Nice breakfast, good parking, good location just out of the main town Stayed on Floor 2 and had wooden floor above us and all you could hear was creaking noises where other residents were pacing around all night. At least I think that is what they were doing.
Room very good, breakfast very good Wrong price charged at checkin, but corrected on production of paperwork.....bar prices very high, no bar snacks, no draught beer, no ice. There was a party night in the hotel, when we arrived back from an external event we were met by a police van hauling fellow guests out of the hotel......
Hotel heating was stuck on full and the room was extremely warm, the road noise made it impossible to leave the window open, the shower mixer knob was broken and the shower head wouldnt direct over the bath due to worn fitting.
Was given the smallest of rooms, with bed sided by wall. There was no light on the desk, and the single light in the bedroom hall was not sufficient. For th price of the rooms they could offer internet for free. Carpets were durty and smelly all over the hotel. This hotel would certainly do with a massive refurbishment.
The restaurant staff were outstanding, warm & friendly, and genuinely eager to serve. The dinner was also good value for 17 pounds, and the breakfast was superb. The bar staff were friendly and helpful, and we especially enjoyed drinking our bottle of wine after dinner in the garden patio. The room was so hot, it was almost impossible to sleep. Never stayed at a Hilton anywhere in the world that didn't have ac. And the parking lot and street outside were very noisy, with a lot of screeching tires and gunning motors. The wireless provided by bt is also greatly over-priced.
I liked the look of the hotel. The friendlyness of the staff holding doors and generally being polite. A+ I stuggled to understand the accent of the front desk workers. We got lost in the hotel a few times, not enough signs from the stairs + lifts to the front desk.
The friendly staff at the reception desk Family room (adjoining room) all I wanted was a double room
The hotel was convenient to the event we were visiting (Patchetts equestrian Centre). I was impressed with the comfort of the beds!breakfast was excellent and the bar was good. My husband visited the pool area and found it good Ok. This is not about us, but what we witnessed and overheard whilst checking in. Another customer was complaining about a charge on his room, when he had not bought anything. It was explained that this was in case he used something like room service etc or made any charges on his room. The customer did not understand, and I am afraid that the male receptionist argued with him and it got very heated. Please remind whomever it was that the customer is always right and just say I am sorry. The charge was taken off but the customer was very upset and quite rightly. We were also charged but our female receptionist explained it well......
The warm and welcoming staff - at reception, cleaining the room and at breakfast satnav took us to the wrong side of the road
It's very modern and new hotel, good breakfast, nice rooms,located in the city center No mini bar in the room, payble WiFi (5 GBP for 1 hour, 10 GBP for 24 hours)
The staff werre very professional and helpful. The hotel was very clean and the room very spacious. There was no parking at the hotel although once you had found the nearby parking it wasn't too bad.The bar food and drinks were rather expensive.
The Jurys Inn Watford was lovely and warm. We asked for a quiet room and got it. It was lovely and clean basic but bed was very comfortable. Bath was very clean and I had a daily bath - a practice I would not usually do in hotels. I found the bath small but more comfortable than my own one at home which is very large - it just moulded to the shape of the body. I thought shower rail with semi circle gave a lot more room in the shower. We also ate most of the time in our room for convenience as we were over for a family wedding and it suited us to rest between functions. Reception was very nice, but one of the barmen referred to my husband Noel as you lot - the Irish - which would be a very racist comment!! Staff did not seem to know anything we asked them - they had to look everything up on the web - even what terminal the flight to Ireland went from when taxi was waiting. I think Jurys should have a chart of terminals for all countries from which they have clients and it could be posted in reception area thus obviating necessity for asking in the first place.
The staff went OUT OF THER WAY to be accommodating, helpful, friendly and generally go "above and beyond" to provide outstanding customer service. Deputy Manager Rob was wonderful as was Ellie and the rest of the staff!!!!!! I also would like to compliment the wait-staff at the breakfasts--they were AMAZING--couldn't do enough for us...every morning and every day of our stay. Jury's Inn is to be commended on their staff training and customer service policy!!! The room assigned to us left a lot to be desired. The room we PAID for an upgrade for, was much, much better.

