Latest Stansted Airport parking reviews
Safe location to park however a long walk to the airport, about 30mins. Uber cost £21. I think the shuttle was not available due to COVID.Olusola
Easy to find the parking space.18-20 minutes walk from Stanstad Airport. No walkways to the airport but this is not the Holiday Inn fault.Gabor
Very good location, but have a difficult if you walk to the airport like pedestrianIgor
Really really good parking! We were a day late as we weren’t able to fly back as planned and they were so kind and didn’t charge us the extra. So thank you! Will definitely use again!Lana
Nice place with plentiful parking. Easy access and signs clearly labelled. I would give it 5 stars if not for the trek that is required to get to the Terminal building. The hike in itself is fine and is clearly laid out in the description, however quite considerable stretches of this trek are along a busy dual carriageway with no walking path or pavement and requires you to walk on the grass verge next to the main road. I was lucky to have done it on a beautiful sunny day but I imagine that the same trek on a rainy day or with a suitcase would not be as fun.Miha
everything ok - 20 mins walk from StanstedAlessandro
Easy to find and plenty of spaces. I used this space during the coronavirus restrictions, when there was no shuttle bus to the airport. I needed half an hour to walk to the airport, but it was not a problem.Ferenc
Would park again! Great value for moneyJaanika
