I've always been a strong believer that all Holiday Inn's are the same, All the rooms are identical, Staff seem pretty robotic and foods the same wherever you go. Not here. Our room was disgusting to say the least. The sofa had countless stains all over it. The TV was cracked. The bed had fallen through and sunk in the...

Rooms are nice and clean, quilt is really cozy! Shower a delight, there only thing letting it down is the cheap toilet paper! Breakfast is really good plenty to eat and tasty nutritious food, all in all a delightful stay.

Second time here in January 2017. Although large corporate hotel you get the feeling of family run establishment. All staff very friendly and helpful offering first class service. Reasonable complimentary breakfast. Good parking. Shuttle every 30 minutes from front door to airport. (Currently £3 per person) . No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I booked this via a third party and saved over £20. Well worth staying here with free holiday parking and stress free stay. Good breakfast choice, free wifi, walking distance to McDonald's and M&S shop at petrol station. Good bar on site and the room had it all as expected.

We had an early morning flight from Stansted so booked a night here. Good price, excellent room,all facilities were good. Most importantly the shuttle was regular and reliable. Bit of a cheek charging £3.00 for each trip. should be part of the package. It is an airport hotel after all.

Wanted a overnight stay with a couple of nights parking and it gave just that. Room was of usual HIE standard with a comfy bed fantastic powerful shower. We didnt eat evening meal but did enjoy the 'earlybird' breakfast served from 4am - which was a great idea for the early risers. All staff we encountered were very polite and...

The room was so dark it was like a dungeon but it still couldn't hide the nasty stains on the bedding, carpet and in the bathroom. The light breakfast before 6 am wasn't worth showing up for. I only had a coffee but it was powdery and repeated on me for the rest of the day. My second stay at...

Stayed here for a night as I was flying early the next morning. The room was clean and spacious. Check in was slow but I guess it can be busy when the shuttle bus arrives at the same time. Breakfast was a let down the bread rolls were hard and stale like the only hot food was beans, sausage and...

This hotel is in a good location if you need somewhere with easy access to the airport. The courtesy bus runs every half hour, but beware it is actually £3 per person each way. We were in a group of 5 and a taxi was £11 from the airport rather than the £15 we paid on the bus. Unfortunately the...