Hotel was clean and well maintained, service was good, food and restaurant were both very good.
Very high standards all round. Difficult to park as with a lot of towns now. Parked about a mile away.
this was our 2nd visit to Jurys inn.. we have family living in watford so it was a perfect base while we visited. the location is lovely and the high street in watford has everything we needed.
Central location Near to shops Close to Rail Station Easy to find Spotlessly clean No on-site parking
Sink stopper would not rise. Removed same but staff replaced it daily w/o repair
Price fair for the quality of the room Lack of parking
nice having a bar, free breakfrast buffet, coffee and tea started at 430am. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Convenience. Restaurant good for what it does. Order off the specials board. Very well sound-proofed.
closeness to airport, clean, efficient room no warning that there would be a charge for parking the car overnight check in staff short on charm!
Location location location Nothing bad
Excellent location by the airport, nice and professional personnel, professional services, clean
Ran out of things at breakfast time
the attention given by check-in staff and the comfort of the rooms,good food none
Excellent location close to airport. Very quiet and comfortable room with good shower. Complimentary breakfast was fine with good quality ingredients .On a freezing cold weekend, the hotel was very warm and cosy. Whilst dinner was of acceptable quality, the menu was perhaps overpriced because of the captive market. I do resent paying £5.90 for a glass of not very good wine.
Hotel is very near to airport and i was satying to pick up some friend of mine and it became very easy for me .
The breakfast was a 10/10 night staff on reception left us waiting for entry into the hotel, until he had finished a phone call. Barman ignored us when we tried to order food and drinks and served a customer who had obviously been in the bar all night giving tips to the staff! Night staff were very poor to say the least!
Location, excellent breakfast buffet, good food in evening offerings Unable to call internationally and night staff had no clue about solving situation.
The location from the airport, very convienient. Ideal for a business person or a family looking for a one night stay. Staff very friendly and efficient There are no complaints
Nothing The room was very small The shower was very small Nothing was good about this place
No obvious directions from the airport terminal to Ibis Hotel for guests not arriving by car. There is a regular bus service (stop en route to Parkway) but it isn't well promoted.
Location for airport. Good bar and restaurant area unusual for an Ibis. Usual Ibis cleanliness.. Watch out for the pricing policy. The published rate is a fiction. Always book in advance to fix the rate.
Friendly staff at the reception. Within 10 minutes' walk from the Luton airport. We sat at the hotel restaurant table for 20 minutes without even being noticed by the staff. And oh yes, we tried everything except shouting. They just walked on by, so we left to dine elsewhere. The Internet tv image resolution was lousy and the tv channels did not show properly (antenna or cable defect?)
the bed was really comfortable none
perfect location for very early flight next morning
It's less than 15 minutes walk to Luton Airport The bed in the first room they gave me apparently hadn't been changed from the last occupant since it contained several long black hairs. I asked for a different room and was given one, but this changeover ate into the five hours sleep I was already limited to and should not have been necessary.
Restaurant staff seem to be bothered by our presence and not too will to see if we required service at all or not
Room was comfortable, cosy and very clean. Lobby/bar area was cold, was freezing outside but maybe heating could've been turned up.
We arrived late and the staff were welcoming, friendly and gave an excellent service. Location very good. 24-hour bar a great asset. Room was much too small, very clostrophobic. We stayed in room nbr 106 (ground floor), window faced the car park and we had no privacy - only if the curtains were drawn. Curtains were damaged and did not close properly. Price of gbp 79 far too high for these standards.
The buildings and grounds are superb, the spa is very good but most importantly the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Anthony at concierge.
