But never mind the contents of the luggage, what does the actual type of luggage you carry, roll or push say about you?

What makes a great Stansted Hotel Room?

The room you stay in as a guest needs to meet your individual needs, for example if you are a business traveller then you will want a desk to work from perhaps, plenty of sockets and access to the internet. If you are a family then your needs will be different , but this aside there are some important aspects that make up a great room

First is cleanliness, there is nothing worse than staying in a hotel and there being visible signs that someone has been there before you. Yes, you know it’s a hotel but you don’t want to find a half used bar of soap or unwanted hair in the bathroom, or anyones rubbish in the bin. As far as possible you want to feel that it’s your room only, even if it is for a short period of time.

We are very lucky in this corner of Essex to be blessed with so many fantastic restaurants, many of which are just a stones throw from the Airport. If you are staying near to Stansted Airport then you might want to venture out to eat and you certainly won’t struggle to find somewhere no matter what your favourite food.

Table service is offered so it feels a bit more special that visiting a buffet style restaurant but you get to try lots of different types of food. It’s located in the centre of Bishops Stortford which is located right next to Stansted Airport. There is plenty of parking available.
