Hotel was clean and staff friendly. We ate in the restuarant and food was good and plentiful. Our only complaint was that our room was at the front overlooking The Bedford Road and car park. Traffic was noisy but worse was the freight trains going through the night. We thought our window was open but on inspection found that they...

We booked this as a treat having read the reviews that this was No 1 hotel on Trip Advisor. We were given room 101 and although it was adequate I would not call it superior. The only heating in the bathroom was the towel rail which was little comfort given the outdoor chill coming in through the wooden "door" and...

Had a 2 night stay in this hotel to visit in the area, we were given room 101 in which we thought was excellent, spacious and comfortable. We dined in the restaurant and had steaks which were amazing, Nicola our waitress was very friendly, attentive and fun. Breakfast was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

I visit this Hotel every week and all the staff are friendly, very helpful adding to a pleasant atmosphere. The Pizzas are absolutely gorgeous and they are a generous size. The Tapas menu is extensive and every dish delicious. Well done Leaside

Stayed here just the one night for business in Luton. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the garden terrace which I didn't expect for a hotel in the middle of a town. I was greeted by very pleasant staff, nothing was too much trouble. Nice clean comfortable room. Breakfast was excellent, none of the usual buffet style as...

I booked a discounted room on Booking.com and, unexpectedly, received a huge room, full of comfort, including a Jacuzzi! The restaurant was excellent and served a perfectly cooked meat with tasty onions and chips. Breakfast was absolutely outstanding! The staff even prepared a take-away meal for me as I had to take my flight really early in the morning. I...
