Hotel had very uncomfortable beds and didn't feel clean (e.g. large stains on carpet). Walls were thin and shuttle service to airport was expensive (£6 one way for two adults to take a 5 min ride). Shuttle bus driver was incredibly rude. Do not recommend. Would not stay again.

I got into Stansted quite late from the Heathrow Shuttle, arriving at the Stansted airport around 11pm. Having never flown into an UK airport I had no clue where to locate my hotel shuttle. After walking in circles for 30 min I finally ended up in the central bus area and found the shuttle. I will leave a note for...

From the time we made our booking with Holiday Inn Express at Stansted Airport we could not fault the service - we booked several weeks ahead to leave the car with them and then spend the night on our return as we did not arrive back into the airport until 0025. We arrived and checked in and a very helpful...

Booked parking and hotel, for a fantastic price. The hotel provides a lovey full breakfast as part of the booking. Parked before we travelled and booking in was really easy, friendly welcome and the shuttle bus runs every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour. It is about a 10 minute transfer and only £3 each way per person....

This hotel lives up to old-held clichés about airport hotels, but not to the Holiday Inn Express standard. It is comparatively far away from the airport terminal building, so one must drive or use a shuttle. An inefficient lay-out in the lobby makes check-in complicated, one of the three elevators was not working, the room was not clean, there were...

Stayed here overnight before flying out on holiday with my wife and nearly 3 year old son. We booked family room and yet they put us right near the main hotel room where it was noisy and the hotel room stank a little of smoke!! The main bed dipped in the middle so made it uncomfortable to get to sleep....

Stayed one night prior to an early flight next day, including 1 weeks parking. Cannot fault the hotel - it is clean and comfortable, and the transfer to the airport was quick and efficient (although costs an extra £3 per person each way). The hotel food was expensive and didn't look great, but there are places to eat nearby. Our...

Ordinary room, clean, & okay for a 1-night stay, but the bed was very small for a double. Dinner was okay, pre-booking 2 courses for £20 pp was a good idea. Breakfast was a big disappointment. It's supposed to be available from 04.00 - but there is no indication that cooked food is not available until 06.00. So, after waiting...

Booked for my friends for one night before flight. I have checked them in because they came late night. Reception staff was very helpful and kind. Room OK Breakfast OK Hotel is walking distance to terminal but pavement is missing. Which is probably not hotel´s fault
