There are so many different types of Stansted Airport accommodation options available to you if you are staying in the area, that it can sometimes make it difficult to choose. We’ve put together some tips for you to bear in mind so that you can make the right choice and get the most out of your stay.
As well as the obvious considerations of comfort and proximity, some hotels will offer you further benefits, such as parking or shuttle services to and from the airport.
Others may have additional leisure facilities on the premises or nearby that you can take advantage of. It’s worth checking whether the accommodation you have your eye on offers any of these.
Airport parking is a problem faced by the majority of flyers – the parking offered at the airport itself is expensive. Some nearby hotels, including DeSalis, offer parking packages to their guests, which is especially useful for those flying from Stansted who need to leave their car somewhere accessible for the duration of their trip. For more information see our Park, Stay and Fly packages.
Shuttle services to and from the airport
Another issue faced by flyers is how to get from their Stansted accommodation to the airport itself. When choosing where you will stay, it is worth checking whether the hotel you book with has a shuttle service to and from the airport.
DeSalis offers the convenience of an airport shuttle service to all our guests. Our shuttle buses can have you at the Stansted Airport terminal in fewer than five minutes and they run every twenty minutes throughout the day. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that!
If you will be spending some time at the hotel, it is also worth checking what other facilities they have available to keep you entertained. Is there a bar or restaurant on the premises or nearby? Do they have any leisure facilities, such as a gym or golf course? Do they have WiFi access so that you can stay in touch with the office or your family?
Finally, it’s all very well choosing comfortable accommodation with parking, a shuttle service and extra facilities, but if the hotel isn’t close to the airport you will be wasting valuable time when you travel between the two. Just because a hotel or B&B advertises itself as Stansted Airport accommodation doesn’t necessarily mean it is very nearby, so do check the actual proximity before booking.
Hopefully this has given you some idea of what to look for when choosing your Stansted Airport accommodation. DeSalis offers all of the above mentioned benefits, so please see our website or give us a call if you are interested in booking a stay at our Stansted Airport accommodation.
