Location was perfect for Warner Bros. Studio Tour. Bus shuttle service from Watford Junction train station, just a 2min walk away, to the Studio. Easy access to London with a train journey from Watford Junction to Euston then on to the underground. Hotel was great and suited our needs perfectly. Will definitely use it again.

Don't bother staying if you have dietary needs!

The hotel staff on check in were very helpful and polite and the room itself was great. Breakfast, which was included in the price, was not. I am allergic to gluten and upon asking what I could have for my breakfast I was advised I could have a slice of gluten free bread - this couldn't even be toasted as the toasted is a communal toaster for guests therefore cross contamination would take place. My husband spoke to the Manager Dimitri who was a very rude man who couldn't care less and said there was nothing he could do. It seemed there was nothing he was prepared to do. I would have been more than happy with a boiled egg but I was told that nothing more than gluten free bread could be offered. Very disappointing and this really spoilt our stay with Holiday Inn. We won't be using this hotel or hotel chain again.

Good hotel close to Watford Junction Station

We wanted a hotel close to Watford Junction Station so that we could get the Harry Potter bus to the studio tour. It was only about a one minute walk or two minutes if you are wearing high heels. Breakfast was listed as continental which contained normal items such as cereals, juice, fruit and yogurts but also included some hot items such as sausages, beans and scrambled eggs. Perfect food after a night out at the Harry Potter Great Hall Christmas Dinner. Well priced and positioned hotel for the railway station.

Good location for the Harry Potter tour

Good place to sleep before a Harry Potter/Warner Brother Studios tour, but not necessary as London is only 20 minutes away! Limited menu, but the staff was accommodating!

Sehr sauberes Haus, sehr saubere Zimmer. Zentrale Lage, kaum 5 Gehminuten zu Watford Junktion. Bescheidenes Frühstück, bescheidenes Angebot des Hotel-Restaurants.

Kätevä työmatkahotelli

Siisti ja perustarpeet täyttävä hotelli hyvien kulkuyhteyksien äärellä. Watford junctionilta pääsee kätevästi junalla lontooseen ja busseilla lähiseudulle, myös Harry Potter -bussi lähtee viereiseltä asemalta. Junien äänet kuuluivat selkeästi hotellihuoneeseen ja liikennettä oli paljon myös yöaikaan. Kannattaa pyytää huone asemaa vastakkaiselta puolelta, jos on herkkäuninen. Keskustaan turhan pitkä kävelymatka etenkin sateella tai ostosten kanssa. Aamupala oli suomalaiseen makuun melko suppea, mutta pahimman nälän sai taltutettua sämpylällä ja jugurtilla (rasvaisen ruoan ystäville löytyy toki perusbrittiläisiä vaihtoehtoja). Passeli hotelli ainakin työasioissa matkustavalle, henkilökunta oli kohteliasta eikä yöaikaista junamelua lukuunottamatta ollut valittamista.
