Simple for one night
Clean and tidy room value for money
Absolutely fine accommodation
Quiet location at the back of the hotel on the ground floor. Good value for money. Only recommendation is for more pillows on the bed and entrance to rooms was a little dark - could do with an outside lantern.
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.
The room was cold and in need of an upgrade, but it was cheap and ok for myself.
I had hoped to have a cooked breakfast, but there was nobody there to offer this when I went to the bar area.
The Red Lion Luton.
Excellent value for money.
Room very clean n bed was really comfortable. Don't be put of when it says disco on site because you don't hear it back in ur room. Customer service was excellent aswell. Highly recommend this hotel n would DEFINITELY stay there again.
Brilliant place to stay very local to everything and fantastic staff.
Nice little hotel great value for money
Room was smallish but clean and modern and a bargain for £55.
Apparently it can be quite noisy due to the bar downstairs but we came back late so that didn't effect us. Staff were very friendly and helpful. From what I could tell once the bar is closed you can't access the hotel, so bear that in mind if you want to come in very late!
I found the hotel to be run down and in need of a refurbishment.
The most important thing for me when staying away for business is a comfortable bed and a good shower. The mattress was very thin and you could feel every spring. The bed cover was clearly very old and flat and so where the pillows. The bathroom was adequate although it had a few loose or missing tiles and could do with some attention. The curtains where half hanging off of the curtain rail and i had to try and reattach the end so it atleast covered the window. Windows were generally dluncheon with dust and dirt. I was woken up 4 times throughout the night by shouting and knocking on doors along the corridor but I was not suprized as it is clearly full of contractors who had a few too many and had no awareness of others. Also cars leaving the car park which my window backed onto at 4am was not ideal. I was woken up at 8am the following morning to a loud knock at the door from house keeping. I said hello and then was asked how long will I be in the room for?. I was told the room is mine until 11 am so I said around 9 30 to 10 I will be leaving. At 9 am I had another knock at the door from house keeping and i had the same conversation through the door. I felt that I was being told to get up and leave so they could 'clean' the room. So I didn't sleep much at all and I am a very heavy sleeper and I felt rushed out if the door. So overall not a very pleasant experience. I won't be going back for sure.
Easy to find central to town centre parking, at rear safe.excellent front of house reception.
Very friendly helpful staff ,food very good and not expensive and a very good atmosphere in the hotel .would recommend this hotel
