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!
