Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Naldo2 Expensive and not a great greeting
On arrival the guy couldn't find my booking.
I had to ask if I qualified for points.
Poor really and not the usual Holiday Inn standard.
Room was OK and was clean.
The breakfast choices weren't to my taste.
I'd come again although not by choice.

Great location for visiting Warner Bros. Studios and also for visiting London - lovely staff and very clean hotel - ideal for families - short distance to the train and bus stations and only 25 minutes by taxi from Luton Airport -

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by helzbelz Great location for Watford Junction
Comfortable hotel with firendly staff. Noise of the trains didn't wake us up, though you can hear them when awake. Food was lovely, but no kids menu or smaller portions and took ages to arrive, which is not great with tired hungry children.
Otherwise great hotel and would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ianb123 Excellent stay, and lovely service
Only complaint is the breakfast!
Not just here, it seems to be all Holiday Inn Express, have a poor selection at breakfast. This time no bacon, and the sausages were very tough.
Other than that a very pleasant stay, nice to be welcomed as a Priority Club Member as I booked in, this must be the first time!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kazilou very accommodating
Staff, esp manager was really helpful, allowed early check in which was very much appreciated when travelling with two kids who had additional needs. Only complaint would be the bed settee could be improved, cushions kept separating and so was a tad uncomfy. Would stay here again. Breakfast was a nice surprise as we werent expecting any hot food.

Everything about the experience was good - only thing to be aware of is very tight parking if you arrive with a car, very tight!! could do with less spaces but better layout.

My daughter and I booked this hotel as it was a stones throw to harry potter studios.
We found absolutely spot on for comfort, location , cleanliness and varied breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel, location and staff; however, poor breakfast.
The hotel was in a great location. The staff were welcoming and the room was clean, sizeable and comfortable. Unfortunately, the breakfast was disappointing. Although I did leave it until 09:45/09:50 to go down for breakfast, upon my entering the breakfast area, I noted that entire breakfast selection had been cleared away. I was very disappointed that none of the staff offered to help me. In addition, when the hotel says that breakfast is served until 10:00, I expect there to be food served until then. Clearly, the hotel wanted the entire breakfast experience finished by 10:00.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin 1958 Close to railway station easy distance to Euston
The reception was very helpful with staff seeing to every need , and even giving gold elite members 200 points or a free drink.
Not is to much trouble for the staff and I ordered an evening meal.
The trains are not a problem with the hotel very near to Watford Junction Railway Station
Regards to Gabby and Phil

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Noddy22 Reasonable Value and Comfort
Ideal Hotel for visiting Harry Potter Studio and for catching trains into London.
Although Car Parking limited a space was available for our 4 night stay.
Breakfast a little disappointing with a lack of bacon, mushrooms or tomatoes and only scrambled eggs but adequate.
Rooms are a little noisy but that was mainly down to other guests not being quiet when returning.

Superb, we arrived two hours early to check in as we were heading to Wembley for the FA Cup Final, this was not a problem and check in was fast. Our party of 6 adults had two adjoining rooms which were spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was self service with a good range to choose from.
Overall 10 out of 10

As usual, Watford HI Express is a great well run Hotel.
I'm a regular at the Hotel and the staff and the cleanliness are always top class.
I'd try and change the hotel breakfast which has been the same for years but the rest is always good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rinnie Good Value and Great Location
The hotel felt clean and welcoming when we walked in. Check-in was very quick and the staff were very pleasant. The family room we had felt spacious and clean and was perfectly adequate for the length of time we actually spent in the room. We all felt there was a good choice of items for breakfast considering there is no extra charge for this. A good choice of hot drinks too and a pleasant dining area with TV and complimentary newspaper.
I think the big selling point for this hotel is its proximity to the train station and the ease with which you can get into central London. It is also very handy for the Harry Potter studios. Not sure what the facilities around the hotel are like as we literally arrived after a busy day in London, went straight to bed, then left by 8.30am.
Very impressed with the hotel and staff and would definitely stay here again if we were coming to London.

Great location, next to station, no driving - very relaxing!
Good transport links for Harry Potter tour bus - staff very helpful on arrival, pleasant and friendly. Gave good information about local area and timetable and prices for Harry Potter bus.
Room spotlessly clean and comfortable, breakfast plentiful. We have recommended this hotel lots since we returned home and will stay there again :D

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Family from Wales Good location & so friendly helpful staff
However breakfast poor quality ; revolting juices, coffee, croissants worst continental breakfast we have ever had in a Holiday Inn express. Room hot & noisy so every one in family was restless during night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michyone Perfect for Harry potter studios
We had a two night stay at this hotel and had a family room. A huge double and double sofa bed which was already made up for us on arrival. This was the second time we had stayed here to visit the HP studio. The whole hotel is spotless, our room was more than suitable for our stay. The staff at the hotel are warm and helpful and always on hand. The HP bus runs from Watford junction (about 15 mins) which is overlooked by the hotel. The London midland train is a great way to go into London too which we did many times. If you check the time table before you leave you can get Euston in 20 mins. I am sure we will visit the studios again next year and will definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fernie31 Parking and bed
The hotel has two small carparks at the rear at a cost of £5 pernight. If you pay for one of them and go out in your car and your space is then taken you cannot park in the other car park without paying again. A ridiculous system. The hotel also cant refund you the original money.
The bed was far too soft and we felt as if we were rolling into the middle all night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Casbah47 Great Place to stay
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Watford Junction for two nights whilst going to Wembley. The hotel is very good and situated very close to Watford Junction station. You are able to park your car on the Flag car park for a small fee. Breakfast is served fro 0730 which was good. The rooms are kept really clean and tea coffee facilities are kept well stocked. The staff are very helpful and very friendly. We will most certainly use the Holiday Inn Watford Junction again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gibbons Good Value
Three nights B&B. Very clean, good breakfast (although the plates smelt very eggy). Only problem was only 5 hangers between 2 women, no drawers to store t.shirts, undies etc. Only one very small bedside table between beds. And very flat pillows that gave us both neck ache, so I ended up walking into town and buying a cheap cushion, which solved the problem. Good location, short walk to high street, local shops and most important The Horns Pub (live music venue) which is what I came to Watford for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin 1958 Best in the UK. Staff exceptional customer care skills
Gabby and Phil certainly at Watford have exceptional leadership skills in this Hotel, and I must say how helpful all the staff are especially the reception, cleaning and let's not forget the Chef who is always willing to help.
The hotel is in an excellent location within 5 minutes walk from Watford Junction Railway Station in easy reach of the Harry Potters experience. regular trains in Euston
Well done to all you should be proud

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Swanage57 Clean and comfortable bedroom
I drove to this hotel, difficult to find with limited parking. I parked on the road outside hotel, so had to move my car by 8 am.
The hotel seemed new and staff were welcoming.
I was a bit surprised with room service, there wasn't any! The menu selection downstairs was very limited. The breakfast selection was ok, but hot food was only some semi cooked sausages and scrambled egg.
Overall hotel served its purpose.
