We stayed here for a wedding and I have to say my heart sank when we walked into the entrance - the windows (and there are a lot of them) were filthy and it stank of smoke (someone smokes a pipe!) if we had had a choice I would left straight away. However the rest of the hotel is very... More

From the outside this place looks rough, but the rooms were very tidy and very spacious. Would be good if using the airport, but for us it was a bit of a way to southend in a taxi (£10 each way) But as we were here for the Luton football match all hotels in town were booked. Had some beers... More

Our stay was originally booked for one night stay on Saturday, as we had really long journey we were already thinking that maybe we will talk to staff and see if... More

Park Inn overbooked despite us booking in December, moved us to Skylark. Upon arrival, we had to refuse two rooms because they were cigarette smoke filled and as one of the party is a child with Asthma, she began to cough as soon as she entered the room. The hotel quickly found us two other rooms (which wasn't hard valentines... More

I gave my credit details as asked for PAYMENT for our room but as we later found out on arrival that... More

Room basic but spotlessly clean. Bed really comfy and shower amazing. Room smelt damp and musty but perfect for overnight stay. Right on top of Saxon Hall where our function was. Not much atmosphere but good value for money.
