The room was clean and spacious service at breakfast was poor
Very comfortable bed. Peaceful room. relaxing stay. Very cold bathroom, no radiator or heated towel rail. So-so staff. Tried to overcharge me be £100 and when this was pointed out, were not particularly apologetic or concerned.
setting of the property, and receptionist was very helpful room service breakfast tray was dirty, full of dust in each corner.
Great charme, old England country style
Traditional style hotel The staff did not have the greatest customer service skills.
Location, character, history, comfortable room Poor service and badly organised breakfast
The room was excellent. Breakfast was a shambles, staff were unable to cope with demand and hence service was pretty appalling.
The intimate bar area, the bedroom (which was one of the traditional rooms with oak beams) The fact that the staff were happy to arrange a breakfast at 0330am due to the fact that we needed to leave early.
We liked the historical atmosphere and setting of The Crown and the authenticity of its refurbishment. The whole building has tremendous character.
The rooms were fantastic, lots of old world charm. Very romantic!
The room was a delight. Comfortable bed, crisp white bedlinen, well aired and nice view. Tastefully furnished and spacious. The window opened, always a good point for me and my Husband. Very good evening meal. Excellent choice of wines. Friendly and helpful staff. For a fried breakfast the bacon was thick and undercooked, the egg was lifeless and the tomatoes were dull and listless. The room we were in was near the kitchen fans. I would ask for a room in another part of the Hotel next time.
Fantastic location for Waddesdon estate, hotel very clean and historic building. We had a room at the back which was great. Had a good welcome at the village church. First course of evening meal was not up to scratch. The staff were very helpful, friendly and made the stay enjoyable, but there seems to be a lack of overall management in the hotel as it lacked a bit of organisation.
Just around the corner from Waddesdon Manor, which has fantastic art and building, well worth visiting. Hotel is a lovely period building that used to be part of Waddesdon estate, well maintained. Lovely garden, sit and have drinks. Nice room and bathroom. Staff foreign and somewhat clueless but nice people. Restaurant has good food but looks like pub seating. Internet did not work.
Staff were helpful but not intrusive. Interior comfortable and gardens beautifully laid out.
The room and the the choice of breakfast was excellent and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Waddesdon Manor and gardens are close by and well worth a visit
The hotel is very clean and tidy and the staff were polite and friendly, the bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was excellent with a choice of continental, cooked, or for a small supplement you could have kippers or smoked salmon. None
Wonderful friendliness and helpfulness from all of the staff.
Location, style and furnishings, size of room Booking process, hotel couldn't handle booking so had to make this via Active website. Although spoke to hotel and agreed which room would be allocated, this was not known on arrival - advised had been allocated a) twin (double agreed) b) not in main house (agreed would be in main house) c) room 5 (room 11 allocated). In the end allocated room agreed on phone but like drawing teeth. Pressurised to book dinner on arrival (at noon) without any invitation to view menu - we didn't in the end eat there. Said on 2 occasions on arrival that we would leave bag as we were 'visiting the House (ie Waddesdon Manor) and would therefore only need to have access to room after that. On accessing room and reading hotel details, found out that guests received free entry to the ground of the Manor, which would have saved us 10 pounds, but we weren't advised of this. Breakfast next day. Sat and waited for table to be dressed. No butter or preserves, had to get left over butter from next table. Preserves never arrived. Gave order to disinterested young girl. My order - scrambled eggs with bacon. Arrived - no bacon. Had to ask much older lady who delivered food for this. Then asked for mustard which not provided. When older lady delivered comment was 'well anything else' in a 'don't bother me again' attitude - didn't like to ask for preserves!! Orange juice had run out had to ask for this. Unshaven (and this not from me but my partner) lad also serving very offhand. Overall the hotel is lovely - reason I booked it was that I had arranged a corpoate event there 2 years ago for international racing people lunch and private view of Waddesdon Manor, so wanted to show this and the Manor to my partner, just a shame it was let down not by overall experience but a combination of little annoyances - eg bedside light not working. Why not have a checklist of setting a table and checking a room and tick each item off to ensure everything as it should be. Would recommend to others and stay again if in the area but such a shame to be let down. (Also noted that others at breakfast were asking for eg a glass, salt & pepper on other tables).
Attentive and friendly staff, delicious breakfast, charming room, good size bathroom, plenty of car parking and a nice garden/terrace to the rear of the hotel - highly recommended. It's not a criticism but would recommend a slightly larger bar area/lounge for pre-meal drinks and nightcaps!
