GLH has opened its first Thistle Express hotel – a new budget brand in the market.

The first property, aimed at “value-conscious” travellers, has opened in Luton.

The 152-room hotel is located in the town centre, 10-minute drive from Luton airport and less than 30-minute train ride from London St. Pancras station. It offers free wifi, ‘bottomless’ tea and coffee and free breakfast.

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.”

GLH will open its second Thistle Express in Swindon later this year.
