Room is tired, feels very travelodgesc. Only thing it has over a travelodge room is the AC - which doesn't really work. No biscuits or water as you normally get in a HI hotel. Restaurant is rubbish. Selection is poor. When ours arrived the terrine wasn't a terrine and the chicken wings were cold - they were taken back to...

Conveniently situated for Elstree and Borehamwood. Difficult to find the entrance in the dark. Entrance to car park is nearest to roundabout. The room was comfortable but needed an update. The decor looked a little old. It was not torn but looked dirty. The net curtains needed a good wash. I cannot fault the staff, who were very pleasant. The...

I stayed here for 3 nights with work. It's definitely a hotel that suits the travelling worker. Room was functional but very dated. House keeping team did a great job. Onsite gym got used a few times, for me it would have been better opening at 6 rather than 6.30am, but I got a few 30 min jogs in instead...
