We stayed for three nights which included a weekend. The staff are OK but superficially friendly if you can find them. The rooms are not in a 'quiet location', the main road with buses and cars run all night so do not expect to sleep, the road is next to the rooms. There is a night club 5 minutes walk away and at the weekend all you hear all night are the drunks. The rooms have showers but the basin for the shower was not clean it needed a good scrub. The beds are quite hard and there are no duvets but sort of thick blankets. No breakfast and no food in the evening. If all you want to do is sleep avoid we found better places in the middle of the town. Vastly over-priced for what it is.

I booked to stay here the night before flying from stansted, its a quirky little pub with the accomadation in chalets outside and there is parking the rooms are spotlessly clean we had a couple of drinks in the pub which does not do food in the evening but it is only 5 minutes walk from the town centre where there are plenty of places to eat. It is only a 10 minute drive to the airport as well so convenient

These rooms are situated in a lodge alongside the Jolly Brewers pub. Excellent compact accomodation with comfy beds very clean bathroom and all the comforts of home. The pub is a little tired but what you expect from an old world pub. Manager is very welcoming and I couldnt fault the rooms. Great for town ..just a few minutes walk from the centre. Parking is right outside your room and there is no need to go into the pub if you dont want to as there is no formal check out. You just leave when you want. I will stay again when I next visit the family

The rooms are good value for money in a town location with all mod cons including multi channel TV and free wifi
Its got a motel arrangement and I liked it as I could park my car directly outside my room and had the choice of either being completely independent of the pub or going in it. You can come and go as you please.
The staff are very helpful and the pub is not expensive and great if you want good beer and a typical friendly English pub atmosphere. It would be good if they offered food all day but local eateries are close by
I have recommended it to friends

The prefabricated lodge style rooms are only 30' (10 meters) from busy road where the traffic runs throughout the night, so if you want to sleep forget it. Because the rooms are made from a lightweight prefabricated material, there is little insulation for either noise, nor heat/cold. Carpets were dirty, toilet was 'streaked' in the bowl, basin did not drain. TV was tiny with a badly pixelated picture. Noisy because of night club next door so drunks shouting in the middle of the night is a given. Staff were superficially polite; I was charged £ 20 for not checking out before 11.00 am, I was not told about this, when I complained, I was told if I wanted my bag back, I would have to pay the £ 20! I would not stay here again, I found Bishop Stortford charming with the notable exception of this very expensive (for the level of accomodation and service) 'hotel'. This is all that epitomises 'rip-off' british hotels, they ought to be ashamed of themselves.

Room Tip: Avoid the place at all costs!

The rooms are good for the price but the carpets could do with a wash.the staff are very grumpy and when you want to order a drink from the bar you will need to go outside to the smoking area where you will find the bartender with the regular customers.this hotel is ok if you just want somewhere to lay your head with no involvement from staff.
