On the 18th July, a busy Friday night my friend had organised a last minute 21st with the hotel and they did their very best to accommodate late arrivals, change of numbers and at times confusion around an evening with two other events. The staff managed it calmly and professionally with a smile on their faces providing us with service... More

I recently held my wedding reception at the Leaside, and stayed overnight. The experience was wonderful. In particular, the event organiser, Janine, made arranging everything as simple as I could hope for. She had a "can do" attitude, discussed with me what we wanted from the reception, and offered elegant solutions when I worried that things might get complicated. The... More

We stayed at the Leaside while my boyfriend and I were attending Sonisphere festival at Knebworth. We were mainly using the hotel as a base as we're not too keen on festival camping! Perfect location for our trip, easily accessible from the motorway and feels very safe as it was all within a gated area. Good car parking facilities. We... More

Nice clean hotel, really enjoyed my stay, my only input is the need for a concierge to help customers with luggage or heavy luggage considering they do not have a lift in the hotel. Also they can as well plan to provide a solution for the insects that bites which i believe the flowers in the location and a bit... More

I was invited to meet a friend who I had not seen for years to the Tapas restaurant at the Leaside Hotel the girl behind the bar was more interested in clearing the bar of glasses than serving us and the menu for Tapas is diabolical. I live in Spain and what was on offer did not even come close... More

My husband and I stayed here in May for a few days. We were greeted with a warm welcome and taken to our room. Narrow staircase, no elevator, but that was fine since I had my husband to carry the luggage! The room was clean with a small bathroom. We had large pieces of luggage since we were doing quite...

We had a great meal from the tapas menu. Really tasty. We would recommend the mussels. Lovely welcoming staff. We sat out on the pretty patio before going into our meal. They were happy to help with my daughters 21st birthday cake. A great evening. Definetly worth a visit.
