This is a large, modern 3 star hotel, very close to Stansted Airport.  It’s got plenty of facilities and does a range of holiday parking deals.  We looked to see what guests were saying about the hotel on the internet in March 2010, and can report that it gets very good ratings – 4 out of 5.

The Holiday Inn Express is just 5 minutes away from the terminal at Stansted Airport.  The bedrooms are double glazed to prevent any noise disrupting your sleep.


They have holiday parking packages, which include a night’s accommodation and either 4, 8 or 15 days parking in the hotel’s car park, or the Mid Stay car park across the road.

Check-in/out and breakfast

You can check in from 2 pm and check up til 11 am.  Light breakfasts are laid on from 4 am for those unfortunate people who have to catch a very early flight.  A cooked breakfast is available from 6 am to 10 am.

Shuttle bus

There’s a shuttle bus running to and from the airport every 30 minutes, between 4 am and 12 midnight every day.  It costs £2 per person per journey.

Hotel facilities

There’s complimentary wireless internet in the lobby.  For business travellers, they’ve got 6 meeting rooms and a 24 hour self-service Business Centre.  The bar has an outside terrace to enjoy in summer and the restaurant serves up world cuisine.  Kids eat free here, so that’s a bonus.

Guest rooms

It’s quite a big hotel with 254 guest rooms.  They all have double glazed windows to block out any noise and some have air conditioning so you would never need to open those windows!  They’re also kitted out with satellite TV, pay per view movies, workspace, phone and wireless internet connection, although there’s a charge attached to that – £5.99 for one hour and £11.99 for 24 hours (May 2010).  There’s also a hairdryer and tea maker.  Executive rooms, interconnecting rooms and suites are available.


The hotel has great facilities in this department.  It has 13 blue badge parking spaces.  The bar and restaurant are fully accessible, as are the meeting rooms.  There are induction loops for the hard of hearing, literature can be provided in large print and assistance dogs are welcome.  Vibrating pagers raise the alarm in the event of a fire, and an evacuation chair is available.  Accessible bedrooms have been designed with appropriate turning circles and low level facilities.  To book one of these, please call 0800 40 40 40.


From the M11, exit via Junction 8/8a, then follow signs to Stansted Airport Terminal. At the main roundabout, take the 3rd exit following signs for Mid-Stay Car Park, then Holiday Inn Express.
