The Aubrey Park Hotel
A cut-price countryside idyll
With its low price tag and high-quality service, you can't help but be impressed with what the Luton airport Aubrey Park Hotel has to offer. A sentimental scene of old-world charm, Aubrey Park hotel (formerly the Hemel Hempstead Ramada hotel) is a wonderfully-romantic spot for those who want to get away from it all, without blowing the holiday budget. Nine miles away from Luton airport, it isn't even in the town of Luton itself, so this isolated spot feels like a mini-break before you've even left the country. Don't worry about expensive fares to Luton airport; the Aubrey Park Hotel will pay for your taxi to the terminal.
There isn't a plane in sight as you drive past lush, green paddocks before pulling into the long, bordered driveway. Once you're settled in, take time to enjoy the view of six acres of landscaped gardens and private woodland as you sup cream tea on the terrace. The rustic elegance of the crooked garden path, pretty white pergola and stone bird baths makes the outdoor space as inviting as the interior. Don't be surprised if the odd rabbit hops along to sniff out a patch of lawn too!
A three-star hotel with five-star dining at a 20% discount
Come dinner time, take a seat in the cosy, candle-lit restaurant for a sumptuous meal. Dining at Aubrey Park goes well beyond the three-star rating of the hotel and is a sensory experience that you'll want to savour; the food tastes even more delicious than it looks. What's more, all Holiday Extras guests receive a 20% discount on their food.
Guests with a little time on their hands might want to visit the nearby Roman market city, St Albans, with its many historical buildings, bars, and bijoux shops to poke around in. It's just five miles away, or 10-15 minutes by car. Alternatively, gym bods may like to make use of the local health club, which is free for all Aubrey Park hotel guests and offers the latest gym equipment on the market. So, if romance isn't on the cards, at least the aerobics machines will get your heart racing! Again, it's just a 10-minute drive from the hotel grounds.
