Hotel Overview:The Radisson Stansted hotel is right next to the only passenger terminal at the airport. A walkway which is fully enclosed connects the terminal and the hotel and takes approximately 3 minutes to walk. The hotel is less than 3 miles from the M11 motorway which connects with both east London and the M25 London orbital motorway. The M11 itself is now linked to the airport via a dedicated dual carriageway making the road links seamless. Owing to its its location there are no amenities immediately surrounding the hotel, save for the landside facilities of the airport itself. Just outside of the airport grounds is the Birchanger Services by junction 8 of the M11 where there are some fast food outlets and small shops. Nearest place of interest is probably the 400 years old Gardens of Eastern Lodge just past Great Dunmow at 2.2 miles.
