4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

the best point of this hotel is the location: few km away from Stansted Airport; the hotel provides also a bus to Airport for £4,5 every half hour (not too bad!). The room was very nice and has the main comforts you need. Breakfast was not as big as i thought; it was poor (few biscuits and a cappuccino...) It... More

Ok so the decor wasn't to my taste, but I wasn't planning on living there and at least it unique! The beds comfi, it's quiet, I felt safe and it was clean. What more could I ask for! The staff were friendly especially the women who served us. The shuttle service was good and very handy (cost £9 return journey).... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times. The rooms are clean and serve a purpose. The shuttle service to and from airport was on time and both drivers where pleasant,although one was a lot more chatty. I do think some the staff could improve on their customer skills though. Reuben (mgr)and Sarni were very helpful.We did not eat in... More

We booked a twin room at the Desalis Hotel for 7/12/2014 and ended up complaining to the manager. On arrival at the hotel, around midnight, the receptionist told us we had a double room to which we replied that we had booked a twin. She replied, without apology, that there had been a problem with the twin, and this was... More

I have never stayed at such a poor hotel as this in the UK. The room was disgusting. I would not recommend a stay here. The room was in poor repair, hubby said he would rather sleep in the car! Only saving grace was a 5 min drive to airport and the Three horseshoes pub down the road which was... More

The hotel was on the shabby side but that wasn't our main gripe. We stayed one night as we had an early flight; we booked our car into the 'car park' and paid for the hotel's taxi service to go to the airport. This worked well enough although I didn't know we would have to double up with other people... More

Stayed at this hotel as we had a 6am flight out of Stansted. Great location for unsociable flight times, not somewhere I'd stay otherwise. The décor in the lobby and 'restaurant' is impossible to describe, needs to be seen to be believed! A mash-up of every kind of gaudy style imaginable, make sure you get a photo of it! Corridors...

It was a stormy winters eve when my work companion and I arrived. We had been on a quest, a quest of out of town work and our masters had booked us boardings at the De Salis. The sun had set and it was dark outside, darker than lucifers black heart. Our morale was low and after reading the reviews... More

My friend and I stayed in this establishment for one night last week as a stopover on our way to Prague. We were very disappointed! Firstly -- they advertise a pick- up service from the airport -- not available-- get your own taxi-- more expensive than their own!! Check in-- very slow as the poor girl had to do a... More
