£80 fo. Overall a pleasant visit and we'll definitely return when we next fly out from Stansted.r 4 days parking and an overnight stay - extremely good value. The staff were excellent both on arrival and departure, and also when we collected the car 4 days later. Standars HI Express breakfast, but continually re-stocked

Room Tip: Top floor - very quiet

Even with a late check in the staff were extremely friendly and the procedure was both smooth and fast. The rooms are more than ample but the surprise was the breakfast which is more than what you would expect, or get, from a budget airport hotel. The shuttle bus runs 06.00 - 01.00 at a charge of £ 3.00 (maybe this should be free of charge as a service) and the car parking is large enough and secure (£ 8.00 for the night)

We checked in late and had massive issues as we had booked via a trusted agent, they had reserved the rooms in the name of the booking agent rather than ours...not once but all 3 rooms! So check in was a nightmare but eventually handled very well by a very efficient Reception Manager. Room exactly what you would expect and breakfast same..

Dear ntegrity21,

thank your for leaving us your comments regarding your stay.

I am sad to see that your check-in was not fast as exprected, but as you said your trusted agent booked the room for you under their name rather than yours, but i am happy to see that has been handled properly by the reception manager.

I am happy to see that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again
Best Regards

Stayed here as we had an early flight the next morning. Very comfortable beds, very clean room and staff were very friendly. Like other reviewers, we were also down before breakfast started and the receptionist allowed us to go and help ourselves to tea, cereal and toast which was great.

The hotel is situated beside a petrol station, McDonalds and Starbucks which is helpful as if you do want something warm at half 4 in the morning, then McDonalds is open.

There is a shuttle bus to the airport which costs three pounds and arrives every half hour. If you miss it then you can run over to the Premier Inn and get it there too as it is the same service.

Definitely would stay again.

This is our second stay. We landed just before midnight and spent the night here before moving on.

It is the normal Holiday Inn Express format and good value for money. As you can imagine the hotel is always busy so you might have to wait at reception. The breakfast arrangements seem to cope well.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook the car park and shuttle bus stop. Therefore, you get the sound of wheeled cases bumping along from very early. OK if you have an early flight! The back is much quieter and fine if you are a late night arrival and travelling on at a civilised hour.
