Had an overnight stop here on a Friday night. An absolute bargain at £45 twin room, flexible rate, including breakfast.
The room was basic, but comfortable. Everything modern and modular – No drawers, and just a few hangers [no wardrobe], large desk, TV, & great Wifi.
The included breakfast was not marvellous, but did the job. All self service and clear your own table.
Parking was easy and plentiful. The hotel is on the edge of Dunstable, with building taking place opposite.
We ate at the hotel in the evening. Menu limited, but food was good quality, and the price was around normal for a hotel restaurant. You order at the bar, and are given a number so the waiting staff can find you. We had to ask for the “mood” lighting to be made brighter, so we could read the menu. All the staff were friendly and approachable.
Unfortunately our sleep was disturbed by shouting and banging early in the morning by some drunken guests. After a while I phoned reception, and complained . They sent someone up, and the noise stopped for a while. Reception called back, and apologised, and offered a £20 refund.
A little later the noise and banging restarted, so I called again, and they sent staff up again. When we came to check out they discounted all of our food and drinks from the bill, without any prompting, and were extremely apologetic. Obviously they cannot be blamed for the behaviour of other guests, and they did their best to solve the issue, so I would probably use them again.
