“Value for money”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

Stayed for a night for layover. It's what you'd expect, a slightly better version of motels. The room/building seemed a bit dusty (maybe it was in my mind? You can open the windows in guest rooms), but the room though old was surprisingly big with plenty space for luggage, big table, clean bathroom with decent towels (not those paper-thin ones you get in budget hotels.)

Free parking and free wi-fi, vending machines with soft drinks and snacks, adjacent to service station with KFC, Burger King, and Starbucks, but nothing else nearby in walking distance (if you have car it's different story.)

There is no cheap transportation being offered to/from the airport, and the only way to get here unless you are driving, is to get a taxi (10 pounds each way, fixed price.) Adding these costs, the price would've been the same as staying at Holiday Inn (much closer to the airport).

Stayed August 2012, travelled solo

The motel is functional and satisfactory. It is also cheaper than the Holiday Inn on site at the airport. Forget the taxi...it costs 10 pounds and take the 308 bus for 2.20 pounds. The bus runs about every 30 minutes from bay 25 from 5:00 am until 7:30 pm. Times are less frequent before and after but no more than once an hour. Tell the driver the days inn and he will tell you when to get off. It is only a 10 minute drive.The motel is next to a travel stop so there are several options for eating and drinking including a market but it is a bit expensive. If you have time to see the village it is worth the 4,40 round trip bus fare (still the 308) or you can walk 20 minutes but the view is not so nice. You can pick up groceries or alcohol at the Marks and Spencer in Bishops Stortford and save some money from the overpriced travel stop. The motel has wifi and ok tv but no air conditioning I arrived before normal check in time but a very nice woman named Rosyn let me in early and I was happy to pay the 10 pounds early fee to avoid waiting. Good value.

Room Tip: If it is hot stay on the ground floor.

I was attending a wedding nearby and I was completely satisfield with my stay in the Days Inn. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. The room was quiet and contained everything I needed. I did not use the breakfast room so cannot comment on the quality of the food.

For value for money and very close to Stansted Airport then this is bearable. The worst part was the reception which was very tiny, just one person behind the desk. The microwave oven which was situated on the wall had just been used so the air was full of some awful ready meal, a really grotty start. It looked like the hotel was used as much for local workmen as for overnight Airport passengers. To be fair, the rooms were fine, basic but clean with a large working space surface so good if you were there on business. Traffic noise from the room was almost eliminated by the windows, so not as bad as you feared. It all felt rather seedy, the reception, stairs and corridors could do with upgrading. The adjoining service station was very poor so we chose to drive to Bishops Stortford to eat.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel.

I'm sorry your stay with us was not as enjoyable as we would of hoped.

We do try to meet the needs of every single one of guest that stays with us.

I apologise that you feel the reception affected your stay, to inform you we are in the process of refurbishing the reception area.

Unfortunately we are based on the service station but they do offer a great variety of different facilities such as starbucks, KFC, Burger King, Wh Smiths, Waitrose and our own Eat In Restaurant. For guest that do prefer a sit down meal our staff, they have a great knowledge of the local area, and would be happy to recommend the best places to go locally.

I hope that the issues you have raised with us will not deter you from staying with us again.

I thank you once again for reviewing our hotel, as it helps us improve our hotel which we are continually wanting to do.

We used it as a base before an early flight and it was great. The position is ideal - 5 min to airport and 10 min to Bishop Stortford (which was actually very nice - good choice for food and a great play park for kids!).

The room was tired and run down but was clean enough and absolutely fine for a quick stay at a fair price.

The staff were amazingly friendly - and that made up for any issues we may have had!

Would use again - but only at the £40 for a family room mark :)

Nothing much to recommend it other than price and proximity to the airport. Conveniently located in a travel plaza with a number of eateries and a Starbucks enclosed in the same building. If you want just a good cup of coffee, go to the place next to Starbucks, good coffee for a pound less. Room was clean and well fitted out. Taxi fare is about $15.00usd to/from airport, train station or National Express terminal located at the airport. About $12.00usd National Express to Victoria Station.

We have stayed here around 8 times over the last ten years. it is great value for money, but the rooms are starting to look a bit tired, particularly the carpet and the bathroom. However I guess this is reflected in the price. The rooms have always been clean. The rooms are a good size with a large double bed and a sofa bed.

While we stayed on this occasion London was very hot and the room was so hot. Our room was facing the truck stop but we had to sleep with the windows open to try and cool it down so it was quite noisy. There is plenty of on site free car parking

The staff have always been friendly and helpful. The motorway stop next door was handy with the different food outlets and a WH Smith.

We would stay here again because of the price and it is a couple of minutes from Bishop Stortford where we were visiting.
