This place is a shambles. I stay in lots of hotels, and I rarely get a really bad one. The DeSalis has only one thing going for it - its relatively close proximity to Stanstead. There were so many issues it was ridiculous: 1. We were given the keys to an already occupied room. Rather than apologising the front of... More

Having to catch a very early flight to Tallinn we decided to stay here as parking was included. Having driven over three hours from Swansea we were looking forward to settling in and having a couple of drinks. We checked in and headed to our room and entered to find it already occupied! Luckily the guests were out. We were... More

Was on night shifts at the airport so booked this hotel as nearby. When I rang up initially they were not helpful in catering to my night shift pattern. I.e no leniency on paying extra to check in earlier or check out later on my last night shift so I can sleep longer. When I checked in they were not... More

strange hotel, the art work in the main reception is a bit odd. The bathroom was in a terrible state of affairs, it was dirty and very scruffy, poor tiling etc. it was clear that it hadn't been cleaned properly

I stayed here with two friends before flying out of Stansted on an early flight. We all agreed it was an extremely strange place and we would not want to return. On arrival we were quite abruptly told we would have to pay extra for our car parking. When we advised we had an email to say this was not... More

Never ever use holiday extras again, freezing room, no heating, and holiday extras lived up to their name as everything was extra, from paying £60 from the website it finally totalled over £120 because they say parking included it is not, no beer on draught and bar made the local working men's club look like the Hilton, first bad review...

Without any doubt this establishment has the title of being the worst hotel I have ever almost stayed in. I booked this hotel as we had an early flight from Stanstead and on arriving at 10pm was informed that the hotel was full and would i mind moving to a partner hotel 'of exactly the same quality' with 'a free...

Stayed for an early flight to Italy. Service was fine, food was pleasant and served quickly, at a good value and healthy portion! We arrived late in the evening but they were happy to cook food regardless. They have an in-house taxi shuttle that took us at the crack of thump in morning and collected us promptly when we called... More

This cannot be described as a hotel. Yes, there are rooms, but little else in the way of facitlities. On arrival our we were amazed by the decor!!! I cannot quite find words to describe the combination of poor wall art, eastern soft furnishing and 1960's furniture. Our booking could not be traced for some time. We rather reluctantly left...
