I have been to The Leaside many, many times and I think it gets nicer each time. The bar is lovely. Wish it stayed open all night. The food is gorgeous. The Greek salad is just so tasty and there is so much choice. The staff fall over themselves to ensure that you have a great time. It has become...

A hidden gem in Luton. Amazing array of gins and an excellent selection of tapas. Be warned - portions are big and absolutely delicious.

Love staying here. Everything is superb, from the rooms to the staff and the tasty menu. Nothing is too much for the staff and splash out a bit for the luxury rooms. Well worth it. Not far from Luton train station and close enough to the airport for a stopover. Enjoy.

Really great service from the moment I arrived and even was given an upgrade to the honeymoon suite. Room was spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. Unfortunately I could not enjoy breakfast but the manager offered to make me a pack lunch! Thank you all.

Four of us booked a table for a Saturday evening meal and it was wonderful. The room had character and was so cosy with a real coal fire which was very welcoming on a cold January night. The service and the food was excellent and I would have no hesitation is recommending this restaurant for a really good tasty meal....
