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

The room looked okay, but had some major problems. The shower seemed stuck on boiling hot and I couldn't adjust the temperature. That was after I worked out how to turn it on - all the symbols for the different jets had rubbed off the dial so it was a matter of scalding trial and error. There was also an... More

There are hedges on the road to this hotel, where I would prefer to sleep. The front rooms are verminous, and two young ladies who were at the desk compplaining that their bed was full of ants were offered a tin of ant powder! They held their ground fortunately, and insisted on a room on the other side of the... More

I've stayed here before but had the misfortune of been booked in again !!! What a joke of a place with parking that can only be discribed ,I hope I see my car again in one piece! The rooms are nothing like the photos in the website and are disgusting in cleanliness. The hotel is run on a low budget... More
