“Never Again!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2007

As a treat, we decided to stay overnight close to the airport thereby giving us a chance to unwind and have a nice meal. We needed a triple room as we had our teenage daughter with us. It was terrible. We had the attic room and the eaves were so low that my husband & I had to carefully get out of bed so as not to whack our heads. The bed creaked and we could feel every spring. It was hot and the only window was a small velux over my daughter's bed. The bathroom in my view was dangerous and the noise when the toilet was flushed was nothing less than scary. The shower just about worked but again the waterworks were enough to raise the dead! I did not think the hotel was clean and we did not feel inclined to eat there. There is nothing else in the village so we found another pub about 20 minutes away. The village itself is beautiful and worth a walk through. The airport service is ok, although a bit further than I thought. Maybe the other rooms were ok, maybe it was just the top room that was a problem, but in my view they should not be letting that room out until work has been done on it.

I stayed here before an early flight from Stansted airport, they offer a Taxi and car parking service. The hotel is fairly basic, the rooms are quite small, but do the job, and were clean, the pub/restaurant was fine in fact we had a good meal there. The car parking and Taxi service worked well.

  • Liked — Convenient to stay for early Stansted flights though it is about 20 minutes by taxi.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

The Inn is around 15 mins from Stansted Airport in a small village in
the middle of nowhere. It was the only Inn in the village and a 10 minute drive in the car to get you anywhere else. The rooms were small and considering it was the 1st April there was no heating on. The evening meal was a bit pricey but it was superb - perfectly cooked and presented. There was free transport to the airport but please check you have the phone number. When we returned the number was not on our booking form and it cost us £16 to get back to pick up
the car.
