“Chimney's Guest House”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

I am writing this review as i am sitting in the lobby of the guest house. It is a charming place, great service, missed breakfast. My room is nicely furnished, clean, yet a little on the small side, the bathroom was a good size and clean , nice clean towels There is coffee and tea in the room with a pot for boiling water. What was lacking is paper tissue (as in Kleenex) not major, there is a lack of trash cans in the facility, not in my room. I hated leaving trash in the tray :(, but i did. I found everything to be clean. and anytime i want either tea or coffee, they bring it for me.

Enjoyed the place and will stay here again.

Stayed here with husband for 1 night prior to our departure from Stansted airport for my husbands surprise 50th birthday week away.

4 star with silver award. Lovely traditional, B&B very clean, fabulous warm welcome from Ian the proprietor, who kindly brought us a cafetiere of fresh coffee, biscuits and chocolates on arrival after our long drive from Yorkshire in the lounge.

Staying in the spacious double at the top of the steep stairs " the cambridge" room with twin aspect windows. Chunky solid wood furniture and nice touches such as free wifi, container of biscuits, milk in a flask, coffee, herbal teas, tissues, fluffy thick quality bathrobes. Flat screen tv altho struggled to see once in bed - then we were not bothered! Clock with iPod dock! There is also a Fan in the room for when it gets a little too hot in the night.

I like my mattress a little firmer but a good night sleep all the same, I also like my pillows fuller, sort that you sink into, wrap around your head when you lay on them!

Bathroom a nice compact size with fabulous quality thick white towels!
Ian kindly gave us a map indicating where all the restaurants are - all in walking distance. 2 minute walk from the dog and duck pub, sat outside for a drink - locals very welcoming as was the landlord.

Recommend the Chinese restaurant in 5-10 minute walk near Mountfitchet castle, Crimson8 close to the sports car garage selling lotus and tvr's!

Good choice for breakfast, don't get such a choice at some hotels! Fruit, cereals, array of homemade jams/marmalades, lovely coffee in china cups!

We both opted for the full English, not at all greasy or heavy on the stomach. Field mushroom, tomatoes, bacon, fried bread, egg, sausage and toast.

Other options were kippers, smoked haddock and poached eggs!

Only 15 mins from Stansted airport, excellent for stopover pre or post flight! Only a small establishment - they have kept thw personal touch which is lovely.

Great value only £88 for both of us.
Will recommend to others and stay here again if flying from Stansted

If you want a five star experience and a night away Chimneys in Stanstead Mountfitchet is the B & B to stay. Everything is perfect, from the delightful bedrooms all themed with top class shampoos etc and tea coffee with fresh milk in a little flask and excellent biscuits. Every little thing has been thought about and we would really recommend them. Even a little soft dog on the bed and a hot water bottle in the wardrobes plus white towelling bath robes.

When we arrived to stay as we were going to a wedding rehearsal and meal in the evening we were asked if we wanted tea or coffee and it was served in their lounge with a silver tea service and lots of biscuits.

Breakfast was superb with a great choice of cereals and fresh fruit salad. Lots of fruit juices and home made jams and marmalade made with whisky - a favourite of mine.

The cooked breakfast was amazing and nothing again was too much trouble. Thank you both for making our stay great and a good start to the day of the wedding of our son.

Room Tip: There are only four rooms which we had taken three of them and they were all super.

Booked in here for 1 night prior to a wedding at Parklands. Was a lovely, welcoming, and warming atmosphere - like a home away from home with welcoming and friendly hosts for which nothing was too much trouble!

My only gripe was that both me and my partner found the doors and ceiling in the shower really low... this is the only gripe - but otherwise 4 stars! Thanks.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Chimneys for a family wedding, Can not fault our stay at all,warm welcome from Iain on our arrival. Our two double rooms had everything we needed and more. We required a cab for a early start to the wedding the following morning and Iain booked it for us.The breakfast was superb with the offer of more tea and toast . Would highly recommend to everyone!!!!!

We have just returned from one night at the Chimneys and can't recommend it highly enough. Everything was perfect, our twin room was beautifully fitted out, and the attention to detail from the lovely owners was obvious everywhere. I have stayed at hotels twice the price and have found them nowhere near as good as The Chimneys. I'm still recovering from the sight of 6 homemade marmalades and jams for breakfast, I don't think even Claridges would run to that.

Booked three of Chimney's four rooms in May 2012 for self and family members ahead of my wedding the following day, they then stayed an extra night. One room was out of commission at the time but no inconvenience was caused. Owners were friendly and incredibly helpful and kind, dropping everything to drive the best man to the wedding venue when a local taxi didn't show. I took the single room, had a solid night's kip and enjoyed a craking, nerve settling breakfast the next morning. Would v. much recommend Chimneys as a nice, friendly place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area.
