Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Naldo2 I love staying here
This was my umpteenth stay here and it's always the same, friendly, great facilities and the food's great too especially when they put on a theme night buffet.
I ran a seminar here and the conference facilities are just as good as the hotel stay.
The location is good as it's handy for the train to London and very good for M1 access.
The staff are really interested in your opinion regarding your stay, clearly a well managed hotel run by motivated hotel staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finnford Great stay and perfect for visiting Harry Potter studios
Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Hemel Hempstead. Staff were all very helpful, hotel was clean and comfortable, food and service at breakfast and in the evening was excellent. Swimming pool was great for the children and for us. We used it as a base for a few days visiting nearby locations, including the Harry Potter studios and a day trip into London, and for this it was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just James Anniversary weekend
My wife and I decided to spend our 46th wedding anniversary visiting London to see the new Mss Saigon musical. We also had tickets to see the Warner Bros studio for Harry Potter and we decided to combine the two on the same weekend. As a result I booked the Holiday Inn at Hemel Hempstead which afforded us the best base to visit both events. The hotel was an excellent choice and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of doing the same sort of weekend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by liverpol family convenient and comfortable
overall very good experience,
bed comfy, sofa beds could be more comfy for teenagers. we had space for two sofa beds in our room.
room size and facilities met our needs, we were told we had one of the larger rooms which gave enough space for two adults and two teenagers (it also had space for a travel cot if needed)
pool and jaquzzi were a welcome extra to help relax at end of journey.
close to warner bros harry potter tour

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hobbs31 Fantastic, friendly staff and great facilities.
We (two children and two adults) stayed during a visit to the Harry Potter Experience and we couldn't have had a better stay. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, our family room was very clean and comfortable, indeed you can choose pillows to suit, I.e soft, firm, down etc, and the spa facilities were fantastic. The swimmers pool is lovely and warm and mostly just a metre deep so great for the kids. We ate our evening meal in the restaurant which was such good value as children eat for free when accompanied with an adult and breakfast was amazing, especially the pancake machine - the kids were seriously impressed! We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Although the bathroom furnishings are a little 'tired' this hotel was beautifully clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficent, leisure facilities excellent and the food (especially breakfast) hot and tasty. The hotel was great for the family and we stayed before a visit to Whipsnade Zoo - well worth it too!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nick2706 Decent, but nothing special.
The room was comfortable but the fixtures and fittings and furnishings looked "tired"; it could benefit from a makeover. When I was there they had a very decent buffet dinner and the restaurant staff were pleasant and attentive. There is a decent gym with a good pool. The main negative for me was that although I had a non-smoking room I could smell smoke as soon as I entered. I didn't request a change as it wasn't too bad but was irritating. Overall I would say this is a perfectly reasonable Holiday Inn with no major problems that represents reasonable value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pekay Good Stuff!
Simply clean and welcoming, no fuss but no frills - you know what to expect and you get it - EXCEPT - the staff were exceptionalkly friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable. They dealt very well with a nonsenical customer "complaint". Well located and easy to find too. Good Stuff, recommended!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sdlfclark Lovely staff shame about the noise
Do not take a room which is situated over the entrance to the spa/leisure centre at this hotel as you will not be able to get to sleep.
Also all the pillows are the same so if you want a really soft pillow take your own as I had a headache when I woke up (woken up by people arriving for the spa!!).
However despite this the staff were wonderful and the breakfast was very good x

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Naldo2 One of my favourite hotels
As usual a great welcome.
Slight problem with my room and sorted out straight away with no fuss. This really matters.
The breakfast here is excellent, well cooked by the chef and the 2 ladies who usually work in the restaurant in the morning a very nice and welcoming.
The evening menu is good and it would be even better if it was changed more often.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ianlancs Overall a very nice hotel
We stayed here because we were attending a family event near Hemel Hempstead. The hotel had a good feel and facilities were a lot better than budget hotels. Price obviously played a part in our decision and the offer price was good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by everonica Holiday Inn review
Customer Serice was great, staff were very helpful.
The room was lovely and clean.
The gym and pool area are good, the pool is a little small.
10 minute taxi journey from the nearest train station which costs £10.
15-20 minute taxi jounrey from Harry Potter studios which is around £15.
Downside is you do not get free wifi and the food is a little expensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weareleeds4 Always nice in Hemel
It's always nice in this hotel. The staff were especially nice and also prefessional on this visit. Breakfast was nice as it usually is here. My only criticism is that a lighter quilt should be used at this time of year - in hindsight I should have turned on the air-conditioning and closed the window while I slept.
