Lovely place to meet with friends especially on a summer evening. Tapas menu is excellent and food of very good standard although our bill was incorrect 3 times and deserts are over priced. Bar service needs attention I waited 20 mins for a pimms and lemonade didn't bother with a second one as didn't want the lengthy wait. Location will... More

My friends organised a baby shower for me at the Leaside. We were offered our own private function room and had access to the veranda as it was a lovely sunny day. The food was really lovely and everyone was fed and impressed. Staff are really friendly and I would definitely use and recommend the Leaside for any other functions... More

Spent our wedding night here in one of the Suites - Room 106. Fantastic stay. The Room was lovely - and jumping in the Jacuzzi at the end of the day with a cold bottle of Champagne was perfect! Staff were excellent and so was the breakfast. A lovely patio area out the front to eat out or just have... More

On arrival we were given an upgrade from a standard double to lovely apartment suite with a large lounge, spa bath ( in addition to the en-suite bathroom) and air conditioning. It was a beautiful and warm summer's day and we were in Luton for our daughter's graduation. After the ceremony we decided to eat in the hotel and food... More

Friendly and accomodating staff, spacious rooms, good breakfast, served by a lovely and very efficient lady, a rare but welcome combination. The big terrace is a perfect place for drinks with friends. The airco was a welcome surprise.

If you really have to stay in Luton then this hotel must have the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. I arrived Sunday night with a noisy wedding reception in full swing, but the receptionist explained they had put me in a quiet room and she was right - from the room I could hear nothing. I needed to access... More

Can't help but like this place. Clean, friendly and always willing to help. STAY HERE IF YOU CAN. Considering other hotels in the area, which I have stayed in, this one is the best of the lot. Good food, drinks, rooms and a very good landlord. Sweet!
