What a friendly welcome! helpful and attentive staff especially Kerry and Charlie. Bags of choice for food and drink. really good wifi and coffee, A modern feel with excellent access to main line train station into London. overlooking the pretty Apsley Lock and canal.

Stayed 2 nights over a weekend, used as a base for a day in London and a day at Harry Potter world. Perfect for what we needed. Well located, nice pub next door for food and drinks. Train station just across the road, to commute to London. Room was great as a place to sleep. The sofa bed was small.. Breakfast also good. Would recommend for families using as a base out of London.

I held a training session here for 3 days and stayed overnight on one night. The bedrooms have been refurbished an my room was very comfortable, clean and had everything you need. The training room was a bit dated and the lighting is horrible, bordering on dangerous. They really need to upgrade these rooms, The food and service was very good and the staff went out of their way to ensure everything ran smoothly.

Stayed at Hemel Hempstead Hoilday Inn Express on Friday 2nd June. Very friendly reception staff. Nice room, air conditioning on so lovely and cool when we entered. Good night's sleep, great power shower, and the breakfast was fine too. Two of us stayed here for £55, with breakfast and free wi-fi, this is probably hard to beat. The only problem here could be the car parking. We had gone to a wedding reception, and on returning at 12.30 am, the parking area was full bar one space, which we managed to use. The car park is shared with apartments. Next time I return here will park early and then use train station which is handily across the road. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Spent 7 nights here for business and was very satisfied with the hotel. Modern and clean with a very good complimentary breakfast. Nice local area with a good pub on the backdoor step. Would definitely recommend staying here excellent value for money

On business in the area and stopped over night. Quick easy check in. Staff were smart and polite. Even helped with meal recommendations locally on offer. The room was compact, but modern, very clean and comfortable. The same for the bathroom. Slept well, but could have been better if the A/C was fully working. They never seem to get cool enough. The complimentary breakfast provided in the morning was very good. Ample choice of hot and cold food. All well prepared. Without hesitation I would stay here again and highly recommend this location.

Does what it says on the tin really. Clean rooms with comfy beds. Nice free breakfast! Couple of restaurants nearby and great links to London. Good free parking and Friendly staff. Rooms are quiet and well sound installed

Just returned from a bank holiday weekend stay at this hotel as we were visiting Harry Potter studios and cannot fault anything. The location, the rooms, the cleanliness, the food and the friendliness of all the staff. Whilst commenting on the staff I would like to especially commend Sophie and Kerry on the reception desk as they were most friendly and professional especially when dealing with the aftermath of the BA airways debacle on Saturday evening and made us feel really welcome. If their bosses are reading please take note as people are too quick to complain but these girls really do deserve credit. Thanks for making our weekend.

I have stayed at this hotel few times, double rooms are nice, the staff are great however the breakfast was dissapointing I enjoyed the coffee machine the most! That was only in the mornings Would stay again however take a trip to the local cafe for food.

My wife and I booked this because it was close to the Harry Potter studio tour. It is in a great location and only a 10 minute drive away and very easy to find. We checked in around 2pm and there was no hassle or fuss. We actually had a voucher from Superbreak and they found our details easily. Every staff member we spoke to were extremely friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean, spacious and we had an excellent nights sleep. You can connect to WiFi instantly. This was our first stay at a Holiday Inn express and we were so impressed that we will be staying a lot more. The only reason this doesn't get five stars was we were planning to eat in the restaurant but there was no chef available that night. We were a little annoyed because we were very hungry and every restaurant around there area was already fully booked (my advice would be to make sure you book somewhere to eat if you plan to go out) However, the customer service was excellent once again and we ordered a pizza and the staff member even delivered it to our room for us. She was great. I wish I caught her name. To top it all off, the breakfast in the morning was superb. Plenty of selection of continental foods like cereals and croissant's as well as a hot selection of sausages, beans, eggs and bacon. Check out was an absolute breeze as well. If the occasion arose, we would stay here again in a heartbeat.
