We spent last Friday night at The Leaside. We'd booked a standard room but staff kindly upgraded us. We found the room was clean and comfortable, though my 6'2" husband couldn't stretch out his legs in the sleigh-style bed!

Love staying here. Everything is superb, from the rooms to the staff and the tasty menu. Nothing is too much for the staff and splash out a bit for the luxury rooms. Well worth it. Not far from Luton train station and close enough to the airport for a stopover. Enjoy.

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...
