“Decent enough”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Stayed for 6 weeks in total, It was everything I expected from a hotel, any small issues that cropped up during the 6 weeks were rectified ASAP. Very friendly staff, nice rooms, nice breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

Whenever in Stevenage on business I try and stay here - or at the Novotel just off the A1. The advantage of this hotel is that it is very close to the Old Town and so you have great access to multiple bars, pubs and restaurants within a very short stroll. The rooms are normally clean, tidy and do the job - nothing flash but reasonable value for money. I joined the loyalty scheme and received a free can of drink and a Mars Bar - never been offered anything since!!! The rooms at the top of the hotel can be a bit cramped (for anyone over 5ft tall) but this is expected from what is a converted old building - if you want clean lines and modernism go to the Novotel

Room Tip: rooms to the back of the hotel are quieter (the front sits on the High Street)

I stayed here for one night on business, the room was lovely and spacious bit I felt like I was walking miles to getto my room from reception and its not as easy witha laptop bag and suitcase and stairs. In the room there was a lot of dark furniture which made it feel a little crowded, would be good if I was there for 2 weeks. The bed was a good size but I think the matteress had seen better days as it was lumpy. I have a feeling the room I was in had yet been refurbed as the room doors closer to reception were different.

overall pleasent staff and free wifi, would stay here again but ask for a room closer to reception.

This hotel is the definition of the word average. There is nothing especially bad about it - but likewise there is nothing especially good about it. Starting with the rooms which are an absolute maze to find - and for whatever reason 300 comes directly after 150 or something absurd. For the price we paid the rooms were fairly decent. Plus points were decent size, clean (which is always the main thing), and had pretty much everything you would have expected. Negative points were our "double" was actually two singles pushed together, shower was the strength of a watering can, and little bit of black mould around the window.

The staff were very much a tale of two stories. We stayed the weekend of April 26/27 for a wedding and the young girls at breakfast are an absolute credit to the hotel. Helpful, polite, and went above and beyond what they needed to do. The night porter on the Friday night was also great. However, the staff at front of house need a couple of lessons in customer service. The big guy has got a smart answer for everything - and the women wasn't great either.

Breakfast is pretty poor and unless it is included in the room rate, just walk out onto the high street where there is plenty of choice. I wouldn't say don't stay here. If you are in Stevenage for a couple of nights on business or for a nearby wedding then this hotel will probably do the job just fine, just don't expect anything special.

A little tip. If you are part of a big wedding party - please check your bills carefully on checkout. At least 3 of the couples in our party had items on their bill that shouldn't have been there. The manager was called to deal with one incident, and to be fair she dealt with it right away.

We have just returned from an overnight break. We stayed on a deal which included afternoon tea, evening meal. The hotel staff are a credit to the company but the hotel is very basic and despite a reputed makeover there is much to be done and the general quality is not very high. We feel that the hotel is missing a trick as although there are many restaurants in the High Street there is no real quality. The Cromwell could become the place to dine but as it is the food is of poor quality and many menu items were not available. It's a shame because the history of the building is very interesting.
