Nice hotel with very helpful staff, who welcomed two of our family visiting from The Ukraine for a funeral and also provided refreshments for after the service. Also handy for rail links and the airport. The car park is a bit small for 'events' but there is a public car park two minutes walk away.

We arrived at Luton airport in the late evening, and decided when planning our itinerary that we'd stay near the airport that night and then go to London in the morning. The ratings of hotels near Luton airport were not amazing, and the prices were pretty high, so we thought this sounded OK. It is a bit of a walk...

We hired the Leaside for a family party & really cannot fault the team & service. Great food, incredibly accommodating, taking care of party arrangements & very reasonable room rate for our party guests wanting to stay. So many of our party guests have commented on how lovely the venue is and those that stayed in rooms couldn't fault the...

We love this fabulous boutique hotel. Have used it many times and not had the same room twice! Each room is very stylish and individually decorated. We use it as a transit hotel but would love to stay longer to take advantage of the lovely restaurant. The steak on a stone is to die for, not to mention the churros....

I stayed here for two night because my daughter was holding her engagement party here. The staff were very friendly. The building was beautiful with lots of original Victorian features. The room had a gorgeous, toom for two style bath. The bed was comfy and the breakfast was tasty. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I...

We were only here for an overnight stay on our way to Luton airport. The service was great - lovely, friendly staff. Our room was very comfortable & had a spacious ensuite. The atmosphere at the hotel was lovely too. We had to leave just after 4am to get to the airport for our flight & the receptionist had organised...

I went here with two friends last night. Walking in it was very quiet, normally alarm bells ring that it's not going to be good but it made the night even better. Nicola served us, she was amazing! She gave advice on what to have (great advice!!) and took the time to thoroughly explain the menu. All the food is...

I came here yesterday (20/10) whilst it was steak night. It was not my first time visiting the Leaside hotel, but it was the first time I had eaten there. The food was delicious and portion sizes were huge. The menu offers various different types of tapas so we were very spoilt for choice. Working in the hospitality industry myself...
