You couldn't get a more central location for the town, smallish rooms but more than adequate, comfy and cosy. And bear in mind the age of the proporties they are bound to be small and quirky. The beds are very comfy, lots of continous hot water, all perfect for our three day visit and we'll defo use the Lancaster on... More

This is my second time at this quaint guest house. The owners, Dave and his mother, are both a delight and make you feel so welcomed. Shampoo, conditioner, body cream, cotton discs, ear swabs all available. Breakfast daily replenished (tea, coffee, cereals, etc). Most importantly it is a very clean place in the centre of town. Only slight drawback is... More

Hey, it's quirky but my room was cosy and comfortable and good value. Great location right in the centre of things. Very pleased with the attention to detail. Plenty of tea, coffee, good shower gels, shampoos etc. right down to QTips and cotton pads. Very thoughtful. Fine for a one or two night business trip on my own.

Well, this is what happens when we ignore bad reviews on Trip Advisor and book anyway! Stayed here because we are pretty easy to please and it was for only for a flying visit. But there was just SO much wrong with this place. Firstly, it is NOT a guest house. A guest house is when somebody lets out rooms... More

I stayed at the Lancaster Guest House for 1 night on a business trip. It was very difficult to find the entrance to the B & B as it was around the corner from the tea shop in the photo above next to a dark car park. I had to phone the owner as nobody was in when I tried... More

We decided to stay in bishops stortford as it was cheaper than getting a taxi home. Checked in to the lancaster, the room was large clean and tidy you couldn't ask for much more than that. Great location in the centre to bishops stortford. The only downside is no cooked breakfast as I would have given it 5 stars. Maybe... More

Lancasters Guest House is very basic and lacking amenities. The rooms were small and up steep narrow stairs. on a scale of 1 to 5 I would give them a 2. The town of Bishops Stortford is very quaint with some nice pubs and restaurants.

Ignore all the 2011/early 2012 reviews for the Lancaster's Guest House; it's not at all how they suggest now. My partner and i spent 2 lovely nights here in the middle of Feb half term and certainly hope to go back. Our clean comfy nicely decorated room had everything we needed, a fully stocked fridge, tea coffee and hot chocolate... More
