Superb hotel in pleasant surroundings very close to the town centre. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Spent the afternoon waiting to check in on the comfortable terrace. The room was clean and the air conditioning quiet and effective. Cannot really fault anything.

I visited the Leaside yesterday with friends for drinks and dinner. We hadn't visited before but we knew they held a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence so decided to give it a go. As soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right decision, the car park was gated which meant we could park safely and the lovely flowers... More

She advised us we had been upgraded but when we arrived in the room we were both amazed. The room had a jacuzzi and separate bedroom and was perfect in every way.We went downstairs for a... More

The staff are extremely welcoming, and friendly, and go out of their way to personalise your visit and make sure your stay is a very pleasant one. We were a party... More

I was surprised in a positive way when I arrived at Leaside, as it is a really nice little hotel with friendly and service minded staff. Simple, clean and fully equipped rooms. Fabulous English breakfast cooked to order. Highly recommended and really great value for money!

We needed somewhere to stay before a flight from Luton the following day. I rang this hotel direct as we wished for special accomodation (jacuzzi) etc. and this was I believe the only room with this facility. We found the hotel easy to find although you have to follow a route behind the hotel to enter. The staff were very... More

We booked last minute. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. We were upgraded and our room was fantastic, clean and beautifully furnished with the bath in the room! We had the tapas menu which was one of the best tapas we have ever had and very reasonable. Breakfast was good. The only negative was it was quite noisy at... More

We had a christening reception at the Leaside and many of our party stayed in the rooms there. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning! The building has so much character and the atmosphere was great. The staff were extremely nice and very hospitable. The food was amazing. We had a buffet and it was gone very quick. My hotel room...
