Having read some of the reviews i thought this would be a good hotel with great food, how wrong i was. Terrible food in the evening and staff that do not care their response was rude and not how i expect to be treated a s a customer. One positive was the breakfast which was really good and the morning... More

We arrived at the hotel quite late and found parking to be a little awkward. The lady who checked us in was incredibly up-beat and friendly, but the hotel was quite noise downstairs with an 80's disco/party. We had asked for a quiet room and we were allocated 201 which was quiet i.e. we could not hear the 80's at... More

My wife and I lived at the Leaside for nine weeks whilst between houses. The hotel building is an elegant red-brick Victorian villa, close to the centre of town. Paul and his staff - a wonderfully friendly, bubbly and helpful group of ladies - looked after us so well that it was a real wrench to leave. The room we... More

If the Leaside was only a tin shed in a swampy paddock, I would still rate it as 6 star based on the quality of staff alone. You will not find more friendly, competent and helpful people in any hotel, anywhere. The food was excellent, the ambience of this delightful old building, and the cosiness of the public areas, made... More

I stayed here with my husband for our wedding anniversary as we had got engaged here a few years ago. We were upgraded to the Courtyard Suite and found it a lovely, tastefully decorated suite with a jacuzzi bath behind a glass screen and a large comfortable bed. It was at the back of the hotel and a nice quiet... More

Location of this place is a bit off the beaten path to be fair, but it is worth to travel that bit out of town simply just for the food. I have eaten in some great restaurants in Spain, the Leaside in Luton could easily be up there in terms of fresh, flavorsome traditional Spanish food. The portions are hearty... More

All Staff were lovely,welcoming & helpful. The room we had (terrace room) was lovely. Had all the mod cons. The central bath was a lovely touch to the room. Clean and tidy. There was a function on in the evening but this did not spoil our stay what so ever,in fact it was a very nice atmosphere. Breakfast was lovely... More
