Wanted a overnight stay with a couple of nights parking and it gave just that. Room was of usual HIE standard with a comfy bed fantastic powerful shower. We didnt eat evening meal but did enjoy the 'earlybird' breakfast served from 4am - which was a great idea for the early risers. All staff we encountered were very polite and...

The room was so dark it was like a dungeon but it still couldn't hide the nasty stains on the bedding, carpet and in the bathroom. The light breakfast before 6 am wasn't worth showing up for. I only had a coffee but it was powdery and repeated on me for the rest of the day. My second stay at...

Stayed here for a night as I was flying early the next morning. The room was clean and spacious. Check in was slow but I guess it can be busy when the shuttle bus arrives at the same time. Breakfast was a let down the bread rolls were hard and stale like the only hot food was beans, sausage and...

This hotel is in a good location if you need somewhere with easy access to the airport. The courtesy bus runs every half hour, but beware it is actually £3 per person each way. We were in a group of 5 and a taxi was £11 from the airport rather than the £15 we paid on the bus. Unfortunately the...

The only positive side is the location - good only if you have a flight next morning and need to stay for one night. Otherwise - Terrible WIFI and 3/4G connection is really poor. Breakfast is under average. Hotel is old and staff was not friendly or maybe they were tired.

So some of us may have had an idea that Holiday Inns were basic - Think Again! This one is really comfortable, decent sized rooms and good en suite facilities (they provide shower gel and liquid soaps so you don't need to unpack all of yours). Breakfast was included and as we left early, it was the Continental version but...

This place is a joke! They cannot even cook a Pizza, the Chicken is advertised as 'Rotisserie', watch cook and go brown and crispy. That I'd a lie. It comes out, without any skin and has so obviously been cooked earlier in terms day and then warmed for.your plate, a very dangerous exercise. The furniture in the lobby and so...

Adequate and functional hotel about 3 minutes' drive from Stansted terminal. Secure car park (payable at reception's discretion if you're a guest). Staff were extremely professional and courteous. Bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in, shame it was only for 4 hours. Continental breakfast was very basic and bakery had not been served (it was 4:30am). However,...

We arrived few hours before check in time but they still gave us a room and took our luggage until next day. The hotel has all the basics you will need perfectly arranged (shower,bed,wifi,tv) everything really clean including common areas.
