“Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

This hotel is within pretty easy walking distance of the airport - follow signs saying 'Hotels' on your right as you exit the terminal. There is also a shuttle bus, however, (£1.50p) if you need this that stops round the corner from the entrance.
We got an excellent deal here on one of the major hotel booking sites. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the service good.

Check in nice and easy, staff pleasant.Up to our room, which was very nice, but cold, rooms are certainly a touch nicer than other chains.
Down to restaurant just after 6, but this area is cold too.Food was ok, but I thought expensive, 2 meals, 2 drinks 36 pounds.
Finally about 10 room began to warm up and had reasonable sleep in a comfortable bed.
Down to restaurant just after 6 and was grateful for cereals and toast included in the price which made the room rate very good value.

We stayed here for one night in October to catch an early morning flight to Spain. Room was pleasant and comfortable with a large flat screen TV. Free WiFi is available though the connection speed was rather slow. A basic cold breakfast was available from 4.00am which was handy for a quick bite before we left for the terminal.I did have a slight issue with one member of staff who I felt did not provide good customer service but other than that it was a good stay.
The Mid Term car park is directly opposite the hotel so a very short drive to park the car before catching a bus to the terminal. I would certainly recommend this hotel if flying out of Luton.

Above all, this hotel is great for easy access to the airport. From what I can gather, it is the closest hotel to the airport. It is a 5-10minute walk from the terminal, and very easy to find.

Upon arrival, the staff were polite, friendly and helpful.

The rooms were clean comfortable and with more than adequate space.

The only negative aspect was the breakfast. Before either 6 or 7am (I can't quite remember which) they only do cold food, i.e a selection of soft cereals, ridiculously watered-down fruit juice, tea, coffee and toast. The hot breakfast isn't any better. As with many other Holiday Inn Express Hotels, the breakfast was barely edible. But, there is a popular diner chain restaurant in the airport - so I'd recommend hanging on until you've checked-in!

Breakfast aside, the hotel was really good - definitely served it's purpose.

Recommended.

We stayed one night here in order to catch an early morning flight out of Luton the following morning. The location was adjacent to where some smaller planes park. The terminal was maybe a 10 min walk. The check-in process was very quick and the personnel were very friendly. The room was modern and spacious (especially for European standards). The bed was very comfortable and we did not experience any noise at all from airplanes. In my online reservation I had indicated that I would need an extra roll-away bed for a child and upon entering the room, the extra bed was already properly made.

The lobby was spacious and had a decent basic bar. And there was free breakfast items available at 5 am.

If you need easy access to Luton and need a comfortable place, I definitely recommend staying here.

Because of predicted bad weather I decided at the last minute to check in here the night before my early flight. The room was great. Clean with two comfortable single beds. What more can one ask for? Breakfast at 5am was cereal or toast but at that time of the morning I'm hardly in the mood for a cooked breakfast and a newspaper.

We decided to save time on an early flight and try staying on site with a parking deal . Oh dear. The air parks transfer was pain free, our arrival at HI was pleasant, the room as expected small but okay - first impressions.... We decided to get a snack - big mistake . It took over an hour for soup and chips that were really not worth the wait. Other guests were chasing food orders and looking at the meals I wouldn't have bothered . It was all micriwaved or deep fried with dried up peas -ugh!!.
We went off to bed early, not a comfortable experience , it was very springy and the room was very cold despite trying to warm it with the AC. It didn't work so we put the towels on the bed as well to keep us warm. Cleaning our teeth was a problem as the sunk was blocked and no water could go down the plug hole . It must have been like that for ages otherwise housekeeping would have noticed. Probably not as all they do us move the dust around with a cloth. Finally the piece de resistance was breakfast. I have never had to experience such a disgraceful and pathetic buffet. Okay it was 5 am but the booking in staff are proud to advise of their early breakfast from 4am. It was a joke and beyond funny. Firstly the tops oc the tea and fruit machines were covered in a layer of dust - days old .The choice consisted of : cereals of a poor and unknown make, tea and coffee, juices which were out if a machine and were AWFUL , bananas and apples ( old) and to cap it a pile of white and brown sliced bread for toast in a machine that did one side at a time. We didn't expect a full English, just as well as that isn't until later and God help the people who tried that. It really was grim and I was embarrassed to be British with a large French family in the breakfast bar trying to make do with such rubbish.
It was a poor show , possibly deserves 1 star but they do say that you pay for what you get!!!!!!
