Awful hotel. Room was the pits! Didn't even bother staying here. Smell was appalling, Bathroom was dirty, Bed wasn't even made properly, Carpets disgustingly dirty. I honestly cannot say enough how bad this place is.

The guy behind the desk, Sammy, was very pleasant. The room wasn't too clean but was ok. Stains on carpets etc. The shower wasn't very good, the bd was clean and comfy, the room was small - but it was very cheap . The police coming at 2am to arrest the gy next door to me woke me so didn't...

The Elstree Inn is notable for its dirt, squalor & dilapidation. Desperately in need of a refurb, the only plus is that it's manned by friendly staff. Of particular note was the plug sealed by gaffer tape...then there was the hot tap which couldn't be used as it threatened to detach itself if turned & the filthy shower tray. I...

The hotel seems very run down and In desperate need of a refurb. The room I stayed in was also the same and all just seemed dirty. The bed sheets were clean, carpet stained and bathroom was like a tiny wet room with a poor shower. The tv worked. To activate the shower was an interesting process which was hot...

Absolute hell, nice staff but the worst experience of my life. Never again, had no choice but to stay as away on work however absolutely shocking.

We booked this hotel on a budget, but would recommend paying the extra for another hotel nearby. The bathroom and cups were dirty, the windowsill needed a good dust and the whole room is in desperate need of new carpet. Definitely not worth the £71 we paid. The only decent thing was the comfortable bed. We won't be staying again

We booked twos rooms. All other local hotels were double in cost. Yes the rooms are a bit dated but the staff were very friendly. And this is a small independent. You want cheap and that's what you get. Nice size telly and above a wethersponns for breakfasts and dinners. All good in my book.

We booked this hotel through Booking.com and unfortunately the picture on the website was nothing like the room we paid for!! The room we were allocated to was dirty and cramped - i've never stayed anywhere so bad!! Unfortunately we booked for two nights, we would have walked out but had no more funds to pay for better accommodation.On booking...
