Lacks attention to detail !!

Sadly, this hotel seems to be gradually getting worse everytime I go. This time, some strange decisons seem to have been made - especially to the catering options. Firstly, I opted for the 10oz Steak, but was put off by it coming on a chopping board. This may be trendy in certain places - but not for steak - how would ever want that. The peppercorn sauce was going to go everywhere, its just not right so I asked for a plate, but then had the smallest plate to transfer it across to and it instantly lost its appeal as a meal - and looked like a mountain of food I had piled on at a buffet. When a meal cost 22.50 - please take attention to the way it is served - it was a shame as the steak was cooked really nice - but that just lost its appeal. Why on a chopping board ? Then for breakfast the usual off menu choices (eggs benedict, etc are removed). Why ? Again - the staff were excellent - but why reduce the options. Also, the pool is increasing becoming a non enjoyable experience. Does anyone ever empty the towels in there. By 7pm there is a mountain of dirty towels, and every bench is strewn with used towels and general rubbish. I admit this is the fault of customers not respecting others, but it also seems noone ever bothers to care for the well being of the facilities either. It is such a shame as the pool/sauna/steam room are top class - it is just the site you are greeted with on arrival/leaving that disappoints.

Good location, bad rooms

The location of this hotel was perfect for the warner brothers studio tour, there were restaurants nearby and only 10mins drive to the studios. However the actual hotel was poor, the room was dirty, the carpet ripped in several places, scuffs on the chair, toilet seat was stained yellow, stains around the plug holes of the bath and sink, and certain bodily hairs found! Would not recommend a stay here and we paid to have a privilege room, very let down since we have stayed in hotels half the price that were 10 times better! Pictures are misleading as to the state of this hotel.

Hotel staff was quite ineffcient.

Hotel staff was quite ineffcient. I booked a nonsmoking room. When I reached there I was put in a smoking room - so making me shift my whole luggage from one room to other at midnight. Secondly on 3RD day they said I have to pay for the breakfast although I have already given them the All inclusive Voucher and had breakfast without any problems the day before. With great difficulty I persuaded them to communicate with me later with a copy of the voucher. Thirdly on arrival I had requested an express tranfer as I have to attend a meeeting at 8.00 A.M but was not sent any confirmation of checkout. In addition the problem at the breakfast delayed by appointment for 30 minutes in the morning.

A good, standard type, modern

A good, standard type, modern hotel in the Watford area. Car needed but it is very conveniently located for M1 and M25. Plenty of car parking. Sports facilities excellent. Food good and at a reasonable price. Price about average for this type of hotel in this area.
