Beyond the magnificent facade of the Mansion House which greets guests on arrival, lies a 5 star hotel, which is like no other. However, our guests quickly discover that behind the imposing grandeur of Luton Hoo, the atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. Excellent transport links between St. Pancras and Luton Parkway railway stations mean we are easily reached from London or Cambridge. And as one of the most convenient hotels in Luton for accessing Luton airport, we are within easy reach of cities across Europe.

Im going to keep it short and sour, and the reviews below from others cover the points I was going to make. I will add, our room was above and approached through the golf bar, which felt like arriving through a harvester! We had not realised we would not be in the main house, be warned!! Check, the website does not make this clear. Our tired room, 203, had a power point with half the plastic cover exposed.. (danger to child and sub standard, just emphasising the lack of any attention to detail). But after going up the stair case with Daddy long legs on the window sill, and falling plaster in the corner we quickly became acclimatised. The Jacuzzi was about to be fixed, but was empty.. I think the about is quite a long term thing, I know someone who went for a spa day some weeks ago and got the same story... OK, I could go on, the car transfer to the rooms, with the driver with his mask under his chin, and not knowing how to unlock the child window controls for air! Asking 2 men if we were going to share a room! (Does he ask the same question of a man and woman?) OK, enough, for a £400 bill for one night, I wont ever go again, and feel obliged to warn others with this review, but scrolling down, clearly the message is already here. Though the replies from the hotel sadly do not really put their hands up and show they are hearing. I guess the word will get out and people will vote with their feet!

This is the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at and I mean no exaggeration. I rarely write reviews but I’m compelled on this occasion. Why? Because I don't want anyone else to make the mistake we just made and I think they're getting a nice relaxed, 5* break. The one small positive is the golf which is perfectly decent. The course is in good shape and an enjoyable test. However, the whole atmosphere is depressing, tired and the staff are amateurish. The exception being a receptionist who did his best to help (we were able to switch rooms). It’s so laughably bad that we didn’t know where to start so as we only had 36 hours we stuck it out. Here is the list, it’s long and it’s factual… + the whole place is dirty, smells and is so tired + the rooms are worse than ‘dated’. The first room we were offered was embarrassing (35 FYI) and looked like an old people’s home. We changed but other than being twice the size, it was just as poor. + there are no mod coms in the rooms. Everything is 20 years old. + The TV is quite funny its so bad + the food is generally average and overpriced + the ‘Cold’ drinks were always served warm + they don’t know how to make coffee (!) + the service is terrible + we tried room service but it always went to voicemail + the WiFi didn’t work in our room (#133) + the jacuzzi in the spa was broken. The changing rooms were dirty and small. + the curtains wouldn’t fully close unless you propped together using the sofas.I mean, sounds like a small issue but it's ridiculous. Given all this it’s a total waste of money. I mean colossal. I strongly suggest anyone to stay way clear and management to be honest about the state of the establishment. I've read other responses where the reply has been 'did you make us aware so we could fix the issue?' Without a full refund and a new booking at a different hotel that simply wasn't possible.

The main feature of Luton Hoo is an impressive stately home set in extensive beautiful landscaped surroundings. It has the bare bones of being a five star exclusive retreat. After all, stately homes aren’t all that commonplace. However, Luton Hoo is a sad example of something which could be fantastic but falls well short of its potential. It could be 5 star but hovers around 3 star. The bedroom, spa area, communal lounge areas, furniture and decor are all tired, dated and below par. With a serious and much needed cash injection, Luton Hoo could be great but isn’t even nearly. A word of warning, when you book you may well not be staying in the main building but in an inferior set of rooms 3 to 4 minutes walk away. Breakfast was exceptionally disappointing, as was our pre-dinner drink experience, which was totally lacklustre on sofas which seemed to have given up hope along with the staff many years ago. The service was in line with the disappointing standard of all other aspects of our stay. Of course 3 star is fine, for a 3 star price. Sadly, Luton Hoo came with a 5 star price.

Dear Firecracker81, Thank you for your review. Luton Hoo is furnished in a way that is becoming of a 250 year old stately home of national importance. Our building and its contents are maintained to the highest standard and I am sorry you found our style not to your taste. In relation to breakfast and pre dinner drinks, I can only apologise for your dissatisfaction and hope you made your feelings clear to the team who I know would have assisted. Best Jonathan Brown Hotel Manager

Slipping in Standards - we stayed overnight to celebrate anniversary having been pre-pandemic. A good start with attentive door staff. Thought we’d start with early evening cocktails. We were told ‘no cocktails and no snacks with drinks from the bar.’ The rationale wasn’t clear because there seemed an infinite number of people having afternoon tea in the lounge to the point it looked a bit slummy (no dress codes either). Room was spacious but decor looked a bit tired - like it was 10-15 years old. Dinner in the sumptuous dining room was a very mixed bag. Firstly - the meal was delicious. Strong work from the chef. The experience falls on its backside with nice - but inattentive waiting staff. The waiting staff seemed to be a mix of semi trained casual / gap year youngsters. Ask for a meal with no mushroom - you got mushroom. You don’t get to choose your bread. No butter brought to accompany the bread and long waits for order and/or to offer drinks. This location is incredible BUT… experiences at Adam’s Brasserie are leaking to the actual hotel (the Brasserie is really poor.) I never see any managerial comment from Luton Hoo on this site which makes me think it will be allowed to slide further downhill.

Dear ACMcG1975, Thank you for your review after your visit to Luton Hoo. The Management team and staff are dedicated to providing a 5 star experience for all our guests, therefore it is most disappointing to learn we failed to provide our normal high standard of service. As you are aware the hotel was closed for several months and we accept that we have some inexperienced staff. Please be assured that we have now returned to a full training programme, giving the team members you refer to confidence to fullfill their roles. We look forward to seeing you again at Luton Hoo in the not too distant future. Best Jonathan Brown Hotel Manager After a full risk assesment of our Pro Shop we took the decision to renmain closed due to the linited space and risk of covid 19 transmission. This will be reviwed inline with the Governments step 4 plan. Once again, please accept our apologies and we hope to welcome you back to Luton Hoo in the future. Kind regards

We visited Luton Hoo yesterday for afternoon tea as a gift from friends. The house/ surroundings are beautiful albeit a little tired. The gardens and grounds were lovely. Staff polite and helpful and showed us to our table. Staff wore masks in line with COVID protocols. Didn’t see any hand sanitiser. General ambiance was fine with soft background music. Room was a comfortable temperature. The afternoon tea itself was somewhat disappointing. Peppermint tea arrived made from what looked like dried mint powder used for cooking which are impossible to catch in a tea strainer. Fresh mint leaves would have been preferable or even a mint tea bag. Second pot of jasmine tea was much better. We explained to the waitress that we do not eat pork/ham products and whether these sandwiches could be replaced with an alternative (as I had also asked at time of booking). No alternative arrived just two extra slices of the remaining selection. These were replenished admittedly. We were provided with chicken sandwiches on white bread which didn’t even seem to be buttered (chicken was dry with no mayonnaise or moistening so was tasteless), cooked salmon sandwiches which was again tasteless and very disappointing and egg and cress sandwiches which were fine. None of the choices on the website menu were provided. The scones, preserve and clotted cream were fine. The selection of cakes/ pastries were average at best. Have had far superior afternoon teas and for £40 a head this was disappointing.
