If you're looking for a hotel that offers value for money and is comfortable, up-to-date and close to the airport, you'll love the Stansted Holiday Inn Express. You won't find some of the frills and fancies of other Stansted hotels; after all, the Holiday Inn Express is a limited-service hotel, but the free buffet breakfast, the free lounge-area wifi and the fact that it's five minutes from the airport could make it seem otherwise.
Rooms at the Holiday Inn Express are designed to help you get a flawless night's sleep: all are climate controlled and double glazed, with blackout curtains and you can choose your own pillows. If you're feeling a little more sociable and don't want to spend the whole time in your room, you can soak up the jovial atmosphere of the hotel's lively lounge, which doubles up as the bar and restaurant.
The Holiday Inn Express is an attractive choice for families. It has more than 60 bedrooms that sleep two adults and two small children, plus there are a number of connecting rooms for larger groups. The hotel offers free breakfast to all guests, and under 13s get a free three-course meal with each adult who buys a main course - so parents won't have to dip far into the holiday budget.
We recommend the Express by Holiday Inn Stansted for:
Families - with the 'kids eat free' offer and free breakfast for all, parents will have plenty left over for holiday treats!.
The budget-conscious - it's one of our lowest-priced hotels at Stansted and with extras like the free wifi and free breakfast, you really are getting a whole lot more for your money.
A sound night's sleep - double glazing, blackout curtains, comfy beds and a choice of either soft or firm pillows are bound to help you catch some much-needed ZZZs.
Check-in is from 2pm. You must check out before 11am.

A family-friendly hotel that's convenient, great value for money and just 10 minutes from check-in.
You can check in with the friendly staff anytime from 14:00.
Settle in at the Holiday Inn Express lounge. It's full of comfy seats for lounging, whether you're watching news and sports on the live TV, surfing the wifi which runs throughout the hotel or enjoying a relaxing hot drink from their Costa coffee machine.
The hotel is very proud of its Rotisserie restaurant, and it's easy to see why. From 18:00 to 23:00, you can enjoy a menu that's jam-packed with delicious dishes, as well as great deals for all the family. The rotisserie oven takes centre stage - watch as the tender chicken turns golden brown right in front of you. Not a meat fan? There's plenty more on the menu to tickle your tastebuds, like saucy pastas, freshly-made pizzas and an unlimited salad bar that's sure to hit the spot. And with a tempting selection of mouth-watering desserts, a meal at the Rotisserie is sure to leave you spinning.
After dinner, a drink might be right on cue at the hotel's bar. Treat yourself to a glass of your favourite wine, beer or cocktail in the laid-back atmosphere, or shoot some pool in the hotel's lounge. Either way, you can sit back and relax with a drink in hand before you even get on a plane. The bar is open all day, every day - plus, from 18:00-22:00, you can order from their own menu of light meals and snacks.
Your stylish bedroom is designed with your comfort in mind. There's free wifi access, a TV and a soft, cosy bed that's bound to have you sleeping in no time. You even get to choose between firm and soft pillows - yet another little luxury!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and Holiday Inn Express certainly agrees, as your morning meal won't cost you a penny extra. The hotel's fresh buffet breakfast is served from 06:00-10:00 and includes both English and continental options.
When it's time to check out, getting to the airport is a breeze. Transfers run every 30 minutes from the hotel's doors direct to the terminal and takes just 10 minutes. You won’t have to worry about your car, either, as it will stay parked right outside the hotel. If the Holiday Inn Express is particularly busy, you may be asked to park at the Mid Stay car park, but the hotel will give you instructions if this is the case.
