The 4* Novotel London Stansted Airport has been substantially refurbished to provide Novotel levels of comfort and style and includes the addition of family and connecting rooms. The renovation also encompasses all restaurants and bars, meetings and events spaces and the hotel’s 250 bedrooms.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with AccorHotels to unveil our newly refurbished hotel and bring the highly regarded Novotel brand to Stansted," says Surinder Arora, founder and chairman of the Arora Group. "Our ongoing investment into the hotel ensures that we continue to offer guests the very best quality facilities.”

Cristina Deoliveira-Frewen, SVP Franchise Hotels, AccorHotels UK & IRE, adds: "We are excited to bring the Novotel brand to Stansted for the first time where we believe our offer to business and leisure audiences will be very strong.

"This extends Novotel's excellent presence at UK airports, and the total Novotels in the UK to 35. We are also delighted to extend our partnership with Arora and look forward to shared success following their significant refurbishment of this property and the successful transformation to the Novotel brand."

Novotel London Stansted Airport features 250 guestrooms and eight well-equipped, versatile meeting and events spaces catering for up to 250 guests, theatre style. There is also an all-day dining restaurant, gym for guests, café and bar and 700 car parking spaces.

The hotel is located within the airport perimeter, minutes away from the terminal, and 30 minutes from central London via train. There are shuttle buses to the airport terminal every 30 minutes as well as a competitive parking solution available when leaving a car at the airport.

This is the Arora Group’s third partnership with AccorHotels; the group also manages and operates Sofitel London Gatwick and Sofitel London Heathrow.
