Room and facilities were good. Good wifi. Big cosy bed, great shower. No evening meal. Ate at recommended local pub - food there was very poor quality. Not good sound partitions... Other guests arrived at all hours and disturbed our sleep. Ok for a night stop-over before an early flight. Eat out before arrival.

Had two nights here on business at the airport. Considering how close to the airport hardly any plane noise so good nights sleep, comfortable bed helped with this. Early starters no option for a cooked breakfast but that was no problem for me as shouldn't have one too often anyway! The bathroom for the blue room is not ensuite but...

A hotel which is located only 5 minutes away by car to Stansted airport, a nice charming B&B with nice rooms and clean bathrooms where you can leave your car after you leave for only £5 per night (£9.50 is taxi fee to the airport). Highly recommended for Stanted.

This was my second visit to the White House. The consistency of service. We were met on arrival and welcomed by our hosts. We had a different room this time, which was very clean with very luxurious cotton linen on the beds. We can also recommend their sister business the 'Lion & Lamb' for dinner which is just down the...

I made a last minute booking at the White house as I had to be at the airport at 5 am. Linda was most accommodating and fitted me in even though she was fully booked. I was given a lovely room with its own bathroom. The White House has a very high standard of cleanliness and all of the extras...

Little place off the Standsted airport. Make sure to call 10 minutes before arriving as the own a pub down the road and might be there. Wished we would have stayed here our entire trip to London. Bed with attached bath was excellent! Breakfast in the morning was also very delicious and filling!

I feel like I’ve just discovered a bit of a gold mine! Five minutes away from Stansted Airport but on the opposite side to all the flight paths. Did not hear or see a single plane all evening and night. I might have as well been tucked away in the heart of the countryside. Actually, I was! An amazing bed...

We have stayed here three times when flying out from Stansted in the morning. Lovely, clean and comfy, and always welcoming. The Lion and Lamb, their pub, a short distance away, is fabulous, i had steak pie with real pastry - delicious.
