Decent place, just off the Luton Airport!
Decent place to stay, just off the Luton Airport. The area was kinda deserted, but still okay. The lift wasnt working, or so was I told. The heating in the room wasn't working either for the first hour, and had to make do with a portable heater for some time. Other than that, all went well.

Good place to stay
I chose this hotel because it has elevators (lifts). This has to be balanced with the fact that there are 3 steps going down from the meeting rooms to guest rooms on each level. Elevator selection buttons are marked G, 1, and 2 while the floors are labeled 1, 2 and 3. Staff is friendly and efficient. First room I was in was very cramped with the double bed in it. I refused to stay there when I noticd that the toilet had not be flushed and the bathroom had a bad smell. Desk clerk moved me to a different room on the first floor which was very nice and no problems with odors or cleanliness. Another staff member helped me move my heavy suitcase because of those three steps up to elevator level. Restaurant on site was good. Entree was good. Desert was overpriced for what I served and described incorrectly on the menu.

Average, nothing special
Typical, slightly below average holiday inn. The dining area was alright, but the rooms where slightly tired, no temperature control in the room, shower was a bit old, the pool area was ok. Would be happier if it was cheap but it was not.

Not what you’d expect!
The hotel lobby bar and restaurant areas were lovely. Recently refurbished clean and welcoming. However the bedrooms are a different story. Whilst being comfortable and having everything you’d expect. The decor was dated. Shower curtain was mouldy as were the sills in the bathroom. Wallpaper falling of the walls. Stained carpets and seats. Not what you’d expect from a holiday inn. Breakfast was very good though.
