The only positive side is the location - good only if you have a flight next morning and need to stay for one night. Otherwise - Terrible WIFI and 3/4G connection is really poor. Breakfast is under average. Hotel is old and staff was not friendly or maybe they were tired.

So some of us may have had an idea that Holiday Inns were basic - Think Again! This one is really comfortable, decent sized rooms and good en suite facilities (they provide shower gel and liquid soaps so you don't need to unpack all of yours). Breakfast was included and as we left early, it was the Continental version but...

This place is a joke! They cannot even cook a Pizza, the Chicken is advertised as 'Rotisserie', watch cook and go brown and crispy. That I'd a lie. It comes out, without any skin and has so obviously been cooked earlier in terms day and then warmed for.your plate, a very dangerous exercise. The furniture in the lobby and so...

Adequate and functional hotel about 3 minutes' drive from Stansted terminal. Secure car park (payable at reception's discretion if you're a guest). Staff were extremely professional and courteous. Bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in, shame it was only for 4 hours. Continental breakfast was very basic and bakery had not been served (it was 4:30am). However,...

The hotel has all the basics you will need perfectly arranged (shower,bed,wifi,tv) everything really clean including common areas.

Stayed here prior to and after a visit to Prague. There was plenty of parking and check in was fast, efficient and the staff were friendly. Rooms were clean and modern and the outside noise was minimal. The only negative was the shower flow, but that's being picky. Food and drink was reasonably priced for a hotel and was of...

Stayed with two other couples for one night prior to next day flight. Rooms are pretty basic. Had evening meal which was okay but have had far better pub food. Service was fairly slow. They did not have enough bar staff to cope hence slow service. Breakfast was so basic and the cooked was terrible (think it was powdered scrambled...
