The Stansted Airport Lodge is about 5 minutes’ drive from the airport, in the village of Takeley.


The hotel gives you a day’s free parking with your room, and you can book a park and fly package – with a room for the night and holiday parking included.  Long term parking costs £5 a day (May 2010).  In this case the car will be moved to another hotel in the same group – the DeSalis Hotel.

Check-in/out and breakfast

You need to check in between 2 pm and 1 am.  Check-out is at 11 am.  There’s a buffet style breakfast served between 3.30 am and 9.30 am.

Shuttle bus

They run transfers to and from the airport from 4am until 1 am.  This costs £3 per person per journey and the time can be sorted out when you check in.

Hotel facilities

There’s free wi-fi access throughout the Stansted Airport Lodge.  They also have a fax service and a receptionist is on hand to help you 24 hours a day.

Guest rooms

The guest rooms are all en suite and they have TVs and the bits and bobs you need to make a cup of tea or coffee.  Business rooms are available.  Cots can be put into the bedrooms for babies.  If you need to make a good impression, just ask and they’ll give you a hairdryer or an iron and board.  There are 12 rooms in total, a mixture of double, family and single rooms.









There are accessible bedrooms, but these are the only parts of the building that have been made accessible to wheelchair users.


From the motorway, exit at Junction 8, then take the turn for the B1256, signposted for Takeley.  The Stansted Airport Lodge is 1.6 miles along this road on the left.

Airport views

You can’t see the airport from here.  If you’re keen on planespotting, try the Hilton instead.
