“No baths, only showers & no dining”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Get a cheap deal & this is value for money. No low price deal & this isn't great. There's tiny sink unit & microwave as there's no longer any dining (so no B&B) on site. But there is a Wetherspoons pub 15 minutes walk away if you want cooked breakfast. Ensuite is narrow shower unit so big people might struggle. Best thing: soft mattress toppers and it's quite at the back.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with friends

Thank you for your reviews on your stay with us. All our shower units are standard size according to requirements and we do state that there is no food supplement so I apologise for your disappointment. We appreciate all reviews good and bad as they help us to stay at No. 1 in Stevenage as we have been for three years in a row.

Beautiful boutique hotel, really comfy beds, fantastic pillows, lovely touches like the basket of snacks and drinks, toiletries provided and nice towels. Kitchenette within the room including full size fridge and all crockery necessary. I have nothing but the highest praise. SO much nicer than the chain box hotels in the area. Don't think twice, just stay here

Stayed here for a long weekend while visiting son.
Spotlessly clean, great friendly staff, nothing to much trouble.
The little kitchen in the cupboard is ideal, fridge microwave & kettle all you need.
Complimentary basket on arrival with crisps, biscuits, tea,coffee, orange juice was welcome after a long drive. 5 mins walk from Old Town, with loads of places to eat & drink. All at a great price, we will be back.....

Room Tip: Back room are quieter but then again road goes quite after rush hour.

We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. Our room (jungle themed) was absolutely spotlessly clean and warm, the mini kitchen had all that was required for a microwave meal. The complimentary basket contained ample tea, coffee, milk and biscuits with a couple packets of crisps too.
The showers are of an adequate standard size and again scrupulously clean.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Stevenage. We will be back.

Self-catering style room was very cramped and bathroom/shower room clearly designed for a hobbit! All else decent enough, but unlikely to return unless room with more space is available. Disappointing that the limited wardrobe space was further decreased because of storage of a large electric fan, just the thing in a cold, wet winter. I discovered Archways via an internet search for B&B, but beds only are provided and all and any food is self catering. Plenty of parking though. The free wi-fi is a bit erratic and S-L-O-W.

I booked a single and twin room at the Archway Lodge and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation and value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. The mini-kitchen was an added bonus. We will definitely stay there again but take more food next time.

Stayed here in August. with family for a wedding in the old town.Nothing is to much trouble for the owner. The hotel is spotless and parking is free and on site.Breakfast is good and hotel is close to other town amenities.Would definitely stay again if in the area as prices are very competitive with other places in the town.
