“Family room was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We booked the family room which was very clean and comfortable for my wife, myself and our 2 year old son. The room had 2 double beds and a hidden little kitchenette area next to the bathroom which proved most useful; and having the fan was a nice little surprise which most definitely helped during this hot spell. The hotel is not even a 10 minute walk away from the 'old' town with nice cafe's and shops. All the staff we came across at the hotel from being greeted to leaving was pleasant and extremely helpful - nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Room Tip: If you have children, choose the family room - the little kitchen area has a fridge and microwave wh...

Genuinely a really pleasant experience. I only stopped for one night but was made to feel really welcome. Great room and great facilities - I was particularly impressed with the fridge and the microwave provided in my room! Would happily recommend to anyone. Will definitely be using this hotel again when I'm in Stevenage.

Looking for a cheap hotel in Stevenage that has the main essentials (Clean, Warm, and the shower works!) then look no further,

Archways Lodge is an old house on the outskirts of the town centre in Stevenage, and has been converted into essentially a number of mini-suites. Although the room I had was a little small (thankfully I was on my own), I found the hotel comfortable, clean, and lovely.

Although there is not a restaurant on-site (so you have to fend for your self at Breakfast), the rooms are equipped with a small fridge, and the various cafe's in the Town Centre are only a 5 minute walk away.

We came across this hotel by accident and cannot tell you just how happy we were. In fact we extended our stay. It was clean, and had a lovely feel about it. The kitchen area was a welcome bonus. There was a lovely basket of "treats" waiting for us and this and the owners made us feel extremely welcome. The whole way they had the hotel set up was great with easy acess to extra tea, milk etc. (At the hotel we stayed at previously we asked for extra milk and were begrudgingly given 2!!!!)

Room Tip: Rooma at the back are quieter.

A warm welcome, a very bright room, very quiet too... loved the bathroom too, with nice very hot water for the shower (shower all you can!). My husband and I enjoyed it very much. I definitely recommend the place for business or for the week-end...

We stayed just one night at the Archways and it was only supposed to be a bed for the night but it was a lovely welcoming place. I didn't know such warm friendly hospitality still existed. The room was airy and the little kitchen was a godsend in the early hours. Spotlessesly clean and the availabilty of an iron to use! Home from home!!

Found this small family run hotel by accident , I normally stay at the Ibis when in Stevenage but never again !!! As soon as you arrive you receive a great warm welcome and are taken up to your room for a quick guided tour , as soon as you enter the room you get the wow factor , Its cosy and very clean , fresh smelling and you feel at home , you open these small cupboard doors and a light comes on to reveal a small kitchenette, a small work top , microwave , fridge and a small basket containing Tea, Coffee, and some nibbles . If I had a complaint it would be the milk , you have is that UHT milk sachets where it would be great to have fresh milk that can be kept in the full size fridge provided . Great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed . I have already booked to stay in this hotel again at the end of July .
Well done to the owners , your hotel is spot on !!!!
