We stayed for only one night in a twin room before catching a flight from Luton, about 20kms away. Although the room and en-suite bathroom were on the small size, there was absolutely everything there to make your stay comfortable - comfortable beds, TV, good WiFi, toiletries, hair dryer and a great breakfast. Plenty of secure parking on site. Friendly...

This is my first and by no means the last time I stay at the Abbington. From the moment I came into the hotel I felt at home, its that kind of place. I hope they dont mind me saying that its an old fashion B&B/hotel, and thats a positive, I live a couple of weeks a month traveling around...

This is a stereotypical B&B where I stayed for a single night in a small but entirely adequate "single" room, which had everything you could possibly need. It was clean with an en-suite and included a number of toiletries etc. that you struggle to find in some larger UK-wide accommodation providers. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the breakfast...

Stayed here for one evening after a trip to Knebworth House. The hotel is a typical old fashioned English B & B with a window hatch for reception as you enter. A lady (I'm assuming the owner) smiled and said "name" when we arrived...no hello/good afternoon. Told us we were staying in the 'bungalow' (which is a separate building at...

I had a really good night sleep, lovely bed. Bedding Clean, room clean and fresh. Breakfast, a really excellent choice of fruit, cereal,pastries, cooked english breakfast, even strawberries. Lovely area to sit outside. Bar. What more could the overnight - or for a few days - traveller need. Even supplied toothbrush, toothpaste and disposable razor with shaving cream. If up...

Lovely small family run hotel, staff make the stay very welcoming. Wednesday is roast dinner night and would recommend the Lamb shank. Yum yum. Wi-Fi OK, rooms OK and beds comfy. Carpark just big enough and even a small bar with Sky TV.