Hotel was Luxurious, Staff friendly and Spa facility amazing, would Highly recommend. No, all good
- Pet friendly - Beautiful building with beautiful rooms and beautiful gardens - The kitchen is just regular - We had to queue for the breakfast because the room is too small - We had to reserve even for the 5 o clock tea hours in advance
Luton Hoo is a superb hotel The staff are excellent and very professional the buildings impressive and the dining rooms spectacular .. we did not play golf but we did think the course looked very boring ...the spa was wonderful and the rooms very comfortable and extremely spacious We had a room in the coach house [ an ungrade not asked for but offered ! ] It was above the pro shop of the golf course and very noisy [ beware ]
The restaurant in the hotel, The Wernher, was superb. The food was totally excellent. Worth every penny! The service was very good too. The hotel itself is beautiful , inside and outside. The grounds are lovely. When i booked, i was given the impression that the room would have views of the grounds,as that was part of the room description. But we were given a room that was far away from the grounds and below the ground floor. But the room itself was gorgeous.

Every aspect was ideal for the peaceful, luxurious and celebratory stay for which we were looking. The management of the restaurant seemed to leave something to be desired. Whilst the staff were pleasant, helpful and courteous, many of them appeared to be wandering around aimlessly as if they did not know what they were supposed to be doing. Further, there must surely be something to be said for guests to be allocated tables for the duration of their stay, rather that allocated haphazardly at each meal.
There was insufficient lighting in the bathroom and bedroom to make up. Please please allow pets!
i booked for my 21st wedding anniversary as a surprise for my wife. The entire weekend was absolutely brilliant, outstanding historic building, great facilities,wonderful staff, fab food, we enjoyed the spa too. We will recommend to freinds and return without doubt. no
For a stately home it had a homely atmosphere.
The hotel itself is grand and beautiful with lots of character. The staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and the food was delicious. We loved pre dinner drinks and the atmosphere in the lounge with the fire burning. The swimming pool and sauna and steam room were great. The jacuzzi had the most powerful jets and we thoroughly enjoyed being the only guests that afternoon as they only just opened the pool. The walk around the hotel is lovely with the secret garden making it more attractive.
Very nice room with upmarket fittings. Paper thin walls between rooms. You could hear everything going on. Very poor breakfast that doesn't do justice to the Hilton brand. Surprisingly the breakfast was no better in quality over a premier Inn. Premier Inn comes out on top in terms of quietness. Their doors don't slam.
chack in took too long
Nicely decorated reception area and room. The location isn't great for central Luton.
Hotel staff very friendly, room very clean and comfortable
the cleanliness of the room and facilities in general was quite impressive the shower was faulty in my room, sort it out guys! it's an unnecessary blip on your otherwise unblemished record
so the bed was very comfortable as was the room in general the view from the room wasn't fantastic but thats a stretch to find something wrong to say
the perfect comfort of beds, the cleanliness of the room and bath, the restaurant and its prices No bus to and from the Luton airport. Distance to Luton Airport; although on websites it says the hotel is pretty close to the airport, actually it is not that close.
Clean. New. No bar facilities in room. No bar late for customers. Cold reception. Staff foregin and not very warm on arrival. Food awful
Lovely new and clean hotel, friendly porofessional staff and a very comfortable night. The restuarant is large and rather lacks atmosphere. £9.50 extra per person for breakfast a bit expensive so we gave it a miss.
Lovely room, excellent value for money
For the £65 I paid I wasn't expecting one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and I include in this list some prestigious 4 and 5 star hotels and lodges. The room was large, well appointed, the bed supremely comfortable, the shower large and like standing under Niagara Falls and the free internet access and widescreen tv were an added bonus. We stayed in the hotel for dinner and were very impressed with the quality and value. Breakfast at £9.95 was also excellent. I cannot fault any aspect of this place and would highly recommend it to anyone. Let's hope that once the smell of fresh paint subsides the staff are equally enthusiastic.
