We stayed at this hotel as it was near to Luton Hoo where we were attending a function. Our room was adequate with very comfortable clean beds, but the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The shower leaked so we could not use it but there was a bath. The bathroom looked tired and could have done with a... More

Stayed here last night as I was working in the area for two days. I booked via their website on Sunday and submitted my debit card details for the £50.00 bill. On arrival, I was asked for payment again. When I suggested that I had payed when booking, I was told rather tersely that they wouldn't have taken payment at... More

Ate here with a business party mid week. A table for twelve was created instantly and with no fuss. Despite the name the value for money on the food was excellent to the point where I reluctantly had to leave some due to impressive portion size! Service was blunt but swift and attentive. Well done!

We had standard room with all stuff that we needed, maybe except lack of shower gel or shampoo. Despite of that the stay was confortable. Be carefull if you are light... More

We booked this hotel for 1 night before we flew from Luton airport. We paid £20 for the night. On the return flight the cost for 1 night stay was over £50 if I had paid this I would have certainly complained but as we only paid £20 like I say you get what you pay for. Good points: 10... More

Don't go to this hotel. Go to the Premier Inn just down the road. You know what you will get there. Stayed in room 35. Damp musky smell on entering. Bathroom door would not shut. My wife had a bath and when the plug was pulled the water went all over the floor. After a long journey we were too... More
