Post code given in your instructions takes you to nearby Hilton hotel, not the car park . Also although we prepaid we were asked to pay the day rate when we entered our ticket when exiting.

At Stansted the busses were extremely slow. Oth taking us to and from the airport, they certainly did not live up to the advertised waiting times.

Good signposts - transfer bus, the driver was good for both outgoing and homebound flights. We will be using APH again next year.

Not as good as APH car park at Manchester. Journey to Terminal longer. Long walk with cases to bus stop. No help with putting cases on and off bus. Would explore an alternative if travelling from Stansted again.

The car parking was clearly marked with regard to which area to park in. There was a bit of a wait for the bus, but not too arduous.

Would park there again

We normally use APH long stay car parking at Gatwick & it runs like a well oiled machine.
Unfortunately we cannot say the same about APH long stay parking at Stansted. Poor directions given from the start, tried to contact the given phone upon arrival as APH hadn't any signage at the long stay car park so we were unsure whether this was where we were supposed to be, so called their contact number, no reply so had to ask at reception area where due to computer problems our car reg. was not recognised so we had to take a ticket from machine as if we had never pre-booked. Not a great start!
The bus transfer to terminal was fine.
Upon our return to the UK at around midnight the disorganisation began once more. After clearing customs, we were greeted with very long queues waiting for the long stay car park buses. One eventually arrived after 20mins from us joining the queue. This clearly was not adequate and the scrum for places began, not very dignified I'm afraid, but in sheer desperation to get home. The bus was very overloaded and a safety issue. There should have been at least 3 waiting for the volume of passengers, which they would have been aware of . All in all a very disappointing experience & would think very carefully about using APH again at Stansted.

The signage for the buses was ridiculous - hand written and inconsistant with permanent signs. The regularity of buses back to car very poor. My worst on site parking experience.

The transfer from car park to airport took so much longer than necessary, minimum half an hour if not longer. I actually can drive home in half an hour. It took ages until bus arrived, journey took certainly not 5 minutes but more than 25 minutes, bus was full and sweaty. Poor value for money. Definitely taking taxi next time.

Coach on return to car park was over full & it was complete chaos, not fun when travelling with tired children. When attempting to exit car park, we were advised that we owed £198 in parking charges, despite having prepaid. It transpired that, despite notifying a change of vehicle & having relevant paperwork, computer had no record of new vehicle. Easily sorted fortunately...
