Good place to visit Harry Potter Studios from

Posted 13-Oct-2016
Pros: good location to station and easy to get bus to Harry Potter bus at bus station
Location: reasonable restaurants nearby.
Just what you are looking for in London area but watch you do not get mixed up with the nearby Holiday Inn.

Great value and well furnished.

Great value for money, we stayed in a double with sofabed and there was ample space for the three of us. I'd highly recommend this for those on a budget.

Ok for what we needed

Posted 01-Sep-2016
The hotel & room were fine, the location isn't the greatest but as we wanted to be close to the bus station it was perfectly located for that. The room was very hot & the air conditioning was too noisy to leave on at bed time. There was a constant banging outside the window that kept me awake a good part of the night.

Great for visiting Harry Potter at WB Studios

Posted 27-Aug-2016
Great overall. We had a room away from the railway tracks so it was quiet. Somewhat difficult access for car/cab/uber drivers to find and get to but otherwise we were well cared for and even given late checkout to 2 pm so we could conclude our HP visit before leaving the hotel. 36 Pounds for uber ride to hotel directly from Heathrow.

Perfect for HP Studio Tour!!

Posted 18-Aug-2016
This was a great hotel, very clean, very comfortable with nice staff helping with everything! It was a wonderful location for the HP studio tour (why we picked this hotel in the first place) as Watford Junction is less than a 5 minute walk away. Definitely would stay again!

Good hotel with convenient location

Posted 14-Aug-2016
Pros: Everything!!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Train station close by - perfect as a base to travel in to London. Good for travel to Harry Potter studios. Watford town centre is in walking distance
We stayed at this hotel for three nights. We were greeted by friendly staff at reception and given the permit for parking - we managed to park at the rear of the hotel but spaces are limited. All areas of the hotel were very clean and in good condition. Our room was clean and very spacious - there were four of us (two adults and two teenagers) sharing a room and we weren't cramped at all. There were plenty of towels, tea and coffee facilities, shower gel and handwash in the bathroom, tv - everything you could wish for - it even had air conditioning. The room was cleaned each day and new towels provided - even though we hadn't requested it. There was some noise from the train station but that is only to be expected as it is literally only a couple of minutes away - this didn't bother us and the fact the station was so close was brilliant as we travelled to London each day. Breakfast was self-service buffet which was lovely - choice of cereals, toast, baked beans, sausages, scrambled eggs, croissants, Danish pastry, fruit, yogurts and a choice of hot drinks and juices - if you couldn't find something there that you'd like you must be extremely fussy!! Having read some of the other reviews of this hotel I was a bit worried about what it would be like but I must say we were all delighted with it and would definitely return for another stay.

Close to Train station

Posted 05-Aug-2016
Regular power cuts, very limited parking and noise from the rail line. Convenient for the train and that's about it.

Nice hotel for one night. However parking limited and a £5 charge. Poor selection for hot breakfasts just egg,sausage and beans! Rooms were clean and tidy and friendly service at reception.
