Our room was a little tired, would be better if it had a makeover, but it was clean .... and quiet. There was only one glass in the bathroom but the room was .... a double! As we were only staying one night, ti was adequate. We had read some of the reviews and weren't expecting a five star so... More

Yes the Highwayman is a little tired and in need of a make over, but the bed was clean and comfortable, the shower was powerful and refreshing with plenty of hot water. It is ideal for an overnight stop before a flight from Luton.

When you look at the website for The Highwayman ignore it all!! Room was dirty, toilet leaked and when we informed staff we were given towels to mop up water rather than the problem be resolved. Bathroom was disgusting, seal on bath non existent, tiles falling off, lime scale everywhere and just generally filthy. Furniture so antiquated and floorboards that... More

After booking at The Highwayman and seeing the lovely rooms on their own site, I was totally disappointed when I read the reviews on Trip Advisor, my own fault for not checking first. But you do not expect such low standards of accommodation in any hotel. Decor poor, furniture poor, cleanliness sub standard. Leaking pipes in the bathroom, and dirty... More

This restaurant really needs to sort out its hygiene. Waitresses cleaned tables with a dirty cloth leaving tables sticky. The cutlery pot was filthy as were the menus and seats. Food was bland. Staff were overrun. No bottled coke on a Friday nite?

Worst hotel even for a low budget Booked 3 rooms and payed immediately after the booking. On arrival again need to pay the rooms because they didn't received the money? Proof of payments shown and they didn't believe us. The rooms were dirty, filthy and outdated. Electrical wiring coming out of the wall, rusty nails sticking out of closets. Fungus... More

The room was warm, the bed was comfy and clean and the pub and eating area was good. However there were several things that were not very good including: Creaking floorboards, Broken Windows, Small Rooms, Antiquated shower and full of Mould, Very noisy at night. Also frequently no-one was on the reception desk to ask questions and the hotel door... More

Our room was downstairs right next door to the bar, therefore our room was quite noisy especially in the early hours from the upstairs rooms. Upon checking in our toilet cistern ball valve was found to be flowing constantly, our window had a gap in it when closed, the room was quite clean. Breakfast wasn't poor.

I stayed recently at the hotel for 1 night, and 1 night was too long. I arrived and was given a twin room. When I got into my room I popped to the toilet and noticed that there was no soap. I then turned around and noticed that the bath was 1/3 full of dirty water, and that there was... More

The room above us eveytime they walk across the room every floorboard creaked. They were mantling about before 5am! We stayed for one night,... More
