Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Harry Potter Family Fans Great service and attentive staff
We chose this hotel due to the reasonable price and proximity to the Harry Potter Studio Tour (10 minutes by car).
Upon arriving at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised as we have had mixed feelings of a Holiday Inn Express at another location in the past.
Hemel Hempstead though was clean, modern and very well represented by the staff especially upon arrival, the check-in desk staff made an effort to talk to my 7 year old about the Harry Potter studio tour that we had come for and even gave HIM the map of how to get there which was a lovely touch and got him even more excited than he already was.
The ONLY bad thing I can say for the hotel is that the breakfast juices were of very poor quality, but the rest was very good indeed.
Overall, nice hotel

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hobbit1958 Probably my least favourite Hi Express
Having staff doing reception and bar at the same time doesn't work at busy times.
A refurb of the funiture in the bar area is long overdue.

Hotel is in a pleasant location by the marina and nearby pub and restaurants.
The rooms are very comfortable.
Some friends staying in the hotel on the 3rd floor were very upset about noise from children who were running around the corridors between the hours of 4 am and 7am. The receptionist allowed them a small discount for this interference of their otherwise enjoyable stay.

The location makes it.
Right next to canal and great walks and restaurants and the Paper Mill pub.
Breakfast suffers with lack of choice and very poor coffee m/c and awful juice m/c (reconstituted orange juice went down the sink).

Lovely location on the edge of a canal. Very close to the train station. Free on site parking. Friendly staff and spotlessly clean rooms. Ideal as a base for London or Harry Potter. This was our first Holiday Inn experience and we were totally happy.
