Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great experience here, the staff went above and beyond expectations and although my stay was short, it was very enjoyable. The lady at the front desk (whose name slips my mind but had glasses and blonde hair) was really welcoming and was particularly helpful when it came to me booking a train for the next day.

We have had to return from holidays in France early so on our way north we booked in this hotel. We had ad 2 terrible days travelling, but the minute we walked into this hotel it was amazing. I couldn't have cared what the rooms were like as the staff were fantastic. They were welcoming,friendly helpful and professional. I JUST LOVED Helen and so did our dog Enzo. She's amazing. Matt was lovely behind the bar. The room was clean and a lovely breakfast. Couldn't as for anything better. Fabulous stay x ❤️

Second time staying at this HI Express which is great for its proximity to the M1, London and Hesthrow. The hotel is relatively modern although rooms are starting to look a bit tired. Staff were friendly and helpful and the free breakfast is always a good bonus. Only criticisms were no eggs on offer for breakfast and no welcome drink was offered despite being an IHG member. Overall a reasonable experience for the cost.

Easy to get to from M1 and easy free parking. Very short walk to Apsley train station with direct trains to Euston. Staff were really helpful, especially Helen 😊 Nothing was too much. Very nice shower as well.

Lovely place to stay after a long day of Harry Potter. Rooms clean, bed comfortable & super quiet rooms. Breakfast was busy, maybe even chaotic but for the number of people it was well managed and no one was going to be hungry. Would stay again.
