You won't believe that a brand-new 3-star hotel can charge so little for a night's stay, but we're sure you'll want to reap the benefits at the Holiday Inn Luton Airport! (Formally the Ramada Encore Hotel.) You will save money, but be able to enjoy a meal in a fantastic restaurant, free wifi, a free 24-hour gym and new, comfy rooms. All this within walking distance of the terminal. We're sure this won't be the last time you stay here!
Roadworks will be causing delays at the M1, junction 10 regularly throughout 2014, so we suggest you allow extra time for your journey to Luton airport. Visit the Luton Council website for more information.
This Holiday Inn is one of the closest hotels to Luton airport and, like every other Holiday Inn, it's simple, but practical and comfortable.
Check-in is from 14:00. You'll be met by the fantastically friendly staff, who are on hand to help you out from the minute you arrive. There are plenty of comfy couches in the lounge area, where you can sit back with a coffee from the newly refurbished bar.
There's even free, super-fast wifi. Whether you're using it downstairs in the lounge, or upstairs in your room, it's high speed and won't cost you a penny extra.
The hotel's new restaurant offers delicious meals like pasta, burgers and steaks, all using locally-sourced food and served in an informal setting. Kids under 12 even eat free. Dinner is served until 22:00 or there's room service available at any time. For something a little lighter, the bar menu is packed with sandwiches and salads, as well as all your favourite drinks.
There's a studio gym, if you feel the need to burn off those dinner-time calories. It's open all day: morning, noon and night.
When it comes to bedtime, the rooms are cosy and practical. There are blackout curtains, a flat screen TV, hairdryer, trouser press and all you need to make tea and coffee. You'll even have a Hypnos bed, internationally-renowned for being among the most comfortable in the world. With all of this, you'll have everything you need for a great night's sleep.
In the morning, fly fully-fuelled by pre-booking the Holiday Inn's buffet breakfast. You'll even save yourself a few pounds in the process, and you can eat as much as you’d like. It's served in the hotel's restaurant from 06:30 to 10:00.
When it's time to fly, there are three options for getting to the airport. Taxis take just 5 minutes, but cost £5. The public bus takes 7 minutes, leaves from just outside the hotel and costs £1.30. Or, you can walk for free, and that takes 12 minutes.
Hints, tips and extra bits:
The hotel has rooms that are accessible to disabled guests. These rooms have more space to fit a wheelchair, wet rooms with hand rails and shower seats, emergency pull cords, lowered light switches and spy holes in the door, and silent fire alarms.

Holiday Inn room-only procedures
When you're ready to fly, there are 3 options for transferring to the airport. We'd recommend taking the public bus which runs from 100 yards away from the hotel. It leaves every 20 minutes between 04:55 and 23:30 during the week, and 05:25 and 22:40 at the weekend. It costs £1.30 per person, each way. Buses run every 40 minutes on Sundays.
The airport is within walking distance though. It takes 12-15 minutes, and is uphill for some of the way. You will have to cross over roundabouts, so this might not be the most convenient option.
Taxis are available 24 hours a day, cost £8 at a fixed price and take 5 minutes.
Holiday Inn with parking at Airparks
You will need to drive to Airparks first to drop off your car, before hopping on a transfer bus to the hotel. These run every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day. The journey takes 13 minutes to the hotel and is included in the price. You will be dropped outside the Holiday Inn Express hotel, which is a 2-minute walk away.
When you're ready to fly you can walk to the terminal, which will take 12 minutes, or catch the public bus to the airport. It runs every 20 minutes Monday-Saturday between 06:00 and 19:00 and costs just £1.50 per person each way. Buses run every 30 minutes on Sundays. If you prefer a taxi will also be available 24 hours a day and cost £8 at a fixed rate.
