When you get to an hotel to check in, you want to be greeted by a receptionist and get to your room in a fairly short time. Alas this rarely happens. You arrive at the reception, no one there. You read the card which says, "Ring 216 for Receptionist". You ring and are told someone will be with you in... More

The bath/shower was so in need of decorating, worn dated, needs a complete over haul, like the bathroom shelf laying on floor. The check in procedure is much to be desired, pick the phone up call the bar, some one will come, eventually......................and when they do, take no notice of how much the bartender has drunk? The bar food area,... More

Went with a group of people for a sunday lunch. Very disappointing - food dry - looks like it had been left under a heated lamp. All the group got served at different times so three of us had finished our dinner so it wouldn't get cold and the rest hadn't been served. The same thing happened with the puddings... More

We stayed at the Highwayman for one night as it was close to our family's address in Dunstable. The price is very cheap, but don't expect any extras above what you pay for. The room and hotel itself is tired and some parts are "falling to pieces". The bed however was extremely comfortable, which is always a plus. The staff... More

Stayed here for one night, it was clean and tidy but i must say the bath/shower room was very dated need's a revamp other than that it's a great place. a good point is that it's next door to an hungry horse pub so not far to walk and good value too.

Spent a night here before flying out of Luton. Can safely say won't be visiting it again. Very dated, think it was 20 years ago bathroom had had an update. Room far from clean, lots of cobwebs around the window, furniture hadn't been moved just hoovered up to edge, so dust pattern around the sides. No soap in bathroom, bedding... More

We recently stayed at the Highwayman for 9 weeks whilst our house was having a refit. ( Originally booked for 4 weeks!) All the staff were friendly and helpful and willing to help with any requests.The room was basic but clean and food in the pub was good and reasonably priced. Breakfasts were great! Our thanks to Tobi and staff... More

My daughter and I stayed here for just one night and at £20 for the room, it was great. The room itself, no. 29, was adequate, beds comfortable and the bedding lovely and clean. The pillows are a bit thin but we coped. Only 2 coffees and 4 teas and no spoon. One socket was broken but there were plenty... More

I write this knowing the room rate for a double room was only £35 but I do expect a room to be clean. The window had mould on it which would easily have been removed with a damp cloth! The long mirror had a part of it missing at the bottom. There was a leak near the toilet so they... More

I arrived around 9pm to find plenty of parking and a very loud group outside the pub. I went into reception where two men (one receptionist, one bar staff) where having a conversation between them selves. I was quickly processed and given my keys (room 28). The hotel corridors are in need of an update and fire doors propped open... More
