For a stop and sleep before a flight, this hotel does fine. Check in was fairly quick, you can book a shuttle bus for £5 to near the terminal. Room was in a good clean condition. Mattress is in need of replacement, a mattress topper was their cheap fix to that. Bathroom is clearly in need of redoing. Wifi is... More

Not a very nice hotel, receptionist couldn't understand English very well. The room was really outdated and WIFI was really poor. Wouldn't stay here again. Says 4 stars but I'd say 2 at best. Bar wasn't open and the reception area was really cold and smelt musty.

Stayed for 1 night as a stopover between customers at opposite ends of the country. The room was average, nothing special but nothing particularly bad. However the wifi only reaches public areas and is of questionable quality, so as a business user, i 100% do not recomend this hotel. The main bar area is again, alright, but nothing special, and...

Room stayed at: Executive room (from hell) The hotel poses as a four star hotel but clearly it needs at least three stars knocked down. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Not only was the shuttle an hour late to pick me up, but there are no trolleys at the hotel for all your baggage. Just... More

Stayed 1 night as I had an early flight out. Was terribly confused by how to get there, so just paid for a Taxi (£10.50 from the 24/7 taxi stand in arrivals). Reception was friendly on arrival and check in was easy. Room was large with a nice big TV and heaps of channels. There was a power point next... More

£5 for Taxi to Hotel so its close to Stansted airport which is convenient, Hotel offers same price curtsey taxi but it drops you at the Radisson Bleu Hotel and then you have to walk to the terminal! Staff were polite but not friendly and quite hard work. Room was clean & tidy but very dated Restaurant is very limited,... More

Stayed here for just one night, and must admit the room was clean and very spacious. The bed was quite comfortable but a little squeaky when moving on it. A couple stains on the carpet and the bathroom looked like a renovation was well due. But it all worked and done the job for the night. I didn't need to... More

Not located at the place they state on Google maps. Thats the place where to shuttle pic you up. On the way there the shuttle drove around in the middle of nowhere to drop off 2 other guys at one of their other hotels which took over 20min so dont expect a "5min drive". Not sure if you even can... More

The hotel itself was nice, the room was big, everything was clean and comfortable. It's just really not worth that much money if you also count the transfer. I was also really annoyed with the wifi, it didn't work in my room. It's almost 2016! I really think that's something that can be easily fixed and should work right. The... More

We arrived after a long drive from the north east. Room was extremely large with everything you could ask for. Beautiful furniture and a very inviting large comfortable bed. The room was decorated perfectly and the bathroom was just as large. Fabulous nights sleep before an early morning flight. The hotel restaurant was just as amazing with the food we... More
