We arrived after a 2 hr drive from Kent and were welcomed with "Will you remove your shoes". For the rest of the time we wandered up and down the house in our stocking feet. Now while I am happy to do that at home, maybe some slippers could have been provided or not have such a light coloured carpet !
From there we were asked for the balance of our payment up front which I found strange as this was the first time I have experience this, I could understand if we were leaving early in the morning but our flight was not till 11.30.
The rooms were very clean and all mod cons were there, bed was a little soft for me but that is me I suppose. Bathroom shower screen was well and truly masticked to the bath with a large sign telling you NOT TO OPEN !!
Breakfast was good although the wooly mushrooms did nothing for us.
We were looking forward to a Thai meal but were advised before we arrived this would not be possible due to illness and we were offered an alternative which we declined, However the nearest pub is 15 mins walk and not really the most cellubrious of establishments. The next one is a further 20 mins and to be fair the landlady run us home to save our legs.
For us, we would prefer to stay in Bishops Stortford in future as I am sure there is a larger choice of evening meals.
