Holiday Inn Luton-South M1, Jct.9
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.

old dated hotel, quite expensive considering. Noisey from traffic. Convenient for M1 though

Very Good8.0
Great location on a quiet road only a few minutes from Luton Airport. The only lift wasn’t working when we arrived but was fixed by the next morning. All the staff were friendly.

Convenient stopover hotel
Comfortable rather than luxurious hotel, it was convenient for us for where we wanted to go. Food in restaurant was good and there was a good choice at breakfast. Spa facilities were a bonus apart from the pool which was closed
