Booked through Booking.com. Arrived on 24th December thinking it would be basic but at a minimum clean. Wish I had looked more closely at the reviews but I was in a rush and the pictures looked good enough! How wrong I was. I took one look at the toothpaste-stained solitary glass in the bathroom, suspicious stains on the bedding (bed...

Stayed here with my sister while visiting the studios to watch Strictly which was a 10 minute walk away. The hotel has dark and pokey corridors when we arrived we had no lights in our room (apparently the electrician had turned them off while working on another room) when they did come on I really wished they hadn't. The twin...

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...

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....
