My other half booked this hotel as he was going to be late picking me up (so I was a little dubious). I need not have worried.
It is a 2 minute taxi ride down the hill from the airport,, when you get to the roundabout at the bottom of the hill -
It is straight across just over to your right - the fare was £7 odd, but £5 odd was the minimum night rate charge. There are plenty of taxis ranked up at the airport. You can easily walk down the hill, but as I was alone, it was midnight, and had recently been mugged, I preferred to take a taxi.
I was greeted by a very friendly Receptionist, who swiftly booked me in, and even helped me to open the doorway to the lift area.
The room was normal size for the type of hotel, but generous, not cramped. Double shower, fits 2 people if you are so inclined :). Comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities. Nice decor.
I went down to the Bar to await the arrival of my other half at what was by now 2am.. no problems with the chaps chatting amongst themselves in the bar area .. So good place for women travelling alone in need of a late night drink.
In the morning I was able to take a tray of tea up to our room.
The day staff were equally as pleasant and helpful as the night staff.
All in all the staff couldn't do enough for you. Even the painter sprucing up the
Iife area was extremely friendly!
I have just booked my young daughter into the hotel for the night as she is arriving on a late flight.
So that is a major recommendation!
Room prices for a double are between £60 and £70. Bargain.
Thoroughly recommend this hotel, and will be using it whenever we fly in or out of Luton.
