The hotel is a perfect stop over option for when flying from Stansted. While reception staff are perhaps not the warmest, with the first welcoming word being "Name ?", they are functional. Although there's usually a queue. Room seemed clean, light fitting above bed had a tendency to make a 'clinking' (expanding) noise every 30 seconds as the bulb heated...

The hotel is clean and the rooms are ok especially if you have to take an early flight. The restaurant gives a decent choice and the waiters are polite. A remark on the shuttle: please consider to have coins 3pounds or 5€. They don't accept cards.

We stayed here overnight following our late flight into the UK. We felt that the reception was cold and uninviting, the receptionist who dealt with our booking was brisk in his manner and I felt he was actually rude in the way he spoke to the guest before us. Our rooms (we were with friends) were on the 3rd floor...

Near an airport you are looking for not being too far away, and a good nights sleep. You get both here. Plus the lighter breakfast options are available from about 4am to accommodate those with early flights. There is a regular shuttle bus, but taxis can also be easily arranged and cost about £8.

My husband and myself stayed for one night in November. The hotel is well signposted and easy to find. We arrived at about 6pm we were pleased to see there were parking spaces (as had worried there would be none left as per our hotel booking info). We checked in quickly and went to our room, this was at the...

The place is really cozy and nice. Check in was quick and pretty simple. Being a IHG members, the perks are better price for rooms. I was greeted warmly as I entered the place.

Travelling from Stanstead at 12:00 pm I decided to stay the previous night local to Stansted to avoid any potential traffic issues. Arriving at around 16:00 I found the staff extremely helpful. The menu was not fine dining but good selection and the kitchen was equipped with a chicken Rotisserie. the half chicken and chips for £15 was cooked just...

I stayed here in advance of an early flight. The hotel is ideally situated for the terminal, only 5 minutes away using the regular shuttle bus. My room was spacious and the bed sooo comfortable. The breakfast, included in the price, was also rather tasty. I felt disappointed to leave. I would definitely stay here again. Only niggle: if you...

I chose the HI Express for a quick overnight prior to an early morning flight with my young my son. It won out against its rivals because of the promise of an included breakfast from 4am - so it was bit disappointing to discover that pastries, sausages, bacon, eggs and beans were on offer only from 6am (our time of...

I was not sure to rate the hotel as poor or average. We only stayed one night before our onward journey. The receptionist was really very friendly but the decor and the cleanliness is just plain tired. The room and bathroom was however clean and although the beds seem to be the old fashioned spring beds, we slept very well....
