This is a nice place but you absolutely need a car. It is only 15 mins drive from Stansted airport but the cab charge will be at least 40 pounds and public transport is tedious and expensive. They say it is only 7 miles to a tube station but I can't see it being very easy to get there.
Luckily I had a car. Still the trip to central London is quite long. I would not recommend this place for a tourist to London.
The hotel itself has nice rooms, a spa that looked good though I did not use it, typical coffee, tea and ironing facilities in each room. Comfortable beds and a good bathroom.
Make sure you check out your car from the car park. This is done by the reception. The rate is quite cheap, on some days it is free I believe.