The room that I had was too warm and I was unable to cool it without increasing the traffic noise from the busy road outside. Plumbing noises were all I needed for an early morning call and that was with ear plugs in situ! The mattress offered had broken spring metal hanging out of it and the cover was ripped The breakfast menu had two types of sausage offered and I asked for the Cumberland sausage, the three that I was offered in no way resembled the said sausage at all.
No stairs Noise from closing of doors during night.
ample parking beds very hard, room dated and tatty, bathroom grout and silocone was black in places
As a single female traveller, I would have preferred not to be on the ground floor.
Hotel with everything, restaurant, bar, gym, pool and comfy room Shame that the WiFi is not free. I think all hotels should provide this now for free.
Was for work - not pleasure!! Meal in the Thistle restaurant was nice Very shabby and dated - could do with a face lift
Everything was bad, rooms dirty, rooms to hot, room service poor, staff unhelpful and miserable looking, no vegitarian dishes, harldly any drink at the bar.
The fact I booked and paid for 3 twin rooms at the same time, one for us, one for my parents, one for my son. It was our treat for my parents as it was my son's graduation. 3 times my father was told that his room had not been paid for and was asked how he was going to pay.
use of the leisure facilities
I liked the main part of the hotel,, restaurant, pool etc The staff could not get the so-called central heating to work. It looked more like an air conditioner. There was a moveable electric radiator, but they are dangerous to use at night
In center and easy to come to.
Location, cleanliness, newly refurbished
It was everything we had hoped for - excellent location and an interesting historical building. Good breakfast and comfortable night.
Although there was a notice advising that the water inthe shower tap was very hot, we were unable to control the heat of the shower, as no cold water came from the tap!
Well equipped comfortable room. Cosy bar. Good breakfast with rapid service. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and tidy throughout. Get there early to find a parking space (they do have an overflow car park along the road so there's always somewhere to put the car).
Location. Breakfast was cold, teapot poured everywhere but in the tea cup.In the room there was not a welllit mirror for applying make up, not even the bath room mirror was well lit.
Staff were good and the room was well prepared
I didn't feel rooms were that clean and quality of furnishings were poor. Car Parking was also a pain!
excellent location,during a cold spell in St. Albans the hotel provided a nice warm and pleasant oasis.. sant nothing
Hotel is central and close to amenities.
E - Mail sent regarding complaint.
too noisy--- rooms directly giving to sportsfields with a lot of noise. vibrating waterpump to serve 1st floor bathrooms, almost constantly "buzzing"
Location is good for its communication links to London. Dining experience was good, as was the Bar service. The general condition of the interior of the hotel is ' tired ' and could do with a make over. Some of the staff need to work on their ' people skill's ' and smile alittle more often. I booked two rooms for my family. After checking in and being issued with the key cards, we found one of the rooms was still being lived in by another occupant. ( All their personal property, clothes, valuables and lap-top computer still in the room. ) Very poor security. We had to return to reception to organise another room, which was subsiquently on a different floor. Overall very poor value for money considering my final bill. ( The equivilant of a week in Spain.!. )
Reception staff were friendly and help out on a couple of occaisions when i needed. A bit out of the way from shopping centre / train stations and airport, with no transport to either. Taxi's were required for every situation.
Very convenient to the venue we attended No
cleanliness of room very rude bar staff and a memeber of reception staff
Practical and ease of access as a business traveller Rm. 435: Hot; noisy outside until 10pm with 5-a-side football 'slamming' into the wall and lots of shouting/swearing; no soap; jacuzzi bath u/s, some lights u/s; overall lighting dim; room appeared 'worn' but clean.; could not access room initially with allocated room card - irritating
Good reception. My room was upgraded to a suite for no extra charge. Shower water was only tepid. Could not get to normal temperature
very courteous staff and nice facilities distance from town
Lovely comfy beds!!! Shower area was quite dated and not ad clean as I hoped for the £57 we had paid
Sapcious comfortable room but couldn't regulate heat No heating in bathroom
it was very comfortable food was good parking was excellent, its location to london with transport was excellent. will be staying there on all the rest of my business visits. did not have a enough time to relax and enjoy hotel
spacious room Room was cold on arrival and heating hard to adjust, it was a a/c unit and noisy on heating fan setting
I was very impressed with the decor and the rooms. I also loved the views and the breakfast was great. I can't think of anything I didn't like - and I work for a hotel chain!
pleasent stay kind and attentive staff
Our stay although for only one night was perfect for our occasion, the staff was very great, and the setting was perfect.
