The bed in the room is wonderful, and so is everything else. The staff made it extremely easy for me to check in even when I got there a bit early, and after having a problem with my credit card, they solved everything immediately. Also, the location is just great. Right in the center of Bishop's Stortford, you're just a few steps away from coffee shops, pubs, etc.
The only thing I can complain about is the club that's a block away. I was there on a Wednesday night, and the music was quite loud. I could sleep well nevertheless, so I wouldn't say it's terrible. Just a bit annoying if you're the kind of person that requires silence to sleep.
Great selection for continental breakfast
My room has the only one with the toilet outside but it was only for my use so it was not a big problem
Very clean room, very friendly owner! This was perfect for a night away and the room was lovely.
Pleasant atmosphere. Friendly welcome and then left on my own as preferred. Easy walk to restaurants, etc.
I would imagine that parking can be difficult although it was okay for me. It is also a lit difficult to notice the door at the side of the building so a better sign or instructions (on booking.com) would be beneficial.
- Free Parking - Very Clean with great decor - Breakfast is available in your room as and when you wish to have it (and a great selection too) - great value for money
- The lighting was a little dim
-excellent wifi -clean room and facilities
-the beds were not comfortable enough -toilet is separated with the bedroom -the breakfast could be better, too simple
Great location. A short walk to everything. Quaint rooms with every comfort and very private. Can highly recommend.
You have to phone when you arrive but 30 minutes later owners came and were very friendly
I loved the approach to continental breakfast, which left a refrigerator full with orange juice, water, milk, yoghurt and cheese and a table with a selection of cereals, crackers and fruit
Central location, with parking. Comfy, newly decorated, very warm room for winter time. Continital breakfast, with fridge suplied, was varied and plentiful.
The mattress was extremely comfy
Staff, although polite and efficient, were often nowhere to be found.
Central location. Nice room. Welcoming.
Sympathetically refurbished keeping the original beams etc. Very comfortable feel to the establishment.
Good voule for money
very central location, good for pubs, bars & restaurants. 15 mins from Stansted airport Host friendly
apparently my colleague had a room that was draughty, mine was excellent though
Central area in town, staff very helpful and friendly
Welcome was friendly, efficient but not too familiar. Room was perfect shabby chic, immaculately clean, good standard linen and everything worked. Breakfast laid out and in fridge was great idea..and delicious. Thank you
Good location, very comfortable beds, nice rooms. Just perfect
Right in the middle of Bishops Stortford; well stocked courtesy tray; nice toiletries (including hair conditioner which you don't always see!); a lovely old room...
If you like noise on a Saturday night, then it's great - if you don't like noise then beware if you want an early night; leave your heavy suitcase at Stansted as it's quite a walk from the station and there are narrow steps; difficult to find; there are cream crackers for breakfast (in the room) but no bread...
We were met by David, the landlord, who couldn't have been more helpful - his mother even did our laundry for us! The room was delightful, & spotless clean. A perfect base for exploring the town. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
It felt like staying at someone's home.
Location. Quaint room. Excellent comfortable bed
Bed very comfortable. En suite spotless and had lovely extras like shower gels and shampoos. Beautiful décor. Lovely furniture and furnishings. Breakfast carefully thought out and lots of choice.
Scary bust of a God in the fireplace. Freaked me out a bit! Quite noisy at pub closing time.
We were welcomed by the owner's Mother who was delightful. The twin room we had was very clean We loved the old beams and decor. There were plenty of items for breakfast if we chose to eat in our room or there is a cafeteria adjoining if a cooked breakfast is preferred. Easy distance from shops and river walks.
There was nothing to dislike. There was a window pane which needed attention but that was all.
Location in the centre of the city close to restaurants shops e.thing at a walking distance
breakfast in bedroom
noise from stansted airport : no rug or carpet on the floor made; breakfast was in the room with no bread or butter just cerel, juice, yogurt. the room was not finished.
