"Good hotel, 2min walk from station"
Can't fault hotel, it's what it would expect. Good basic accommodation. Decent breakfast, all you need. Had evening meal in room which was good. Area around hotel not good for walking around at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near to Warner Bros"
enjoyable stop over, Grandchildren enjoyed their over night stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, roomy family room"
Very helppful staff, delicious and varied breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just outside Watford Junction Railway but good windows that it didn't disturb us, even though just outside (family room 308). Obviously not sound proof but slept soundly. Great high street 10 mins walk and would recommend Tarboush Restaurant 57 Market Street WD18 0PR Open 11.00 am till midnight - 7 days a week. Great also for Harry Potter Warner Bros […] Studios - all in all great hotel with great surroundings Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Watford HI express"
Excellent value. Great hot breakfast included. Free WiFi. Nice size clean & modern family room (one night only...maybe too cramped for any more). Perfect location for trains to central London. Overall couldn't ask for any more considering the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good for trains in to londonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed with my partner before a trip to Harry Potter Warner Bros and this hotel was brilliant - especially for the price. It included breakfast and wifi, the room was large with a sofa, very clean and the service was brill. Would recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to Harry Potter experience"
The hotel staff were extremely helpful. The room was clean and spacious for our family of 4. However the sink in the shower room was cracked and the fan in the shower room did not appear to be working.Genuine Expedia guest review
Booked for family of 8 visiting Warner Brothers studios Harry Potter tour. Hotel in a great location near station & bus to studios however disappointed with rooms and service. Carpet stained in one room and very uncomfortable bed in another. Had previously arranged for rooms to be together (due to travelling with children) over the phone but this was […] not possible on the day for a reason no-one could explain. Upon check in we were given the key to a room which was still occupied! Apologies to whoever we disturbed. Breakfast poor and exceptionally busy - we had to sit in a side room - they even ran out of knives for 20 minutes. Waitress dropped cutlery on my nieces head when carrying plate! Was informed by a member of staff their Christmas party was the night before and their cover had messed up so maybe this was a one off experience? On the whole good reasonably priced base for visiting the studios but don't expect too much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
terrible place. should be avoided at all costs. smelly, tiny, dirty rooms. untrained staff, and bad location. quite a long, convulated walk from station, especially if you are lugging a suitcaseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bearable for one night."
The car park is right round the back and not signed clearly at all that's its for holiday inn guests. You then have to park up and go get a permit if you're not leaving before 8am. The room was "ok" very uncomfortable bed and lots of noise (yes it's next to the train station) could improve window seal quality ?!?!?! Will not stay again. Will return […] to the park inn next door. Staff were very nice though Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for Harry Potter"
Exactly what we wanted for our visit to the Harry Potter studios, bus to the studios right outside the train station which is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Good value plus complimentary breakfast attentive and friendly staff, would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean room and friendly staff"
Comfy room and get what you expect from Holiday Inn. Although parking was full on site and had to park outside the hotel around the corner. Can be quite noisy as you are right next to the train station, so the windows could have been better sound proofed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Always satisfied with holiday inn's but the lack of choice for the evening meal was a let down. Also the lack of parking space was inconvenient at best. All in all though satisfactory.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel, poor staff"
Hotel is nice and clean and convenient for travelling in to London. Service around breakfast time was like a scene from Fawlty Towers, food running out, no cutlery, no glasses and staff running round like headless chickens without any guidance and at time without any manners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Back street Hotel close to Watford Junction trains"
Hotel looked impressive on approach from a distance but was actually placed up back streets with awful parking facilities which have to be paid for seperately on arrival. The reception and room also appeared good quality on first impressions but we found the beds to dip in the middle giving us a terrible night's sleep (even the children rolled together […] on their bed). We were looking forward to our 'complimentary' breakfast but had to queue for ages for what turned out to be a very limited selection of sausages, scrambled egg, cereals and toast. There was, however, a good coffee machine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
No AirCon working in the room! Fan was too noisy and we didn't get much sleep! Breakfast horrible!Genuine Expedia guest review
Heading to a family wedding. A good place to stay overnight and not too expensive. Car parking notices would have been useful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very helpful service from the staff on the desk"
Was very impressed with the help and the friendliness of the staff on the desk when we arrived. They did all they could to make us feel welcome and rustle us up something to eat even though we arrived at the end of the serving period.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here twice now with work, both times the rooms have been very nice. Breakfast is pretty standard however there is a good variety. The staff are very friendly and always happy to help.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a perfect location. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast could be improved.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
Adequate facilities . Older kids so found sofa bed abit cramped for two. Breakfast very good for inclusive price paid.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, close to train station"
This Hotel has no posh trappings, but it was a nice cheap alternative to staying right in London. The train took 20 min. to Euston station (express). Place was very clean, breakfast was fine, hot and cold food on offer.Genuine Expedia guest review