The service of the staff, quality of the food and the location were all very good
Very nice building and setting No Wi-Fi in the rooms
It is a beautiful hotel, the staff were helpful, and the room clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. The service at dinner was exceptionally slow, we had to remind waiters of items we ordered.
food takes too long
Convenience.Location. Size of Room, lack of storage eg drawers
Clean bathroom terrible service - when we got there no one was around to let us in the car park so waitied about 15 mins. At check in no info was given about check out or breakfast time and also did not inform me about the pin code we needed to leave the car park!!! Lack of information!!
The comfort and cleanliness of the bedrooms I think the hot breakfast could be a little more better cooked and immaginative
The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. I had no trouble with having to kept medication in their fridge and freezer blocks in the freezer. The 'hot' selection at breakfast was cold and there could have been more selection in the hot range e.g. tomatoes, baked beans.
Excellent hotel. Clean and basic. Excellent value for money.
We supposed better service 3 persons room was not for 3 adults. 1 person didn´t have sufficient place on bed.
a good buffet breakfast
the bed had a heavy night.
Room only had been set up for one person and when i rang down to ask for a mug so my partner could have a cup of coffee, which was also limited, i was told to go to reception to get one. Check in was slow as receptionist was also serving at the bar and we had to wait a while to check in. Car parking was very limited and this is not advertised on the description of the hotel.
Nothing. The whole experience was dire. The evening food (curry and rice) was amongst the most disgusting, overpriced rubbish I have ever had.
The fact that the children could have their breakfast in their room with a tiny service charge.The bed was very comfortable That we were only there for one night!
the location is superb with lovely grounds backing onto a park and a wealth of ancient roman remains. The hotel buiding itself is a wonderful example of Georgian architecture. The cuisine is excellent but expensive. a party consisting of a high number of young children that monopolised the bar and lounge areas.
staff were friendly, nice breakfast. food and drink are very over priced (roughly £30 for a main). Small portions, and cold! i stayed in one of the best rooms in the hotel, and the bedspread was heavily soiled. tv stations not all working. as people are eating their expensive dinners, the hotel wedding co-ordinator likes to show prospective clients around the restaurant (pointing and standing next to tables discussing wedding plans). hotel was over priced by far. I have stayed in better, with bigger bedrooms for far cheaper! will not use again!
Excellent family atmousphere, good caring professionalism of staff, high quality dining and clean, well desigbed rooms Nothing at all
The staff are extremely nice, and the hotel is in a beautiful setting. We got upgraded as it was our honeymoon. Dinner in the restaurant was very delicious, but it was a bit expensive for the relatively small portions, and the music was a bit out of place/loud.
Pleasant enough The room was quite a journey with cases
Not much really,was good evening as it was a friends 30th birthday party but room was a twin instead of a double which I paid for and the twin beds being put together(which I did myself even though the manager said she would send somebody up to do) were uncomfortable Read above
Excellent room facilities Bar running out of offer wines and food
we have stayed here several times,always good some late night noise from guests
Bed Comfortable Wedding Party music continued until 1 A.M. This was not made clear when booking, I was not part of the wedding party. This meant that I was unable to sleep until after 1 A.M. The shower rail just fell down. No one was in the bathroom at the time. This rail had a very poor way of securing it to the wall. This meant that the second shower had to be taken without the use of the shower curtain.
