Stayed here when flying though Stansted recently and irked by the £3 charge each way for the hotel shuttle - this appears to be practice in the Greater London area which is unique as shuttles are free in nearly every other country I have used one. Have change is the advice - I frequently don't and rely on credit cards...

I am a member of the hotel group and stayed at this hotel many times for my early departure flights, yet, although altogether I cannot complain really much, there is one thing that annoys me every single time: the warm breakfast only starts at 6am when most of the people have left already for their flights departing up to 7.30-8am....

Great stopover before our onward flight. Check in smooth and had everything explained. Great spot as parking was included and didn't have to move car. Lovely room and had everything required. Comfy bed which made for a good nights sleep, no noise either from other guests walking around at night. Breakfast was normal Holiday Inn Express standard, hot and cold...

This is a very decent , clean hotel. The room are ok, nice beds, hot water, friendly staff and a shuttle services to the airport after every 30mins. Its mainly for those who would want to use Stansted Airport. However they could add more selection on the breakfast and of course beef up their gym

We had never stayed at a Holiday Inn before but would certainly stay here again as it is so handy for the airport. We travelled down from Scotland for a family wedding and spent 2 nights at the Holiday Inn in a twin room with free breakfast at an exceptional price. The staff couldn't have been kinder and the free...

The Hotel is very near to the airport, there are 2 shuttle bus you can take. In case you miss one in front of the hotel, especially early mornings, you can go to the premier inn hotel, less than 5 minutes walk. The receptionist will tell you at what time there is next one. Rooms, at this hotel this is...

I wish I had read the reviews before booking. The staff on reception are unhelpful and won't go out of their way to help with the simplest of requests. I asked directions to the mid stay parking and they rolled their eyes! The room was tired and tatty with a broken mirror and mouldy shower and stains on the carpet....
