I had an excellent time here. Its quaint, characteristically British. Styled in old fashioned laid-back charm it was quite an experience. A definite must do if anyone is in Essex. The kitchen is excellent with a lot of variety to choose from.

This place is clean and efficient. The proprietor is clean and efficient. The place has white everything so Iwould be nervous about staying with a child but they are most accommodating allowing us four girls in one room and a packed breakfast for early flight. I have stayed here several times now and will continue to do so when flying... More

We stayed at the Pussy Willow when flying out of Stansted for a weekend trip. I had previously read the review's and been recommended by a friend who had stopped before. so I had a fair idea what to expect. When booking I did explain that we didnt want to use our car for the airport run, and Brian was... More

Brian is probably one of the rudest people we have ever come across and shouldn't be in this sort of business. He is arrogant and patronising. On arrival we were asked for payment and then asked for our flight times which had previously been given, we had an early flight which meant leaving the B&B at 4.30am - Brian then... More

Wonderful pre-ordered evening meal, large bedroom and good shower. Going to the airport and being collected on return was very simple and hassle free but be prepared to drive your own car. Overall an excellent place to stay and leave your car whilst travelling from Stansted Airport.

I stayed here with three friends overnight before travelling to Austria. Very comfortable and friendly. The airport pick up and drop off very well organised. You will need £2.50 for the car to exit Stansted airport at drop off and the same for pick up. It was too early for breakfast when we left so we were made a packed... More

We stayed at the Pussy Willow as none of the "hotel + parking" deals appear to offer before and after parking for early departure & late returns. The whole process was a delight! very efficient, if particular, organization by our host Brian for our early morning departure (our car, driven back by Brian) and post-midnight return (by taxi). The first... More

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
