Hotel Cromwell, Old Stevenage

Hotel Cromwell Stevenage used to be the farmhouse home of John Thurloe, secretary to Oliver Cromwell. This attractive hotel in Stevenage boasts stylish decor that perfectly complements the character still in evidence from its former times. Nestled in the heart of the old town, it’s the perfect home away from home for both business and leisure travelers.

The hotel is conveniently located close to the A1. London’s Kings Cross Station is only a
27-minute train ride away from Stevenage Station, which is just 1 mile from the hotel.
