We stayed over at this hotel as a quick stop before an early flight. The man who checked us in was extremely rude and had no people skills. At first we thought the hotel was nice, the room seemed okay. However there were multiple bugs in the room, the mattress was horrific and broken, the bathroom was disgusting and covered... More

Lovely friendly staff but their lack of English was frustrating. I am a Coeliac & was assured that gluten free food would be on offer.There was steak & chicken on menu but no assurance that the sides were totally gluten free.Breakfast will have to be my own cereal & bread as none available. Otherwise the the hotel is ok for... More

I’ve spent one night only at the DeSalis, to be honest I’ve chosen it just because it was the cheapest one near Stansted and after being there I’m really happy with my choice. The bedroom was perfectly clean, comfortable and big. They offer (£6) a service from and to the airport that is pretty useful since the hotel can’t be... More

I tried to contact the hotel for pick up. Only after 4 rings someone answered. I was at the airport already and wanted to use the 6 pound shuttle service. I waited at the discussed location for another 15 minutes: nothing. I tried calling again. After a couple of calls they finally send the driver which made me wait another... More

Staff here are very friendly! Patient and understanding when faced with a problem! Fantastic value for money! Clean, tidy and comfortable! Excellent area if coming in / out from Stanstead airport! Breakfast looked and smelt great (unfortunately didn't have time to stay and eat anything as had a plane to catch.) Could definitely recommend.

We spend one night here when travelling to London Stansted. We have arrived around 11:30 pm, as we previously mentioned to the reception in our booking details, but it took almost one hour before someone came to check us in. Horrible. I was really pissed. The room was average, the bed was OK - not the best, not the worst.... More

Away from the bustle of the airport (collected by hotel minibus from block-of-flats Radisson Blu hotel adjacent to airport) to rebuilt stable-block type building in lovely gardens. Staff friendly and helpful. Room spacious by budget hotel standards, large bathroom with two sinks, efficient over-bath shower, but curtain rather than screen = less than ideal. Peaceful rural surroundings, with birdsong rather... More

Lovely atmosphere when you drive through the garden to get to reception. Disappointing that me and my friends ran the bell for assitance about 3 times before a receptionist turned up to check us in the hotel. Arrived in room, lovely room and no stairs which was good. Arrived for breakfast at 9:15am to find that most things were gone.... More
