This hotel is ok if you are interacting with Luton Airport, it is within walking distance if the weather is dry. The food is ok, as is the drink, but nothing too exciting. The staff are good and friendly, so make the experience more tolerable. One problem is the parking, it’s not cheap and under control of the dreaded Parking Eye, so make sure you register of they will send you some not so friendly letters demanding money.

Not much to say - I arrived 2am, slept really well for 3 hours in a very clean and quiet room. Got up, showered, walked 5 minutes to the terminal and got my flight. It's a very efficient and clean airport stopover hotel.

We booked as we had an early flight. The bed was uncomfortable with 1 tiny pillow each and not enough towels. Lights by bed didn’t work. Room tired. Restaurant well 0/5! The soda water was water and kept saying they would bring never did, the pizza bread uncooked, salad was brown and cucumber off, noodles awful. They took those off the bill. Would have been better off staying at home!

Dear sI2021 I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Please may I ask guest to provide a room number as part of our continuous improvement programme we completed our mattress programme in May, so may I offer my sincere apologies if we have missed a replacement! Only our sofa beds are made with two pillows and I would suggest these are not designed for adults. All of our non sofa beds come with two pillows per adult, however I am not sure if this is what you are referring to? I am sorry that you had such a poor experience in the restaurant and I am pleased that the situation was resolved. If you would like to contact me at the hotel I would be grateful to discuss this further Kind regards

Clean rooms. Quiet although planes landed and took off every 5 mins . Nice to sit and watch them. Lovely linen with bath towels that covered large lady. Thats a big plus. Food was buffet at both breakfast and dinner. Good selection but only warm until I informed staff. Next days was hot. Staff were helpful and friendly. We were with a coach tour and were looked after well. Thanks.

Stayed one night prior to an early morning flight. Happy enough with everything. Did what it said on the tin. Decent compact clean and comfortable room, close to the airport. Didn’t arrive ‘till 9pm and was up and out by 4.30am. So literally just slept , showered and departed. No complaints. Maybe the young lady on reception could have smiled at least and been a little more friendly, first impressions and all that ? but hey ho, you cant have everything.

What can I say, the hits was clean and comfortable. The receptionist however, was rude, condescending and unhelpful. Yesterday, when I arrived she gave me directions to the short run car park, when I asked her just to confirm, she rather snottily drew me a map and said “we’ll I don’t know how you’re going to read that” Told me this morning I could get the bus from across the road to the short run car park this morning. Waited 45 minutes for a bus but nothing. Walk up to Holiday Inn Express, explained my situation and the woman there said I have to go to the airport to catch the bus. What a complete waste of time - won’t be staying there again or using the short run car park

Bathroom poorly cleaned - black mould in shower. Had booked a table at 18:30 but staff panicking at coach party coming in and said ‘we’ll fit you in’. Chaotic. Ordered fish and chips. Chips and peas cold and congealed. Fish ok, to be fair. Such a poor experience. Vending machines empty so no chance to buy water or snacks to replace diabolical catering. A mention for the Eastern European lady staff member - she tried her best but was failed by the poor service and attitude of her colleagues. Deeply disappointing.

Dear 719ljc I am sorry that your whole experience was affected so poorly by the points you have raised, and there was nothing positive about your stay, not what we strive for. Please may I ask all future guests to raise any issues with our duty manager so that we can rectify and ensure your stay is perfect, which is what our guests deserve. The sealant has been replaced in the room, I am sorry we had not rectified this before checking you in, not acceptable on our part, and not the standard we want for our guests. I am sorry you found the temperature of the chips and mushy peas not acceptable, but pleased you enjoyed the fish. This is not the standard we want for our guests and will learn from this and strive to do better.

Arriving as aircrew after an extended duty day and with only an 8 hour min crew rest period, we find that our rooms have been given away DESPITE HAVING SECURED WITH A CREDIT CARD ON THE HOLIDAY INN WEBSITE. We did not secure these rooms on a third party website. Despite showing the confirmation number, we were met with a shrug and a "sorry, nothing I can do". Never stay here, never book here, they deserve to be put out of business. Terrible.

Dear OtterWrangler I am sorry that you had such a poor experience with our booking system, and being out booked. I have investigated your feedback and may I assure you we did not give your rooms away, at the time of booking at 19.33 we were already full, that is we did not have the rooms to sell. We would not have booked you, out which I am sure you understand, under any other circumstance, Our rooms were out of balance on the system, which allowed an overbooking situation it was an error and may I assure you not intentional. We will be following this up with your company to reiterate the situation with our sincere apologies. Yours sincerely

Travelling as solo female. Waitress in restaurant seated me, took drinks order, never returned to take food order despite restaurant being quiet. I was seated at very back of dining area and it was impossible to get somebody’s attention. Walked out after 25 minutes as had very early start and needed to get to bed. No options to buy anything at reception other than mars bars or similar. Protein or breakfast bars would be welcome alternative for travellers in a rush. No hot water in shower or sink following morning and nobody on reception at 4.30am to talk to. Would not visit again

Dear Stay47125 I am very sorry that you would not visit again due to your poor experience. I understand we should have done better with our service. May I suggest to any of our guests if you feel you are not getting the service you deserve, please ask to speak to our duty manager. We have a duty manager 24hrs a day to help resolve such issues. We do provide grab and go bags for our guests upon request for early departures. I am so sorry you did not get a hot shower before departure, this is an expected basic from us. After investigating with my maintenance manager we could not find a fault, on our hot water system, if one bedroom does not have hot water it would mean a fail on our system. Please run water for a little longer as at 4am it may take a little time to pull through if there is low usage, which I am sorry for, as when you have a plane to catch it may feel like forever! I am very disappointed you have such a poor opinion of our hotel and team. Please call me direct if you ever need to stay here again and I will personally look after your arrangements to ensure you have a great stay with Us Thank you for your review and I look forward to hearing from you.

I stayed at this hotel for one night as i had an early flight out of Luton the next morning. Very convient for airport less than 10mins walk but i had to take a taxi as the weather was horrendous next morning. The taxi was ordered by a very helpful young man at front desk Turning to the staff first. Anyone i came into contact with were friendly n helpful from bar/restaurant to front desk a special thank you must go to Amelia n Joshua at front desk i am not technology savvy and Joshua checked me in on my flight with Ryan Air and the return flight also the relief alone!! Both members of staff were ultra friendly and helpful as indeed were also staff the manager should be so proud. Not forgetting the background staff. The room was spotless bed comfy n the garden shower to die for! i eat in their restaurant the food was divine. Whether you are holidaying or just a nights stay b4 a flight then i would highly recommend. Joshua thank you again for booking me in online
