Booked a very good rate to stay overnight before an early morning flight, so obviously dined in the restaurant. The last time we ate here it was a very traditional old English pub, however, we were seated in some clinical extension lacking atmosphere and character. The fire was just about going out when we arrived at 4, and expecting it... More

We booked the Cricketers Arms at the last minute as we were visiting the area. Excellent rates offered. We were given a nice room but they had forgotten the extra bed for my daughter. They moved us immediately and the room offered had a sofa bed in it. It didn't leave a lot of room when it was out. Room... More

we stayed here overnight with 2 other couples. There are a number of rooms to stay in, only a few in the house the rest are in little bungalows. I can only assume the poor reviews are from those staying in the house. The little bungalows had a very large bedroom with king size bed. Sofa and dressing table. Our... More

Have staid here before around 4 years ago but my recent visit has highlighted why I will not be making a return. The shower was covered in mildew and very small. The toilet was also squeezed into a very tiny space and was blocked ! To finish my visit when ordering breakfast was told that my request for 3 pieces... More

Another successful stay at the Cricketers - our employees are always very very happy to return to this venue - they are very impressed with the accommodation, it is clean & tidy, the food is very good and service from the hotel staff is excellant. Thank you again to all at the Cricketers for your hospitality.

Went for New Eve and stayed over. The food was very good and rooms were also good. The staff were amazing and very helpfull. The breakfast could have been a bit better but as it was New Year day I guess one can make allowances.

Room was nice and clean. It was good value on the dinner bed and Breakfast package. Dinner was alright, with an excellent starter and dessert but quite bland main. I wouldn't have paid the full menu price for it.Breakfast was ok but service let this place down by unsmiling owner who made us feel quite unwelcome. We probably won't be... More

This hotel is a good location approx. 8 miles from Stansted Airport. Rooms are more than ok for the price. The pub is pleasant with a friendly service. It´s a really good place - at least for a stopover before flying from or after arriving at Stansted.
