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.

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.
