    Missing everything.

    No towels in our room, no soap/ shampoo or bath mat. No remote control for the TV. Worst of all, no hot water. The staff were apologetic and dealt with everything but the hot water but there isn’t really an excuse for this. We had breakfast which was very nice. The village is lovely.

    Impressed

    Never know what you're going to get with a room in a pub. Pub is spotless. Room just the same. Friendly staff. Felt like I had equal billing as a hotel guest as those just ordering a beer. Bars can be noisy but I never felt there was a problem on the night I was there. Also it's on the approach to Stansted Airport but I never felt the aircraft noise was particularly disturbing either. I'd particularly recommend this to someone needing a night before or after a flight from/to Stansted. Surely better than a Travelodge!

    Hotel was clean and comfortable. Food in restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. Hotel located in a really nice village location. Would have no problem returning here for business or pleasure.

    Light sleepers beware

    Good rooms however hotel situated next to a church that chimes on the hour every hour and on Stansted flight path so light sleepers beware, otherwise comfortable, well equipped rooms at very reasonable price

    Very Disappointing

    Our party enquired before our visit if it was possbile to check in and leave our bags before check in time as we were attending a wedding at 2pm some distance away and would not be back before midnight. On arrival there was some confusion if this was possible. Your member of staff proved very helpful although he also seems to be responsible for the bar and ordering food as well. He was frantic but polite and cheerful. One other member of staff was in place but did little to help. We were a party of 15 so one wonders why more staff had not been allocated. I was not able to order a simple coffee as the machine was broken and stock had not been delivered. Food was slow to arrive for most in our party so had to be eaten in a rush before our departure. We were allocated a room in the cottage. Outside apperances were not positive, curtains plainly hanging off broken hooks, and pass key locks on the outside doors not working. The room had not been serviced from its previous occupant but we were able to change clothes. When we returned at midnight it took little time to realise that we could hear every movement, cough and event from the room above and presumably them us. After a disturbed night with little or no sleep we were very concious that we would be disturbing others by making tea, showering etc. In the end we just packed up and checked out at 6.30am to return home. Disappointing.

    False information

    It was comfortable but on site parking was advertised. It was not available. You need to change your facilities available. We would not have booked if we had known there was no parking. False statement!!!
