The Marlowes Shopping Centre, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1DX, UK – 0345 740 4404

Good but not enough staff at times


225, The Marlowes Shopping Centre, 227 Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1BL, UK – 0345 600 3934

Always helpful at the hemel branch. Recently called the customer service as an ATM from Metro had taken £60 from my card but didn't give me the money and they were super helpful. Money was back in my account within 48 hours. Great service thank you

I rang up with a query and at first was told that what I thought should happen does not happen anymore. I did have a feeling I was correct, the member of staff said she would check and get back to me. This she did in a short time and she said that what I had said was was current banking information and she thought legislation was different. She apologized and was incredibly polite and helpful. It so refreshing not to be made out to feel like you are in the wrong and even better to get an apology for it. I do wish more companies/banks would be so honest. Well done Halifax.

Very good rates, very good staff and very professional overall

Leverstock Green Dental Practice

17, Village Centre, Leverstock Green Way, Hemel Hempstead HP3 8QG, UK – 01442 213836

I've really struggled to find a dentist who I felt comfortable with, and thank god I found leverstock green dental. From when I stepped through the door, I was dealt with in a professional and caring manner and it's clear this is a family friendly practice. I've just had new braces fitted (invisalign) and was really nervous at first, but the lady dentist filled me with confidence and I could not be happier.

Boxmoor House Dental Practice

451 London Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP3 9BE, UK – 01442 253253

Like most people, I really don't enjoy going to the dentist but todays check up and referral by Dr Rishika made it as painless as possible - in fact I would go as far as saying Dr Rishika is the the best dentist I have ever had. I still have quite a bit of dental work to go but feel comfortable I will be in very good hands during this process. Highly recommended.

Professional, clean and friendly. The advice and treatment i've been given has always been appropriate and necessary. I'm so pleased I found this surgery. I wouldn't go anywhere else now.

Nap Surgery

The Nap, Kings Langley WD4 8ET, UK – 01923 261035

Kind staff and caring doctors, however i have never been seen on time.. theres always a long wait.. on average up to an hour in my experience.

Some fabulous and very caring staff.

Lincoln House Surgery

163 London Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP3 9SQ, UK – 01442 254366

I moved from Parkwood drive and so far very impressed with the care I’ve received. A big step up from Parkwood. Was however very disappointed that the receptionists complain about patients in an office with the door open where we can all hear them. Whilst it’s not been about me to my knowledge and some of the things they say are shocking, it really isn’t something to moan about to every Tom Dick and Harry. Appointments always delayed by around 10mins, sometimes up to 1 hr but the doctors actually help you so I don’t mind waiting.

Frequent visits

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Hemel Hempstead Hospital

Hillfield Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP2 4AD, UK – 01442 213141

Just had an appointment at Hemel Hempstead Hospital in their Physiotherapy Department (2:50pm on 21st May) It was on time and the lady who looked after me was excellent. Very helpful and encouraging.

Hemel Hospital is a fantastic hospital filled with friendly and kind staff. Myself and my pregnant wife have recently visited Hemel hospital for a scan and a meeting with a consultant and the reception staff were fantastically friendly and knowledgeable and the doctors also met our expectations of being very efficient and explaining everything clearly and thoroughly as to the next steps. Would certainly rate this hospital over others in the West Herts region. (St Albans being the weakest)

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bovingdon


Jarmans Retail and Leisure Park, Jarman Way, Hemel Hempstead HP2 4JW, UK – 01442 249562

Been here a few times, generally love Nando’s, Visit various different branches at least twice a week! However today of all days had me thinking of my Nando’s experience all day long. Not because of the food as I’ve always been a big fan hence the loyalty. However 13/03/18 was the best experience I’ve ever had at any Nando’s branch in my hundreds of visits over the last 5 years. Jamie was an absolute pleasure, from the moment me and my partner walked through the door he put us in a booth and even told the guy at the till our table number. Brought our food over quickly and was very warm and welcoming, not that pushy annoying type of fake rubbish. Even ran over to say goodbye as I was leaving! Never really left a review for Nando’s before and trust me most experiences in terms of customer service are shocking. But this geezer deserves to receive a review or some for if recognition... Truly an asset to the business... Jamie you absolute LEGEND !!

Even though I don't eat chicken, I usually find it convenient to go to Nandos with friends because they always have good vegetarian options. The staff are always polite and helpful. There is usually a waiting period while the food is being prepared. I like the fact that you can see the food being prepared. I had a good experience here. The prices usually depend on what you order. It is a great place to take a group of people. However, I would suggest that you book in advance so you can secure a table. The bottomless drinks are excellent. Maybe they should offer eat all you want on certain days or even eat as much chips as you want.

Chiang Mai Cottage

80 High St, Hemel Hempstead HP1 3AQ, UK – 01442 254457

Nice place in old building with plenty of atmosphere. The starter was excellent with delicately fried prawns with sweet chili sauce. Main course red curry was not the best I had ever. Something in the way it was spiced or balanced did not match my taste. I sure others would feel differently. Quick and kind service adds to a good experience

Beautiful meal this evening. I came here on my own as I'm visiting for work purposes and I was made to feel very welcome, and the food was delicious. I asked for my penang curry to be quite spicy and they made it just right with fresh chillies. Great service, friendly faces and lovely food. Thank You!

BoxMOOr Steakhouse

10 St John's Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1JR, UK – 01442 264846

Don't be put off by the outside! Beautiful food, attentive and considerate service. Not to invasive. Food was gorgeous we had kangaroo and ribs for starter. Ribyeye for main. My partner is South African so knows good meat! Our new date night place!

Very nice place. As a group we had a starter meat platter, an exotic meat selection and a desert. It was all very nice, my favorite meats was the wild boar, veal and venison. Good portions, good quality and friendly staff.

Nursery and Preschools

Cherry Tree Day Nursery and Preschool (Hemel Hempstead)

15 Horselers, Hemel Hempstead HP3 9UH, UK – 01442 247237

My son goes to this nursery. It is bilingual and therefore it get exposed to Spanish and English. As we don’t eat meat and the nursery didn’t have vegetarians kids before, they adapted their menu in order to accommodate our requirements. Furthermore they accepted our feedback about it and changed it accordingly. The people are very nice and professional. Furthermore my son gets plenty of hugs.

I am very satisfied with all the staff! but the most important thing is that my daughter is very happy there! Thank you all

Chambersbury Primary School

Hill Common, Hemel Hempstead HP3 8JH, UK – 01442 256435

When I was little I went here. For dessert the dinner ladies would sometimes make a millionaire short bread, but instead of caramel it had a white, slightly minty stuff in the middle. It was the best thing ever and I've spent most of my adult life trying to find it. Only to fail. Thing of legends that shortbread.

Chambersbury is amazing!:-)
