Stansted Airport Hotel
A little isolated. There is a McDonald’s, Starbucks and gas station market 3-4 minutes walk. 4 pounds to take shuttle bus to / from Stansted Airport.

2/10 Poor

We stayed as a family of four prior to flying the following morning. The room was tight for space however that was to be expected. The issue was the air con had broken and apparently the engineer wouldn’t be back until the following day. It was boiling in the room and no windows that could open. They offered us a fan which we accepted however there was already a fan in the room suggesting the issue is ongoing and had not just happened. Horrific for a family with two young children to sleep in. We had dinner in the restaurant which was pricy for the mediocre standard to be honest. Breakfast from 5am for the early departures was good. The hotel staff were very friendly and check in was swift. The main bed was very comfy although I ended up sleeping on the sofa bed with my son which was not comfy. Getting the bus to the terminal was simple and straightforward.

2/10 Poor

Don't bother if you want to sleep
Honestly would never stay at this hotel again. We booked because we had an early morning flight but couldn't sleep a wink. The room was above the bins which were emptied by a lorry about 22:30. Realised the window vent had been snapped off so we essentially slept with an open window all night. Ended up stuffing a towel in the window to try and muffle some of the noise from the runway. And the cherry on top, the smoke alarm directly above the bed must have been low on battery and blinked all night. All a bit naff really.

6/10 Good

Staff wonderful, room less so.
Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, even at 3am. Parking was easy. Bed had a huge dip in the middle though and there was a very disturbing stain on the bed frame and carpet. For our purpose of a place to get a few hours sleep after a night flight, it was fine but I would not be happy if I had paid with money rather than tesco points.

4/10 Fair

A crappy hotel
A shabby hotel; they charge you for every little thing. Room amenities are minimal. The front desk doesn’t answer the phone AT ALL.
