Went with wife for Lunch on a Monday. The Outside looked scruffy, needing some TLC, the surroundings were untidy with empty beer glasses thrown in plants outside front door! When we entered we hoped for better things.... However the interior was dark with tired furniture, dirty looking carpet, badly worn apholstery and the whole place had a dreadful smell of... More

It is definitely not a 5* hotel, but for £52.50 per night for 2 including breakfast. What the hell do you expect? The rooms were clean, the beds were very comfy, the TV was massive, the bathroom was clean (yes slight mould in-between tiles, like most peoples) the shower was brilliant. The staff were incredibly helpful, but massively overworked, which... More

Had to go out and buy a hairdryer, though it advertised having them on website. Broken drawers in room, but the worst of all was the en suite which was full of mould on the walls and furnished with stained towels. We expected basic for the price, but not this bad. Was also very noisy.

Thank lyndahawkes

Has to be the worse meal we've ever had and I've had some terrible meals. Lasagne was a flat oily skid on a plate. Nothing like the menu photo. The onion rings had no onion in them. Salad browned at the edges. Steak had an odd flavour. Basically disgusting!

Having to book at the last minute for a Hotel in Dunstable. I had little choice as most of the large chains and the airport were way out of the price range. I booked the Highwayman and it really is a budget hotel with very limited amenities. The Carpet in the room has holes and tears in it. The Furniture... More

Stayed here a few times but never again. Staff are rude and room is filthy. No soap and minimal coffee. I paid 50 quid for my room which is cheap but still doesn't mean my room has to be dirty with a cracked window. Full of drunk builders who are working away from home. Stay clear of this one

Needing an inexpensive room for the night before an appointment in central London the next morning the Highwayman looked decent enough. Checking other reviews I was not expecting much for the princely sum of £25, free parking was my main concern. Upon arrival the staff were friendly and efficient, the room was careworn but very clean, the bedding immaculate and... More

The hotel has seen better times and is in need of refurbishment but at the price it is very good value and the breakfast, being a Hungry Horse was amazing value for money. The staff were attentive and friendly which does make up for the tiredness of the building.

A very tiered room with a bathroom which was in need to some maintenance and cleaning. The room we stayed in was very noisy and every time some in another room opened a door or moved around it was like they were in the same room. The staff all seemed friendly and one positive thing was the food was very... More
