HAMPTON BY HILTON STANSTED AIRPORT

Hampton By Hilton at Stansted airport was my only choice when I realised I needed a airport hotel. There are other hotels at the airport but this one, has a direct five minute walk into the terminal building. And as I still have to use a crutch with my bad knees, this was a easy decision. I arrived at 8pm the evening before my flight and the reception was packed with people. I asked the reception staff if it was always like this and she said it was. I am not a fan of big crowds they make me anxious. I left and went straight to my room.

The Room

There was a full listing on the television. Just what you would have at a UK home.

The room at the Hampton By Hilton was very nice with a big comfy bed all for myself. Complimentary wi-fi is always welcomed. And the bathroom with a large shower was a big plus.

But one of my pet hates are these shower gels locked on the wall. I just think they look tacky.

The Free Breakfast

Something else I like was the free breakfast. This started at 4 am and I was there. Both hot and cold options. I found some marmite so I was happy.

Distance to Airport Terminal

The website states a five minute walk. For me it was more like fifteen minutes due to my complications. This is the walkway you use and go past the airport train station. It was surprising how small it was considering this is an airport railway station. My own personal opinion, is that not a lot of planning or money went into transport to Stansted. From central London, an hourly train, but nothing from east of England. You are expected to either drive, get a taxi or take a bus.

Future Stay

Yes I would stay here again, it fits my needs. And I am actually staying here twice this year so far.  And I would recommend this to anyone wanting a hotel close to Stansted Airport.
