“Ideal for one night, right next to services and Stansted Airport”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

We stayed in a family room for one night. We have previously stayed in Days Hotel next door but this motel was better - bigger room and comfy beds.
Ideal location for the airport and right next to the services if you are hungry. We drove into Bishops Stortford though, which is a nice little town - 5 mins drive.

Ok, this aint the Ritz, although basic, but it is clean and very quiet. The reception staff are always very accommodating and informed.
They have many disabled access rooms on the ground floor by the way.

However, beware cost of transfer to and from the airport !! The airport taxis will charge over £10 each way and grumble the whole trip, so avoid them.
Best option is to use the local Bus service - number 308 from stand 25 - cost £2.20 each way.
Bus stop fro Days inn is by request.

Room Tip: All rooms about the same - there is no view except onto the car park.

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).

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 :)
