We were due to land at Luton Airport just before midnight. This meant that we couldn't pick up a car as all the agents close at 23.30.
We decided to stay overnight in one of the airport hotels.
We chose the Holiday Inn Expree as it was advertised as the nearest to the airport.
It was a five minute walk, but seemed longer as it was pouring with rain & freezing cold. (in May!)
It is a travellers hotel. Bright & cheerful...adequate.
The room offered the basic necessities. It was clean and big enough for the two of us. The bathroom was fine.
The staff were courteous.
A buffet breakfast was served. We only took coffee, but all the other guests appeared to be tucking in.
This hotel is ideal for an overnight stay. No frills, but no complaints.
