Upon arrival at around 7pm we thought that the place seemed decent. We checked in, the young lad on reception was helpful. Went to order from a set menu- thank god! I was starving. Options were very limited so being an allergy sufferer I could only eat what I knew. We asked the girl on reception what ingredients were in the main courses and she just looked blankly. So I opted for Garlic bread.
As we were a coach party we had a set time to eat at 830. Service was very slow, and at 930 we were still waiting for food to arrive. (I reccomend the hotel purchases an additional microwave) The waiting staff brought the meals out one at a time.
The meal was special- with the added ingredient of hair. Yum. As I was so hungry after my three bits of overcooked garlic bread, I had a twix from the vending machine.
We resided to our room eventually about 950pm. The room was of comfort and quiet. Bit of noise from the above room but this stopped after a few minutes.
Went for breakfast at 7am, service was much better (as it was self service) Yet another hair found on 'clean' plates.
More choice than dinner. However, no bacon. (If you struggle to find microwaveable bacon Holiday Inn Express I think Walls produce them)
So if you do wish to stop/are placed at HI Express Stevenage take a bit of extra cash as I believe there is a Weatherspoons around the corner.
