Normal Holiday Inn Express hotel, good bus connection but charged 3 pound each way. Dinner was OK but service very slow, they did not appear to have enough staff. My pudding took so long to come that they gave it to me for free. Good breakfast buffet with hot food.

We use this hotel every time we fly from Stansted. It's really good value, clean, tide, food is generally okay. It's what you expect from IHG. Consistent and repeatable and you know what you are getting for your money.

Stayed here on a Sunday night before flying early in the morning! Good and clean with a great bar and restaurant - you can run a tab but can't charge to your room. Rooms are a good size and the hotel is far enough from the airport to be quiet. I would request a room opposite side to car park... More

Booked for one night en route to Europe having stayed at this chain of hotels at both Southampton and Watford in past years, both of which were very pleasant experiences, This hotel very disappointing. 99.9% of the staff are foreign with many no idea of how a good hotel should work. Firstly we were put at one of the farthest... More

Shocking experience at this hotel. Huge queues of people checking in and complaining. Our two rooms ( one of them a family room) could not have been further apart! One room smelt of musty stale water and drains that has infiltrated all of our clothing and bags. I was offered another room and told it was for a disabled person.... More

Specifically chose this hotel as it was a good price and included breakfast. The check-in was a little slow. Room was ok and relatively a comfortable nights sleep. The next morning we went to the breakfast room just before 5am. Every table was dirty and full of used plates and just one lady trying to run around tidying the place.... More
