“Stansted Stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Looking at the other reviews, I have really tried hard to find a small criticism to balance all the superlatives. I failed. The accommodation, the breakfast but, most of all, the friendly attention are unsurpassed. By the way, it's excellent value as well.

Room Tip: Be guided by Ian and Helen

We stayed overnight before our flight from Stansted. The room was absolutley superb, our hosts Ian and Helen simply marvellous. The hotel is a great credit to both of them. Would definately stay again and highly recommend to all. What a great start to our holiday, we arrived rested and refreshed ready for our flight! The pub/restaurant across the road was warm and friendly and served delicious Indian food.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Pink Room which was of a high standard and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

After an unscheduled delay at Stanstead due to a little snow we needed a place to stay. Ian picked us up at the airport and brought us to their lovely B & B. With a pub and Indian restaurant across the street our needs for food and entertainment were met. Our room was nice and the beds were comfy and Ian got up at the early hours to take us to the airport. We would definatly stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights before jetting off from Stansted Airport for a weeks holidays .
The room was very spacious and comfortable with refreshments and nice soaps in the ensuite.
Ian is very helpful and organised . We did a day trip to London and Ian was very helpful with looking up bus schedules for us . Breakfast was promptly served at the appointed time and
was served in a nice dining room with a grand view of the garden .
We set off for the airport very early the following day , and Ian drove us to the airport at an ungodly hour , and presented us with a lovely packed breakfast - couldn't ask for better really .
After our holiday , we made a smooth rendez vous with Ian , following his very clear instructions regarding meeting points .
We really enjoyed our stay and will be back soon .
