“1 night dinner B & B”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

2 adults and 2 teens stayed here as part of a National Holiday's trip to London and the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studios. 100% satisfaction from start to finish. Good driver, excellent value for money, friendly helpful staff in the hotel where the rooms was very clean and modern and the food excellent with a great choice even for the 2 vegetarians in our party.
Film studios were a fantastic experience for anyone who has read a Harry Potter book or seen any of the films. The gift shop was the best I'v ever seen and I only with I had more money to spend there!

Stayed here like most people as we were going to Harry potter studios, the duty manager was very well organised, came abouard our coach and handed out room key cards to save us having to book in after long day travelling.
rooms were quite large, we had twin, beds comfy and bathroom nice and clean.
We were on an evening meal and breakfast inclusive deal, carvery with 2 meats to choose from, same as most places, could all do with being a bit hotter? but this cant be helped during carveries.
Breakfast was fab in the morning, help yourself style buffet again, lots of choices between full english, cereals fruit, toast and a pancake machine which had lots of people queueing for it?
ideal choice if going to Warner studios, only 10 mins from hotel.

Room was very good, clean, comfortable and had a double bed and a single bed for our 9 year old, rather than the usual pull out settee which was nice. The hotel has a sauna, steam room and good sized pool which was well used by the families staying there but didn't feel crowded.
The restaurant I had mixed feelings about, the main courses were very good but the children's food wasn't great..very small portions and not very exciting looking or tasting. The waiter service that was automatically added to my bill was very poor and I was very unimpressed. Breakfast, there was plenty of choice -all self service but I thought it was lacking in flavour and was a bit disappointed.
Very close and convenient for the Harry Potter tour if that's why you're headed this way and we got the room at a good price (although upon booking in, we discovered breakfast was extra which is unusual for Holiday Inns). Would use again if had reason to be in the area.

Stayed here with work and was having a chilled evening in my spacious and comfy room when I managed to trip a fuse causing the tv to stop working!! The staff attended immediately and fixed the problem. Well done, I'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed over night 2/3/13 with National Holidays, for the Harry Potter tour the next day.Even before we got off the coach, we were made to feel welcome, by a lovely young man, who brought the room cards to save us waiting. He also greeted us at our meals,and is a credit to the hotel. Loved the hotel, staff were excellent, always smiling and so helpful, room was lovely ,the evening meal and breakfast were great with plenty of choice. They had an area just for the kids, showing Harry Potter movies, with drinks and snacks. Im planning to go back to Harry Potter, and will definitely stay here again.

We stayed in this hotel because were were going to the Harry Potter Studio Tour which is not too far away. It is also close to lovely St Albans. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. I thought the decor was looking a bit tired; especially the woodwork but I couldn't fault the cleanliness. Despite not being too far away from the M1 and right on a busy dual carriageway it was very quiet.
