BEST WESTERN Watermill Hotel.

A home from home in Hemel Hempstead.

The BEST WESTERN Watermill Hotel is situated in a quiet countryside village just minutes away from Hemel Hempstead. Nestled quietly in Bourne End, you'll be around 3 miles away from the town centre, which means you can enjoy convenience as well as comfort.

Ideal for families, our hotel has spacious outdoor grounds for children to enjoy, while their parents can relax on our decking which overlooks the river. At the same time, our business centre makes the BEST WESTERN Watermill Hotel just as appealing to those on a working holiday!
