“Home from home”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Just arrived home back in France, and just had to write a few lines about this excellent accommodation- delivered to Avalon yesterday evening by my family for an overnight stay.
Welcome by staff was unbelievable, offering my family and grandchildren(age 3 and 4), who I was just delivering home to their parents after a 2 week holiday with us in France, drinks and snacks before their 2 hour journey home, made both myself and my family feel at home immediately.
Exceptionally clean, bed very comfortable- breakfast basic but very adequate, with a large choice.
Shuttle service very good, and right on time.
Thank you all for a very relaxing time with you. Your hard work was very much appreciated

Room Tip: I was in room 4 which was on the ground floor next to the kitchen- I did hear clients arrive at the...

This is the cleanest accommodation I've ever been to in the UK. The staff is so unbelievably lovely! And the service is just perfect. I am also impressed by their prices. Nothing to complain about. The only thing that would make the experience more perfect is soy milk in the fridge.. haha.. just kidding. The guy who wrote the negative comment must have been a troll.. there is no way that this place comes even close to his description!!

Nothing fancy here. Decent price, it's a bit off the beaten path. I drove there, stayed the night, dropped off the rental car in the AM. The room is clean, very basic. Breakfast likewise. Free wifi, I had to pay 3 pounds extra to park overnight. It's too far to walk to the airport (I'll sometimes do that). Don't let the 3 stars scare you off--it's good, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I just needed an overnight airport stay.

Stayed here for an early flight from Stansted. I tried to arrange car parking with Avalon, which is much cheaper than Stansted one, but didn't get very far - the pre-arrival communication was pretty limited, so my expectations were low.

On arrival, the lady, who runs the hotel was great, very welcoming and explained everything in detail. The hotel is clean and neat and the room looked inviting and comfy.

They offer a self-service breakfast, so you can have some toast / cerial and a coffee no matter what time your flight is and if you do decide to leave your car with them, they organise transfers to and from the airport during the day.

Would definately use it again - great value for money.

wonderful clean accomadation , well worth the money so cheap , we stayed overnight after travelling from cornwall to get a flight early the next morning , we arrived late due to our taxi not turning up on time and the lady waited up until 2.30 am to let us in and she still made us feel most welcome , she even made sure our taxi was all sorted out for the morning just in case she needed to arrange a lift with their shuttle service ! The breakfast was self serve but again for the price it was great , i would use again !

Very clean and nice rooms. Id recommend making your own way there if you dont have too much luggage as their transfer services/fees are confusing and just too much. The is a pub in the village with good food , though id personally recommend staying in Stansted Mountfitchett village as there are lots more pub/restaurant options.

I stayed in Avalon room 2 (ground floor, window overlooking front yard) in April 2012. I have to admit that having read some of the less-positive comments on tripadvisor I was a bit apprehensive of how good the room and airport transfer service was going to be - yet I wanted a place to sleep in close proximity to the airport. I have to say that once arrived, what I saw EXCEEDED my expectations. A very cosy and very clean room, cosy bed - what else is needed when you've got a flight the following day???

Room 2 was classed as semi-ensuite, which meant a shower cubicle in the corner of a room, but a shared toilet, which was just outside of the room anyway. Towels were provided. The room also had a TV, an electric kettle, a cup and tea/coffee/hot chocolate assortment). No problem with the noise at night, which some other tripadvisor users reported.

Airport transfer was excellent - only 3 pounds (where else would it be so cheap and convenient if the owners did not trouble themselves with organising the morning transfers for their guests!?). From Avalon transfers were every hour from 4am onwards, Mariola was the driver and the people carrier that she uses is officially registered as a taxi.

Overall: I would definitely stay again at Avalon when flying from London Stansted again! I DO RECOMMEND!!!
