“Another excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

We have stayed at the Mill House, Takely, Essex , on 6 occasions now and will continue to do so as it suits our requirement when flying out from Stansted. We can’t recommend this first class accommodation enough.
The room was immaculate and very comfortable with a large en-suite with bath and for the winter periods under floor heating. Breakfast is first class and sets you up for the long day ahead. The quality of his locally sourced food is excellent and the breakfast menu choice is outstanding. In an area that is not well provided for quality food Brian and his wife also offer a first class evening meal Thai menu. Highly recommended
Mill House also offers Wi Fi and flat screen TV allowing you to carry out and continue your business or just relax and make use of the entertainment on offer. .
Brian is very much organised and everything is arranged to the customer’s requirements and request, we can't thank him enough for that.
Finally the offer of return airport transfer if flying out from Stansted is quick, trouble free and a great help to your journey ahead.
I would recommend Mill House to anyone looking for comfort, quality and good value.
Thanks again to Brian and his wife.

Room Tip: Double rooom at the rear of the property with large en-suite (bath)

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.

My brother and I recently stayed at this B&B prior to a flight from Stansted Airport. What a great start to our holiday! Free transport to and from the airport, spotlessly clean and well-appointed rooms, a delicious home-cooked dinner with a bottle of wine, and splendid full English breakfast next morning, all with very friendly and attentive service from the delightful owners. All in all excellent value. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

I have been staying in this B&B several times when using Stansted Airport and find it most useful. The rooms are well maintained, Brian the owner is very friendly and the breakfast is fabulous.
It is convenient leaving the car there (while being away for a few days) for a good price and getting free transport and pick-up from the airport.

We have stayed at this B&B for overnight stays, for the last five years.To us this takes away the hassle and headache of driving from Kent to Stansted for an early or mid morning flight!
As it is only 3 miles from the airport (less than a 10 minute journey), we can leave close to checking in time.
Rooms are of good sizes with spotless en suite bathrooms, and very comfortable beds.
Breakfast is freshly cooked with a good choice of cereals and cooked breakfast.
We are very frequent travellers and find this service invaluable.
Brian takes you to and from the airport in your own vehicle and charges a very small fee for overnight parking.
Many thanks Brian, keep up the good work and see you again soon!

Room Tip: Be aware there is obviously some noise from the airport and main road, so if you are a light sleeper...

This was the first time we have used this B&B and we are now in the process of re booking for next year. We have already recommended this B&B to friends and family. We had an excellent stay everything went smoothly and we had a comfortable room with a large bathroom. The room was very warm with under floor heating and the breakfast was made to order and superb. Brian Durham uses your own car to drive to and from the drop off at the airport. I found this a great help as minimal handling of heavy suitcases etc, and a quick efficient pick up made this an ideal place to stay. We found this accommodation to be economical and less than leaving the car at a car park at Stansted Airport. Good communication before and after our stay with Brian. Well done and we look forward to seeing you soon.

After the first time we used the B&B facilities for an overnight stay plus parking for the duration of our holiday, things changed slightly. To whit, your own car is now to be used for the airport drop-off and pick-up. Not really a big deal as Brian stated he was comprehensively insured to do this. However, having accepted the booking on this basis, when we arrived we were told that there might be an issue on the day we were returning to Stansted. He was having family to visit and there was 'a slight possibility' that he would be out! He suggested we took a taxi from the airport and whilst this seemed to make some sense at the 'slight possibilty', when this became an actuality he seemed to think that I was 'ok' with bearing the cost myself!!
