Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wagga Great service even when under pressure
After my recent stay at the Holiday Inn J9(M1) - I felt I must post a comment.
Following a security alert at Luton Airport - the hotel was extremely busy - I went to check in, only to find there had been issues with my reservation. (Not the fault of their team, problems with our booking agent) - However, unfazed, Zoe and her team worked through the demanding hordes and, my issue in a professional, calm manner, which resulted in a night in a comfortable hotel bed, rather than my car !!
Highly recommended - one of the best IHG teams I encounter.

Insgesamt alles gut!
Essen gut, nur am Preis etwas schrauben.
Zimmer sauber und immer aufgeräumt.
Kostenloses Fitness Studio. Super!
Etwas abgelegen, aber ein Auo braucht man ja sowieso.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paulh2 generation gap
For our annual family holiday break, and as such used for excursions to London to visit the theatre etc etc..
We were accommodated perfectly, having 2 rooms next to each other and executive too. Unfortunately, they had obviously suffered a little from the previous Bank Holiday the day before, as they had no white bread, nor croissants at breakfast time.When asked about the bread situation was met with a "we were busy at the weekend", rather than an apology and an offer to rectify.. Quite tricky with 3 children in tow and already paid up front at check-in for 14 full breakfasts for the duration of the stay. Also, the waitress didn't appear to know the difference between poached or fried eggs, though i think that was just an example of her poor attitude towards us, rather than an intimate knowledge of how eggs are cooked.!
Towards the end of the week, the hotel staff were of a younger generation, and very pleasant professional, chatty and altogether completely changed the atmosphere of the hotel. Reception were warm and welcoming, resolved the issue of the bathroom bulb not working after 3 days of asking the previous receptionists. Please note: the receptionist at check-in on Sunday was fantastic, as was the waitress on Monday evening, when we ate dinner at the hotel.
We used the pool, and even joined in with the Aqua exercise class that morning, which was fun.
All in all, we were very pleased with the facilities, but disappointed with the attitude of a couple of members of staff of an older generation in the morning on the Tuesday and Wednesday, who seemed to be not particularly friendly, and as such our experience was a little tarnished.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JaneMC Great location and excellent service
The relaxed atmosphere and easy check in and check out made this stay a welcome rest for us all. It was also value for money which means a lot when you are spending the weekend at the local attractions of Whipsnade Zoo and Woburn Abbey.
We would recommend this Holiday Inn and this location for a great weekend. Later than usual check out was great for us and meant we could really relax and start the day with a good breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yomma69 great comfortable hotel
A great friendly hotel, easily accessible just off the M1, food in the restaurant is beautifully cooked and if you opt for the meal deal is good value for money and the portions are very generous, we found the staff, from reception to the restaurant to be friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, we asked for extra pillows and they were in our room on our return.
The bar downstairs did not have any Tia Maria although within 5 mins a bottle appeared from another bar, although the price of the spirits was a little steep.
Rooms are clean and well presented, with easy to use heating/air con.
Would recommend to friends.
Thank you Holiday Inn Luton M1 J9

We found a very comfortable room and welcoming, helpful staff. We were part of a wedding party and the restaurant staff even managed to find tables altogether for 19 of us. I left an item of jewellery in our room and phoned the following day and was very happy if had been found then even happier when the housekeeper offered to post it to me, without charge and it arrived the next day. Very impressed, Thankyou

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by socoflyer Huge comfortable bed and excellent breakfast
Our stay was comfortable with no serious issues. Breakfast as an 'add on' to the room price was good value- a little surprised to see they (breakfasts) are now fully self service but it worked well.
A refurbishment should be considered in the not too distant future as the rooms are a little 'tired'.

I recommend this hotel for its superb value.
The staff was really helpful and the room was clean, altough it smelled a bit funny until we opened the window.
If you have children there is a farm nearby that is perfect for them, they can touch animals and there is also a soft play area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rainierahc great base for warners brothers harry potter
loved the setting and location, just a minute or 2 off the M1 yet quiet. busy road to the front but little noise inside, for anyone who is interested the ancient Briton/roman road of watling street runs behind the hotel and makes a very pleasant traffic free stroll.
We stayed there to visit the Harry Potter studios and it took us only 13 minutes on saturday morning to get there.
Staff were excellent and always friendly, a credit to management and to the hotel. Gaz was great in the bar

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo1969 Extremely poor reception on arrival
Arrived at the hotel at 2.30am ( as planned due to flight) to be grunted at (not greeted by) a grumpy receptionist who couldn't be bothered to speak properly to us. There was no acknowledgement that I am a Rewards Club Member (even though relatively new one) or that my husband is a Platinum Club Member, no offer of any bonus points/free drink. No offer of a paper, alarm call. I had to go back to the desk and ask if we had breakfast included in our booking (as we had booked it some time ago and couldn't remember), and had to ask the times and where it was as she still didn't volunteer this information to us. We should have been the grumpy ones after travelling for hours. Have never had such a poor reception to a hotel. However, I must say though that everything else was brilliant during our stay.....room comfortable and clean, greeted by a lovely young girl In the breakfast room and the food was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carrierbag Great staff shame about the food
The hotel itself is easy to find. The check-in staff were very helpful. We had a twin room which was small but very clean and had everything we needed.
We dined in the hotel's restaurant. Mistake! We both ordered the chicken main course and the chicken was so overcooked and dry I had to tear it apart rather than cut it. I left most of my meal.
To be fair, the restaurant guy did give me a 20% discount off my meal but I would have expected not to have paid for it at all as it was beyond redemption.
Breakfast was good but we opted for a full English and although it said scrambled eggs on the menu, we got fried eggs (no choice given). The overall meal was good.
Check out was painless so, overall, not a bad experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TAW64 Little things mean alot
Regular guest at Luton South - always welcomed back by staff. Just need to get the newspaper deliveries back on track - a little gripe - but its the little things that you tend to remember.
Will always stay at Luton South and have recommended it to friends. Leisure facilities especially the pool is a lovely bonus.
Worth considering as an alternative to expensive London hotels - 20 mins drive to the end of the tube at Stanmore - you can be shopping on Oxford Street in no time!
