Next generation property brand Thistle Express, glh’s new hotel concept, is launching its first site in the heart of Luton today.
Thistle Express is aimed at the savvy, value-conscious, modern traveller and offers fast, free wifi, bottomless tea and coffee and free breakfast for all guests.
Travellers will find Smart TVs to stream their own content in every bedroom, along with blackout curtains and Hypnos mattresses.
Designed for leisure and business travellers the 152-bedroom hotel is located in the heart of the town centre.
The 10-story building has seen significant investment in its refurbishment, designed by architects Unwin Jones Partnership and carried out by Novus Property Solutions.
The interior has been designed by Faber Design who recently created the Formula 1 R&D Centre, now used as the new headquarters for a leading Formula 1 motorsport company.
Thistle Express Luton’s general manager, Sudeep Majumdar, said: “I am delighted to play a key part in the opening of Thistle Express Luton. We are looking forward to welcoming our first guests through the door and delivering great hospitality. We’ve got a great team lined up, who are all excited to be putting Luton on the map.”
Neil Gallagher, CEO at glh hotels added: “We listened to our customers and responded to the demand for a value proposition with fantastic amenities, such as free Wi-Fi, which is crucial to all guests regardless of the purpose of their stay. Now we’ve put roots down in Luton, we’ll be looking forward to the opening of Thistle Express Swindon later this year.”
