“"THE" B&B IN GREAT DUNMOW”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

The previous reviews say it all really, Ian is the "man", all aspects of our stay and airport shuttle were excellent, we awarded Harwood Guest House 9 out of 10 because there is always room for improvement however we could not think of any!!

I stayed for 5 nights whilst on a training course, good rooms with nice en-suites. Breakfast was the best i have had for a long time. Ian was very helpful to me and shuttled me to and from my course everyday and then also to the airport when it came to the end of my stay. If i was back in the area again sometime it would be my first call when it comes to looking for somewhere to stay.

I stayed at the Harwood House during a step back in time to my previous life in Great Dunmow, only to find that my previous home is now the main city car park. Harwood House (really a B&B) is small, quiet, old-time comfortable and has a great location to the town (pleasant walk int the always 72F temperature covered with blue skies) and to Stansted Airport. GREAT Indian restaurant and pub across the street. HH Owner lives next door and is super with attention to make sure all needs are met. Example -- He provided local transport for me on several locations. Special English breakfast made to order and an unending supply of good coffee and conversation.

Room Tip: Talk to the owner and tell him what you want

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.
