Holiday Inn, it’s in the name...

A warm welcome can be expected at the Holiday Inn Luton-South, on the M1 at Jct.9, Markyate in Luton. What’s that I hear you say: you want an airport hotel not a country one? Well, lucky you, here you get both. You’ll enjoy views of the countryside as well as the knowledge that you’re just 15 minutes’ drive from the airport.

The perfect setting.

There’s something idyllic about staying in the country hotel. You feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the airport. The hotel feels warm and cosy, the rooms equally so. Each has everything you need and a little more for that matter.

A spa escape.

The hotel even has its own health spa, Club Moativation. Get it? Moativation? No, us either. Despite the dodgy spelling, the leisure club is very nice. The staff are friendly, there are two gyms and the swimming pool is a good size. It’s definitely worth a visit. You feel like you’re on a spa retreat in the country rather at a busy airport hotel.

We recommend the Holiday Inn South M1 J9 for:

A great escape -Run away to the country and enjoy the pool, the bar and the glorious restaurant before you get away.

Convenient parking -the Holiday Inn is the closest Luton hotel to Airparks.

Tasty food - the food is really good, at a great price and the restaurant staff are brilliant.

With some great facilities and easy access to the motorway and airport, Holiday Inn M1 J9 is a convenient option when flying from Luton.
