The Lamex Stadium has 2 impressive looking all seater stands to the South and West of the stadium. The other two are all standing and the East terrace is particularly steep and very well sized for this level of the game. All stands are covered and offer unobstructed views (which is rare in the lower leagues) and the facilities inside are very good.
Visiting supporters are situated in the all seated South stand behind one of the goals and from here you'll enjoy a fantastic unobstructed view of the playing surface. The leg room, facilities and refreshments afforded inside are very good as you'd expect from a relatively new ground. The low roof also allow for a good atmosphere to be generated.
Lamex Stadium seating plan:
There is a lovely Club House at the ground which welcomes in both home and away fans. This is the best bet mainly as there's very little else in the viable local vicinity to walk to. Inside the club bar you'll find a selection of hot and cold food and drink along with a big screen tv. Back up the road from the stadium is a Business Park that has a few food outlets such as McDonalds and Pizza Hut if you fancy getting something more substantial before or after the game.
Parking is available at the stadium if you arrive early enough and it's free of charge. There isn't a huge amount of street parking but you shouldn't need to look for anywhere else to park as the official car park seems to run smoothly on the way in and also on the way out after the final whistle.

Travel: We drove from Maidstone to Stevenage. Nice easy drive, and ample parking when we got there. No issues getting a space.
Refreshments: The ground is situated on an industrial estate and we didn't spot any pubs nearby. We stopped for a quick pint on the way home in nearby Knebworth instead. The bar at the ground isn't the worst by any means for a pre-game drink.
Impressions: Typical league 2 stadium - quite large and very well run. You approach the ground and it's on the side of a main road. It's impressive from the side you enter, under the main stand and as you enter it's a really nice little stadium. Seeing as we were a non league club visiting a professional team in the third round of the FA Cup, we were there to make noise and bought a capacity away support with banners, balloons, confetti and flags so we were pretty boisturous throughout. To be fair to Stevenage, who had a non-league team visiting them (never thrilling for bigger team) they made a decent amount of noise. The main fan base was the opposite end to us and to be fair, we were so thrilled to be playing outside of Kent, we were always going to make a lot more noise than they were.
Facilities: Toilets were effectively porta potties. Certainly nothing glamorous. Bar was decent and fans mixed happily before the game. Our stand was spacious and fit a large amount of us in behind the goal, and every member of staff was friendly and helpful.
Exit: The main car park is in a field on the opposite side of the road to the ground. There's only one exit for 250/300 cars so it took quite a while to leave. In a field also, we had to dodge the puddles and mud to get to our car right at the back - bear this in mind if you're someone who looks wearing their best clothes to the football...
Enjoy: The Lamex is a great League 2 ground. I've been to better but i've also certainly been to worst! Maybe park away from the ground and walk to it if you want a pub, some food and want to avoid the mud.
