where to stay night before flight out of Luton

Hi,

Looking for some helpful suggestions regarding where to spend our last night in Englnd before our flight back home.

We are a family of five and will be driving from Devon after spending couple of weeks in England.

My first thought was just to stay right near the airport the night before but then I thought there might be a nicer area to stay in not far from there.

WE need to be at the airport at around 10am so I dont want to feel stressed about driving to the airport.

TIA

St Albans is less than half an hour's drive away: http://www.enjoystalbans.com/ or if you want to be even closer to the airport, consider the town of Harpenden: http://www.harpenden-history.org.uk/

The Grove Harpenden, on the outskirts of Harpenden, looks really nice, but I'm not sure if it's suitable for a family of five: http://www.thegroveharpenden.co.uk/

Hi,

Hitchin is a nice little historical market town or Stevenage which is a bit bigger with a wider range of hotels; both are quite close and have a better feel than Luton. Well, most things would.

Sorry I can't recommend any accommodation there because I have relatives in Luton so have never had to stay near there in paid hotels.

Cheers,

UF

Hi,

Firs Hotel ( http://www.firshotel.co.uk/ ) in Hitchin have family rooms. Travelodge in Stevenage also.

Depends on the style and budget you prefer. The Firs will put up a folding bed/cot for a third child, depending on age I suppose. Ok, I see you have a 2 year old, so a cot would work.

As you know doubt know, what constitutes a family room is often very varied.

Cheers,

UF

Don't forget that you'll be driving at the tail end of the rush hour...if a week day could still be busy. St Albans would be my choice for the added interest.
