A very high quality Bed and Breakfast. Ian, the owner, is friendly and helpful with a pot of tea and biscuits on arrival and informative conversation. The room was great with a very comfortable bed, lovely shower and free wifi. There is a good selection of breakfast choices, made with good quality ingredients. Every detail was spot on. Beware low...

We only stayed for one night as we had an early flight the following morning. We arrived early but we were warmly greeted by the owner- even made a nice pot of tea and biscuits for us after having a long drive. Room was well decorated in keeping with the age and style of the property. Bed was comfortable and...

We spent three nights in Chimneys. Great hospitality, very helpful couple, really comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. Old listed building, but modern bathroom. Low beams, so mind your head! Very central with railway station and restaurants nearby. However, our room was very quiet.

I stayed at this guest house the night before an early flight from Stansted. It is ten minutes drive to the airport, and about a 30 second walk from Stansted Mountfitchet station so the location is great. The owner was very friendly and the room was very cosy and comfortable. Only had time for a quick slice of toast and...

A warm welcome is the start into a cosy stay in this perfectly located romantic guest house. The very friendly owners have an eye for details, like the lovely teddy bear on every bed. Another extra is the friendly dog. As well as the delicious and rich breakfast. Everything is provided, even helpful gardening books for garden lovers in the...

We wanted a homely environment accommodation for our twins and this was a perfect place. Very homely, tastefully decorated, clean, kind owners.

We received a warm welcome on arrival and, after being shown to our rooms, were served a tray of tea, coffee and biscuits in the sitting room. Off-road parking is available and free wi-fi in the bedrooms. The building is an old one so the stairs to the bedrooms were quite steep but the rooms themselves were beautifully decorated. The...

We stayed last night. It's very quaint and homely and we had a beautiful & spacious room. We awoke late and missed breakfast time but were amazed to still be offered a delicious full English breakfast by the kind and friendly owners half an hour after it finished! Thank you so much for a lovely stay, we will definitely be...

Upon your arrival, you would feel like visiting a friend's or relative's house. The standard of cleanliness is one of the best I have ever seen for a hotel/guest house. Very friendly milieu, and of course I was absolutely delighted by an excellent breakfast (quite generous and perfectly delicious) just before my departure.

Chimneys is in a very convenient location being 5 minutes' walk from the station. Our twin room was spacious and clean with all the facilities we could wish for. The breakfast was varied and the home-made jams and marmalade were especially good. The owners were very helpful.

“The smallest room with a single bed is just right for a single. The other guest rooms have either a double or two single beds so are good for both single travellers or more than one person. All are very comfortable and quiet with their own bathrooms.”
