Dirty, smelly and horrible a welcome. The smell of smoke and takeaways greets you as you walk in the door and a strange counter which resembles a prison desk gives you a sense of running away while you still can! If I was a girl staying here on my own I would not feel safe as there were people loitering... More

BEWARE: I did wonder why this B & B always has rooms and now I know. The place is absolutely disgusting. We had two rooms whilst at this awful place, the first a double room, No 1, it was quite revolting, the carpet was so old and extremely dirty, I dropped an empty mug next to head of the bed... More

We booked here due to proximity to airport. A 7 am flight. It is certainly close to stansted but that was the only reedeeming feature. I certainly wont return. Tired reception area and a receptionist who was only interested in getting paid. Room was basic and on the surface clean. However on closer inspection blinds were dirty and the bathroom... More

I stayed here for 2 nights due to its proximity to Stansted (10 minutes drive) @ £38 a night B& Continental B. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Whilst the room reminded me of places I stayed when I was a student, it did the job. It was far better than falling asleep on the M11 or getting... More
