Stay here when visiting family 5-10 minute walk away. Nice location by the canal, pub serving food next door and local shop 5 min walk. Not to far from Apsley train station and can walk to nearby sainsburys, take away etc. Free parking great bonus plus good disabled parking right by the door. Free wifi works great all over the...

Nice hotel. Lovely rooms. Had to ask to get served at bar which was disappointing only wanted a soft drink too but my dinner was freezing & no waitress service apparent. Would have said restaurant & bar both very understaffed. Would still stay again as great value for money.

This is a really nice hotel and we chose it because we were visiting Harry Potter Studio tour. The car park is not that big as it is in a residential area and you need to watch not to park in their spaces, however it was perfectly adequate the night we stayed. The rooms are nice and clean, we needed... More

Firstly had to find member of staff to book my wife and I in , had to get some one out of the office -:( Busy hotel, excellent location across road from station . Only 30 minuets to Euston. Clean and fresh, bed comfortable and slept well. Breakfast as always the same, wish there could be more fresh fruit.

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night after a visit to Harry Potter studios. Lovely clean hotel, comfortable rooms, breakfast was plentiful & varied,loved the croissants! So nice to be next to Aspley Locks & The Paper Mill pub/restaurant is worth a visit.

For quick and easy budget stay in the area this is as good as any. The only things that stopped me giving this an "excellent" rating were a) the car parking which is a bit limited, and b) the location and vibe regarding the room allocated - there was nothing wrong with the room its just that those on floor...

Conveniently located next to a train station but not Hemel Hempstead! It's actually next to Apsley station. Air con very loud and inefficient. Usual breakfast with bulk cooked scrambled eggs and mediocre sausages. Nice location by canal and big sainsburys 10 mins walk. All in all not bad value and handy for Harry Potter studios.

Despite being busy this proved to be a quiet hotel offering clean, warm and up to date facilities. We had booked a double room, on arrival they had allocated a twin.
