What a lovely hotel. Friendly staff and the evening meal is good. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is okay could be better. Opposite the train station. Highly recommended for a night or twos stay. The staff really made my stay that much better. Thank you.

Excellent parking availability. Super location. Easy check in. Staff were friendly. Lovely canal side walk.Rooms were clean and the shower was good. Breakfast was very good and a good choice. Restaurant was expensive for what you got on evening meal as local pub was busy and you had to book a table. Enjoyable stay.

Hol Inn Exp remains great value. Hemel is no different. Very clean hotel throughout, good free parking. Breakfast usual standard, hot and plentiful. Pubs, bars and restaurants very close by. Ideally situated minutes from M25. Definitely recommend for overnight or even longer.

We planned to be here for two nights on business, but it turned out to be three because of a storm bringing the rail network to a halt, as it does these days. So I can say that the shower in my 3rd floor room is better than the shower in the 1st floor room! Joking aside, excellent rooms, complete...

Excellent value for money. When we arrived at 10am after a 4 hour drive i wasn't expecting to be able to check in, but to my surprise our room was ready early.
