“An Oasis In Luton”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I was staying in this this hotel for one night, whilst at the same time attending a dear friends 50th Birthday party in the function room and garden. The hotel itself is a beautiful building, ooozing charm and the second you are within the gates, you forget you are in the centre of Luton. The staff - absolutely perfect, totally professional, helpful and very jolly and fun to be around. I need an excuse to go back to this hotel soon.

I've just spent a week at the Leaside and can honestly say that I hadn't expected to find such a gem of a hotel given the reasonable price of the accommodation. The Leaside offers clean, nicely presented rooms with comfortable beds, free wi-fi and air-conditioning - a great bonus with the temperatures we're currently experiencing. The sun terrace is really lovely and has a friendly relaxed feel. There is an extensive menu and all the meals I ordered were beautifully cooked with good quality ingredients. It is possible to order dishes as tapas or Mains and everything is reasonably priced. Be warned, the mains come in very generous portions! Perhaps most importantly, the staff are great and nothing seems to be too much trouble. They create a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Finally, security in the hotel is high, with coded entry doors on the hallways to bedrooms which I personally welcomed as a woman staying on my own. Would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone visiting Luton.

On the 18th July, a busy Friday night my friend had organised a last minute 21st with the hotel and they did their very best to accommodate late arrivals, change of numbers and at times confusion around an evening with two other events. The staff managed it calmly and professionally with a smile on their faces providing us with service I haven't come across in a long time. Thank you and well done to all the girls behind the bar and the long suffering chef in the kitchen! Susan SPS Room 202 (thankfully air conditioned!)

Room Tip: We were at the top in room 202. Quiet and air conditioned. Small shower room but perfectly adequate...

I recently held my wedding reception at the Leaside, and stayed overnight. The experience was wonderful. In particular, the event organiser, Janine, made arranging everything as simple as I could hope for. She had a "can do" attitude, discussed with me what we wanted from the reception, and offered elegant solutions when I worried that things might get complicated. The reception went off smoothly, and service was friendly at all times.

We stayed in a suite room, which absolutely blew me away. The air conditioning was also very welcome, given the heat-wave that was taking place at the time!

Overall, I would definitely book the Leaside again for future events.

i recently stayed at the leaside hotel with my fiance as attending a family wedding in luton, we found the staff to be very welcoming and helpful, the hotel and bedrooms were nicely decorated and very clean, the breakfast which was included in our weekend deal was great, good variety and cooked to order. The outside sitting area is lovely, surrounded by flowers, it was great to sit out and have a cocktail, it felt as if we were abroad, i would definately recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in luton, great value for money and close to airport.

Nice clean hotel, really enjoyed my stay, my only input is the need for a concierge to help customers with luggage or heavy luggage considering they do not have a lift in the hotel.

Also they can as well plan to provide a solution for the insects that bites which i believe the flowers in the location and a bit of bad dumping pond like gutter in front of the hotel attracts to the rooms,this insects bit me and that wasn't funny.
