I have to confess that I am an IHG member , which means wherever I go I use a hotel that is part of the Intercontinental hotels group. In the UK this usually means the Holiday Inn chain and the more upmarket Crown Plaza or Intercontinental hotels. I lived weekly in a Holiday Inn near Gatwick for 2 years and... More

Easy location to get to and the room was clean and tidy, friendly staff and easy for the airport. Car park next door to leave you car while away. Bus to airport was 3 pounds each one way. Would stay here again, breakfast was basic but overall good value

Used it for a basic sleep-over, as we had to catch a 6am flight out of Stansted airport (what a hell-hole!). TV was not working, and front desk never bothered to send anyone to fix it. The £3 charge for the "courtesy airport shuttle" is annoying. Shower water temperature controls were tough to work - almost got burned by scalding-hot... More

The hotel is OK for what it is meant for, an overnight stay only. The room was small but reasonably comfortable. The breakfast was nothing special, but it was free, allegedly!. The public areas are in despirate need of a deep clean. The stay and park scheme is very good and there is a small charge for the bus to... More

Stayed one Saturday night before a European city break. Booked a double room with 3 night's parking for a very reasonable rate. Located on the airport site but nowhere near the terminal. Plenty of parking when we arrived but would think it can get very busy very quickly, not sure what this would mean but I assume they have some... More

Lovely breakfast included in the price of the room. Shuttle service available from and to the airport at £3 p/p (from 4am every 30 minutes till 1am).

Stayed before a recent weekend break. Room comfortable and clean as you would expect. Complimentary breakfast made a good start to the day. The only downside was that for the price we paid at the bar for two double vodkas we could have brought a litre & had change. We will use this hotel again but not the bar!

This is a good hotel, reasonably priced and very close to Stansted Airport. The staff were very friendly and the room and bed comfortable. The only let down was the black mould in the shower that called into question the degree of hygiene applied by the housekeeping staff.
