Have stayed here a few time snow and each time something happens that makes me think I should give the Mecure Watford up the road a try.
The hotel has everything you should need for a business stay over, coffee shop, 2 restautant/pub places, early opening gym etc, but nothing seems to feel right.
The rooms are dark and poorly lit, good luck trying to see what is in the wardrobe. Took ages to work out how to use the Sky/TV system, the Upper Deck rooms are advertised as being better than normal rooms, but having used both I can't say I see much difference.
The food in the Italian place was okay, staff were friendly, but no draft beer and what bottled beer they had was warm.
Breakfast is okay, but a Mecure, Novotel and Premier Inn (yes!) offer a better selection and quality.
It's location makes it good for business and the 6am gym & pool is great if you're up early.
I wouldn't stay here for pleasure, but as a business stopover it just about does the job provided you close your eyes and ignore the fact it could be so much better.
