The Willows Guest House
Ranked #2 of 15 Takeley B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Spent the night before our early flight from stansted at this great little B&B, the rooms are perfect, it was a cold night and the heat hit us, radiators were on full! huge beds, and hot showers, a tray for tea & coffee, along with a tray of other items which you could purchase.
The landlady was most informative on arrival, and booked an early taxi for us to the airport.
On our return she met us in the "pick up" area of stansted airport, and brought us back to our waiting car. A great place to stay, we have previously used the radisson blu at stansted, but this is better!!
we shall be back! thankyou.

Room Tip: all the rooms are good!

I stayed here with my husband and daughter in a triple room(actually four beds, one double two singles). Rooms were nicely decorated and the beds very comfortable and nice linen. The bathroom was all clean and tidy. The lady who met us was friendly and helpful in advising on a place to eat as we arrived about 8 pm. We did not have breakfast in the morning but did take advantage of the honesty box where we made some porridge and had a cup of tea. The weather was cold when we stayed but the rooms were warm and cosy and we all slept well.
In the morning we were taken by our hostess directly to the departure gates at Stansted. This was a short ride and we left our car at the B&B. It was all easy and calm way to start the day and I would recommend this place. It was slightly difficult to find as the postcode was not easy to find on the website not sure if it is on there at all! However we found the village and then rang. Well done comfortable and satisfied customers.

An ideal and value for money place to stay for Stansted Airport, just 10 mins away. I made two double room bookings, one for us and one for my brother and his wife, the rooms were next to each other so very convenient. On booking you receive a full and comprehensive e-mail with additional information and offering transfers. When we arrived we were given a very warm welcome and again we were given invaluable information regarding parking at the airport as there were road works closing one of the roads into the terminal. They didn't have to give us this information but we would have been in a mess if they hadn't so very grateful for that. There are plentiful complimentary teas, coffee etc and a hospitality tray which was good, everything on it. £1 and you just leave the money in an honesty box. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and the bathroom has a powerful shower. We arrived on the coldest night of the year and I was cold in bed that night (we had a room with 2 windows) so if like me, you feel the cold, take a warm pair of pyjamas; but in all fairness it was a bitterly cold night and the Willows couldn't help that! Would stay again without a doubt and highly recommended.

We have absolutely nothing bad to say about Willows Guest House!
The service was excellent, the owners were really helpful and nice! We got a transport from and to the airport, which was really easy and super good service! I can recommend this place to everyone!

Room Tip: We spent the night in room 3, but I'm sure all the rooms are as good as ours.

Owners friendly and responsive. I stayed 1 night because of an early departure from Stansted (4mins drive to return a rental car) the next morning. Room functional with tea tray etc, good wireless internet access. Overall recommended and value for (not a lot of) money.

We stayed on the 17th August 2012 Sunday and we were delighted with every aspect of the stay. We loved the room , the area is quiet, the facilities were excellent and the two owners Su and Kev very nice people. After staying in the nearby De Salis and the expensive Holiday Inn in previous trips this was very much a welcome break and we would definately stay in this beautiful guest house in the future.

I stayed for a night in March. At the ensuite room I found every toiletterie to be needed, also tea/coffee/biscuits/TV etcetera. The owners Kevin and Sue are professional and most caring. The location is isolated but the transfers and hospitality compensate it.
Excellent service, to be highly reccommended for anyone passing through Stansted.
