Firstly, the hotel itself is pretty good. Rooms what you'd expect, decor a little bland but its essentially a travellers stopover so it's expected. The staff at reception are friendly and helpful and it's at the airport so transfers are short.
We 'stayed' (I'm actually in the room writing this) just before an early flight and left the car there for a week.
But, the 'health' club is a disgrace. From the condition of the thick grime, mould growth and browning water in the pool, I'd say it hasn't been properly cleaned since it was built. The changing rooms-come-cesspit we're just foul, so much so we opted to get showered in the room.
I dread to think of the bacteria breeding in that place, my advice, wear a hasmat suit of at least get the same vaccinations if you're going somewhere like the slums of Calcutta if you're brave enough to risk it.
Livingwell should be ashamed of the facility at the Hilton London Stansted, and so should the hotel. I expect more from such a reputed brand.
Can't fault the rest of the hotel if you're staying for a brief overnighter with parking.
