stayed in Holiday Inn express under Hotel Quarantine in UK after returning from India with my family. Hotel staff was very inconsiderate about the problems I was facing with my family in a single room. Hotel staff was hiding behind the Govt quarantine rules to make excuse for their poor service and pathetic food service. Even after many complaints nothing got improved. It seems like everyone from staff forgot the hospitality business and treating people like a criminal staying in their hotel to whom they can give any thing what they want. Hotel was serving food even without cutleries, showing their incompetence or in-human behavior towards guest staying in their hotel.

I am very disappointed about the way my reservation was handled. I was asked three times the reason why the booking was made. In all occasions I stated that I booked the accommodation for essential reasons, i.e. work reason. Yet, someone called me on the 23rd February to ask again. At that point I got annoyed by lack of communication and had no choice but to cancel because this is not the type of service I expect. The lady over the phone? "Alright,I cancel it". No apologies, properack of customer service. I am glad that we will stay there. Am I not a paying customer? How do you want me to prove that I am travelling for essential reasons? Do you also want know how many times I go to the toilet? Very disappointed

I needed an overnight stay due to a house move, and the Holiday Inn Express London Luton Airport was perfect for my needs. Clean, comfortable and nice food. The bed was so comfy, I didn't want to leave it. Service from the staff was great and I was particularly impressed with how well managed the food offerings are, with the current restrictions in place. Other hotels I looked at were not even providing food options, so I was pleasantly surprised to see a variety of menu options for lunch and dinner available (soup, paninis, burger, pasta, pizzas etc) that could be ordered and then taken to my room. The burger in particular was delicious! The breakfast offering well exceeded my expectations too, and the set us was great, particularly under the very restricted circumstances. Choice of bacon baps, sausage baps, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, croissants, jams, orange and apple juices, hot drinks etc. I was given cutlery and a bag to place my goodies in which I could then enjoy in my room. Thank you to all the staff for a very pleasant stay during a stressful time!

Over the last 15 years I have stayed at this hotel hundreds of times and as always been good. A few years ago in came a new Manager who had her own ideas and change was in the air, sadly not for the best. I felt the staff was completely de motivated, standards had dropped in customer service (the attrition rate on front desk was sky high) and the Manager raising her voice to staff on Reception in front of me was the final straw. After that I decided to stay else where, however I was told in around March this year there had been a change of Manager here and good service had returned. I then decided to to give it a go, since then I have stayed here many times since my return and held back on writing a review, in case it was too good to be true. I can confirm each time I arrive all the staff make me extremely welcome and staff always smile and go out of the way to assist with any queries I have. This against the back drop of Covid 19 when everyone is pretty fed up, tells me that Lorraine the Manager is definitely having an impact on this hotel. My last stay was on 13.12.20 and again as I walked through the door Page and the "Big fellow" (sorry forgot his name) made me extremely welcome. Rooms was spotless and breakfast was fine. Thanks for another great stay and look forward to seeing you again.