Everything was excellent, Room very clean and spacious. Breakfast hot and plentiful. Loads of choice. Perfect location next to train station, Staff very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient for Harry Potter tour"
Good location for the Harry Potter Studio Tour and very close to the railway station. The trains pass quite close to the rear of the hotel, however noise was not a problem as we had the window closed and the air conditioning on. Very friendly and helpful staff , clean modern rooms, a small bar and a good value breakfast make the hotel an ideal choice […] for budget accommodation on the outskirts of London.

Very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time . The hotel was next to the station so was easy to get were we wanted to be. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing was that was no children's option on the menu for the evening mealsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room good exspect bed waa a bit wobbly . breackfast was good plenty to chouse from and all tasty overall would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel but get up early for Breakfast!"
We used this hotel as a base for trips into London and its very handy. The location of the hotel couldn't be better, 5 mins from the M1 and a stones throw from Watford Junction rail station (which has the bus stop for Harry Potter). Parking your car is only £3 a day and I was allowed to park all day for the day we were going home, but be aware parking […] is limited so arrive as early as you can! The only gripe I have is the Breakfast, make sure you go down early as we went down about half an hour before they finished. They weren't overally keen to bring fresh food out although they did. The selection for breakfast was very good though. Cereals, yogurts, fruit, cooked Breakfast etc. I would recommend to stay here and we shall be again in the near future to go to Harry Potter exhibition. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient for the station since I was working both in Watford and in central London. Despite its proximity ot the station I was not disturbed by noise at all. Surprisingly quiet hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
ruined by parking for cars first come first served about 15 spaces so had to use pay and dispay £4.50 none secure surprized to see car in the morning and not broken intoGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hard to fault"
Hard to go wrong with this place. Spotlessly clean, very convenient location next to train station, free parking (cctv monitored), quiet as long as your window is closed, friendly staff, breakfast included (though can only be described as adequate). Surrounding area a bit grotty but not too bad. We stayed for 3 days and travelled into London every day […] in 20 minutes on the train. We were very happy with our choice.

