Bucks House Bed & Breakfast
A TripAdvisor Member
Reviewed August 22, 2004

Bucks House is a lovely B&B about 20 minutes from Stansted Airport. The rooms are well furnished and equipped, however, the service we received from the owners totally negated anything positive about the place. The "welcome" we (two couples) received was cold, even hostile and they seemed reluctant to answer any questions we had about the area. We were made to feel as if we were intruders instead of guests. It is safe to say we won't be returning.

Management response:Responded March 19, 2005

Although this review was posted almost two years ago, I have only recently seen it. I am sorry these guests did not enjoy their stay at Bucks House. We always do our best to welcome all our guests, and to ensure we give them as much attention as possible. However, some guests might be better suited to an hotel where there will be a concierge service, at the consequently much higher price, to meet their demands. We pride ourselves on our care of guests and on our beautiful rooms. Our guest book testifies to this. I will ensure that future guests have the chance to submit the positive reviews that we have in our guest book for all to see and can also be read on (commercial URL) You will not find a better B & B within the Stansted Airport area, of that we are certain.
