For what you pay, this is a very good hotel. Clean and comfortable rooms with a large bathroom. Public spaces very clean and modern. Plenty of parking and in an excellent location across the road from Apsley station which takes you into London in 30 minutes. Breakfast OK and not on a par with a Premier Inn but overall an... More

Excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff. Location was great, easy access from the M1, and ideally situated for the train station with trains running every 30mins into London Euston. Lovely area around the marina with a pub and a couple of restaurants. The breakfast was fine, included in the price of the room. Very good value.

Excellent location, on A4251 on the very fringes of Hemel Hempstead, a couple of miles from the M25 and opposite a railway station with a regular service into London Euston. Good sized car park across which is a pub/restaurant called The Paper Mill (Fullers). The adjacent bridge over the canal leads of a basin filled with canal boats and further... More

I am a massive fan of Holiday Inns and so far have not found a fault with any i have stayed in.

Thank you so much for your comments. I have passed these details to the holiday inn as the express do not have leisure facilities, so unless it was a swim in the canal and a sauna in the kitchen, we can not take the credit, but again I am so glad that the holiday Inn brand family made your weekend....
