Updated 05.10.20 - Due to COVID restrictions we have amended our Autumn Ball and are now offering End of Summer Relaxation event with walks, dinner and catch up with new friends. The new details are - 


Saturday 31st October

Arrive at the hotel from 11.00 and leave bags at reception, rooms will be ready for check-in from 15.00.

On arrival relax in the hotel swimming pool, gym or jacuzzi for a few hours, then enjoy lunch at the hotel (time slot should be booked in advance), OR, meet with your fellow guests and Host in reception at 11.15, to leave at 11.20 and drive ( in their own cars or share a taxi) to Saint Albans ( a 20 minute drive). We will meet with our tour guides at 12 noon, to enjoy a walking tour of the area for 120 minutes. https://www.stalbanstourguides.co.uk/

Guests can then enjoy a light lunch in a coffee shop, pub or restaurant, as they chose, in Saint Albans. The cost of the walking tour is £5 per person – guests pay themselves. If you prefer,  drive directly to Saint Albans and meet your Host and guests there.  Afterwards everyone will make their way back to the hotel.

All meet back at the hotel for the evening event, guests will meet in the bar for pre-dinner drinks at 18.45. It will be free seating in the bar (inside and outside seating areas) and guests can enjoy a drink before dinner, while chatting with fellow guests.

At 19.15 we will move upstairs to our private function room. We will enjoy a 3 course meal with ½ bottle of wine and water, plus tea and coffee. Guests will be seated on large round tables with 6 guests per table, spaced out as required by regulations. Listen to back ground music during the starters. Guests remain at the same table of 6 guests throughout the evening.

At 20.00 we have arranged a Duo live singing group to join us and they will sing from 20.00 – 20.45 and again from 21.00 to 21.45. Guests can relax at their table with the music and talk to their fellow guests .

The evening will finish at 22.00 hours when the bars close and the private room should be vacated. Guests can finish their drinks in the ground floor area, outside in the smoking area, before retiring to bed for the night. Guests can order and enjoy further drinks in their own bedroom via room service.




On Sunday morning enjoy your breakfast in the hotel restaurant, again guests will be spaced out at tables to enjoy their breakfast and chat to fellow guests.

After breakfast enjoy the hotel pool and gym facilities. For anyone wanting to enjoy a leisurely 60 minute walk with your Host, meet in reception at 11.00

If you cannot make the walking tour of Saint Albans on Saturday there is a public tour leaving at 11.00am on the Sunday which you can join also, before you depart.

All dietary requests given in advance will be catered for.



A warm welcome is to be expected at the Holiday Inn and although this hotel is located so close to the motorway, it feels very much like a country hotel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Luton.
The hotel has its own Health Spa, pool and gym so why not work up a sweat after breakfast or relax in the pool and hot tub. Triple glazed windows and our famous pillow menu ensure a great night sleep!
The hotel also offers secure parking for those arriving by car.
