“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

After the Terravision staff put us on the bus to the wrong airport, the Terravision manager at Stansted recommended Phoenix Lodge to us. We stayed 2 nights and it was really comfortable. The owner was very friendly and we felt very welcome. We did not have breakfast there so I can't comment on that but our room was clean and tidy and the bed was really comfortable. In a funny way I am glad we missed our flight so we were able to stay in this lovely place.

Booking via email was very efficient. No deposit required.
Only stayed one night in room 2. The room was clean and warm on a cold day. The room had everything that you needed but the decor was a bit dated.
The owner was very friendly.
The breakfast room/reception was a bit odd. Tables tucked against a wall with owners desk and PC behind you.
A stuitable place for a worker to stop over for one night. Close to town centre.
Plenty of parking spaces.
No real complaints.

Room Tip: Room 2 is at the back and away from the main road.

I always use Phoenix Lodge whenever I fly in or out (probably 50 times so far). It is comfortable and well equipped in a very convenient location. The bus stop is just outside (to airport) and it is walking distance to town. The owner is friendly, interesting and helpful.

We stayed here for 2 nights a family of 6 adult and 2 children for a family eventt in BS the rooms were clean and comfortable some with fridge and microwave family rooms had good sized beds. Breakfast was flakes juice etc with as much scrambled egg and toast as you could eat good coffee the breakfast room is small but many guests are travellers and coming in at odd times. All the windows open and car parking is free Hamid was very patient and accommodating we would definitely stay again

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2007

We have stayed at Phenix Lodge twice, prior to early flights from Stansted. Our recent stay was in August 2007. The B&B is within walking distance (12-14 min.) from Bishop,s Stortford Railway station. The rooms were clean and fully equipped. We didn’t try the breakfast due to early flights, but had cereals and youghurt delivered to our room. All in all good value, and a place we would choose again. The near-by pub “The Nag’s Head” was a good place for dining.

I stayed at the Phoenix Lodge with 5 other friends for a birthday. We had 2 triple rooms.
They were both spacious, clean and comfortable and a perfect base for our night out on the town!
Bargain too... and a generous late check-out which was needed.
We'll definately stay when we visit Watford again.
I'd recommend booking a taxi though, we decided to walk home at night and it took about 25 minutes.

I was in London in 30 nov- 3 dic 05. My stay in this hotel were a nightmare. First I have booked my room by internet. It suppose to be a triple room. When I came to the hotel at 11:00pm they have a surprise for me. They tells me that dont have a triple room, only doubles. This nights my husband sleeps in floor, nasty. The towels were smelly, the bathrooms have hairs in the floor. The bed have hairs in the sheets. They tells us that we are not available to take a shower until next day because the water make noises that offend the others guests... do you imagine... The hot breakfast is a joke.. only cold coffee and corn flakes with milk... It is a real nightmare... The hotel smells.... ugggg...
