Lovely hotel, good location. Really impressed with the head chef and all the waiting staff who completely understood when I said I was a coeliac and went out of their way to ensure I had a lovely but safe meal at both dinner and breakfast. Thanks again.

Hotel was everything we needed for an overnight stay with my grandaughter. It was clean, comfy beds, good food and lovely staff who went over and above to make your stay the best. Used the pool twice, good size with a hot tub. Would definitely recommend.

I was really impressed with the overall standard of this hotel. We had been to the Theatre in The west end and stayed here on the way home. We ate dinner in the restaurant, which was simple pub grub, but enjoyable and reasonably priced.

I stayed here from xmas eve for 3 nights. Check in/out was very quick and all the reception staff were very friendly. My children were even given a xmas present from one of the ladies at reception which I thought was so sweet. Pity I forgot to note her name. The room was clean

We arrived for an overnight stay and New Year event. Check in was efficient and friendly. Our room, (no 42) was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Included in our package was use of pool and gym, evening dinner, disco, wine and beer followed by breakfast on New Years day.

Does the hotel cater for dairy intolerance?
Not sure, sorry. I should give a ring to find out for certain.

As I work in the industry myself I don't see this as being a problem. They may take the other children's ages into consideration though. As always it's better to ask them. I'm sorry if this wasn't helpful.

Watford junction is quite a distance, about 10/15 miles I would say. There Is a mainline station in Hemel Hempstead but a taxi ride away, too far to walk. It's next to a BP petrol station with a small m&s food shop. There are restaurants and a Tesco supermarket near but not really walking distance as there are no pavements. It's ok if you're driving down the M1 as it is just off junction 8 and you do need a car to get to shops and restaurants. Personally I'd look for a hotel in Watford town centre.

"We loved our room. I am sure all rooms are well equipped and clean. Nothing to worry about it. We will come back. Thank you."
"They all look the same in need of a good update."
"All rooms are fine."
"Extremely comfortable rooms"
