Reservations: Compare prices on DeSalis Stansted Airport 


The DeSalis Hotel London Stansted is just outside the airport perimeter.  It’s 5 minutes by shuttle bus to the terminal building.  The hotel is positioned away from the flight path, so you won’t hear the planes roaring overhead and you’ll be able to appreciate the acres of woodland around the hotel.


Most rooms come with a day’s free parking and there are package deals including a night’s accommodation with long term parking.  The hotel is actually closer to the airport than the official Stansted car parks, so you won’t have as far to go to collect your car.  (When you’re tired or in a rush, that makes all the difference!)  Long term parking prices start at £3.50 per day (March 2010).

Check-in/out and breakfast

You can check in any time after 12 noon.  Check-out is at 11 am.  If you’re in a hurry you can ask to use the Express Check-Out service.  If you’re up and about early you can eat something from the continental breakfast buffet from 3 am.  The Full English starts at 7 am and is served until 12 noon.

Shuttle bus

The shuttle bus will have you at the terminal in about 5 minutes.  It runs to the airport every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day.  When you arrive back at the airport after your trip, you call the hotel and the driver will pick you up at bay 36 in the Bus and Coach Station within 7-10 minutes.  Pick ups are available until midnight and you can also pre-book them.  This great transfer service makes it a no-hassle option for holiday parking.

Hotel facilities

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building and there are computers you can use for free in the reception area if you haven’t brought your laptop with you.  If you’ve got the time, you can explore the garden.  There’s a receptionist on hand 24 hours a day and a porter to help you with your luggage.  The bar and restaurant are open from 6 pm to midnight and there are both Indian and English menus.  There are high chairs for the kiddies.  The hotel is entirely non smoking.








Guest rooms

The DeSalis Hotel Stansted Airport has 50 guest rooms, including single, twin, double and family rooms, which can sleep 3 or 4 adults (even if you aren’t related!)  They’re all en suite and some have Jacuzzi, which you can book for an extra-relaxing evening.  They all have complimentary Wi-Fi access, TV, DVD player, radio alarm clock and telephone.  For those who need to look their best in the morning, they also provide you with a trouser press, iron and board and hairdryer. Executive rooms are perfect for travelling business people as they come with a computer and printer in a separate work area.  Family rooms with interconnecting doors are available and they can put in a cot if you’re bringing baby along.  You can order room service rather than going down the restaurant if you feel like it.  There’s no smoking in the hotel.


The hotel has 2 wheelchair accessible rooms.  The bar and restaurant are fully accessible.


If you’re coming by car, get off the M11 motorway at junction 8.  Go towards the terminal building, following the signs towards the short stay car park and Radisson SAS.  When you get to last roundabout before the terminal (Coopers End Roundabout) take the fourth exit, sign posted Molehill Green.  There’s a mini roundabout just after this, where you need to take a left towards Molehill and Elsenham.  Drive along this road for 3.5 km, passing the Three Horse Shoes Pub and after a couple of minutes you will see the DeSalis Hotel London Stansted Airport on your right-hand side.

Airport views

This place is very close to the airport, but not close enough to get a view of the planes. If that’s important to you, try the Radisson SAS Stansted Airport instead.
