“Great accommodation at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Have stayed here on 2 occasions for 3 nights at a time in a family room. The hotel is really good value and I wouldn't bother looking for an alternative in Stevenage unless I was planning a luxury blow-out.

The rooms are very clean with nice decor that is not 'in your face' or as basic as the colour schemes in most budget hotels. During the winter months, the rooms have been nice and warm. There is ample room and no difficulties parking.

Each room is equipped with a fridge, kettle and microwave which was perfect for us with a young baby. There is wifi available and we didn't have any problems getting online although it can be a bit sluggish when everyone's in during the evening.

It's close to the old town which means you can walk to a variety of shops and restaurants without any difficulties and it's easily accessible from the A1 and not hard to find.

The staff are all really friendly and helpful.
The only drawbacks are i, the place doesn't do breakfast which could put some people off if you absolutely have to have toast or a cooked breakfast - however, there is a sainsburys cafe a short hop up the road and ii) the towels are very small and a bit tired but you could take your own.

A very simple but great hotel. When i arrived i was greeted by a very nice chap who simply told me where things where, took my payment and showed me to the room. This is all that was needed. The room was just the right size - no cat swinging but about the same space as your bedroom at home, less the large wardrobes. All very clean and well presented too. There is no restaurant providing meals of any sort but this suited me perfectly. Instead all the rooms are provided with a Fridge, Microwave, Kitchen sink and plates etc. You also get the usual tea and coffee as well as a couple of free snacks and orange juice. Extra tea etc. is avaiable for you to help yourself near reception too. As a female travelling alone the last thing i really want to do is venture out to sit in a restaurant on my own. I took a microwave meal for 1 cooked it and ate in my room whilst watching a bit of telly. There is a sainsbury's just down the road so you could easily grab something from there rather than carry something with you. This also means that no breakfast is provided but again i just took a pain au chocolate and heated it in the microwave. Not everyones idea of great but suited my needs perfect on this occasion. Don't worry about food smells in the room either. There were no unpleasent smells from the previous guest. As the microwave is hidden in a cupboard it seems to stiffle the smells. This hotel would be great for people who do want to venture out as you are very near to Stevenage old town and as there is no breaky you don't have to get up too early to get it. Settle for a brunch after you have left instead. Most of us only eat the breakfast because it comes as part of the deal rather than because we actually want it - especially mid week. I also had a room with free wifi so i spent my time catching up on emails etc. Check out is easy too. As you can't charge anything to the room you just post your key on the way out. If i do need to go back to Stevenage i would stay here again.

Room Tip: A room on the second floor may have a little less noise as floor boards are a little creeky. Nothing...

Myself and my girlfriend were desperately looking for Stevenage hotels for Sonisphere Festival 2011, taking place at Knebworth nearby. all the big chain hotels were too expensive and we were lucky to find Archways.

When we arrived we were greated by the incredibly friendly owners of the hotel, who really went that bit extra to make you feel welcome and special. They did everything they could to make our stay better.

The room was perfect for our needs, with our own room in the lodge at the back of the main hotel. Tea, cofee, television, even a microwave! We even got a free lift to the train station on the morning we left!

No complaints at all, and am worried about putting up such a positive posting as we're worried we won't be able to get in next year!
