Excellent all round. Very good location,car parking £3 a day which is reasonable. Breakfast the best we have had in this type of hotel.The hot breakfast had to be ordered from the kitchen but service was quick and you could re-order as many times as you want,not that we needed to.

Me and my family stopped here for 2 nights. The main purpose was to visit Harry Potter world. The location of the hotel was excellent. It was a 10 minute drive to the attraction through the city centre. The room was clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. This was the first time we have had to order breakfast...

Great night away visiting Harry Potter world. Informative staff and great location, room and bar. Bed was I comfy but that's me and not the bed. Definitely recommend for price and location. We were kid free as well but have no issues at their hotels when we have the sprogs with us.

Stayed for two nights with partner. Ate at hotel first night. Had starters which were nice however staff believed 1st priority was clearing empty tables rather than clearing out starters. Was sat with empty plates for at least 20 minutes. Both ordered medium/rare steaks, they came out to us well done. Waitress asked us if we would like dessert menus,...

Really nice clean hotel that is located over the road to a massive shopping centre and a big tescos. The staff are lovely and friendly and I would most definitely recommend. The rooms are fancy with a nice size flat screen tv.

Only 10 mins drive from Harry Potter studios. 5 mins drive to Watford Junction then 15 mins by train for central London. Room very clean and beds very comfy. The childrens single was a proper bed not the usual lumpy sofa. Staff all polite and helpful. Rooms incredibly quiet. The restaurant is small so missed dinner but receptionist suggest Deliveroo...

My daughter and I stayed at this premier inn in Watford while down from Glasgow to visit the Harry Potter Studios. The staff were fantastic, our flight arrived at 7.30am in the morning and we took a taxi (quickest and cheapest) to the hotel. As you know most premier inns you cant check in until later in the afternoon but...
