Holiday Inn Express London-Watford Junction
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Watford
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Stayed as a family on the 15th Aug for 2 nights. Our primary objective was to visit London and use this hotel as a place to stay to avoid staying in London paying obscene prices. The hotel was modern, room was spotless, breakfast was sufficient. Staff where great and very helpful and the fact you can store your luggage in a room on the day of departure(and before you check in, was very good. Would I stay here again, YES. Nice one Holiday inn, your express hotels are spotless and very well run and most importantly very cheap.

Only negative is you can hear trains passing if your room overlooks the railway.

We stayed here with our 2 year old, when visiting a friend in London. As we were driving, this was an easy hotel to find, just off of the M25. We utilised the parking to the rear too (though my quibble was that the website states that parking is free at the weekend but we were still charged - but at £3 per day I wasn't overly bothered!!). We got the room on a bed & breakfast deal - when I booked I had looked at other reviews and put in a request for a room looking out onto the road as previous guests had said that it was quite noisy on the railway side. We were very grateful that they could accommodate our request as the road side is much quieter (especially good when you have a tired 2 year old on your hands!!). That being said, it's location was great for us as you really don't have far to go to get to the train station, which is then just 20mins from the centre of London - so handy!! The room was big enough for all of our stuff and the beds were comfy - plus it was really clean and appeared to be well looked after. Overall, when we come back to London the next time I would definitely try to get a room here again!!

The staff were absolutely fantastic, very friendly, welcoming and helpful- I can't sing their praises enough.

The hotel communal areas were clean and relaxing; the rooms were biger than expected, clean, well decorated and furnished, comfortable and again relaxing.

Breakfast, to quote my son, made breakfast at home seem vastly inferior and went down very well.

It was the lowest price hotel I found for the area and to be honest it really didn't show, I would DEFINITELY stay here again if I was in Watford again and I would recommend it highly to anyone looking for somewhere to stay.

Room Tip: Made the mistake of having the window open Thursday night, Friday morning there was a lot of noise o...

Good value 5min walk to station. Close to Harry Potter.Very nice helpful staff Clean and tidy breakfast is fairly basic but what there was was fine . Bit of a problem with parking as limited but staff were very helpful. Very good price for London area book more than 21 days in advance if possible we would stay again

Room Tip: face the front if possible lots of trains but well soundproofed at front

only a 3 minute walk to the train station, comfortable but small rooms for up to 4, 10 minute drive to harry potter, some bars & places to eat in walking distance--(try barracuda Mediterranean on high st. about 10 minute walk) parking is limited due to office buildings on same property, breakfast was not really good, not much selection.

All staff pleasant, polite and helpful.
They acknowledged that you were there.

Only stayed one night whilst visiting Harry Potter studios.
The hotel was approx 10 mins walk from Watford town center.
Enjoyable stay and breakfast was good value for money.
Two adults and two kids worked out at £18 each for the night totalling £72

Only thing the wife mentioned was the noise of the trains (Hotel next to train track), but the window was open and I never heard them as I am a deep sleeper.
