Handy for airport

Posted 17-Nov-2014
Pros: Rooms, staff, public areas, location,price. No hidden extras.
Cons: The menu choice and the overall standard of catering. For us, more vegetarian or at least healthy options.
Location: Get a flight!
Easy to find when approaching the airport. Plenty parking and hassle free check-in. Second closest to departure area after Raddison Blue (the most expensive). Competitive prices and good value for the rooms and public areas, both of which have been freshened up since my last visit. Down side? The free wifi is feeble and hit and miss, with unpredictable cold spots. But the big disappointment is the restaurant. It's basically pub grub and not prepared with passion. In fact the service was so quick as to suggest cook-chill. Breakfasts were ok, better for what they were than dinner. For one night before a flight, it's 6/10, let down by the kitchen.

Gear price for seeing London

Posted 17-Nov-2014
Stayed here two nights while in town for a show. As we arrived late the convenient location to Stanstead airport and the shuttle made it easy for us. The next day we took the shuttle back to the airport, bought day passes for the train/undeground, spent the day in London, saw the show and made it back. Overall we spent about 1/4th of what a hotel in the city would have cost.

stay before and after a flight

Posted 10-Nov-2014
Pros: Proximity to airport - although return shuttle cost us £12
Cons: Just be a l little more welcoming !
The check in staff were rude and un helpful - more so to the people before me in the queue. Our room key had not been activated so my husband had to return to reception where he was virtually accused of not knowing what he was doing ! Breakfast was extremely limited ( I know they say it is free) and the crockery, cutlery, tables and general area were not very clean. Staff stood talking about their holiday entitlement Bed was small and very un comfortable

Close to the Airport and transport to London

Posted 06-Nov-2014
The strong and only point of this hotel is that it is near to the airport and public transport to London and it is relatively cheap. Shuttle bus is provided but also a taxi can reach it from the airport in 10 minute. During my stay the internet was down which can happen. The breakfast has very little vegetarian option and the fruit is almost tasteless.

Very nice hotel 5mins from airport

Posted 16-Oct-2014
Pros: It was clean, bright and comfortable with very good staff.
Cons: Ability to have lunch in hotel and coffe available not from a vending machine.
Location: Location was very good for airport I did not enquire about facilities near by.
I was forced to take an early, flight although I would not be flying out until next day. I thought about visiting Central London but it was cold and wet, I was able to book in very early without additional charge. Staff were very helpful in printing out e ticket for next day.

Convenient and great value

Posted 06-Oct-2014
Pros: Great (and I mean great) value for money. Friendly staff, ease of access both in the hotel and to and from airport. Free breakfast. A lot to like.
Cons: Double bed could have been larger
Location: Very convenient for Stansted airport
Very convenient for Stansted Airport. An easy 5 minute taxi ride easily arranged both there and back. Rooms a decent size, modern. Smallish bathroom but fully functional. Very helpful staff. I as travelling with family and aged mother-in-law who is frail and they were considerate offering her a cup of tea gratis on arrival. Free newspapers. Easy access to the rooms (we requested a ground floor due to mother-in -law infirmity. The price(booked through Expedia) could not have been bettered. And it included a free breakfast. We ate in house that evening, and there was a chicken special promotion, again good value and big helpings. If I had one criticism it was the bed size was not Super King, more like Queen. By yourslef no issue, but with 2 of us it was snug.

Fit for purpose

Posted 29-Sep-2014
Cons: Paying 3 pounds extra for airport bus when most people seemed to be there for that purpose seemed grasping and inconsiderate when people may not handy
Staff trying hard but it was anonymous. As an airport hotel it was ok.