Management tried very hard to be of service: not very well supported by oithers and state of equipment Intermittant heating in room. Television not working on first day, sp[asmodic on second. Waited ages for Breakfast service on first day.
staff nice and friendly, breakfast really nice, parking avaliable....quiet area, nice fire place to sit...... drinks are a bit expensive in the bar, apart from that nice hotel....
Everyone in the hotel was polite and friendly. Food was excellent. The chef came over to us personnally to see if everything was to our satifaction. Breakfast was served quickly and efficiently and again lovely. Please can you forward good wishes for everyone concerned. Excellent in our opinion. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks
Good friendly staff and good bar, breakfast Room shower window seal was very poor and suffered from water dmage.
Very poor value for money-although stated on my confirmation that the cost should be taken from c card given on confirmation i was still asked to settle account upon arrival.
Staff tried very hard to be helpfull and were very courteous. The early morning noise of traffic in Watling Street has got worse since I lived in Radlett which is something you are not in a position to rectify
Very nice staff and easy the whole process of booking and checking in is very straightforward. Parts of the hotel are a little run down and some repairs are obviously overdue. Nothing major to complain about though.
Very friendly staff and great breakfast Bathroom a little small
There were enough towels, nice towels, and extra pillows/blankets already in the room. The staff were friendly and efficient
The room was clean and the hotel had a nice log fire to sit in front of when eating The hotel could do with a little TLC and looked in need of a refurb.
Staff were very nice Shower was faulty and to small so flooded the bathroom
The bar. Room wasn't clean. Breakfast consusted of cornflakes in the room and UHT milk. Mattress was uncomfortable. Walls paper thin, kept awake by snoring and phone calls next door.
Staff were lovely, very friendly . Rooms clean Rooms too small - bedding - old lumpy duvet needs replacing Bathroom - tiny - shower head broken
Absolutely nothing The room was dirty and tiny the bed was very uncomfortable if this was the last hotel on earth I would go camping without a tent in november.this hotel is the worst I have stayed in avoid it like the plague.
Friendly staff, clean room,everything as it should be Cold room, acsses bad with luggage, no smocking
Excellent atmosphere :) Very quiet. Overall, excellent price for a quaint pub in Luton! Mattress was a little springy..:)
we had free food as the meal took so long to cook. The food was tasty.the landlord was kind enough to collect us when we could not find the location. The barmaid/waitress was friendly The bed was terrible we could feel the springs through the sheets. I could hear the man next door snoring. The room has no way to get fresh into it.I know you get what you pay for but this was not good place to get a restful night before an early flight, I was exhausted the next day.
Proximiy to Luton airport. The room was far too cramped to fit 3 adults. They had run out of food to give the same sized continental breakfast for each guest.
I would just like to thank you for the hospitality shown to me and my colleagues on our stay at yuor hotel last week, I would definitely recommend you too any persons who are asking for a top class hotel within the luton area, all meals were of an above average and really enjoyed by all and accommodation is of a high standered, No bad experiences
Value for money evening meal. Cheap. Blocked shower with 'gunge' coming up from the waste pipe. Blocked toilet. Bad smell. ONe light fitting removed and bare wires hanging down. Basic breakfast served in room with no tables or trays to eat from - had to perch on end of bed.
everything it was great, staff we re very helpful they couldnt do enough food was excellent very nice rooms clean and fresh, power shower wow we just couldn't fault it and the price was excellent too nothing
The congenial atmosphere
Very friendly staff and we were very comfortable.
It is under refurbishment but the room we had was clean spacious and had a comfortable bed food and drink was a little expencive
I am a regular business traveller and enjoyed a recent stay here. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. A charming traditional country inn. Good food an ideal place to relax. Slightly noisy later on at night from the bar, but did not spoil the stay at all.
Friendly staff Room was a bit small
When I complained about the rooms offered, there was sufficient space to allocate others which were slightly better. I would give a very low rating for the quality of this hotel. Certainly worse than it looks on the photos. It has a run down feel inside and out, and gives the impression of being uncared for. There was some work going on in the entrance to the hotel and it felt like entering a building site. None of the staff commented. In fact the staff, who were pleasant, seemed oblivious to the poor standard of accommodation and services.
helpful, friendly and made to feel comfortable.
Friendly staff, good menu
The Peacock was in a great location for me visiting family, The atmosphere was good and staff were great they couldn't do enough for you.Would use again and would recommend
