Can't really fault this place, it's just what you'd expect from any holiday inn hotel, the room was clean and comfortable and the price for the room is reasonable!

I stayed here with my family for 2 nights, visiting relatives. Have stayed here several times in the past. I have had the odd below average room however on most occasions, I find this hotel to be very convenient, quiet & clean, with good quality decor and very good facilities. This hotel offers very reasonable rates from time to time too, which makes it overall, good value.
Whenever we stay, we always make use of the leisure/fitness facilities. We find them to be in very good condition and adds additional value, to any stay there. The food is good and varied as well. I believe they still offer 'kids eat free' which we took advantage of, for breakfasts as in our situation, is another good reason to stay.

At check in I was greeted by an abrupt young lady. Got to my room and it is the same as pretty much any other Holiday Inn. The bathroom is tired and a leaking shower. £16 for 24hours wifi is a rip off. The car park isn't secure and I was very aware of the signs about car thieves in the area. Not very reassuring. As the title says, there are far better hotels around for less these days. I don't know this area well and the usual hotels I like to use aren't in this area.

We have stayed here several times when visiting family who live nearby. The surrounding area is not too built up and the motorway is just far enough away not to be obtrusive. On our last stay the bathroom had not been properly cleaned before our arrival. The bathroom of this room is also in dire need of refurbishment. Otherwise the hotel is generally good, staff helpful and the breakfast tasty. We found the M & S Food shop just outside to very handy

having booked an inclusive trip to visit an Art Exhibition with a travel company we learned we were to stay at the Holiday Inn Hemel Hempstead. As two elderly ladies we had booked a twin room. On arrival we were allocated room 203, we were astonished to find a 4' double and half a sofa made up. We contacted reception who informed us that this filled their twin criteria!!! needless to say it definitely did not fill our criteria, they offered to come and make the sofa bed into a double. When I pointed out that we had booked and paid for a twin-bedded room, they said they would come back to me. After my speaking to a further two members of staff they finally agreed to move us to a twin bedded room. The rest of the hotels services were very average, carvery [nothing remotely hot] cold bacon and eggs etc etc. at breakfast, although the proper cold food was fine. After ordering a pot of coffee for two a teapot and two mugs arrived!
We have learned in future to check that a twin room means a twin bedded room and not some makeshift arrangement.

We stayed here on business for a week and must say the service in the hotel was excellent right from check in we were made to feel welcomed and Ivan on reception gave his time for us with the right attitude towards his work. meals were good although we were limited to the set menu (as the company was paying). rooms had all we needed and were clean but the internet is a bit pricey at £5 per hour of use. Wouldn't mind using the hotel again in future.
