Travelling regularly for business over a couple of decades, I feel like I've seen almost every side of the hotel business. Upon arriving in Luton having never stayed in the town itself before, I was very apprehensive about what was in store. I passed a number of hotels that left much to be desired and I grew increasingly apprehensive about... More

Good quality, authentic and delicious tapas with excellent service from friendly and obliging staff. The sangria is not bad either! very good value for money too. The menu is varied, and I can certainly recommend the gambas pil pil and the calamari served with fried potatoes with onions, and warm fresh pitta breads with dips, cheesy pies and mushrooms are...

The service is excellent, very friendly with a real eagerness to please from all of the staff that I encountered. The restaurant tapas menu is also unusual but really good quality, authentic and tasty. Sky sports in the bar area too. The rooms were a change from premier inns and there is secure parking. Reasonable value and would definitely stay... More

We had a family party here on Friday night with live entertainment. The venue was perfect - so much atmosphere and the food - served outside on the stunning terrace from a gazebo was absolutely wonderful, ranging from Thai green curry, chilli etc to a BBQ. We stayed for 2 nights and the room was lovely as was the food... More

The Leaside Hotel was a pleasant surprise, made to feel most welcome and treated royally. The family run business is a great place to stay for one night or several. Decent rooms, good food and you can relax in this old style boutique hotel in the heart of Luton

A very pleasant Hotel - The staff were great and very helpful. The rooms were clean. The bathrooms were a little small - but understandable when you take into account the age and history of the building. Wifi is a problem in some rooms - but again understandable due to the structure of the building - but easily overcome by... More

In my opinion this hotel has been considerably over-rated by recent reviewers. This is a reasonable place to stay for a night, but far from excellent. In its favor, the hotel is clean, the staff is both friendly and helpful, the bed is comfortable, and the value is good. The downsides are: traffic noise from the busy road outside, from... More

We stayed there for a 2 night. Nice hotel. Our rooms was big enough, clean and air conditioned. Very comfy bed. Friendly staff and tasty breakfast. Only minus was bathroom, quite small and needs to be refurbish a bit. Except that it's great place to stay for a weekends.
