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
"Right environment away from home.."

"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.

Very pleased with the hotel. Room good, staff friendly, food good and nice location.Genuine Expedia guest review
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
"What a total Disaster!!!!"
Superb pics of a stately home, but then you drive round the back to a modern hotel bearing no resemblance to what you have booked. Buy a mondeo and get round the back to find a fiesta!!!!! I arrived at 8pm Sunday and it was -2c but no radiator on in room. When i turned it on it made a really loud noise and carried on doing so and i had to move rooms […] but had unpacked. No offer to help me just got moved to a room down corridor. I went to the bar which was freezing also, paid £4.30 for a pint of lager(menu said £3.85) and then went to be on a rock hard mattress as other reviews have said.......DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL!!!!!!!

"Disappointing and in need of attention."
Disappointing. Miss-representation of the surroundings, the hotel shown is a character building where as the rooms were in long, dingy, cold corridors separate to the house. The rooms were cramped and the communual areas need attention.The swimming pool changing rooms smelt of cigarette smoke and the pool area is poorly kept with mold on the loungers […] and structural issues in the conservatory area making it cold, wet and unwelcoming. The swimmingpool changing areas were unkempt, shower curtains broken etc. Overall disappointing. Won't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great location just of the M25 and A41, perfect for North London destinations.Rooms are very compact but apart from that everything else is well above average. Super comfortable Bed, clean and well maintained room, great shower, nice Bar and food offering, what more do you need for an overnight whilst working in the North London area.

"quick stopover on the way home"
An excellent venue, very relaxed and ideal for our stopover on the way home from Heathrow airport. Conveniently situated just off the M25 motorway.

Excellent value for money place to stay. The hotel is well laid out and the rooms although small were lovely. An excellent good nights sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our two night stay in this hotel. It was handy for us as we were visiting friends in nearby Watford. The swimming pool was great - though the changing rooms were a bit small and were for both men and women - so we got changed in our room before going to the poolGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very clean but average Hotel"
Nice setting but average room for price which was quite small with no armchair. Breakfast buffet was £10.50 each and quite good with plenty of bacon etc but limited fruit salad and only fried eggs. Cheeper than Hiltons breakfast but not as good. Free tea and coffee with biscuits hidden near bar which was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Harry Potter Tour"
We stayed here to visit the Harry Potter sets. The hotel was close, but I wouldn't have fancied walking there! Hotel was lovely. Some confusion on arrival after booking through hotels.com - 4 rooms instead of 2! Receptionist was helpful though. Kids enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was quite pricey at £10.50 pp. Rooms were nicely decorated and clean although […] on the small side. Staff were pleasant and helpful throughout even though they were busy with 2 weddings.
