It's ok

Posted 05-Nov-2014
Pros: The hotel is close to lots of amenities
Cons: Parking a warning about extra charge for parking would be nice and also its very limited on space.
Location: Great for Warner Bros Studios and trains into London.
We stayed in a family room the sofa bed was lumpy and made the room cramped. The main problem was the train noise which is quite frequent during the day time but increases with rush hour so be prepared for an early start after a disturbed nights sleep as the trains do run through out the night. Hotel room was tired looking.

Just the Ticket

Posted 13-Oct-2014
Great hotel for what we wanted. Rooms very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is a marvel of how much you can get into a small space. The hotel overlooks the railway station but there is very little noise from the trains and after an hour or so you do not even notice them. The staff are all very pleasant, knowledgeable and above all else friendly. The hotel has a limited menu for evening meals but what there is well cooked and tasty. Breakfast is well laid out with plenty of choice for those who want a continental breakfast. Cooked choices are limited but it is the same at all HI express hotels so this was not a problem. We stayed for two nights so that we could visit London and see a show. The train service from Watford is fast and regular. Also not too expensive. The hotel seems popular with families visiting the Harry Potter Theme Park and children seem well catered for at the hotel.

Lack of facilities

Posted 30-Aug-2014
Most of the facilities were not available eg. Restaurant, due to all regular staff being on a night out! We were handed take away menu's at reception. Would not recommend this hotel.

Convenient but noisy

Posted 24-Aug-2014
Rooms very nice well equipt and comfortable but very noisy. Windows need better sound proofing from the railway station. Breakfast ok - no bacon:-( and juice machine out of order so no fruit juice would have been nice to have seen hotel replace with jugs of juice whilst machine was fixed.

Staff very friendly and helpful, we had dinner here and although choice is limited, it was well cooked and presented. We chose it for its close proximity to the Warner Bros Studio Tour which is only 10 minutes away. We were on top floor so it was quiet and we all had a good night's sleep.
