I have now been staying at the Abbington for about 4 weeks and can say that this continues to shine and leave me with a feeling of home from home that the big chains just can't match. Rooms are great and the shower is a marvel. You will understand what I mean if you get here. Service is personal, but... More

Nice guest house with small but tidy rooms, bathroom was good size and clean. Located on a busy road in Stevenage I surprisingly didn't hear the traffic at night and guest house has a surprisingly largish parking area around back. The only downside I saw at this hotel was the walls of the room; it was obvious the bracket holding... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times now. It's nice to stay in a place with a bit of personality. The rooms are clean and well stocked with toiletries, tea, coffee and biscuits. There is a restaurant and bar and the breakfast is provided free of charge. The breakfast is freshly cooked and the best I have had compared... More

My partner and I had a lovely nights stay over the weekend for a family gathering. We were in a room in the detached bungalow at the back of the building; the room was lovely - it had a double bed and a single, so plenty of room. The bathroom was equally nice with added extras like soaps, shaving kits... More

We searched onlin, the sight looked perfect and easy to follow, we then phoned up and spoke to Frank who left us feeling confused . had we got onsuit or not, were we in a bungalow? We needed a room so we took pot look. Upon arrival the B &B looked fabulous, a beautiful floral display and although I don't... More

My room was in an annex (actually a house behind the main hotel) and it was clean and comfortable with all the usual facilities. Varied selection for breakfast, lots available. Friendly breakfast and reception staff. Only negative, curtains are a bit thin, let a lot of light in, other than that it was great!

I found 3 dead spiders 1 moth and 1 live spider in my bed. There were spiders hanging in the corners of the room. There were dead bugs in the tiny bathroom. Loads of mould in the shower. The toilet was dirty. The wallpaper was hanging off the walls everywhere. All the doors in our room had dents in. While... More

This hotel has surprised me - it is as good as others have written. Effectively a large English house that has licenced bar in the front room and a large dining room behind it. It sits in a row of similar houses and thankfully there is a large sign at front fence that makes it easier to find. There is... More

Stayed here last night after making a last minute booking as I was attending a nearby football match. I often stay in local hotels as I support the local team but don't live nearby. I've never been here before but have already booked for the next time I'm visiting. From arrival I was warmly welcomed by the owner (Frank I... More
