“Relaxing hotel and not too expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Hilton hotel in Watford for a weekend as we were there to see the Harry potter studios. The hotel was fantastic for the money we paid. Our room had a comfy bed, very good tv and bathroom facilities and other helpful accessories.
Looking for someway of spending our sat afternoon, we found the spa section which has free pool facilities along with a jacuzzi and gym and steam room. The breakfast buffet was also fantastic with so much choice I had to go up for 4ths.
All in all a lovely hotel if you want a relaxing stay and or indeed you are visiting the warner bros studios down the road! (Which is also amazing)

had a very good stay at the Hilton Watford, staff were excellent, food was very good especially the breakfast, I used the gym while I was there and found it a bit on the small side other than that it was a clean and well maintained gym, room was large, clean & comfortable.

We stayed for a night at this hotel, the room a good size, clean and had all the things you'll need. The staff were friendly and service was good. We ordered room service, they said it would be half an hour and it arrived in less.
The only thing I didn't like was when at one point of our stay someone knocked at the door, since I wasn't expecting anything, I did not answer it at once; but the door just opened and it the room boy asking if we ordered extra beddings. This too me is inappropriate.

What a disappointment. We thought this would be gem given the Hilton Brand. This hotel was nothing but awful.
1) we were given a smoking room, so the room wreaked of smoke and yucky smell.
2) no air conditioning so we couldn't sleep at all
3) elevators were broken so we had to walk to the back of the hotel to get to our room
4) pool was closed
5) no free wi-fi in your room.
We will never stay here again ever.

You will know I like the Hilton chain and this is another I have used regularly over the years, always a good attitude by staff who are genuinely friendly and eager to please.

Not the modernist hotel but you can get a deal here and it's in a good position just inside the M25 close to the M1 which makes it easy to get in and out of, so you can usually stay here for a great deal less than London.

The staff at this hotel are extremely polite and helpful, public areas are clean and well maintained. When originally going to book this room I phoned the hotel direct and came away without booking as they wouldn't match the prices I had seen on the internet and said I would have to change rooms for the 2nd night of my stay, however when I did book through the internet the next day at half the price quoted on the phone I didn't have to change rooms, even got offered choice of floor on arrival! Bed very comfy, but what let this hotel down is the dated décor and furniture, desk looked like something we used to have at school, not designed with a lady in mind as you couldn't sit at the desk to do hair and make up as the mirror was far to low for the chair and desk so you had to stand at the floor length mirror to get ready then struggle as the cables didn't reach! The bathroom was very dated and needed a deep clean when you lay in the bath you could see just how filthy the toilet was under the rim and the handles, taps on the bath needed scrubbing with bleach!

Booked accommodation for the nearby Harry Potter World tour for my daughter and I . Excellent hotel , good value for money and literally 10 mins from the tour. Also a Toby carvery 2 mins walk from the hotel for tighter budgets.
