“Great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Excellent overnight stay (including car parking for 12 nights) before flying out from Stanstead. Unfortunately, we left too early for breakfast, but the bed was comfy, nice big room and very good service to and from the airport. Would highly recommend Harwood to anyone looking for airport parking and overnight stay.

Staying at Harwood Guest House is an extremely pleasant and relaxing experience. We know that Ian and Helen always ensure that our stay with them is well organised and that our transport to and from Stansted Airport runs smoothly. We like to stay at Harwood because of the warm welcome and Ian's excellent breakfast which helps to keep us going until we have reached our destination. We also know that our vehicle is well looked after whilst we are away which is very important to us. We have no hesitation in recommending Harwood Guest House to those who have not been and look forward to staying there many more times in the future.

We were guests at this beautiful property 22 to 29 August. It's all perfect. The welcome is friendly and very polite. After a while you feel at home. Ian is a quiet person, always smiling, helpful, , very kind. The rooms are spacious, bright, clean. The breakfast is great. We'll have to come back often to Great Dunmow and we hope to always find a free room at the home of Ian and Helen

This is our second year after going to V Festival and they were actually full this time but Ian and Helen gave us their house this time and we can't thank them enough. They go out of their way for you and the breakfasts are amazing!!! Not to mention that they tolerate us at the end of a night after V festival. These guys are the best hosts EVER!!

Room Tip: If you want to go to V festival and don't want to camp then you should go and stay with these gu...

Just back from a 2 night stay at this lovely guest house and wanted to write a review straight away. As soon as we walked in we were made to feel so welcome by Helen & Ian. Our room was lovely, big & very clean. They were so busy while we were there but it didn't stop them making everything very personal. They knew every single guest and remembered exactly what they liked for breakfast. The breakfast was gorgeous and the dining room also very homely. We cannot recommend this place highly enough and would not hesitate to return in the future. Thank you so much Helen & Ian, you made it so much more than a couple of nights in a b&b. Paul & Kerry.

Stayed here in July as it was so close to the airport for our early morning plane to Italy. We took advantage of their parking and transfers to the airport. Room was clean and spacious, lovely en suite bathroom. Owners couldn't do enough to help us, both before our stay and during. Would highly recommend

We stayed here before our early flight to Denmark. After driving down from Yorkshire and arriving pretty late, we were met with our key and booked in to our comfortable room, with everything that we needed. We sampled the beer across the road - excellent pub for a drink (didn't sample the curry but the menu looked v nice).
Our transfers to and from the airport were seamless - Ian took us and then organised a pre paid taxi back as he was called away. We were met back at Harwood with our car key and we were away! We would recommend this hotel to anyone - the owners will look after you very well and are concerned with your well being - Ian rang us to check everything ran smoothly on our return journey. Much more than you would get from a chain hotel - excellent! :-)

Room Tip: We had the blue room, very comfortable bed and nice view of the garden!
