It's a bit far out from other restaurants so I would recommend coming in your car as we had to keep paying for taxis. The food is amazing and... More

Used to stay here a lot but it was going down hill both in food and service, I am pleased to say that both have improved vastly. The hotel itself is very well positioned for commuters. Whilst it does need some decor refurbishment it is clean! The food has hugely improved both in choice and taste. Also so glad that... More
