Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnB13 A WARM WELCOME VAND A GREAT STAY
My first visit to this hotel and I was impressed from the moment of arrival. Check in was efficient and could not have been more warm or friendly. Hotel design and decor was excellent, as was the room. Breakfast was superb. As with all Holiday Inns the choice of drinks for a beer drinker like me was limited. Overall, an excellent experience. I will certainly visit again.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sasha007 Convenient location, not so convenient prices!
Stayed at this hotel as we were going to Sonisphere. It was ideally located and beats camping! Only problem with staying in a hotel when there's a massive rock festival on is that the prices are then massively inflated!
Can't fault the hotel itself in its facilities and staff and I would have no problem recommending friends to stay in any Holiday Inn. Just watch out for the prices if there's a big event on nearby!

I spent two nights here whilst visiting London I had never stopped at a Holiday Inn and was very impressed.
I will be staying in Holiday Inns again for sure!

Decor drab, room small, but staff friendly and internet at last much improved. A wider choice of pillows as recently offered at another Hotel chain would be nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redhotjag Great service and friendly staff but over priced
The hotel is really nice, very modern, comfortable and clean. All the staff were really friendly and welcoming and the ladies on the front desk were really helpful. I would highly recommend breakfast which offered good variety and excellent quality (Tip: pay for breakfast upfront).
As we stayed during the Sonisphere festival, the prices were quite inflated and for this reason I felt that I had overpaid for a room which would have been 50% cheaper if not for the festival.
Regarding the bed, in my personal opinion, I found the mattress too hard and this for me was the only let down for this hotel, otherwise it was an excellent experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ptylor Nice but expensive.
Although the room itself was very nice. The restaurant was very over priced. That said I opted for the burger that was incredibly tasty, so can't fault how good the food was. Just the price was a bit over the top sadly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sagittar A Modern Hotel
The hotel is centrally situated in the new town of Stevenage. Inside the lobby is of fresh, modern appearance, as are the rooms, with wide corridors that help to ameliorate the usual hotel functionalism. Unfortunately, check-in & general service was poorly organised, slow & mildly careless. By contrast, the waiting staff at dinner were attentive & efficient & the menu & quality of cooking was excellent. At breakfast the rather lax attitude was emerged again. Beyond taking a room number & bringing rather cool coffee, the staff seemed more interested in their own concerns than the guests & it took some time to attract attention to get more (slightly hotter) coffee. Although no upgrade was available, I was given a family room which was comfortable contemporary & well-designed. The strangest hotel offer I have encountered took the form of a card headed, "Why drink water?" which offered a free glass of wine with a meal in the restaurant. Anyone who does not drink alcohol would be disappointed if they asked for water as a substitute on the grounds that the answer to "Why drink water?" is "Because it's better for you!" Oh, well, so much for the Sevenage Temperance Union!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ade77 Good but disappointed.
I generally stay with the Holiday Inn Express and find them excellent for a buisiness user. The Holiday inn was good and of a similar standard but with the express brand, you get free wifi, free parking and free breakfast which was not the case with the holiday inn. I did not dine in the restaurant as it looked over priced, I chose to dine elsewhere instead, even the drinks were more expensive than elsewhere. The reveiw may sound negative which would be unfair because everything else was to the usual IHG great standard . The Express is literally just around the corner so I think that would be a better option value for money wise.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Topi Room OK, TV prank
Room was OK. I didn't like the green light that could not be turned off, though.
Probably the previous occupant made a prank: remote control of TV did not work (no batteries?) and at 6:30 there was an alarm. For me it didn't work since I was too tired to watch TV and due to jet lag, I woke up before 6:30 anyway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Better than average but not great
Since I constantly get requested to leave my feedback, here it is:
I spend a high number of night in this hotel recently which does already give an indication that for myself it is acceptable to stay.
Other hotels are not that lucky.
Overall I must admit that I feel good to be sour rounded with capable personal, some of them simply blessed with great sense of hospitality.
Having said that, there is a minor disadvantage. Being not only platinum member myself, the ambassador level comes on top of that. The distinction is simple as per regulation a room must be available if requested 72 hours in advance as well as it must be upgraded (Ambassador).
Due to popularity it seems both are not a given and most of the time not granted.
Furthermore I even got walked out one night, which got handled very well by the staff in charge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stokeybird Stay here all the time, home from hem but a few niggles
I stay all the time but recently the wifi signal is really poor, it's great you have it as a bonus but it's no use if it's so poor you can't do anything more than send an email. After 10pm it's better but too late.
Also, you advertise to have bits you might forget, I have forgotten a razor several times and you never have any.
Finally, please can you get shower gel ? You provide bath foam only as shower gel in rooms with no baths !
As I said niggles ! Staff are lovely, rooms are clean, comfortable and usually quiet ( unless you get a con joining room and then you can hear someone snoring next door ) food is nice too,
once you've stayed a couple of times you get over the parking over the road !

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tortangtalong modified room reservation
according to my e-mail an executive room is reserved for me, but when i arrived at the hotel i was informed by the receptionist that i book a standard room & if i want to be upgraded i have to pay £20.00. i was totally disappointed when i look at my e-mail that my room was modified. the receptionist cannot explain to me clearly why i was upgraded them downgraded. she then gave us a standard room with a bath because the first room she gave us is shower only. this is the first time this happened to me in my 7 years of membership in the ihg club. i was so embarrassed by this experience. i hope that this modification will not happen again.

Ok, so this hotel isn't in the best position (next to 4 lanes of traffic and a fire station) however, it is an excellent stop over prior to traveling into London and it isn't noisy!. The town is just through a subway and there is a big leisure park nearby with a good range of eateries. Nice staff.

Generally good, but a few 'loose ends'
- not for the first time I said to the receptionist "if that were my shower I'd be setting about it with a plunger"
- I've seen thinner slices of toast than the smoked salmon on the breakfast buffet

I would like to thank the members of staff who moved there cars so that I could park at the hotel as part of my executive room deal. On the night in question there was a function on & cars were palked in every available place. Previously I have had issues with the cleanliness of my room but everything was fine this time. Thank you
