We stayed at this hotel for 1 night (a Saturday).
As usual we arrived by train and from the station it's just a five minute walk to the hotel.
When we arrived (about 8.30pm) there seemed to be only one member of staff on duty. He was busy serving drinks at the adjacent bar so we had a short wait to be checked-in. The staff member was friendly and apologised for us having to wait.
Our room was on the first floor and was clean and comfortable. The mattress in our room was a little too soft but we had a very good nights sleep and heard no noise - either from outside or other guest returning at unearthly hours.
We went for breakfast at 8am and were slightly dissappointed (I think we were expecting the same range as a Holiday Inn Express we last stayed at in France). There were Sausages, Bake Beans, Scambled Egg, (reasonably stale) Croissants, Pain Au Chocolat, Yoghurts, Cheese, Cereals and drinks - orange, tea coffee etc.
No disrespect the residents of Stevenage but there's not a lot to do in this town and, as before, we only stayed here because of a very cheap deal and it's ideal for London (just over 20 minutes by train) without paying London prices.
