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

Arrived to a freezing cold room apparently because boiler was bust and being fixed next day - it wasnt! Eventually issued with electric fan heater which caused power to trip off! Still cold, but no-one really interested. Highlight of third day was a very loud screaming match - heard all over 1st floor - with the contestants apparently the owner/manager... More

Conveniently situated to the centre of Stevenage Old Town, The Abbington offered a traditional homely hotel with a comfortable twin room with ensuite shower room. The hotel was well heated and extremely quite. I only stayed one night but enjoyed the stay immensely. The breakfast was excellent. Parking was convenient.and free. The owners were away and the caretaker manager had... More

We booked in for one night as we were attending a friend's wedding and didn't fancy the drive back to Gloucestershire the same day. On arrival we were taken round the back of the main hotel to an annexe where we were shown into our room. The room was large and contained a double bed and one single but the... More

Last May I made a business trip to Stevenage to attend a meeting. Although the organizing people recommended some options at downtown, close to the train station, I preferred to stay out of that area and I picked this beautiful cottage, at 10 minutes walk from Old town. To get to the hotel you can at first take a taxi... More

The room was small and average, but the bed was comfy and it did the job! The hot was cold and the cold was hot but once I figured that out, it was fine. The reason why I am giving the hotel 4 out of 5 is because they were kind enough to let us leave our car for another... More

I stayed at this hotel in a family room in a bungalow at the back of the car park. You won't find the photos on the website because if you did you would never book this hotel. The main door to the bungalow did not have a lock on it so it is open at night, anyone could walk in.... More
