My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Stansted in April the night before a flight out. The first dissapointment was on arrival being told that we had to pay an £8 car park charge for the night of our stay! We had booked the Mid-stay car park for the following day and had we known the...

We chose to stay at the Stansted Holiday Inn Express as we had a long journey to the airport, a 4.10 am check in and most compelling reason of all, the overnight stay with a week's car parking was only £25 more than car parking alone at the airport's long stay facility. The hotel was easy to find and whilst...

This hotel's location is really good if you're staying over before getting an early morning flight out of Stansted airport. It was clean, staff were friendly, however the bed and duvet were tiny, and the mattress uncomfortable, so we kept bumping into each other and waking each other up all night. As a result, in the future for early morning...

We used this hotel for one night so that we didn't have to mess the family around when they would have had to pick us up at 1am. On arrival the staff were very friendly, the hotel was clean and seemed very welcoming. Everything was thoroughly explained to us - where the lifts were, how to operate them, breakfast times...

We booked this hotel as a park and stay, when we looked at the price of a weeks car park or a nights stay and parking at the holiday inn there was only £10 difference.

Stayed over on a sty and park deal, excellent value for accommodation and parking, there's a BP garage and a macD across the road. Take ya own wine, I was shocked at £7 a glass, although that was large.

If you are arriving late in the evening to Stansted airport, the transport options to London are very limited which make this hotel a perfect place to stay for a night. There is a minivan which picks you up at the airport (cost 3 Pounds) and drives 5 minutes to the hotel. Reception is fast and friendly, rooms clean, beds...
