I stayed here with friends for a single night before departing from Stansted the next day. The hotel is ideally situated for Stansted airport.
The rooms themselves are separated from the main pub/restaurant building in a courtyard style next to the car park. As a result, they were set back from the road and extremely quiet and pleasant to sleep in.
The rooms are basic, with comfortable beds and clean bedding. There was a TV, tea and coffee and a hairdryer. Despite being quite outdated, the general condition of the room was excellent. The bathroom had a powerful hot shower (over bathtub) and good ventilation. There were no towels in the room - but I am confident they would have been provided if we had asked.
The people were fantastic - we were invited into the pub for drinks, food and a pub quiz. The owners arranged for our airport transfer in the early hours of the morning, facilitated car parking whilst we were out of the country and also picked us up on our return.
A great price for what we got and somewhere I would definitely consider for flying from Stansted again.
