Whatever you do do not book this hotel, absolute crack den! I wouldn't let my dog sleep in there! Am surprised this is still up and running it's a disgrace to humanity!! Stains all over the carpets, bedding had not been changed. The shower room looked as if you would be more dirty coming out of there than you would...

There's no denying that Elstree Inn is located in a great location, on the main high street. There's free parking around the back and access to local amenities in walking distance including a supermarket, shopping complex, restaurants and Elstree Studio's. The Inn is not luxury, quite expensive for what you get and has a 'grubby' feel to the place. We...

Coffee rings on window sill. Mould around window and nets. Complained on arrival at the cleanliness of room and unflushabe toilet. Was promised housekeeping would go...

My friend and I were staying near Elstree studios for the recording of a programme. The Elstree inn is nearby, that is where the positives end. We were expecting basic and if it was clean that would have been fine. However, the carpets were almost black with dirt, we had one filthy curtain hanging (just) on the window, not fully...

If these are words you like to hear when booking a hotel then by all means book the Elstree Inn. If you value your health, sleep and sanity, do not book here, under any circumstances. The whole place is FILTHY. Not just unhoovered, but actually disgustingly dirty, like the rooms haven't been cleaned for months on end - pictures attached....

For God's sake, do not stay here! The staff was impressively rude, the rooms absolutely filthy- unvacuumed floors covered in several different occupants' hair, cracked shower pan of the tiny shower in the gross bathroom, the last tenant's chewed gum left neatly balled on the nightstand. My wife and I wore our shoes any time we left the bed. If...

If you Value your life and health then avoid this very poorly run hotel like the plague. I have to address the number one concern here, we are on the first floor and the room windows are a fire hazard. You will not be able to escape a fire outside your room because the top fan windows are too small...

Probably one of the worst places Iv stayed calling itself a hotel. More like a noisy doss house. Uncaring staff and no comfort in this place what so ever. When looking for a room. My opinion says dodge this one every time. When I raised my concern. All I was told was there will be no refund. This accommodation is...

Where do I start, this place is the pits! After check in you are directed through a rabbit warren of dark dirty and smelly corridors to what can only be described as a crack den for a bedroom. Filthy carpets, holes in the walls, sockets hanging from the wall and the smell, I cannot even describe the smell it was...
