This is a terrible hotel. The family room was cramped - containing a very large desk and sofa chair that was impossible to sit because it was so close to the bed. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. As for the staff? The lady at check in was very friendly. However the following morning I requested help from one of the... More

Hotel is outdated with old bad decor. Unclean rooms, sofa looks to have had years of dust collected on it. Most uncomfortable bed in he entire world. Not a single bit of sleep. Noisy. Worst breakfast. Many unclean tables at breakfast area. Will never return.

A comfortable hotel to spend the night before the flight. Paid shuttle Shuttle service is available from bay 21 Stanstead airport. If three or more passengers are travelling, a taxi works out cheaper. Rooms are comfortable and clean, Early breakfast is available. No issues with reception, check in or check out. The nearest hotel to the airport is Radisson blu,... More

I was able to park at the hotel, no problems. Lovely, comfortable room. Everything went smoothly. We were able to have breakfast before we left at 6am. The bus was regular as clockwork. It just made the holiday more relaxing and less stressful.

Stayed here the night before an early flight. Arrived at about 9.30pm, the car park was full and the receptionist said just park wherever you can but don't block the bus. So back to the car, onto the kerb and just hope the car doesn't get damaged. Had booked a room for three, but it hadn't been set up for... More

Unbelievable I have never stayed at a hotel so close to an airport that has run out of parking spaces and doesn't have a back up due to full booking. Nine people stayed and used just three cars, but only one car could park, with the hotel advising that it was okay to park on double yellow. For £5 extra... More

Stayed there to break up a drive from the south of France to the north of England with my 3 kids. Got a family room away from the main reception (I asked for a quiet room on booking.com) for well under 100GBP although I did have to pay 9GBP for parking. Free breakfast for all 4 of us meant that... More

Booked a non-refundable double room for one person at first but a month later contacted the hotel to change the amount of adults to two and they were very forthcoming and changed my booking without any problems or extra fees. Only stayed for one night before catching an early morning flight from Stansted. Perfect location for the airport, convenient shuttle... More
