We stayed here as part of a stopover when visiting the Harry Potter studios, the staff were very pleasent and helpful, the food was excellent too. It is slowly being refurbished but the bathroom in our room was in need of a refit as it has not been updated since the 70s, this is the only negative I could find...

Great value and location. The staff were lovely and efficient. The room was newly decorated, very clean and a really comfy bed. The bathroom suite was dated but it really didn't bother me as the bathroom was big and light with a really powerful shower. Definitely recommend if you're visiting Harry Potter, it's a ten minute walk to Watford junction...

Well this is my second visit to this hotel and they have really invested heavily and refurbished many of the public areas and bedrooms. The room was excellent and the beds are comfortable so very good all round. What stood out to me was the service...... Check in was very friendly and efficient and lady who looked after us at...

Nice reception and bar area, staff very friendly but photo above for this hotel bears no resemblance to furniture in room now after supposed improvements. New carpet but all wardrobes, bedside cabinets etc all now gone in favour of a budget hotel style like Premier Inn, with just small shelf next to bed, with shelves elsewhere and open plan hangers...

The outside of this hotel belies the interior. Having had a facelift in the reception and some bedrooms, we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was nice, but we had a few niggles with the noisy workmen,and creaky floorboards. After speaking with the friendly manager, we had a bill reduction,as we thought £89 was rather steep,especially with noisy refurbishment going on...

Very rarely stay in Watford and have never stayed here before. It is not in the best area and is obviously undergoing an upgrading program that is gradually extending throughout the hotel. It is reasonable enough if your expectations are kept real. On the positive side the staff are very friendly and the reception area is pleasant. For the money...

I had read some reports referring to a funny 'smell'. There was - it's a new carpet smell - not one to complain about really! Staff friendly and helpful and rooms are fine. Parking is limited but there is a Public car park a short walk away. Breakfast excellent.

Stayed here for one night prior to a business trip to London. The place looks a bit worn from the outside but the lobby area and bar has had a recent makeover and looks bright and fresh. The rooms are in good decorative condition although the bathroom I had was a bit dated. The bar area was large and bright...

We stayed here this weekend as we were over visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Admittedly the outside of the Hotel hasn't been refurbished (yet), but the inside of the hotel certainly has. It's lovely inside, clean and modern, as are the bedrooms which were clean, neat and modern in design. The beds were very comfortable, it was quiet and...
