Well i think you know the kind of hotel

its very well positioned by the m1 motorway only 90 seconds away , you can not hear the traffic dont worry , the rooms are normal standard stuff but comfortable , there is next door a marks and spencers
at the petrol station so lots of loverly cheap good food , if you dont fancy paying over the odds . for mediocre hotel food , yes i do like a trouser press in my room and holiday inn always has them :)

so positive things are , great position by the motorway , 20 yards away great petrol station that has a m& s , and the sleep is comfortable , and most of all price was good

Room Tip: ask for one of the newer rooms ,

The standard of the team work of staff at our two recent stays at Holiday Inns, Corstorphine Road, Edinburgh and Hemel Hempstead was excellent, making our stay a pleasure and a joy. Attention to detail and consideration of our requirements were of the highest order. Special thanks to reception staff at Edinburgh and Cliffton Borges at Hemel. A delightful experience on all counts, room, restaurant and service was of the highest.

Stayed in this hotel with my 7 year old for 3 nights all in, first 2 nights were booked through Caledonian travel for their legoland trip which was fab! We stayed on to visit London which was great only 30 mins away by train. Evening meals both nights was a 3 course carvery which was very nice and plenty to choose from. Breakfast was amazing so much to choose from my son particularly enjoyed making his own pancakes! Our room was a good size, bright, comfortable and clean. All hotel staff were friendly and chatty and got the impression that nothing would be too much trouble. The swimming pool and the Harry Potter mini cinema was a big hit for Robbie which meant that I could relax after a long day while he was still entertained. All in all we had a great time and would definitely recommend this hotel.

We were a party of 6 adults and 6 children staying under their relax & stay package. This included b&b, 3-course evening meal and a bottle of wine. The hotel also has gym and spa facilities.

Children stay and eat free which us great and a cinema area with Harry Potter costumes and toys to play with plus complimentary popcorn - great idea as only 10 mins from Warner Bros Studios, the main purpose of our stay!

Service in the restaurant was slow but we were a big group and not in any particular rush for the evening meal.

Good quality and comfortable rooms would definitely stay again top marks Holiday Inn !!

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.
