On arrival at the hotel the person on Reception said that he wasn't sure if he had received the on-line booking from Booking.com so he asked for my phone so he could see the confirmation email. I was given Room No 20 and the door lock was faulty and although I complained I was told I had to play around...

To echo other reviews, very strange place. Was spotlessly clean on our visit, rooms and communal areas alike.. Didn't go for breakfast.. it pushed the room price up 22 quid despite the card in room saying it only 8 quid! Poor maths on the receptionists part I feel. The interior of the bar is like something from a 1970s cruise...

Upon arrival, the receptionist took my payment and then as we were beginning to walk up the stairs she stopped us to make a point of "no parties or additional guests", which we both found rather strange! By which she meant that she anticipated that we might be wanting to invite a house of guests round to our hotel room...

First night I.was.freezing cold but was told.this was because the radiator wasn't switched on. Probably should have checked it very late arrival and just fell into bed. Maybe the room should be...

Hmm. I had the "dial 200" treatment at reception and found it a bit quirky, but to be fair the room was ok, the tv and kettle and ensuite facilities worked, (shame the free wifi didn't though). I was surprised there was no restaurant for an evening meal onsite, but fortunately it's only a short walk to the old town....

The hotel is very closed to station. and also very closed to the town centre. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and everything worked fine. The breakfast was very good with lots of choice. There was a cooked breakfast too which my girlfriend really loved. Would recommend this hotel to stay and look forward to come...

Home from home. I stayed at the Gate Hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is 5 minute walk from Stevenage train station and a 2 minutes walk to the high street, which has a great selection of restaurants. I found the Gate Hotel very easy to find situated in a very quite street. When I arrived at the hotel. I...
