Stayed in the Desalis for one night prior to an early flight the following day at Stansted airport. I have stayed at many airport hotels, including those situated nearby at Stansted, and know what to expect. I'm not one to complain, and on most occasions I attempt to find the good in all places I stay, however, on this occasion... More

This hotel has so much potential, but our visit was not great at all. We booked for one night due to an early morning flight from stansted. The airport pick up and drop off was quick and easy.... but this shouldn't be 10euros because its so close! I'm thinking a taxi might have been cheaper! Its just far enough that... More

Booked online for 1 night. I was leaving the next morning from Stansted. Arrived by train from Derby, after visiting British relatives. It wasn't clear I had to inform the hotel when I was arriving for a shuttle pick up. Airport info man let me know. I was able to call them and got a speedy pick up from Prince,... More

After reading previous reviews we are a little apprehensive however the hotel and staff were great, We arrived late at 10.45pm and the restaurant was due to close at 11. The staff were happy to serve us and we had two great pasta dishes which were fresh hot and tasty and generous portion sizes. With wine the bill came to... More

After reading some reviews some people had put on about this hotel we were a bit worried about staying, but it's a super place and the car parking and transfers to and from the airport were fantastic. They could do with a decent manager for the bar/restaurant, as they don't seem to have much organisation there, food was nice, but... More

This hotel has all the potential to be a nice stay but in reality is a complete mess and requires a complete overhaul both physically and in regards to customer service. My partner and I stayed on the night of the 8th May 2015. My first issue is that we were not offered help with luggage. This is the first... More

Used this hotel the night before flying out of Stansted Airport. Hadn't realised they had a hotel and parking deal - I would use this in the future. Rooms good and basic breakfast available early with a bigger breakfast available later.

Reading the reviews I wonder if we stayed at the same hotel. On our arrival the receptionist was pleasant checked us in told us about the airport shuttle service and booked the time we wanted. Decoration of the hotel is a bit odd but we do not all have the same tastes. Room was clean and bed was ok. I... More

At the entrance it suggested it was a four star hotel, I would be very generous if I gave it one star! Reviews from Owain G, SGT-13, and Civilservice, took the words out of my mouth! Of course there were more dissatisfied customer comments but that would have taken hours to mention them all! There were no bedside lights, it... More
