Our bed and room were both very comfortable and there was a shuttle in the morning at the right time. The reception area is slightly unusual with the ambiance of a self service cafeteria and the staff we encountered were not exactly warm and fuzzy but not rude. We didn't eat here as we arrived by taxi from Stanstead airport... More

We stayed at this hotel last year and were amazed at the poor reviews it has had this year. We now know why. The room was fine for one night but the car parking facilities are not good. Last year the car stayed at the hotel and it wasn't a problem. This year when we arrived the car park was... More

We stayed here for one night prior to a flight from Stansted. We had previously stayed here several times with no problems. However on this occasion I was not happy with the parking arrangements. We paid for 15 nights parking and were aware that the car may be moved to a secure compound if the hotel was particularly busy. In... More

Stayed here after a flight to Stansted. Unfortunately there is no shuttle and taxis are a tenner. We had to go back to the airport to take a train in the morning so add an extra £20 on to your stay if you're doing the same. The hotel itself is pretty cool and quirky looking. The reception and bar area... More

Very convenient to Stansted Airport. It was clean, basic, at a reasonable price. The manager didn't crack a smile - ever. There is a basic restaurant in the hotel and nothing else close by. Dinner was simple, filling, and not too expensive. We had the pizza which was good. The advertised airport shuttle was not available. So we booked a... More

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
