Showing it's age ...

Having had an unpleasant (nigh on non existant) nights sleep in another of Luton's modestly priced hotels in June,I was hoping that this one might show an improvement.

Basically it is a pub with rooms - no separate reception (it's a space at the end of the bar !)

I was greeted by a friendly and courteous member of the bar staff and he showed me to my room ; which was on the top floor .....through a maze of corridors and staircases. The room itself was reasonably sized but very humid.....and remained so as I was unable to open the sash corded window. The radiator in the bathroom was on full blast - reminiscent of a botanic gardens hot house. The resulting turning down of the radiators thermostat and leaving the inadequate extractor fan on all night did little to disperse the heat. Said bathroom looked as though it had been recently refurbished ......a great shame that the bedroom had not been subjected to the same treatment. Paintwork chipped and cracked ,wall covering around the bed badly worn,plaster hanging off the wall (the t.v. having obviously been moved from there to a shelf). A rather sad and tired looking room. Looking around in vain for somewhere to hang my clothes,I had to settle for the ironing board in the corner . A totally hook less, hanger less room . Finding my way back to the bar was something akin to a mystery tour - take a set of stairs and see where you ended up ......couple of times at a fire exit door and then to a function room. Strategically placed signs pointing the way would have been a great help,especially on the upper floors. The bar area itself is huge .........and great if you are a sports fanatic . Which I am not . A task in itself to find a seat where you are not confronted by a huge t.v. screen constantly showing sport . Breakfast was reasonable - a buffet laid out in an area of the bar with tea and coffee,cereals,toast,fruit juices and croissants.

Again the search for a table out of range and sight of the televisions . All in all , not the best of nights stays but at least one notch up from my last visit to the town.

Affordable, honest accomodation

A great location in Luton with proximity to the University.

Friendly staff who were honest about the adjoining pub's 3am licence. Good value for money.
