Stayed at this hotel in June. Lovely clean rooms, friendly helpful staff, great location to get around for such like Harry Potter experience etc. Food was good. Not a la cart but didn't pay a la cart prices. Beds were comfy and didn't hear much noise like you can do in some place. I would recommend for business, couples and... More

Stayed here on business for 2 nights, hotel is clean and comfortable, the only downside is the very small parking spaces and not many of them for a 90 odd room hotel, it is right near the Watford junction train station and although you hear the occasional high speed train it is not too bad, Breakfast is adequate.

We opted for this hotel for its proximity to the Warner Brothers Studios tour. The rooms were nice enough, a tad cozy, but fine for what we needed. The breakfast offerings worked out well enough with a variety of items such as eggs, sausage, toast, yogurt, fruit, and cold cereals. It worked well as a stop off place prior to... More

We stayed for two nights and had by necessity a disabled room.. The room was very well equipped with a full wet room and comprehensively equipped with disabled aids. Very impressive. The bed was super comfortable and there was a bed / settee, which the hotel fully made up for us for our son. Everything was clean and tidy and... More

We stayed overnight during trip to London. Hotel was very comfortable, beds and pillows excellent, friendly staff, good value and reasonably priced car parking. 20 mins to Euston. The only slight niggle was the breakfast - would have liked fresh fruit but for the cost of the stay I can't complain. Will deffo recommend.

I don't expect much from a Holiday Inn Express when I'm staying for business but even so I was pretty unimpressed. When staying solo for business all you really want is facility to iron a shirt, reasonable room service, a decent breakfast and a comfy bed. I'll acknowledge that the beds are fine and the choice of firm or soft... More

Holiday Inn Express at Watford is a very nice, decent hotel as all other Holiday Inns. Located just next to the railway station. Decent clean rooms. Good service and good breakfast! If you book in advance you get a very decent rate! Very happy to stay there!
