"A hidden suprise"
Very comfortable in a quiet secluded location. Breakfast is extra but there is free tea and coffee and a popcorn machine in the bar. Amazing and the room was very comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Staff make this Hotel"
The Staff really do make this hotel, absolutely excellent each of them and clearly well looked after. The Hotel itself is a very pretty sight and the room was perfectly laid out, a few signs of wear and tear and a disappointment on bits of mold beginning to show on the window frames - something a little elbow grease could get of quite easily! Everything […] else was totally perfect, a very pleasant stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"would stay again"
would stay again but would hopfully try the swimming pool next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good basic hotel - not the standard of many other DeVere's but perfectly acceptable for my one night business stay. Care: hotel room choice on this site said double bed or alternatively twin beds and free wifi. On arrival they confirmed that all rooms have wifi and I could not swap to a double bed as they were fully booked. I would much rather have […] a double bed but I needed the wifi so booked the twin which I need not have done Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but not what we had hoped"
The rooms were comfortable and clean but we were woken several times in the night by the other hotel room doors that bang very loudly as guests went in and out. The pool was not very warm and there were no towels available for us to use there despite this being advertised. The unisex changing room was a bit dingy and there were no lockers for our things. The […] staff were lovely and helpful, just a shame about the other things. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location for the WB film Studios"
Nice hotel great location for the film studios, rooms could do with a make over but all in I can recommend my stay and a great priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was generally satisfactory but there were a few issues that could usefully be addressed. The bath water was nice and hot but the taps in my room had no markings to indicate 'Bath' or' Shower'; 'Hot' or 'Cold'. A freezing jet of cold water on the back of the neck from the shower was not particularly welcome when I was trying to fill the bath! […] The bath was also the shortest I've been in for some time. The beds were reasonably comfortable but the duvets seemed very short (I'm 6ft). The staff were acceptable but didn't make me feel that they were treating me as an individual (we arrived late at night though). All-you-can-eat breakfast was good for the price. Overall, acceptable overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A heavy metal cot stand fell on my head. I think it was propping open the meeting room door! I hurt my leg and could not walk properly for a few days or drive a car. A cucumber and tuna sandwich was made with stale bread.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good hotel for harry potter tour"
Friendly and efficient reception, lovely room, small but comfortable, soft towels and everything cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
First thoughts on arrival were pleasing, beautiful hotel! Well manered service on a simple check in. Comfort of the beds and the cleanliness of the room took the attention away from it not being overly spacious, nothing to complain about though! Shame we couldn't have spent more time there to make the most of the nice looking pool area. Despite their […] being a party further down, the bar was pleasantly quiet even if the price of drinks did mean I only had one, rather pricey. Good service and an enjoyable breakfast in the morning. Lovely hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for Warner Bros Studios!"
A great value hotel with clean facilities and excellent location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good quality hotel at a reasonable price"
The staff were friendly and very helpful. Everything was as one would expect from this grade of hotel. Only two slight issues - the car parking space is a bit limited and our room was a bit cold when we first went in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"serves a purpose"
Great location to get to St Albans. Our room had double bed squeezed into it and was very hot. Reception blamed bath towel rail which was on timer for all rooms and we could not control. Slept with window open all night. In my my opinion the hotel needed renovation as most dwcor beginning to look datwd and tired.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The pictures make out your staying in a country house, well your not. The rooms are just big enough for a double bed. Only one bedside cabinet, the bath needed replacing as it looked broken and the glass never sealed so when you showered the floor became wet. The radiator never worked so the room was cold all night. The restaurant was under staffed […] and we waited 20 mins for order to be taken then another 45 mins for starter to turn up, the wine turned up watered down with soda water. Would not stay here again, very disappointing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this at short notice. The room was comfortable and very clean, just what I wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel though can understand how others would be disappointed with not getting a room in the old house pictured on the website. Having been to this hotel before for meetings/conferences I knew what to expect and got exactly that. Hotel pool is slightly disappointing if you're expecting to swim length after length and lack of sauna or jacuzzi is […] disappointing. The hotel would benefit from these and fitness facilties. That said the hotel is absolutely fine for an overnight stay with good breakfast the following morning in pleasant surroundings. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location close to M25. Reception was accessed down two flights of steps.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay for a night"
This hotel is rather different from the photos with a large modern extension on the side of a period building. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was modern, clean and well appointed with kettle, iron and good TV. The setting is quiet and the hotel has large grounds that seperate it from the road, provide ample parking and somewhere […] to take breath of fresh air. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only in emergencies!"
Rooms much to small, not clean... You will stay in a building next to the beautiful house the you see mostly on the picturesGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved the grounds and the setting, but the room was a little cramped and very hot (because the sun came around on that side of the building). We asked for a layout of the property. Not available. We felt that the hotel was intended for wedding guests and business guests, not for holiday makers like us. One of us had a mobility problem so the steep […] steps down to reception were rather challenging. Nice quality, excellent staff, food not particularly interesting for us. Would we re-visit ? Probably not. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it was the best stay we have had in a uk hotel, the free tea/coffee area we found a really good idea, I think the only down side was that there wasnt enough shower soap and shampoo in the room especailly if you are making full use of the facilities at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very stylish hotel"
I stayed here with my husband, for one night. Beautiful grounds and lovely hotel. Our room was perfect. Bed was very comfy. A fan was also supplied. Booking a weekend break for us both now. I slept so well but my other half complained of doors slamming through the night. I did here this in the morning. But it didn't spoil my stay. Next time I will be […] sampling all the things I didn't have a chance to this time round. Thank you for a lovely nights sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked this hotel for a trip to "The Making of Harry Potter". It was perfectly situated being just a few minutes drive away. Our room was comfortable with good garden view. We ate in the hotel restaurant on Saturday evening - the meal was great and excellent service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for Harry Potter World"
Very clean an modern hotel. The bathroom was very big and well fitted. The bar and restaurant were well priced for a hotel situated within the M25. Double bed was in fact two singles bolted together although this wasn't much of a problem. I was impressed with the items we found in the room- the fan stored in the cupboard was a godsend. Excellent location […] for Harry Potter World (which we were visiting the next day)- about ten minutes' drive, if that. Grounds were well kept and lovely to explore after dinner.

