Great, though pricy hotel. Excellent bedrooms, well equipped. Breakfast excellent too. We didn't have dinner, but the menu looked good.
It has a good leisure club. We used the pool, steam room and sauna. There was also a gym, but we didn't venture that far!
I wouldn't stay there if you we're only having a few hours rest. It is expensive and so you need time to use all their facilities
Ive used this hotel few times now and every time is as good as last, the food is great,and if you want room service they are so helpful. We've sat and ate in the bar also and its very relaxed with nice comfort. Rooms are well equipped with comfortable beds and plenty tea,coffee etc provided, Recommended if you're looking for a great hotel near Colchester with easy access to all roads
I have stayed many times at the Hilton, Stansted Airport- but also tried the other main Stansted Hotels. The Hilton experience stands out as far superior to the others. The main reason is probably the staff- although most are not long term at this hotel, they are unfailingly courteous kind and helpful. Originally I used this hotel as a stopover when using the airport, but I am increasingly using it as base for business based around the area of the A1M and southern East Anglia.
My whole family stayed here for one night as we were attending a friend's surprise 50th birthday party nearby. The leisure facilities although not huge, were more than adequate. We had three rooms booked with breakfast which was excellent with a superb choice to suit all. One room for my wife, my 2 year old grand daughter and I, plus 2 for my daughters and their husbands. Only downside was that there was no blanket or top sheets provided for the travel cot for my grand daughter. I went to the reception about 10.15pm to ask for some covers and was given two large sheets by the helpful receptionist which was adequate. However, on the way back to my room which was on the ground floor, guests in one room could be heard from about 30 yards away indulging in adult activities (xxx rated) with expletives normally heard in a football stadium. I was glad I was on my own as my wife would have been totally shocked. This was the only problem I experienced.
Said goodbye to car in free hotel car park on arrival as The George is within walking distance of everything in town. This inn has wonderful character, the staff are ever so friendly and helpful, the fires are always burning, the food was better than usual standard "pub grub". It is like a tardis, nooks and cranney's everywhere that create real atmosphere. Can highly recommend.

Great welcome on arrival. Then you put on your robe and start to wind down in to a chilled out world. Yoga, exercise classes, meditation, naturotherapy talks, garden walks, spa and pool all included. Treatments extra (a bit pricey?).
Left feeling recharged and relaxed.
