Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Bourners84 Ideal location for London and Harry Potter tour
My girlfriend and I stayed at Holiday Inn Watford Junction for two nights between Saturday 30th November and Monday 2nd December and we were very pleased with our choice of accommodation. We needed to be convenient to the city as we had show tickets for the Saturday evening and also wanted to get some Christmas shopping done, but we had tickets for the Harry Potter studio tour on the Sunday evening as well, so needed to stay somewhere that allowed us easy access to both. With trains running from Watford Junction station (right next door) to Euston every 20 minutes or so, we had no problem getting in and out. There is also a bus that runs very regularly between the bus station (in front of the train station) and the Warner Bros studios where the tour takes place, so the location of the Holiday Inn was ideal... You can't miss the bus as it is emblazoned with 'Harry Potter' and pictures of characters from top to bottom! We found the staff to be friendly and knowledgable, the room to be clean and comfortable and the breakfast #included for all guests# to be perfectly adequate as well. You can hear trains going by but they certainly aren't what you would consider 'noisy' and didn't make our stay any less comfortable. The Harry Potter tour was excellent too!

Couldn't visit as my pregnant wife got rushed to hospital in an emergency 2 days before and was advised by the hospital she wouldn't be travelling that weekend and when I rang 2 days before we was due there, I got told I couldn't have a refund and no manager was available to speak to.... Talk about lack of personal touch... Wasted £120....wont be booking there! Can't be trusted to do the right thing, have made it clear on public forums how upsetting this really is!

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by IanH123 Great service and convenient lcation
Chose this hotel because we were visiting Harry Potter world. We had intended to stay in London and spend a long weekend there, and travel to Watford for H. Potter, but we could not get anything like a comparable price. Having said that, the hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to Watford Junction station and we were in London within 30 minutes of leaving the hotel.
The hotel itself was clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. We had a room at the front of the hotel (ie not facing the railway station) and we experienced no noise.
Would certainly recommend it if visiting H. Potter world as it is only a 10 minute drive away, or alternatively there is a shuttle bus from the nearby station. Also good value if visiting London. Tickets including underground cost us £30 for a family of 4.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by rovers105 everything we wanted
Arrived 9.30am, room ready, so checked in no prob, left for our full day in London. Train station 5min walk which was very handy for making the most of a full day. Arrived back 10.15pm, crashed out in comfy bed, good nights sleep, breakfast very good and staff very polite and helpful. All in all great stay and will use again, thank you

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by RachelVictoria Brilliant hotel & Ideal for HP Studio tour visitors!
My boyfriend and I both stayed at the Holiday Inn at Watford on 23/11/13 - 24/11/13 as we had booked to visit the Harry Potter studio.
An excellent location positioned right next to the Train Station (for those who need to get the train in.) Was just a 10 minute (if that) drive to the Harry Potter Studio tour, so absolutely perfect for that if anyone is looking for somewhere to stay.
There are some little pubs around the area, which came in handy when we arrived a little earlier than 2pm. We went across to the Prince George for the football and some food while we waited - though i'm sure the hotel would let you sit in the lobby sofas.
Straight away felt extremely welcome. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful.
There was a weird sound in our room that sounded like something expanding very loudly, we put it down to the pipes in the wall. Luckily this stopped before we fell asleep so it didn't affect our sleep quality, but it may need addressing.
The one and only down side was the parking. there's a small (and i mean small) cluster of parking spaces at the back of the hotel, not enough for everyone to get a space. (although it is free, so cannot complain too much!) Just when we went out to visit the Studio tour at 4pm, we returned back at 10pm to find no available spaces, but were able to park in front on the road, which isn't too bad as it's off the main street and is well lit.
The breakfast area on Sunday was a little crowded and was a bit stressful but the food was beautiful so it cancels it out (though my boyfriend would have also liked some Bacon, but he is fussy!)
I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Julie68 Clean comfy hotel
Stayed at this hotel as we were visiting harry potter studios and London and the price of this hotel was very favourable compared to Central London.
Location next to train station was ideal for trips to studio and train into Easton only took 20 minutes. There was some noise from station but not too bad.
Hotel lobby was lovely and light as was the breakfast area. There was plenty of choice for us for breakfast and it was never crowded even at the weekend.
Our family room was spacious, clean. And not over warm. Shower was hot and powerful and the bed comfortable.
The staff were vey friendly and knowledgable.
The Watford area is not the nicest but we managed to eat out at a Pizza Hut one night and went into London other nights.
Would stay here again. Very impressed.

Hotel very pleasant, secure, would feel happy to stay as solo traveller. Our room on 7th floor very quiet. Location perfect for travel to Wembley or London and Watford town. We had lovely meal in an Italian only ten minutes walk away. Parking handy, being cheap in the week and free at weekends. Our only criticism was the breakfast, would probably eat out another time.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Yorkie100 Helpful staff, good location
I stayed at this hotel whilst working at Leavesdon. it was modern and clean with good facilities. I had an early start on both days and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They instructed me where the best place to park for an early start and informed the morning staff that I would need access to the breakfast items, before opening time.
Perfect location for Leavesdon, great staff, clean and comfortable.
