    Very poor location - Luton town is very run down The access through the shopping centre is not easy to find when you approach it from the train station The room was tiny (12 ft x 9 ft inside which was squeezed an en suite bathroom) and shabby. Not up to the standard of a Best Western - this hotel brings down your average standard

    Well located in the centre of Luton town

    As a woman over 70, travelling alone, I appreciated the short walk (or taxi ride) from the railway station. Room clean and comfortable. Dining room and bar staff were pleasant.

    A person walking from the railway station can see the "Strathmore" sign high overhead, but the hotel access for pedestrians is not clearly marked from this direction. I had to walk around 4 sides before I found the entrance. Once you realise that pedestrian access is up the ramp through the multistorey car-park, then the access is easy.

    I have been frequently staying in this hotel for almost 3 years now. It has everything you would expect from a good hotel, courteous staff, good location, good food, good facilities, clean and comfortable rooms etc. So this place really meets my expectations. They will exceed expectations if they return my mobile charger in post that I left a few days ago  I spoke to housekeeping, they have found it and they have promised to post it asap.

    There is nothing that I don't like about this hotel

    Hotel dated. Difficult to locate by car Long walk from carpark (part of shopping mall next door) Room was on 6th floor and wind howled round the building all night.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    We have chosen this hotel as it is close enough to the airport (we only needed accommodation for one night - transfer) and also to the city centre for a bit of retail therapy (it is located right next to the Mall). would reccommend, excellent breakfast, friendly staff, good value for money.

    Location

    The worst hotel I have ever been too, very smelly and dirty smoking smelling rooms, very small rooms, very old bathrooms and dirty, gym very old with few weights, kettle disgusting so had to pay £3 for tea. Not reccomended at all, hotel from hell
