selected this hotel as part of a stay over for a flight from Stansted and used my priority points, as other reviewers have stated, the rooms are somewhat dated for a holiday inn, no air conditioning in the room, the shower is a trickle of hot water..no pressure at all in the water system, menus for the restaurant are confusing with the amount of options are available, I wouldn't say the hotel is stating that of an a la carte menu.....the bar is small, with only 2 seats in the bar area. internet is painfully slow, as a PC member you now get free internet, which is a basic connection so I decided to upgrade to a 'business' connection, this wasn't faster, so at £12 for a 24hr period is a bit of a con...although the receptionist contacted Swisscom, they stated that all was ok, so it was up to me to get a refund, as the hotel is charged , so I need to be charged...
housekeeping are very keen to get into your room, despite arriving at the hotel at 2am, placing the do not disturb notice on the door, they wanted to get into the room at 9am to service the room,
if you do decide to stay here, get a room facing the car park, as the hotel is right beside the A1, and at a busy roundabout, there will be constant traffic noise, as the windows are not double glazed.
The ice machine isn't working, with a notice out of order, I suspect this has been out of order for some time, as there were 6 days between stays for me, and it wasn't fixed.
the redemption rate is 10k points if your using your IHG membership....you just may want to save them, there is a Travelodge 2miles north, may be worth saving your points...
