Small room with no wi-fi connection, bed was OK, the room was clean, but not to a high standard, bed OK. Free breakfast again all OK, no bacon and the sausages were not very nice, service OK and staff friendly. We got a package that included parking, this all worked fine apart from the £9 each way charged by fairly... More

It is really apalling the way that some UK hotel chains treat their customer, especially considering the price of hotels in the UK compared to the continent. We were treated like animals at the reception desk waiting for 30 minutes at 1 am in the morning to check in. The hotel staff did not make any effort to sicerely apologised!

Reception staff were pleasant. Room was clean and the bed comfortable. Shower room compact. Breakfast poor. Only a stopover so perfectly adequate - and that is what most people do at Stansted I guess.

Holiday Inn Express at Stansted was excellent in every way except for the mysterious lack of WiFi connection. The room complete with large bed was comfortable, the restaurant served excellent food and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was a good place to relax and prepare for a journey to some other part of the world ... in... More

Close to the airport, but no walking access plus you have to pay £3 extra for the shuttle bus which was overcrowded, under 15's go free but take all the seats for the paying adults. Signs up outside asking guests to keep the noise down between 10pm - 6am, same they don't tell the bus driver as he starts the... More

This hotel isn't perfect but was adequate for a pre-flight stop over. The rooms are looking a little dated but again fine for what we paid. The lady on reception was helpful and polite. One advantage is its only a minute from the mid stay car park which was helpful for us.

Good place if you need a hotel for your flight connection from Stansted. If you are in group it's cheaper to take a taxi which costs 8 GBP taken from the airport instead of the bus transfer which cost 3 GBP pp. Avoid the breakfast which is terrible. The rooms are quite comfortable and clean, so for single night it's... More

The service here was poor especially after we discovered they had charged us twice for 1 nights stay, we spoke to the hotel, sent a bank statement to prove it and in the end we had to get the refund via the bank with no apology. Shocking service!
