I have stayed in a few of the 'budget' hotels around the airport and this is by far the best I have found so far. I wasn't particularly impressed by having to pay £8 to park overnight (in our case for less than 8 hours), but really that would be my only moan. We stayed on a Sunday night which... More

This was our second stay at HI Express Stansted and it held up well with our first visit. On reception we were checked in by a chap who it was clear hadn't worked there for very long. Check in took in a bit longer than usual subsequently but this wasn't an issue as he was assisted by his fellow front... More

We had booked a room and parking here for the night before our trip as we had a very early start. Unfortunately German Wings pilots decided on strike action and our anniversary trip was cancelled. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and flexible for us. The manager Fiona kindly rebooked us the following night so we... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express the night before an early flight from Stansted. Everything you need from an airport hotel, clean, excellent service, reasonable restaurant/bar. Quiet comfortable room. Breakfast served from 4am. Parking is extra but cheaper than the other options. Frequent shuttle bus (£3 each way)

The price was very competitive, it also offers a shuttle bus to and from Stansted (£3.00 there and £3.00 back). I think it went off either stand 28 or 29 (not certain). The main eating area was very pleasant and the drinks and food were reasonably priced as is not always the case @this type of hotel. The rooms were... More

Not bad if you have to spent a night at the airport, but the wifi doesn't work so good and it is a big problem here in the middle of nowhere! The restaurant is too busy, but the staff work hard. It is very clean. I think that all this hotel are the same.

Thank you for your feedback. Whilst I am sorry you had problems with the WIFI I am pleased to see the great comment about our team. During peak times the restaurant can get busy but we are continually looking for ways to improve the restaurant system and all reviews empower us to focus on those key areas for improvement. Kind...

Booked a stay with parking, price reasonable seeing as the long stay carpark alone would have cost not much less. The check in was easy, staff very pleasant, drinks prices not a rip off like some chain hotels, and meals adequate rather than cordon bleu but were reasonably reasonably priced. The room was clean and well equipped, but suffered from... More

We recently stayed here overnight, which we purchased online as a "mystery" hotel deal. We found the initial reception check-in service slow, even though there appeared to be four or more behind the desk. Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet even though we overlooked major roads and works. Evening meal here good and not overly priced. Also the... More
