Nice friendly Bar, made very welcome, huge room for just me, clean and a most comfortable mattress. After good nights sleep woke to a great breakfast. I really would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling or working in Stevenage

We arrived late (2130) due to a late international flight, which unlike some accommodation, was not an issue for the owner. He was pleasant and showed us to our room, which was cosy, warm and clean. Although not large, it was big enough for the two of us and our bags, and we were only staying overnight. There is free... More

The Abbington has been my home from home for six months. Its a great hotel and great value for money. The rooms are a high standard, Frank, Sofia and the team are very welcoming and the food is excellent. Excellent wifi that actually works. Having tried many of the other hotels in Stevenage, once I found the Abbington, I wouldn't... More

This is a hotel that deserves more attention and a better rating. The place was a charming hotel that was a seemingly converted large old house, but I couldn't have been more impressed with the fixtures and fittings. One word that you'll read a lot in other reviews is 'small' and I would agree that the rooms aren't on the... More

We chose this hotel as my husband was going to a seminar at Knebworth Park so it was a good location for that. The room was very small so my husband kept bashing his head on the TV which was on the wall! However, it was spotlessly clean and had a fantastic shower. The walls were very thin in the... More

We chose this hotel because the Stevenage Old Town location suited us for our visit this time and because we are a little fed up of chain hotels which are often have noisy late night residents plus all the New Town hotels seemed to have remote car parking arrangements. Our room (number 3) was not overly large but very comfortable... More

Stayed one night Sunday 7 December. The room was slightly small and probably better suited to a single person but notwithstanding that it was lovely and clean, the beds were extremely comfortable and there was a good sized bathroom with a nice shower. Breakfast was cooked exactly to our liking and will definitely return when we're next in the area.

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
