Let's start with why it gets 1 star. The meet and greet from the receptionist was lovely and it has free wi fi. But that's it... A sweat smell; no a/c so it's hot; outdated decor and fittings; a sodden carpet outside the bathroom so there's a leak; a toilet seat with a bidet at its side preventing you from... More

The reception is currently being worked on unfortunately it's the tiredness of the rooms and ensuites that need a refurb the staff are it's best assets ! for a best western you'd expect better, rooms too hot, wifi elusive Saturday nights noisy, average breakfast and nearly lost the car down two of the biggest potholes in watford which lurk in...

Without question the biggest dump I have ever had the displeasure of staying in ( and that includes some pretty ropey b&b's in run down seaside towns in my younger years ). Whilst the 1 star bedrooms are relatively clean - which was surprise based on my experiences before opening the door - the rest of the hotel is horrendous.... More

This is a 1970 time capsule, very old hotel in a very poor location situated on a busy noisy junction. Car parking is very limited and tight, rooms are boiling hot with no air on and internet is pot luck. Nothing good about this everything is just bad. Plenty of modern hotels in area use one of them is my... More

I am writing this review from my room in the hotel, which feels like an Egyptian desert in terms of heat and suffocating humidity. This is the hottest thing I have ever had to endure. There is also no air-conditioning to relieve the burn, although, there is a fan.... which feels like it is slowly blowing lava air at me.... More

Every effort had been made to ensure that the room was presented at it's best. The staff were friendly, polite and considerate. The bed was comfortable. As suggested in the 'user manual' in the room, the staff were prepared to bring fresh milk up to my room every time I requested it, also replenishing the coffee sachets when needed. I... More

The hotel is quite close to the shops in Watford and it would be easy to go to the Harry Potter experience at Warner Bros. As I didn't eat there, I can't comment on food. The room was a good size but the dividing walls seemed rather thin as televisions could be heard on both sides.

Its a cosy small hotel, narrow walkways with pleasant staff looking to help you. Its located along a fairly busy road during the day, 5-8mins walk from the Watford town centre and 20 mins to Watford junction. It has limited car parking. The room was neat clean and fairly small no safe or minibar so fairly basic. I didn't get... More

I found this place without problem although parking was more of an issue. The hotel says free parking, however there is only extremely limited onsite parking. I ended up having to park in a nearby multi-storey car park that cost £10.00 for the night. I have some mobility difficulties and although it is only a short walk, it wasn't a... More
