In fairness the actual room we stayed in way fine, very comfortable bed, decent bath/shower. Quiet. The issues I have are really with the proprietor Brian. Further to previous reviews I have to add my thoughts; I honestly don't think Brian enjoys being a B and B proprietor. He has some very strange ideas, I hate taking off my shoes... More

I booked to stay here for one night before our Italian holiday and was impressed by the good reviews - sadly I had to cancel and Brian said that he would be able to refund my deposit if he was able to relet the room. Some people in business would keep the deposit regardless and bless him Brian re contacted... More

So, we'd been looking into what to do with our car for a few days while we went to Munich and kept stopping ourselves from booking into one of the many hotels suggested on Booking.com, as it felt like a lot of money to pay for the short time we'd be there. Thank goodness we waited!! After a bit more... More

We stayed at Pussy Willow Before flying from Stansted the next day. Brian could not do enough for us, we arrived late as we were traveling from Manchester, But Brian was waiting to show us around and get us settled in. The places is clean and spacious and really comfortable. After a wonderful breakfast cooked by Brian he took us... More

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
