This was recommended by my sister and we were not disappointed. Well thought out rooms with everything we would want. Very clean, the bathroom was spotless. We had a problem with our bathroom door - the handle came loose. As we only had one more night to stay I was quite happy to wedge it but due to health and... More

The Paper Mill pub which is opposite the hotel is a good place to go for a drink and it also has good food, as does the Indian... More

Conveniently located close to railway station, etc. For the price, expected a lot more. It's a noisy place with constantly banging doors - fire doors that close quietly are a must in a modern hotel. There's also a constant background drone from the railway line. Room was comfortable enough with the facilities you would expect. Continental breakfast - well it... More

We stayed here for one night as a treat for me so I didn't have to drive over two hours home after visiting the Warner Bros studios. It exceeded our expectations by far. Easy drive from the studios and brilliant location next to the Grand Union Canal. The staff were super friendly and efficient, going to a lot of trouble... More

After staying across town in the Holiday Inn, I recently stayed in the Express with business. Hotel is clean and well organised as you'd expect from IHG. Rooms are typical for an Express hotel, as is the breakfast. NB: you need to register your car on the tablet at reception within 20 minutes of arriving to avoid a fine!
