I just needed a nights stay in a hotel near Stansted airport before catching a bus in the airport the next morning. We arrived really late, at 11.30, but still the receptionist was happy to collect us just outside the Radisson Blu hotel. And drop us off the next morning at 7.30... the only issue that I would change slightly...

I stayed in this excellent and friendly hotel for a night on December 27 2016 before getting an early-morning flight from Stansted airport the following morning. My room was very comfortable and I also liked the fact that it was very quiet. The lady at reception was helpful and friendly and I had a super supper in the restaurant served...

The room and bathroom were large and well equiped. The design is good and the bed is very comfortable. The TV, kettle and iron all worked. There was no wifi except in the restaurant and reception area. The continental breakfast was ok but the room was badly lit, during breakfast, even after I asked for more lights to be turned...

Ok looks wise until you enter reception. Very poor standard of decor and cleanliness. Waited 10 mins for a receptionist only for a romanian to turn up needing a hair wash and someone telling her how to smile and greet! Had to pay for stay BEFORE seeing room. No comment made when i asked why and they wouldnt show room...

Clean and functional but v tired and out of date decor. Ok for 1 night prior to flying. Plenty of tea and coffee in the room. Shower was useless, a dribble, and head was floppy so couldn't stand under it.

cigarette smell in the room and the owners made noise until 1am (looks like they live in one of the rooms?). Some cars had been visited on the parking, windows broken. Would not recommend even if it's cheaper than the others.
