I stayed for the one night and found the room to be faultless and the bar lively and the staff responsive. The next morning we have a lovely breakfast with prompt service, A big thanks to Chris and the Team for great stay.

I spent two days here in November/December 2018 as part of a wedding party. I found the staff to be friendly and welcoming and they responded readily to any questions or issues. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the food was superb. Recommended!

I think the easiest way is to get a bus/taxi to Stansted Airport - it's about 12 miles away. The Stansted Express train runs frequently to London, but it is a little expensive. Have fun!