Hotel staff very welcoming and polite, breakfast very good. Abit disappointed our room did not have a bath and bathrooms are very small.
Very efficient staff and quick check out
Efficiency of booking. Staff welcome, their appearance, general handling of arrival and departure and friendliness Difficulty in finding room from reception and length of walk up and down stairs through what seemed like a maze to get to the room. My car was parked virtually outside the room but to get to it required a 200 yard walk. It was easier to illegally open the fire door! The state of repair of fittings was below standard: bedside light dimmer fell off and the shower control fell off. Water from the shower cascaded over the floor through poor design.
The hotel was lovely with friendly staff and clean rooms. I found the bar rather expensive compared to others and as the hotel is out of town you are not really able to go to any other bars. Over all it was a nice stay. Bar prices
Hotel was fine but be aware that the local rainbow taxi firm ! Rainbow are used by the Hotel and are extremley pricey and appear to be operating at extortonate prices for tourists . A 4 min ride to Rothampsted Manor on the outskirts of Harpenden was charged at 15.00 out ward and then £22.50 return , and that was before midnight !!
location could have had wider choice for breakfast
The staff were always willing to help even if you had to wait some times, the breakfast could have been better as not much choice for a hot breakfast and the sausages were very fatty and tasted very fatty. price at times was very high, also no fridge in rooms to keep drinks cold or food fresh. No fridge in room, breakfast not much choice
A good base for our stay and the staff were very helpful Breakfast was pretty basic
Grab rail in shower
Friendly atmousphere and nice rooms
Good quality modern hotel - as per most Holiday Express hotels. Room was quiet, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Staff were helpful. Was granted a late checkout which enabled me to complete some important work on my trip. No hotel parking and nearest car park was full on first night of stay. Can park on road outside hotel but have to move car before 8.00am.
Excellent value for money. Very clean and tidy.
Very clean, good spacious rooms, friendly staff. An all round good experience No dedicated car parking. Had to pay and display for £3 a day. Not a lot but the car park was not well lit and of poor quality. We had to rush our breakfast to get to the car before paying another £3 or risk £100 fine
Very convenient from Watford Station which in turn only 15 mins frm Euston Easily visible for first time guests. New uncluttered and functional Convenient breakfast arrangements. Convenient for taxis at station. Allowed me to check in very early For people arriving by car travelling from south on main road a bit of a loop to get to hotel. Not a big issue. While not a bad spot a little far to walk to the town centre. Hardly a major issue for most guests
Very clean. Friendly staff. Enjoyable stay. Although I booked over the internet on arrival at the hotel there was no booking in my name. Fortunately there was a room available. This was despite the fact that I had a booking reference number. However the receptionist was extremely good and helped me out.
The hotel was clean and presentable... the rooms were spacious and well laid out. The Wifi was poor and the alleged health club didn;t exist in the hotel... it is a 10 minute walk away... the barman was more interested in his personal life on his mobile!
The quality and service surpassed their current rating, staff were very friendly and extremely helpful and high level of hospitality and pride of their work. The room was very spacious and passed the comfort of many "exclusive" hotels, extremely impressed.
location to the venue of my course the smell of stale smoke, the cost of evening meals
Lovely room that breakfast was served in car park was opposite and not very nice
Nice clean hotel,with friendly helpful staff.
the bed was comfy -The parking area was not clear- so we circled around the ring road many times before we could park! -The hotel smelt musky and damp -I paid for a superior room but clearly got a standard.
The restaurant was very good and food quality excellent. It is very shabby and needs refurbishment. The linen was old and the sheets had holes . The towels were thin and worn. Kettle in the room was worn and would not close when boiling.Floors creaked badly when walked upon.Poor quality for a 3* hotel. Would not stay there again.
Staff friendliness/promptness of lift Entrance lounge a bit spartan.
Location and cost Bit old fashioned decor
The staff were particularly helpful and friendly. The air con units were a bit noisy outside the room but they weren't a problem
