After reading the reviews we expected to walk into the pits of despair! We arrived and were blown away by how big the room was! Absolutely HUGE (jacuzzi room). The manager however was really abrupt and rude. Our friend had driven us for almost 3 hours to the hotel, we asked if he could come in our room and just... More

Hotel communal areas felt more like a youth hostel than a hotel. Room was basic but clean and comfortable. The staff however at this hotel are seriously rude ... especially the receptionist and taxi shuttle drivers. Ok for a cheap, cheap room for a night before / after a flight.

First clue was taxi driver who says "don't hear many good things about that place!" It's cheap and shabby, tv never worked and instructions in Polish, shower collapsed and pan overflowed, lights not working, cheap bedding smelt bad, pillows like cardboard and the first hotel I ever used without a single coat hanger. Meal had to be returned, absolutely Inedible...... More

Stayed at this hotel before an early morning flight from Stansted. The room I had was large, clean and comfortable. Complimentary tea, coffee and toiletries, and free and efficient Wi-Fi. The bathroom was large with both bath and shower facilities. My room just less than £50 for the night. The food was reasonably priced and while not Cordon bleu was... More

Our flight arrived late so this was an easy option in order to get an early train home in the morning. Taxis to and from Stansted are £10.50. When we arrived, the man on reception acted as though we had interrupted him during dinner and rudely kept asking me what my name was as he couldn't find our reservation. He... More

The front entrance looked promising, but that was it. A salesman had booked and prepayd this hotel for us, because of our early flight from Stansted the day after. Weird decor and filthy restrooms. We arrived on what looked like a quiet afternoon, only to fiend our booking mixed up. The man in the reception couldnt find one of our... More
