Given a choice and when driving I prefer staying here when on business in Stevenage. I like the David Lloyd leisure centre (free for guests) and I like the food. I love the quiet and the country location. The rooms I have had have all been as expected for a Mercure branded hotel. Trying to find a hotel with leisure facilities to match this hotel on our corporate hotel list near Stevenage is difficult and this is the only real option.
On the niggles side; the reception is tiny, you keep reversing into other business travellers and tripping over bags, elbowing each other signing invoices etc. The bar could be better laid out, it doesn't make best use of the space available but it is an old building. If it is raining, you will get soaked getting from the car park to the reception, and to the leisure centre. Or lost inside trying to navigate. Other niggles are the lack of vending machines (even discreet ones) apart from in the leisure centre if you just want a can of coke or a mars bar as shops are a drive away.
Food is pricey and room rates vary significantly and booking early is essential. It is also always full of corporate training functions for a well known electricity company. Without fail they are there when I am.
