Hello stephanmelchior, Thank you for leaving us your review and for us a part of your trip here in Hemel Hempstead. We are grateful that you chose the Holiday Inn to host your trip. As always, we wanted nothing more but to ensure your experience turn as positive as possible. It made me smile that we were able to give you just that starting from our easy check-in, our suitable rooms, and to our ideal location. Thanks for recognizing these, stephanmelchior. I hoped to have made it this way all-throughout, but I'm sorry it turned to be a different story with the bathroom and some issues with the parking. I understand how this made you feel, stephanmelchior. I'm sorry that this stay didn't go as perfectly as planned. Don't worry, I took the necessary steps to ensure our management gets to read your post and be discussed amongst all concerned staff. We are always on the lookout for ways to make your experience memorable. Reviews such as this goes a long way in identifying areas where we can improve. We may not have gotten off the right foot but I'm positive to make it better for your next stay. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. Best regards, Frank A. Case Manager IHGService

We didn't use it as a bed, but it was a full 2 seater, so I'm sure it would have been fine for the children when opened.

"There was a problem with traffic noise if you open your window, kept shut its fine"
"Ask for a room on the canal side of the hotel so you're away from the railway line."
"Our first room was an adapted and was good but near the road. We moved across the corridor which was quieter and had a sofa."
"1st floor (not ground floor),near hotel facilities, we didn't get disturbed by bar noise."
"If you want a king size bed; check before you book that there is one in the room"
