“Best Ever”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Have stayed in numerous premier inns up and down the country and this was the best ever. Not only was it the usual excellent value for money but the customer service was out of this world and at one point I could have sworn I was on a cruise, it was that good.

The girl on reception could not have been better, more friendly or welcoming. The guy in the bar brought drinks to us, we didn't even have to move to order them. Servers at breakfast were friendly and polite. What a fantastic team. Premier Inn must be proud of the team they have put together. Will definitely stay here again

Visiting friends over xmas so decided to book in advance. £29 for Christmas eve. Very cheery staff, clean room, good size comfortable bed and no noise from the surrounding roads. If you want a simple clean and great value bed then plan in advance and you get exactly that. Well done Premier Inn.

Stayed here following an event in Watford. Great location for town centre - literally a few minutes by taxi or an easy walk. The parking was free and plentiful. Had a twin room, ground floor. Fairly quiet. No road noise. Beds comfy, tea & coffee facilities, hairdryer near the mirror, hanging space, tv and adequate bathroom. Staff cheerful and helpful. Didn't use restaurant. Be warned, if returning from Watford town centre after midnight there is a minimum £10 charge for a the 2 minute taxi ride... they may even refuse to take you. Ask Reception to book you cars rather than use the rip off taxi rank in the town centre.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit London and Harry Potter studios and what an excellent choice of hotel! We have stayed in Central London on previous visits and paid almost triple the amount. This hotel ticked all the boxes. Room was lovely and clean, beds were comfy, 2 good nights sleep and a fantastic breakfast. The receptionists couldn't do enough to help as well when we asked for walking directions to Watford Junction train station to get the bus to Harry Potter. They printed off a map for us and told us which way to go. This is a perfect hotel for a visit to Harry Potter!

Went to London for the weekend and stayed in Watford for the second time this year (the other time stayed at the Hilton hotel in Watford but the Premier Inn was better and half the price!!!!).

If you plan on driving to London but don't want to pay London prices then Watford is ideal as it's half the price of London hotels and only £12 for a days tube ticket which gets you round all the attractions etc for the day aswell. I'd advise going to the Watford station that is on the Metropolitan line as it's the least busy of the 3 stations in Watford and the cheapest ticket too. Car park is £2 all day Saturday and £1.50 Sunday. About a 5 min drive from the hotel to the station. Takes roughly 45-50 mins to get to the centre of London on the tube.

Onto the hotel, it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room had all the neccessities including hairdryer, flat screen TV etc etc.

Check-in & check-out no problem and a free car park too which is always a bonus!

Sleep quality was good and the bed was reasonably comfy. There was the odd bit of noise coming from people walking up and down the corridors but other than that it was ok as the area the hotel was in was quiet.

There is a Tesco across the road if you need anything which is handy.

Overall, had a good stay and will probably stay again at some point!!!

Whatever Premier Inn I seem to use you can rely on a warm efficient welcome, arrived late on business, room promply arranged and table reserved in restaurant. Good night's sleep and excellent breakfast - the perfect business stopover with wi-fi available. They even kindly rang me in advance to warn of road blockage due to waterworks problem. First rate

Stayed here for one night for a weekend of London shopping (SO much cheaper to stay in Watford and get the tube in than to pay Londons hotel prices). Nice hotel in a good location, right in the middle of Watford with plenty of shops nearby, Tesco right opposite if you've forgotten any essentials. Standard Premier Inn really - fairly large rooms, very clean. Check in was easy and the staff very friendly, didn't get the name of the guy who checked us in as his badge said he was 'in training' but he was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again if in the area :)
