convenient

Posted 08-Jul-2017
Pros: Everything was relaxed, you would not think you were in london.
Cons: Directions to the hotel. Well followed the sat nav and it took us to the train car park! a big sign would be good.
Location: Excellent location, very close to station and short walk into town.
Close to everything we needed, trains and town centre are walking difference. Breakfast was good, should have shut at 9.30am, but they kept it open for the late ones, my eldest is in a wheelchsir and he is not ine of the quickest of people. Thankfully there was air con, we were there during a hot spell. Room was clean and very roomy.

Perfect hotel near WB Studio Harry Potter

Posted 04-Jul-2017
Pros: I liked it's proximity to the WB Harry Potter tour and also the Watford Junction station.
Cons: I would say the breakfast selection. It was rather limited.
Location: Harry Potter tour! And with the Watford Junction station so close by, you can get into central London without issue.
My husband and I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the WB Studio Harry Potter tour in Leavesden. It had good reviews (which was important to us). The staff was friendly when we checked in and answered all of our questions (about getting a cab to the studio) and even booked a cab for us. The room was a good size and cleaned daily. We will absolutely stay here again! We thought that it would be difficult taking the tube into London, but it was not. There is actually an express train that goes from Watford Junction to Euston that is only 20 minutes! And then you're only one stop from King's Cross St. Pancras so you can also hit up the Platform 9 3/4 store and photo op. The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast. There was sausage, ham (British bacon), white/wheat bread for toast, rolls, 4 different cereals, baked beans, eggs, a couple different yogurts, a juice machine, and milk machine (which I used a lot!), and maybe a few other things that were cold. There were not any croissants when I got there even though it was only halfway through the weekend breakfast hours. Overall, a great value and location for you if you're going to the Harry Potter tour and also if you're going into London. Just make sure you allocate enough travel time.

A pleasant surprise for a so-called budget hotel.

Posted 30-Jun-2017
Pros: Clean and modernised facilities.
Cons: Nothing, considering the type of hotel it is.
Location: very close to Watford Junction Station, with plenty of trains into London Euston.
We stayed for one night at the end of June. The hotel had clearly undergone a modernisation programme, which was well done. The room was plenty big enough and the facilities perfectly adequate, especially the en-suite, which had a large walk-in shower and a powerful water jet. The breakfast was basic, but adequate ... the 'usual' continental breakfast to be found in most UK hotels these days. we will gladly return if we need a bed near London in the future.

Easy and clean

We stayed when we visited the Harry Potter studios. There is a carpark nearby. A shuttle bus runs every 15mins to the studios. Our room was ready early and was lovely and clean. Breakfast was fab!

Holiday inn watford junction

Posted 24-Apr-2017
Pros: Clean. Handy for trains. Tea and coffee in room.
Cons: Bigger area for breakfast food,
Location: Right next to station so .ca get into London with ease. Loads of really decent places to eat in watford.
Trainee staff couldn't find my booking at arrival which was worrying. Sorted after 5 mins. Room fine. Breakfast was self service and there were too many people for the space where food was and too long in queue. Small car park but got a space.

We went to the Harry Potter experience and did not want to hurry home afterwards. This hotel is only 10 mins drive. Small car pàrk. We got the last space.
