This is a very good, independent hotel within easy walking distance of Luton Railway Station. Though its given address is New Bedford Road, guests in cars are advised to approach it along nearby Villa Road which leads off Old Bedford Road. Our room (Room 108) was very pleasant and well-presented. The double bed was large and comfortable with excellent quality... More

We decided to stay in the hotel for dinner and were really pleased that we did, the service was very good, very helpful and friendly. The food was very good, for my wife she found the vegetarian...

We live locally but had not visited the Leaside for quite a while, certainly not since the changes to dining. We drove past and had seen the advertising for tapas. I rang through and booked a table for 4 of us, early on a Saturday. A couple were a bit sceptical, but we went anyway and were so pleasantly surprised.... More

Our family had lunch at the Leaside on Mothering Sunday. Paul, Yvonne and Jeannie did a wonderful job from putting on an excellent tapas meal to providing entertainment for the children. We were able to relax outside on the terrace with drinks before going into eat. The variety of tapas was wonderful and we all had plenty to eat. The... More

We had a reception for 150 people at the Leaside after our father's funeral. The owner, manager and staff were truly outstanding. The food was exceptionally good and plentiful and the surroundings and atmosphere was perfect. But, most of all, everyone was friendly and the staff could not do enough to ensure that this sad occasion was a very memorable... More

The hotel is 2 minutes drive from the airport but you are still in the center of Luton city Breakfast was ok, rooms are HUGH and clean. TV is so tiny and small you can't watch it :( The best thing about this hotel is the lcoation

I was planning to stay here for 4 nights but had to move as it was impossible to sleep. Rooms are old and out of date along with the beds. Very uncomfortable. Creaky floor boards in the hall ways as well. If you had to stay here then perhaps 1 night only. There was also a damp smell in the... More

This is a nice Victorian Villa that has been converted into a hotel some time back. It is well located - just half a mile away from The Mall, which is the centre of Luton town. You need to climb the steps up from New Bedford Road which can be a slight bother if you are a traveller with heavy... More
