Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mags65 Thin duvet
The duvet provided was too thin. I woke at 2am feeling cold, and there were no blankets in the room. At that time of night I was not going down to reception. Luckily as I was the sole occupant I could use the duvet double but if I had been sharing the room, both of us would have been cold. If I come again I will try and remember to bring a sleeping bag.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Masha11 Really friendly and helpful staff
The Holiday Inn at stevenage was a comfortable and relaxing hotel. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The downside was the breakfast which was not good. The croissants were overbaked and inedible, the toast came out black and the cappucino came out black as the machine had run out of milk. We went to a cafe elsewhere for breakfast as we couldnt eat what the hotel provided.
I would stay there again as the staff were woinderful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thomas4 Comments on room availability & breakfast
We arrived at just after 2pm to be given a key for Room 103, having asked for ground floor accessibility. The room was not ready and receptionist then said there were none yet prepared on the ground floor. Having established that there was a lift we settled for Room 426 on the 3rd floor which was of a good standard.
Breakfast appeared to be going well and comprised an adequate choice of basic items until, when going to make two more slices of toast it was found that the slice of bread on top of the heap was extensively green with mould on its reverse side. Attention of staff was drawn to this and apologies were offered. The bread was taken away and (within the kitchen area, apparently changed). The new batch was brought out and, if comment had not been made, was apparently going to be placed in the uncleaned bread receptacle. In view of offered comments this did not happen.
We had, however, already eaten bread from the contaminated bin and were wary that a stomach upset could have been the result. Fortunately this was not the case.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Slightly Dissapointed!
Having stayed here a few years ago I have to say I was slightly disappointed this time round.
When I checked in and went to my room I had a disabled room which I did not book. Reception was great and swapped my room immediately and apologised. Breakfast was very unorganised, not enough food out, no plates, cutlery and queuing was chaos! They need to put a system in place, perhaps two lines. There were near collisions with staff bringing in and out food in the kitchen! Perhaps 2 doors, one for in and one for out would be ideal!
All in all the staff and accommodation was good and I would stay here again. They just need to think about a few things I have mentioned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sci4fun good for a quiet stay
What I like about Hol Inn Express is it's predictable, unfussy and simple to 'bed-in' for the night. I know which toiletries, drinks (tea/coffee) & internet will be provided, so I know what doesn't need carrying; I don't need to clat my luggage with shower gel & shampoo, nor have 3G organised, so it makes taking a quick or last-minute trip simple. Having not had any of that to worry about, getting my head down for thenight is easier, as I've had no stress beforehand. Their Stevenage one is good for sleeping too, as it's quiet, with none or very little road noise depending on which room. An easy walk from the train station - tick. Cheap enough tickets & fast travel into London for day trips - tick; even better value at weekends. Central London is very pricey for hotels, whereas the extra travel to Stevenage from say Moorgate or Finsbury Park is not too bothersome, so it makes the overall deal for me. I will be staying again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by goffy Room Service
We were a little disappointed with the provision of towels for the room.When we arrived the room had two bath and two hand towels which was what we required.However when the room was cleaned in the morning one bath and one hand towel were removed ,so we just had the one bath and one hand left for the two of us which we felt was inadequate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CYPRUSBEACHBUM PLEASANT ROOM AND HELPFUL SERVICE
Comfortable room and bed with tea/coffee making facilities and TV. Hotel is very quiet and relaxing with no disturbing noise and a great help-yourself breakfast every morning. Staff were friendly and efficient and went out of their way to help, without being obtrusive. Hotel is in a great location for shopping, pubs, restaurants and local bus and train services if you are not driving.

I have stayed here at Danestrete on a number of occassions and have always found the staff to be both helpfull and friendly. Service is always excellent.
Some of the rooms are in need of refurbishment, but I cannot say that I have had one yet that was not comfortable.
I will be staying again.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my family and found it to be excellent. The rooms were great for the adults and children, the food was excellent and everywhere was clean. I would say a special thank you to the staff who were most helpful and courteous and a credit to Holiday Inn. This was our second visit and we will certainly be staying again. Thank you!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marky49 Nice hotel and friendly staff
Excellent value and enjoyable stay. Breakfast a little stressful as the hotel was fully booked, although we were warned, but it turned into a bit of a scrum. That said, staff did all they could to make it work.
Otherwise, all good. Would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FEDUPWITH Not one IHG`s finest, Carpets never cleaned
where to start. certain staff sound helpful and make all the right noises but fail to deliver.my room 505 wasn’t cleaned properly for my entire stay ,sure sheets changed every 4 days towels dally .but that’s it carpet was not touched. Bin occasionally emptied so if i had a takeaway the night before it greats you smells and all on your return to room, twice room not serviced at all, Thursdays strangely. sheets and towels left at end of bed
This wouldn’t be so bad had one of the cheery staff had done something after I had complained. But with a smile and a quip each time they said this was terrible and they would speak to the house keeper and said it wouldn’t happen again. until the following day when it did.
No ice machine or microwave access fairly standard in most iHG express hotels
As a type 1 diabetic I had to buy my own fridge, which they kept on my departure, quite adamant I was not to take off site.
also parking bit of a problem parking ticket costs £70 no cheap option for early payment. parking tickets rife in Matalan for overstay as well.
no recognition for IHG MEMBERS

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DDave15 good value rooms
Over all we enjoyed our stay at Danetrete Stevenage,
the room was comfortable with good facilities, although we could not get any sound on the television, a staff member looked at it but could not get it working and was meant to send someone else to look at it, but no one else came.
very limited on site parking which was full on our visit, nearby public car park for guest use, but had trouble exiting car park using token system, not being validated from hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rafi42 just a great hotel
plus points: excellent location - good room - friendly staff
negatives: in-room wifi could be a bit faster and the tv's need a retune as there are a lot more freeview channels around than the epg suggests.
Overall - the best HI Express I've stayed in so far... by some distance!

Stayed one night on return from holiday abroad, very pleased with hotel room and lovely breakfast. On arrival, we were wondering where we would park the car but guests have free parking on the Matalan car park opposite (until 9 am the next day). All in all, another pleasing and reliable night's stay at the HI.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by robnd54 Overall experience??
The staff were great, very helpful, the hotel was generally fine, the room was comfortable, clean and fresh and the stay was affordable, the only aspect which let's this hotel down was the actual planning and car parking facilities, which are non existent! you have to park your vehicle across the road in a small retail park albeit with a hotel notice, but! you must vacate and be out for 9am the next morning, otherwise you'll end up paying a PCN.
Other than that, no real issues whatsoever, I'll go back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sci4fun Fuss-free and Quiet
when staying away on a short hop, the best things I hope for are a fuss-free stay which takes up none of my time in sorting anything out, so I can relax; and my sleep-time being quiet. HI Express Stevenage ticked all the boxes. I'm always worried about quiet sleep-time, especially in a town location, but I'm pleased to say that night-times were silent and I was able to sleep through, with no traffic disturbance. I will be staying again.
