      • Rune Steinsønn
        5.0

        Old fashion hotel, with `no nonsens`rooms and atmosphere :-) You get what you paying for! I like it . Good beds, warm and cold water in the tubes and the toilet is function:-)

        Beds, parking, internett and a good pub with good meals!!!

        None!

      • Family with children

        The staff were very helpful and nice. The food was very good Especially the breakfast..

        The window in our first room would not shut and we were on the ground floor, but that took just a word with a member of staff and our room was changed.So not much I did not like no!!

      • Group of friends
        3.2

        very little except the breakfast which was excellent and the service in the restaurant was lovely.

        The service in the hotel was sparse with even the reception desk being left unattended for the majority of the time. We did however get extra tea bags and milk when requested. The room was in a dreadful state with a bathroom covered in mould, mould covered windows, a broken towel rail and a bed that was certainly not the double it was supposed to be.

        That the staff were extreamly pleasant and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and mainly there was plenty of parking spaces.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Menu reasonable and good value. Convenient to town. Quiet even though near main road.

        Mould in the bathroom took away some of the ambience.

      • Family with children

        if im honest the way out !!!!

        ok from arriving into the reception found it hard to find staff to check our group in and when we did they were very rude indeed..once given keys could not get in room as handle was half off the door this took 3 hours for them to correct as they were busy lol...once inside room found that the windows couldnt be closed as they had no latches or handles to do this ..and it was a wet cold day ..toilet seat was half off .bath tiles were mouldy ..then once we came back in evening went to make a cup of hot chocolate to find in went out of date last year ...Hmm i will stop there....

      • Older travelers

        Bathroom was dirty. Strong smell of paint in corridor due to renovations. Threadbare carpets, very tatty looking.

      • Couple
        7.8

        Beds are extremely comfortable

        Walls a bit thin, staff tried to throw us out at 10.40 while shouting through the door that check out time is 10:30 despite check out time clearly shown as being 11:00 on email confirmation, also on previous visit 2 weeks ago we were given a key to a room that wouldnt unlock it and had to be moved to a different room at the opposite end of the hotel on a different floor, not much fun with 3 suitcases and 2 bags of shopping.

        Free WiFi in the bar

        Very run down prior to redevelopment during 2011

      • Older travelers
        6.4

        I was extremely disappointed to find out that I had been charged £16 more by booking on line when my daughter could have made the booking in person, living just across the road. I have had no reply to my email regarding this.

        No longer supplying drinking chocolate as well as tea/coffee. Also the overcharge by booking on line.

      • Group of friends

        The food was ok in the pub next door

        Rooms run down and need refurb, need new tv's

      • Single
        5.8

        The location was good for Dunstable and the surrounding area, security cameras gave confidence that the car parking facilities were safe.

        The hotel fire escape doors at the rear of the building were often left open, this did not give confidence that access to the rooms was restricted to guests only, poor security.

        7.0

        Friendly staff good location for Luton airport

        Rooms and corridors in urgent need of refurbishment

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        Bed very comfortable and shower good

        Bathroom was very shabby, no ventilation causing mildew

      • Single
        4.6

        The meals were okay

        I was extremely disappointed in my room, No 56. The tv was broke, the bath was dirty and the floor bounced and creaked too much. An extractor fan outside my window was on all night thus preventing a good nights sleep. Even with the windows shut it was loud enough to feel vibrations through the bed and pillow. I did complain the next day but the receptionist only said she would mention it to her boss.
