We stayed for one night prior to our visit to the Harry Potter Tour. We had 3 rooms, 1 double and two twin rooms. The double was Exec (ground floor )and lovely ,decor wise and really clean- I would def stay for more than 1 night in this room, however the two twin rooms were clean but looked dated, tired and grubby , but was ok for 1 night.
The evening meal consisted of a 3 course buffet for £20 per head but the choices were limited . We decided to head down to the Toby Carvery ( approx 1 mile down the road) and paid £5.95 per head . For a delicious meal with unlimited refills on soft drinks plus two desserts our total bill for 5 came to £44.
The next morning we had breakfast ( £6.50 each) but considering 4 only had toast and cereal this seemed a bit steep.
The lounge area was nice for a cup of tea and drinks from the bar ( Archers and lemonade plus a diet coke £8.40 , pot of tea £2.75 ).
With it being a Saturday night there was also a disco for residents.
The pool area was nice with a sauna and jacuzzi , loungers were available for relaxation in a conservatory area . There is also a Seb Coe fitness suite/ gym .
All staff were very helpful and courteous at all times
Location wise, its 19 miles from centre of London ( 20 mins tube ride), 8-9 miles from Watford town centre ( £10.00 taxi fare each way ) and 4 miles from Warner Bros Studio, so central all round.
