Featured Hemel Hempstead Hotels

Visiting Hemel Hempstead
Strolling around Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town, with its 12th-century church and Georgian buildings, it’s easy to forget you’re in a post-war “new town” that’s home to hundreds of businesses. The town is a great base for exploring the footpaths of the Chiltern Hills, or visiting nearby Warner Brothers Studios for the Harry Potter tour, and it’s only half an hour from central London by train.

Hemel Hempstead: town layout
Hemel sits on gentle hills north of London, where the Gade and Bulbourne rivers meet. Roads radiate from the so-called Magic Roundabout, designed in the 1970s to ease traffic congestion. The main railway station is to the west, while just north are the shopping district of Marlowes and the Old Town. The eastern districts of Maylands and Leverstock Green are home to many local businesses. The M1 motorway passes by here, crossing the M25 on the way to Watford and London. Across the motorway stands the cathedral city of St. Albans.

The concierge recommends…

  • The Snow Centre, where you can whizz down a 160-metre indoor slope on skis or a snowboard.
  • Enjoying the fresh air among the trees in riverside Gadebridge Park.

Hotels in Hemel Hempstead
Hemel Hempstead was designed as a series of self-contained districts, so wherever you stay you’ll find plenty to do.
Accommodation near the main station or in the district of Apsley – where there’s another station – gives you easy access to London. You’re also close to the Old Town’s shops and trendy spots along the river.
Districts to the east, like Maylands and Leverstock Green, are closer to many corporate headquarters and business parks, and have easy access to the M1.

Eating Out in Hemel Hempstead
Hemel Hempstead offers a good mix of international and traditional fare, from spicy Nepalese dishes at Infinity to Keralan specialities at The Cochin and hearty pub grub at the canal-side Paper Mill.
If you have a bit more time, book a tour of Frithsden Vineyard followed by a wine-tasting session. The winery’s Terrace Café is a perfect spot to relax with homemade food and a glass of Frithsden wine.

The chef recommends...

  • Braughing sausages: A Hertfordshire speciality with subtle herbs and spices, these sausages make a delicious breakfast. Or you can serve them up for dinner with gravy and mashed potatoes.

Shopping in Hemel Hempstead
The Old Town's streets are lined with independent boutiques and antiques dealers. The nearby pedestrianised district of Marlowes is home to high-street favourites, restaurants and cafés. Marlowes Shopping Centre and the open-air Riverside precinct here add to the lively atmosphere and make the area the town’s shopping hub. If you want a full day out, head west to Jarman Square, an entertainment complex that includes a cinema, an ice rink, shops and eateries.

Hemel’s Markets

  • General market: Browse the stalls for fruit, vegetables and clothes every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
  • The Exchange: You can search for hidden treasures among the antiques and collectibles here every Wednesday.
  • Old Town Sunday Market: Held on the first Sunday of the month, this is a great place to find handmade local crafts, or to pick up fresh ingredients for dinner.

Culture & Nightlife in Hemel Hempstead
You can book tickets for an evening of theatre, film or music at The Old Town Hall, a cosy theatre housed in a Victorian building in the Old Town. During the day, pop inside to catch free art exhibitions or relax in the café.
If you crave big-screen entertainment, Jarman Square’s Empire Cinema shows everything from blockbusters to arthouse classics.

Best hotel in London
By Fussy gran17
I have recently spent several nights at Staybridge Suite London with my husband, my daughter and two young grandsons - aged 5yrs and 2yrs. I am a very regular visitor to London but this was a superb [More] venue and most certainly the best hotel that I have ever stayed in London. It was so good that we chose to stay on an extra night being very reluctant to moving on up the country. I cannot find any negative comments to make with Staybridge. Its position is excellent for both shopping and sight seeing, particularly with its closeness to the 2012 Olympic village and all that this entails. The Staybridge suites were very well equipped - with small kitchen which included a fridge, cooker, microwave and even a dishwasher (washing up liquid and dish washer tablets were even provided). Each suite was well appointed and extremely clean. Breakfast is provided with every taste provided for, not to mention ample tea/coffee/ carbonated water provided free of charge 24/7. Laundry provision is available with excellent washing machines and tumble driers - again free of charge. Staff were superb - right from check-in and being available 24/7, helpfully addressing even minor queries and always very pleasant. Breakfast room staff were particularly helpful, especially with our two young children - keeping them entertained as well as well fed. I have stayed in many many hotels,but this one is definitely the best ever and I would highly recommend it for all age groups. My only regret is that I didn't find Staybridge a long time ago! Thank you everyone - I cant wait to visit again - I just wont consider staying anywhere else in London in future. [Less]

One of the nicest Holiday Inns
By CarryOnAndy
Only stayed one night, and think we had an Executive Room, which was of a high standard of décor/quality. Didn't have a particularly good nights sleep, but all other aspects of the stay were [More] excellent. [Less]
Good value and nice swimming pool
By Curious visitor
Stayed one night to visit Reading. The hotel was very clean throughout and car parking was free. Spa and gym felt cozy and not too overly crowded, pool floor was clean and felt comfortable to walk [More] on. There is a train next to hotel that takes you directly to Reading. We tried driving in and the road was shut off and ended up taking a very long detour and traffic was busy. Will use train next time. Excellent value for money and it definitely looked and felt like a four star hotel. [Less]
By Zach666
Not hotel's fault but someone had added seeds to the fruit compote! Excellent front desk each time I used - service with a smile but not too over the top! Really good room service - very [More] quick. Asked for extra coffee with room service - (not Holiday Inns fault but not expecting this to be remembered) - but was so pleased it did get delivered - these are the little things that make the difference ! [Less]
