The staff were rude; the rooms and furniture were falling apart; the floors were dirty, especially the stairs and dirty towels were found left under beds. The toilet brush holder was full of 'dirty' water, it was close to town, but we were made to pay before seeing the room. Please don't stay here, I could not wait to leave.

I couldn't agree more with these terrible reviews as me and my ex boyfriend had a very similar experience when we were staying in the bed and breakfast. The room was dirty and dusty, the staff were rude to my boyfriend telling him to hurry up with his breakfast on the morning we checked out and on top of that... More

Had to go to Stevenage for work with a colleague, could not get into Stevenage hotels so booked two rooms here. Very basic rooms and not very clean, hot water in bathroom was tepid, my colleagues shower tray overflowed when you tried to use it. The staff were indifferent and made out that they did not understand us, we had... More

Staff were very rude and ignorant, they even started having a conversation about us in their own language in front of us after we complained how dirty our room was and refused to sleep there. Never received a refund and will never return to this hell hole. Terrible business, they need shutting down!

I arrived at the Garden Lodge Hotel, and ordered a takeaway. They said it would be 15 minutes so I waited. It was almost 40 minutes before my food was ready, but it was still hot when I got home, and tasted delicious. I have not stayed in the hotel, but I would recommend eating at the Garden Lodge hotel,... More

We've been going here for years but for various reasons haven't been for a few months. Not sure what's happened in the meantime but new staff, poor service, no atmosphere and worst of all was luke warm, bland food with a regular 'pinging' of the microwave being a bit of a clue. Sadly, we'll not be returning.

This is our local Indian takeaway and we always think the food is very good. May be we get extra good food because they know us but we have no complaints. They will add extra chilli if we ask for it. We always use it.

I have travelled extensively over 50 years and by a street, this is the worst 'hotel' I have ever had the mis-fortune of visiting. But for the fact I had paid for two nights before I saw the room, I would have left. In no particular order: Shower didn't work, [but to be fair, a young lad got it going... More

The team behind Letchworth’s Garden Lodge Hotel seem to know just what us Brits want – traditional English countryside styling and good, spice-laden Indian food. And that’s exactly what you get at Spice Garden, the restaurant open to the public as well as paying guests. Behind the olde worlde whitewash and slate roofed exterior you’ll find a dining room with a hint of the colonial about it. Swagged curtains frame the windows while white dressed tables are lined with dark wood chairs while greenery bursts forth from all corners. Look to the menu and you’ll find an extensive selection of favourite Indian dishes including exciting tandoori sizzlers.