"Good proximity to station - Sunday breakfast chaos"
Very good service at check in and check out. Room comfortable and clean - no safe in room as advertised on Hotels.com. Breakfast on Sunday was chaotic at best - didn't seem to be enough staff to clear away and also replenish supplies of both food and utensils - one member of staff pulled from 'pillar to post' trying to please everyone. Expected better […] provision of staff service for a busy Sunday morning service. Food not laid out in the best way either, e.g. toast station was immediately adjacent to, and before, hot breakfast items, so there was a constant queue. Shame that let the place down, as the proximity to the railway station was a definite plus, and all other aspects seemed fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Spotless hotel. Service excellent all round, breakfast superb. Great place to stay before Harry Potter studios - not much worth seeing in immediate surrounds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I am very happy with my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked one twin and one double room for a my family and I to stay in while we visited the area to attend a wedding. I was looking for a reasonably priced, no frills, clean hotel to crash for the night. I (and the rest of the group) were surprised at just how good this place was! Spotlessly clean and extremely welcoming. There was a complementary (buffet) […] breakfast, which I thought wouldn't be up to much...how wrong I was. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking to stay in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very handy for Harry Potter studios."
Very handy for the Harry Potter studios. 15 mins from Euston to Watford on fast train. Hotel only a 5 minute walk from Watford Junction train station. Harry Potter shuttle bus goes from train station, 15 mins to studios. Hotel staff friendly, rooms modern and clean. Breakfast included in price of room, good variety of food. Scrambled egg not the best, […] but everything else good. Only 2 small gripes - air con didnt seem to cool room down greatly, but quite good & bed a bit bouncy, but OK. Overall, I would reccomend the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect hotel all round"
Perfect hotel if you're heading into London and don't want to pay london prices, great value for money, wish I'd booked 2 nights instead of one now!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, very clean rooms & great breakfast"
Me and my friends stayed for two nights and we couldn't have asked for a better hotel. The location is brilliant, about a two minute walk from Watford Junction station which was perfect for us. The room was immaculate. The breakfast was great with lots to choose from. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend others to do so.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good express hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great public transport links - Harry Potter tour"
We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting the Harry Potter tour and London. The hotal is 2 minutes walk from Watford Junction train station and this is where you pick up the tour bus for the Harry Potter studio tour. (bus stop 4 outside the station, £2 return). There is some train noise due to the close proximity to the station, but with the windows […] closed we didnt find this a problem, even my light sleeping wife. The breakfast selection was good, with sausage, beans, toast, scrambled egg, cereals, yoghurts, fruit, croissants etc all there for you to pick from along with complementary newspapers (The I). There is a good pub next to the station to stop off at when getting off the train and Watford town centre is a 5 minute walk away where there are a couple of nice resteraunts if you dont fancy eating in the hotel.

"Clean, near WB Harry Potter Studio"
Good points - clean, convenience store nearby, and less than 5 minutes walk from Watford Junction train/bus station where the shuttle bus picks up passengers to Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios. Friendly Hotel staff allowed us to leave our luggage in their locked luggage room for almost the whole day, after we checked out to go tour WB Studio. Not […] so good points - breakfast not included in room rate, Internet is only available free in the lobby but you have to pay to use it in the room, and there's no in-room safe for safekeeping laptop / passports / other valuables.

"Not a bad choice"
I could say I am so lucky to get this experience staying in your hotel. This is my first trip to London. To look for accommodation, basically I need good price, not bad location, clean and spacious for 8 nights stay. This hotel is near the Wotford Train Station, about 2 mins walk, not a tube station, we have to take the Mid-Land Train to any Tube Station. […] However, it's not really a problem, because the duration of train service is fantastic. Although its near Train Station, but its quiet. Moreover, the daily cleaning is great. Complimentary breakfast is great point. Four of us staying in a room with four big luggage, the room is spacious. The only thing that need improvement, is the bed is too soft for me.

"Avoid this place! makes Fawlty Towers look good!"
Before I rant!! I truly very rarely complain about anything as I am easily pleased. A warm clean cosy room and I am fine!! Unfortunately my family and I were in for one hell of a treat here! Placed in a smoking room and asked for a change as it was not as booked. Staff were worse than useless in helping me or offering me alternatives apart from opening […] the window!! stunk of stale smoke!! do smoking hotels really still exist?? Noisy trains running most of the night: Not there fault but still very noisy. Worst customer service I have ever experienced considering Im a very seasoned business traveller. Breakfast: utterly awful go somewhere else its cold and little choice. If I were you avoid this total dump at all costs. If it hadnt been for a great day at Harry Potter studios locally I would have been depressed to stay here and considering I was on the top floor would have happily thrown myself out!!

"Perfect for Harry Potter Studios"
We stayed here last week and couldn't find any faults. We were greeted by lovely reception staff who allowed us to check in early as our room was ready. They also printed off directions for us. Being so close to a railway your obviously going to have a certain amount of noise but it didn't bother us too much. Breakfast was included in our stay and we […] found plenty of choice for adults and kids. Would definitely stay here again. Its a two min walk to the Harry Potter bus which was great :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't have any real issues other than the fire evacuation at 10pm. I normally wouldn't have any issue at all however due to the few number if guests plus the fact the staff took pictures of us stood outside, no fire engine arrived and there was no fire...I suspect it was a drill. Unimpressed....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
