We stayed here for one night as it had a car parking system. When we returned 2 weeks later & called hotel for their taxi to come and pick us up, we were told he would be with us in 10minutes. 25 minutes later we called again to be told he was there, he clearly wasn't as we were waiting... More

I have to admit I booked this hotel because it was the cheapest even taking into account the bus transfer charge and wish to god I had paid the extra for a decent hotel, My partner and I arrived about 8.30pm as we decided to eat on our way to the hotel. When we arrived we were asked if we... More

Saw the reviews of this hotel before departing off on our journey to Madrid. I was extremely concerned so rang the hotel to confirm that the parking was secure (my husband had just purchased a new car) I was assured that it was. On arrival found a spot to park with no problem but the parking IS chaotic as per... More

Despite booking and receiving confirmation of my room, I arrived back after a very long day to be told there were no rooms. Reception closes at 1..which is a joke for an airport hotel. I had to drive home after a 22 hour day as "as there was nothing they could do for me". I was mot alone..another customer had... More

This is okay if you are just looking for a bed for an early flight, do not eat here or if you do please be prepared to send it back. Its not very often that you go to a restaurant and every table is sending back their food (5 tables in total, whilst we were there) On the upside the... More

Recently used hotel, parking can only be described as chaotic and cars everywhere ! No more secure than parking on the street, on arrival there were no spaces therefore waited some time before one became free. We were expected to leave the car keys in a large pile on the reception desk as there letterbox was full and no staff... More

We arrived Sunday 22nd June late afternoon. We were lucky that we found a parking space at the front of hotel. When you enter the hotel the reception is tucked away I a corner. It was a hot day, we asked if they supplied water in the room, but was told no and was charged £1.50 per small bottle of... More

Thought it was a good idea to stay and get the free car parking. BIG mistake. On arrival you are told to drive round and find a parking spot. We spent 20 minutes driving between badly parked vehicles and down rutted tracks, into the woods they use to park. Everything so tightly packed that you risk getting your car damaged... More

I have stayed in places that had poor reviews before and they have turned out to be O.K. but in this case all the poor reviews are right. Listen to them and pay more and go elsewhere. When we arrived they had us booked into a single room when in fact we had booked a double, luckily I had my... More

We booked a room and parking here to make our journey to Stanstead easier, we wish we hadn't. Our room was horrid, cockroaches, stains all over the floor (looked like blood stains) and a weird burnt iron mark near the bed. The staff couldn't speak a word of English and our car was covered in bird poo when we collected... More
