Lovely hotel close to the airport. Room was nice and clean. Some aircraft noise which didnt bother me. There was some loud music though until the early hours, not sure if this was from another guests room or the hotels bar though.

Beautiful rooms and grounds, great spa. Lication for Stansted. Only issues were lack of lift facilities in main building so if u have a suitcase ask to stay in the exec rooms. No pool either tho plenty of space to add one. It was 80 degrees that day but they had the heating on in all the corridors?! ...
