Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allypally nice hotel.
Our only problem was our visit coincided with 3 coach parties, which meant we could not eat in the restaurant, although we did eat in the bar area. The queue for breakfast was horrendous, about 20 minutes, which was frustrating as I would think that we paid more than the members of the coach parties.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by space_traveller Great English breakfast and comfortable beds
I like to stay at the Holiday Inn in Stevenage during my business trips. The staff is very kind and helpful.
I like the ambience of the rooms and the beds are very comfortable.
Every morning I look forward to the English breakfast. The breakfest buffet is not big, but the quality of the foods is good and that's more important for me - quality over quantity.
The only thing which disturbs the wellness factor of the rooms from time to time is the fire department which is located right beside the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Simon-H Pray you aren't on the second floor if there is a Function
I have stayed here many times over the last few months and the staff are fantastic and the stays are usually OK but this week I have the misfortune of my room being on the 2nd floor above the entrance and tonight there is a function going on the 1st floor. All I can currently hear and feel is the thumping bass beat of music coming from the floor below and the volume is has been slowly increasing for the last hour and a half. I am told by reception that the function will stop at 11:00 and I am hoping my information is correct because it will be impossible to sleep.
Fortunately this is the last night of my stay and whilst I have an Executive Room which includes onsite car parking (reserved exclusively for Executive Rooms) on 2 of the 4 nights this week when I have arrived at the car park has been full (I have had similar issues on previous weeks). This would indicate that there is insufficient parking for the Executive Room Parking or insufficient controls to ensure that the parking is reserved.
I am a little disappointed that the hotel has put a higher priced executive room immediately above the function room and a little surprised that there aren't better noise protection in such a new hotel.
