... walk through treacherous, hilly, wog infested terrain....but (for Bob), anything was better than taking a 3 minute ride in a floating bath tub! We stopped for a coffee and enjoyed the relative isolation of the location......surprisingly there was a bar just a few metres away that was displaying several Australian flags as well as having green and yellow (of course I mean..... Gold!) deck chairs. Presumably the establishment was not supporting our World Cup effort..... Nor ...

Top Deck Ride

... and the girls got the urge to shop so we caught the tube to Oxford street where we hit peak hour except in London peak hour continues well into the evening. We finished the day with some surprisingly good pre made curries which we purchased from Sainsbury's with only 4 minutes to spare before 8pm closing and reheated at our flat accompanied by the 2002 vintage red Dennis had given us in Cornwall. Cheers Dennis and Audrey, if your reading ...

Arrival in London

A travel blog entry by samreynolds


... Stansted is in London, but travelling along in the train, it definitely doesn't feel as if you are in London - green fields everywhere and not a high rise or skyscraper in sight.

Arrived into Liverpool Street station, and the place was wedged! People everywhere. Made my way through the throngs of people and got myself one of the famous black London ...

Grantully Road

A travel blog entry by shaneandlaura


Home sweet home We moved in on Thursday night. We caught a taxi here, best £22 investment because lugging our suitcases up and down tube stairs was not appealing. We arrived late but it was lovely Anna had a friend over and we had a glass of prosecco to celebrate. Our bedroom is not big, probably the same size as my Thames room, except the wardrobe is in the room. The lounge, kitchen and dining are all nice, new areas. We have a little balcony that ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Stansted Airport

    Clean, Fresh, MSLightly Minimalist.


    The Holiday Inn Express at Stansted Airport represents excellent value for money, particularly when you consider that it is an airport hotel and these tend to be extremely overpriced. But what impressed me the most was the fact that it was spotless (no guarantee for this in the UK!) and incredibly well maintained. It exuded an air of "just opened".

    In short: well maintained, good, attentive staff and exceedingly good value for money.

    Clean, modern, excellent value for money


    I stayed at this hotel for the night because I was flying from the airport the next morning. This hotel offers excellent value for money. It cost me £58.95 for a double room with sofa bed which was spacious, ultra clean, with modern ikea-style decor and had lots of little extras like nice toiletries and sky TV. The breakfast was a complimentary buffet the next morning which was well stocked. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a bus to the airport which runs every 20 minutes and cost me £2.

    Overall, if you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel to stay in before your flight then this is the right choice. It's rated 3* but it's at the higher end of that rating and it's better than many hotels I have stayed at in Central London - and a lot cheaper!



    Fantastic stay, Value for money, The staff were very friendky and helpful. We felt safe leaving the car, secure car park.

    Fantastic value


    We booked a park & fly package at the Hotel as we had an early flight from stansted. The Hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and we felt confident in leaving the car in their car park as it is secure. Most importantly was it was great value for money and by staying over prior to the flight it took away all the stress of getting to the airport. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.



    The hotel was very busy when we stayed and there were not enough staff. The queues for check-in and the bar was very long. The wait for food was over 40 mins and the staff were very unhelpful. Overall, I would not want to stay more than one night, it just about fulfils its function as an airport stopover hotel.

    Great stay! Clean fresh, and close to airport. And good value


    Hotel better than most Express I ahve stayed in as they serve dinner! also hotel is new so very clean and fresh. Thanks for a very comfortable stay!

    Good value at Stansted


    I often stay at this hotel on business for one night prior to an early morning flight. It always is clean and staff are generally friendly enough. For around £70 per room the price is reasonable considering the location and that includes a buffet breakfast.

    Car park can be full and costs £4 per night on top of the stay, there is also a shuttle that takes you to the airport for £2, although the bus stop is not easy to find at the airport (it is in the coach park).

    I would also recommend the Hilton, as it has leisure facilities and can be as cheap if you get a special internet rate.

    Great Stop over hotel


    Great airport hotel - new, clean, modern, a short hop from the airport (bus starts at ~6:00 am - every 20 mins)

    Great option as a stopover or a base for an early flight - would recommend and will definitely use in the future

    Nice, clean rooms


    The rooms, although on the small side and characterless, are very clean, pleasant and modern. The beds are comfortable and I particularly liked the bathrooms. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the rooms.

    Clean, Modern Accommodation and Handy for the Airport


    Nice clean hotel, appeared to have been recently refurbished with some very modern touches such as LED lighting in the bedrooms; all the usual facilities - writing desk, TV, radio, tea/coffee tray, etc. Bathroom bright and fresh and the hotel location very convenient for Stansted Airport - about two miles from the terminal. Only gripe is that the hotel claimed to have a restaurant but this turmed out to be a very limited menu of five (over-priced) items available over the bar.

    Not a holiday hotel, but recommended for an overnight stay on business/before early flight, etc.
