Pre-flight stay in the pussy willow. The twin room was lovely and spacious with comfortable beds. We had asked for transfers to/from the airport which was included in the price. We found out on arrival that out landing time back into the country was too late to be collected so we had to make our own was back. It would... More

. Brian the owner is very attentive and made us feel very welcome he even drove us for a small fee to our venue, where we were attending a Wedding. Really clean rooms and a lovely power shower. The breakfast was also very tasty. Highly recommended.

Stayed one night as flying from Stansted. Brian and his wife were great hosts and warm welcome. Rooms well presented, clean and comfortable. Great breakfast. Best of all,we could leave our car whilst we away. Brian drove us to airport and picked us up. Where else do you get top class service as this. One night's stay and three days... More

We booked two rooms at The Pussy Willow for one night prior to a flight to Cyprus from Stansted and took the option to park our cars there for the week. Brian dropped and picked us up from the airport without any hiccups. It was great value, when we were offered the option of an evening meal we declined as... More

Very disappointing following the previous reviews. Customer service was appalling- when ordering porridge and eggs, the owner seemed overwhelmed with any order and even ordering an extra egg was impossible. The other guests seemed very unimpressed with the quality of their cooked breakfast too. My bathroom was in a state of repair and extraordinarily my bath towels were thin, white... More

Brian the proprietor took us in our car when we arrived to Stansted and dropped us directly outside the terminal which was very helpful. We stayed the night on our return from our holiday in Kos. Brian was waiting for us when we arrived after midnight and showed us around and to our room. Our room, especially the bed (super... More

We stayed overnight at this lovely B&B just recently whilst attending a joint 40th & 70th Birthday party nearby. It was a last-minute thought to have a night away and having found the B&B online I did not expect to be lucky enough to find availability. However, nothing ventured and nothing gained. Brian responded promptly and confirmed availability of a... More

A B&B in a good position for flights to and from Stansted. We booked two rooms for two adults each; our arrival times were rather late on both evenings we were resident due to spending time with friends and family, which was accommodated. Bring your slippers as you are asked to remove shoes. We were able to choose our breakfast... More

My third visit to Pussy Willow was just after a really bad storm had knocked out all the power in the Takeley area, and the place was plunged into darkness. However, despite the fact that most other B & Bs had closed their doors to guests, even pre-booked ones, Brian and Kaew stayed open! So although this time there was... More

I have no complaints whatsoever. After reading some of the negative reviews on here; I can't help but think that some people set their expectations too high; so ignore them! I booked this B&B for a group of 10 of us in April this year. I did faff and awful lot, so I have to thank Brian for putting up... More
