The Chequers
Ranked #2 of 2 Streatley B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 18, 2009

We stayed at The Chequers for one night whilst visiting relatives in Luton, actually that is not strictly true, after spending ten minutes in the room we decided to leave and find alternative accommodation. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and polite lady who promptly showed us through a slightly messy but tolerable passage and up a flight of stairs to our room. First impressions were that the accommodation was quite old looking, after setting our bags down we started to notice the uncleanly state of the place, there was a large clump of ladies hair on the bathroom floor, rubbish in the bathroom plant pot on closer inspection the bath showed no signs of having been cleaned and the sink had filthy marks all over it (see pictures). The bedroom was no better, there were squashed horse flies all over the wall and ceiling as well as strange splat like stain marks on the walls (see pictures). The final straw came when I turned back the duvet to find a large brown stain on the sheets. We asked to leave at this point. On the positive side the lady who showed us to our rooms was very polite, apologetic and helpful.
