REVIEW: Holiday Inn Hemel Hempstead M1 J8


Holiday Inn Hemel Hempstead M1 J8 is situated almost next to the M1 motorway (as you would expect from its title!) and is within an easy driving distance of London Luton Airport and London Stansted Airport. As an aside, although both those airports have ‘London’ in their title, they’re not actually in London, they’re both north of (and outside of) the city.

This particular hotel was very busy upon arrival and it was very popular with families away for the weekend. Check-in was smooth and painless, helped by an incredibly friendly front desk staff member.

You get free parking if you drive to the hotel, all you have to do is type in your car registration plate into the tablet on the front desk and you’re all set.

The corridors of the hotel definitely need a makeover as they’re rather dark and old fashioned, but the rooms themselves are quite smart, modern and clean.

For this stay it was a King Room which had a very comfortable bed and the bedding felt very premium.

While in the interests of keeping it a fair review, it’s difficult to say anything negative at all about this hotel as the staff were friendly, the room tidy, parking was free and it was very easy to find.

This hotel is highly recommended after a really good night’s stay!