when we arrived everything was fine. after coming back in the evening about 7pm, the room was so hot, no air, the window opened a little bit at bottom, found a fan, we knew you catered for parties ect but didnt expect the door rooms to be banging through the night it was dredful. and the shouting from the guests was not good, so we didnt have a good […] and had a long journey home!!!!!

Room given to us was on the ground floor and therefore couldn't open the window as it was extremely hot even at midnight. The fan supplied was a miniature fan which didn't help. We asked for another room but was told hotel was full. The male receptionist (middle aged man to early 50's was rude when we checked in.) Parking was enough and place seems […] peaceful. Beautiful garden. Check out was too early at 9 am. Could have been at least 11 am to give us time to eat and shower and maybe even have time to use the gym and the pool.

"Excellent value for the nearby attraction"
It was a pity that they were painting the lobby area, It was very hot and the paint smelled. The Pool was great, the food was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant for the lone traveller."
Steep flight of steps down to reception and no help offered to this elderly lady on her own. However, help was given on leaving the hotel. Something wrong with hot water in wash basin (shower OK), and no light over dressing table mirror. Both faults reported, in writing, to reception desk but nothing done about it. The room was somewhat dark and dreary, […] and it was impoosible to read in bed. Temperature in swmming pool uncomfortably high and I didn't care for the communal changing area. Staff were unfailingly courteous and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for Harry Potter Studios"
We were visiting the Harry Potter Studios and for this the hotel was in an excellent location. However whilst the rooms were clean they were very small. Overall the hotel was pleasant and the staff helpful although when we asked about what was in the locate area in terms of restaurants etc they we not able to help.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Still a good hotel"
We have stayed here before and really love the hotel, only this stay was a bit disappointing in were were put in a room adjacent to the dumpster and where deliveries for the kitchen are received. Hence we were woken at 5.45am both mornings, not really ideal. However, when we mentioned this on check out the desk clerk did comp us the bottle of wine we […] had had on our first night.

We had a very nice day over Easter. I had read that noise can be an issue with the door closing mechanisms but this was not as bad as some reviews make out. Lovely gardens as friendly staff made for a nice stayGenuine Expedia guest review
There was condensation on the window causing damp patches around the window. Fire door banged.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not what the pictures suggest"
Hotel was adequate, not the best and not the worst, one point is not to be deceived by the amazing photos of the house, the only chance you have to see this is as you turn left into the car park (the hotel is a separate building with no access to it)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal for Harry Potter studio"
There isn't a closer hotel for the Harry Potter Studio tour; it’s about 5 minute drive twenty min walk. The prices of the hotel food are not to bad but because of the drink prices we decided not to eat there. The price of wine/alcohol was ridiculous! So our nice dinner and drinks at the hotel idea was thrown out the window. We drove around and googled […] restaurants near Watford about ten min away from the hotel we found a Harvester which we ate at and was amazing. There was also a Frankie and Benny’s, TGI Fridays and more! Shame we couldn’t drink though as we had to drive. Hotel was ok as it was dirt-cheap but we wouldn’t of paid any more than we did for it. But if you want somewhere you can chill in the evening with drinks and a nice meal go somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is located very conveniently off the M1 and very near to Luton Airport. I found it a good overnight stopover during a cross-country business trip. A beautiful country manor that has been part-converted, offering comfortable well decorated rooms and a bar and restaurant that offers good snacks and meals and excellent service. Would recommend […] and look forward to my next stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine overnight stop; handy location for M25/A41"
This hotel is just the job if you need an overnight stay in the area, for business or a social stop. The main body of the hotel is a grand older building, with the majority of accomodation housed in a fairly new annex, connected to the main hotel. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable; if a little on the small side. Once you're out of your bed, […] you're either at the desk or in the bathroom, which again is modern and clean with a decent enough size bath. I had breakfast in the morning, which was standard hotel fare, certainly nothing to complain about. Business-wise, the location is excellent, just a couple of minutes from the M25/A41. If you arrive at night, be aware that the hotel sign and driveway is not very well lit (I missed the turning on my first pass!) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't be fooled by the lovely picture"
The actual hall and location is beautiful. If you are staying in the hotel it is a modern bolt on building next to the old hall. The pool was ok but the changing rooms were not very good. They weren't very clean and there was water all over the floor, probably because the shower curtains were broke. If you need a good, clan nights sleep, this is your […] place. Great location close to the M25 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"photos misleading & very noisy corridoors / doors"
The actual accommodation is in a very plain cheaply built brick annex. You don't actually stay or even enter into the main house area (which is what all the photos show). Poor sound proofing and poor sound limiting as a well. They should put up signs like Premier Inn do - asking guests to be quiet in corridors and when opening/closing doors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice discreet getter way"
The place is wicked nice an quiet an peaceful. Room was very very small though. Staff are really polite. The only downfall is u have to check out at 10:00am which was a bummer. From my knowledge I've always check out at 12:00pm in every hotel if stayed in..... And the wifi was very bad in my room in the lobby it was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
