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.

Needed somewhere to stay after missing flight (doh!). Just needed a room more than anything else but wasn't expecting such a nice place and only £70 for a twin room including an excellent breakfast with quality sausages! Mmm mmmm would defo stay here again if I had to stay in Luton.

A hidden gem in the centre of Luton. Attended a friends 50th Birthday Party - a great place, very helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. The presentation of the buffet food was brilliant & even better, tasted delicious. The bedroom was lovely & air conditioned, bed very comfy and all very clean. The breakfast the next morning was...

I was staying in this this hotel for one night, whilst at the same time attending a dear friends 50th Birthday party in the function room and garden. The hotel itself is a beautiful building, ooozing charm and the second you are within the gates, you forget you are in the centre of Luton. The staff - absolutely perfect, totally... More

I've just spent a week at the Leaside and can honestly say that I hadn't expected to find such a gem of a hotel given the reasonable price of the accommodation. The Leaside offers clean, nicely presented rooms with comfortable beds, free wi-fi and air-conditioning - a great bonus with the temperatures we're currently experiencing. The sun terrace is really... More

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
