Who doesn’t like a hotel stay with access to spa facilities?
I certainly do and that’s why a visit to The Village Hotel is a must!
The Village Hotel is located in Elstree – half a mile from the M1 motorway, a ten minute drive from Watford City Centre and 20 minutes from Bond Street via Stanmore Tube Station. Although The Village is accessible, it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of London living.

The rooms at The Village are bright, sleek and modern stocked with all the amenities you will need for your stay here – free WiFi, a flat-screen TV, ironing board and tea/coffee making facilities, to name a few. There is also a full-length mirror in all rooms for those who (like me) like to take a selfie or two.

My favourite part of my stay at The Village was the spa. While my other half made full use of the gym, I did the same with the spa facilities. These consist of an indoor swimming pool, large jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
Due to my chronic illness (CFS/M.E), I have regular bouts of severe all-over body pains which are relieved and lessened by heat and hydro-therapeutic facilities; which include the use of a jacuzzi. I was shocked by how large the jacuzzi at The Village is – it can easily fit 10 adults comfortably. My half an hour stint in it really relaxed and eased my aches and pains.

The pool facilities at The Village are incredibly clean, hygenic and well-kept, (my OCD cleanliness was very satisfied). The sauna and steam room are also nice touches. A short visit to each is a nice way to finish off your time spent in the pool and jacuzzi.
The facilities at The Village do not stop there. There are two on-site dining options; Bucca di Beppo (Italian) and The Public House (pub-style grub). For my coffee lovers, the Starbucks located in the reception area of The Village is the best way to start your morning.

I had everything I could possibly need during my stay at The Village. The spa kept me busy in the afternoon, I ate dinner at Bucca di Beppo (which I recommend) in the evening and had a cooked breakfast in the morning. I even had time to get a Starbucks before checkout – score!
I definitely received the relaxing break I was looking for while at The Village.
All in all, if your looking for a reasonably priced hotel where you can have access to great spa facilites, a choice of dining options at your fingertips, while only being 20 minutes tube ride away from the City – The Village Hotel is the place for you!
