Positive Reviews

Ideal for travelling in and out of Stansted

Reviewers agree this guesthouse is an excellent accommodation option close to Stansted Airport. The guesthouse is not only just five minutes' drive from the airport, but the family who run the establishment offer free transfers within certain hours, which many reviewers say was a great convenience.

A peaceful location

Reviewers are also positive about the area surrounding the establishment. Past guests liked that they could enjoy a good night's sleep as the guesthouse is in a quiet part of the countryside, which also made for a very picturesque setting.

Lovely and welcoming

Past guests generally agree that the rooms at this guesthouse are comfortable, nicely decorated and cleaned to a high standard. Reviewers liked the inclusion of complimentary items such as tea, biscuits and chocolate.

Negative Reviews

A bit isolated without a car

Some guests found the location a little isolated when travelling without a car, particularly when visiting in winter when night falls early. The airport transfer means there is no trouble getting to the airport, but exploring the surrounding area can be a little difficult without access to a vehicle.

No kitchen or on-site restaurant

As the hotel provides a microwave along with basic snacks such as porridge and noodles, most guests do not complain about the lack of kitchen facilities or on-site restaurant, but it is worth noting for future guests.

Difficult to find at night

A few reviewers say the hotel is difficult to find when arriving in the dark, as it is located at the end of a narrow lane with no sign on the main road.
