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.

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!

Due to a delay we missed our connecting flight and had to stay over for a night. All airport hotels were sold out, so by a coincidence we ended up at Leaside. What luck! This place is so much nicer that an airport hotel. Lots of atmosphere, brilliant service and excellent breakfast. The trip to the hotel is less than... More

We arrived Saturday night at 10pm after a 5 hour drive, a party was in full swing which is fair enough but the music was so loud we couldn't hear the receptionist talking, we had to shout to each other, we booked a superior room number 101, which was ironic, the shower was a Dribble and no hand towels, a...

Five minutes from the airport in a taxi (approx £8) this friendly well run hotel is ideal for a couple of nights either side of your flights. Food was great tapas menu and they had every gin you could think of. Staff couldn't do enough for us, our room was large enough, clean and freshly decorated. Only minor complaint was... More
