The offspring had invited friends around at home. Not exactly a party, but food, drinks, and an evening with friends. Time for Mum & Dad to get out of the way for the night.
Holiday Inn Express room rates vary enormously. A hotel at a popular location when there is an event nearby can be seriously expensive, I mean big money. And yet a hotel in a quiet location can be remarkably cheap. I really like HI Express Hotels but I object to this lack of consistency. Are you budget or expensive ? Decide please.
On this occasion the rate was very good. The room was excellent. Dinner in the bar was, well sort of ok -ish. But overall we had a good evening, and a good stay at very reasonable cost.
There is nothing near this hotel, Luton airport is a bit far away to be really convenient. The nightlife of Dunstable is too far to walk. I'm not really sure who would use this hotel, but there is quite a bit of development building going on very nearby.
Summary: Nice hotel, very nice rooms. But recommendation depends upon room rate and the reason for your stay.
