Stayed here for 4 nights with family to attend a wedding nearby. Friendly staff, rooms comfortable, food lovely. The hotel bar has a welcoming atmosphere. The hotel is located in an interesting, quaint little town. Hotel has a carpark and is very close to Stansted Airport.

We arrived in the middle of a charity night. But were made to feel welcomed and wanted. We were shown to our room in a converted building at the back of the pub. It was big and tastefully furnished. It was however cold and even though we were equipped with a plug in radiator it did 'spoil' the overall effect... More

Myself and three colleagues stayed here for one evening. From the moment we arrived we had ample parking spaces and a good reception. My female colleage and I were upgraded to the suites because we were females staying in the rooms alone. I was, quite literally, blown away by how impressive the suites were. A huge bed, a separate lounge... More

Stayed for one night with husbands family for a special occasion. We booked 5 rooms (3 doubles and 2 singles). All were a good size and the beds were large and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and the food was very nice with excellent service. Breakfast the next morning was also very good. The pub is over 500 years... More

If you need a place to stay in this area - then look no further. Beautiful pub, beautiful room, great breakfast and very accommodating and friendly staff. I would almost call this place "boutique" I would definitely stay here again

Breakfast in the morning was great and the service in particular from one young man was very... More

Stayed here two nights - to/from Stansted flights Good location for the airport. Staff were very friendly & welcoming. Room & bed (both times) were very comfortable. Breakfast was good with a fair selection.

Don't stay here. Save yourself the hassle of dealing with a Manager who truly doesn't give a damn. Go down the road to Fulton Chop House who have beautiful accommodation and lovely staff. Don't use Booking.com to secure your booking either. You can only cancel two days before you arrive which is ridiculous when offered inadequate shabby bathrooms with no... More

In an area dominated by Greene King, how pleasant to find somewhere warm and comfortable serving alternative local beers. I had 'Arise', sadly I did not note the name of the brewer. The food looked good but we had already eaten a huge breakfast at Rayne Booking Hall (see separate review) but anyway a lovely bar with good service to... More

The meal in the evening was exceptional, my compliments to the chef, we had beef wellington, I can honestly... More
