Stayed here for one night as I had an early flight to catch at Luton Airport.
Room is beautiful, the bed is so lovely! Normally, I am too excited to sleep the day before any flying trip, but this bed helped me drop off with no bother and I was actually more refreshed and awake when I left for the airport! Room had a toilet and basin, I was able to share the shower, but as I hadn't brought a spare towel or shower items, I had to give it a miss!
Extra points for hot chocolate on the tea tray - so rare in B&Bs these days!
Karen greeted me warmly, including her lovely gorgeous cat! She showed me my room and called the nearby pub to check if they were still serving food and she then drove me to the pub and gave me a torch to walk back with. The pub is really nice and had delicious fish and chips.
I got back, went to bed and woke up to find Karen had already been up for an hour, made some breakfast for me and had arranged a taxi to take me to the airport.
I was able to leave my car there too, so it was a lot cheaper to do this than book the airport car parking at Luton.
Would highly recommend staying here!
