This hotel is situated within a few minutes walking distance to the centre of Watford. We walked into town for dinner in the evening and breakfast in the morning (starting at £11-odd for a continental breakfast, we preferred to eat elsewhere).
I work in a hotel myself, so I have high expectations of service, cleanliness and general hotel experiences. The service at the reception desk was kind, informative and pleasant. We didn't really come into contact with any other staff during our stay.
Our room (no. 70 I think?) was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was very large! There were three of us so the sofa was converted into a sofa bed which seemed to slip and move and fall through during the night. It's unfolding also restricted access to the tea making facilities and the general dressing table area, which is a shame. For three adult women, I believe we could have done with a larger or better spaced out room. The bathroom was designed for disabled guests so it was huge. All facilities worked well, except there didn't seem to be fan in there, which left it very steamy and hot.
Our room overlooked a street and proved to be a little noisy (we had to have the window open as it was a little hot), so if you're sensitive to noise I wouldn't recommend this room. We all had a good nights sleep though and both beds were comfortable.
As I said earlier, we did not have breakfast at the hotel as it proved to be incredibly expensive, especially compared to the tasty and reasonably priced scrambled egg on toast that we had in town in the morning instead.
Thank you for a perfectly comfortable stay and I hope you take my comments on board:-)
ALSO - we stayed at this hotel as it was only 15 minutes away (by car) from the Warner Brothers Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter. less
