I had a great opportunity to spend 3 days ,2 nights in your hotel recently for attending a training course in your locality. It was a pleasant stay. The ambiance of your hotel is nice, staff very helpful , rooms are comfortable.
The location is ideal, proximity to railway station and luckily my training venue was also nearby. The Duty Manager 'Alex' and members of reception staff went out of the way to help me with the room allocation and in my visit of interesting places nearby.

Wishing a visit once again in the earliest opportunity.
Thanks

We booked in order to visit the HP studios. We paid £51 for the spotlessly clean room and that included a serve yourself breakfast. Excellent value. Our rooms were at the back of the hotel but we heard no trains and I'm a light sleeper. Reception staff quiet but helpful and being able to leave luggage was great. Hotel is closest to station and was super value. We all agreed we would add this review even though we have never left one before because we were so impressed. Kids bed on floor was fine, comfy even. No complaints here; give it a go.

Just returned following a one night stay.
Had problems trying to find the car park, which is very small and if you arrive late, i would suggest you would have trouble getting a space.
Receptionists polite and when asked if a taxi could be booked for later, actioned request straight away.
Room was basic, but clean and no problems at all with either the bed or pillows.
Stayed in room 301 which was very quiet and no noise from either the road or the station.
Did not have time for breakfast in the morning, so can't comment on that.
It's ok for a one night stay, but I wouldn't want to stay any longer.

Stayed for 2 nights. Clear and well maintained room. Quiet area with a small amount of train noise (we were on the main entrance side of the building). Breakfast was ample to start you off for the day. Would use the hotel again and recommend to others.

2 minutes from the station and the Harry Potter shuttle bus stops outside the station.

Town centre is 10 minuteqs walk away. The hotel has a small meal menu but there is a excellent Chinese restaurant in the next street.

I booked and paid for this hotel online so I was very pleased with the easy check in and check out. I was offered a tab to open if I wanted but only with a credit card. The very friendly male receptionist tried to explain to me why I couldn't use a debit card instead of a credit card but it was all very complicated so I just opted to pay cash for our food and drinks instead. Room was comfortable and furnished as you would expect from Holiday Inn Express, Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about , fruit juice was disgusting but there was plenty of choice...again I wasn't expecting anything more from a Holiday Inn Express.
We were pleased to see there was a small evening meal menu as we were a bit wary of venturing out at night in an area we didn't know. The food off the menu was fine - my daughter had the pasta and I had the curry. The hotel was ideally situated for the Warner Bros Studios- 2 mins walk from the shuttlebus which leaves every 30 mins. The outstanding feature of the hotel was the one man who was working as receptionist, barman, waiter and always had a smile for us.

Booked this hotel to be near Harry Potter studios. Good hotel in good location directly beside Watford Junction train station, about a 2min walk. if you dont want to drive to Harry Potter studios, then a "Harry Potter" bus leaves from the train station every 30mins - only £2 return per person.Room a little cramped as it was a family room, but served the purpose for one night. Breakfast very good. All public areas / rooms very clean. Be warned, the trains start running around 7 am! Good value for money.

Room Tip: At end of corridor away from lifts

We have just stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Harry potter studios and sightseeing in London . This hotel is in great location just 2 minutes from the train station and a 10/ 15 minute walk to watford high street where we found a few places to eat after being at Harry potter all afternoon , We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff who maintained a professional manner for our entire stay , our room was clean and well kept and we heard very little noise from the train line our only criticism were the beds ( a very personal opinion ) we just found them very uncomfortable with poor quality quilts and pillows my husband even considered doing the 4 hour journey home at 11 o clock at night !!!
