“Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We held my mother in laws 80th birthday party in "The Orangerie" conservertory at the Leaside and I cannot say enough how much we were looked after by Paul and his staff especially Yvonne & Tu. Nothing was too much trouble for them and everyone had a great time. If you want a party organised this is the place to go and if you cannot make it home the hotel has wonderful bedrooms all individually decorated to a high standard. We will definately be back.

My friend and i stayed here for one night after a pre arranged football match with friends. One word stunning. The hotel was simply wonderful very clean and tidy nice decoration all around and perfect rooms. The room I had had a an outside area with it which was perfect for a morning cup of tea. Very comforatble beds and ample room to suit. The staff were very friendly and helpfull threy made us feel welcome.
Breakfast in the morning was excellent very well cooked and very tasty. Highly reccomend the breakfast.
The Location of the hotel is excellent close to the town centre and all its amenities perfect for our needs that day.
I shall definatly be returning to this hotel

Room Tip: the one with outside area is very large and comfortable

My new husband and I got married yesterday and had our reception at The Leaside. We stayed in a beautiful room; number 103. A number of our family and friends also stayed at the hotel. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. From start to finish the staff made our big day go without a hitch, particularly the manager Milena. The hotel made the perfect wedding venue. They allowed us to hire a band, set up lighting, decorate the venue the day before our wedding and Milena chipped in at every step and was simply wonderful. She could not do enough for us or our guests and she did everything with a smile on her face. She, along with the other staff really made me feel special and did everything they could for us. In fact, one of the bar men even got up an did an irish dance for us we had an irish band). Turns out the bar man is a champion irish dancer. Now that's service! The food was incredible and the venue looked exceptional. It was a perfect mix of elegant, intimate, warm, inviting and yet formal at the same time, and so full of character. Everyone raved about their rooms and the breakfast the morning after the wedding was mouth watering. I simply cannot believe how much we got for such a reasonable price. I cannot thank the staff at the Leaside enough for making our big day run perfectly and would recommend this hotel to anyone whether it be for a romantic weekend, a business trip or an event. Thank you so much to everyone at The Leaside.

Room Tip: Room 103 is a stunner; four poster bed, fireplace, big sunken bath, full of character.

Lovely room, good staff, friendly and a wonderful breakfast. All in all a very good place to stay if you are coming into Luton Airport or from anywhere else for that matter. The hotel management could not have been more friendly.

We found the hotel was clean and pleasant. Had some really lovely rooms. I found the staff very accomodating, but still room for improvement.

Food was good and generous portions.

I was very disapointed with my room 301, which is supposed to be a twin, it is more like a single and you could barely swing a cat. Nothing like the website pictures. After reviewing some images I realise I had a courtyard room. This room was not up to scratch compared with the other rooms and standard of the hotel. I was not offered another room, or a discount on the room price either.

I would stay again, but if offered 301 & 302 which are twins?? Thanks but no thanks, I would rather stay at home.

We found the Hotel clean and very friendly with attentive staff. It is very convenient for the Town and surrounding area and also for Luton Airport and trains. It benefits from owner management who take a very personal interest in the efficient running. The breakfasts are very good with very generous portions, though evening bar snacks are more variable in quality.
On site free parking is very welcome, but they are aware of possible security problems. Although not a luxury Hotel, it is very comfortable and very good value for money. There are several steps from the car park and no lift, so not really suitable for the less able. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who asked.

Room Tip: Book early
