We liked the history of the hotel and the extreme confort of the hotel, it was a wonderful break feeling like we were in our own bubble for the weekend. We thought the wedding exhibition on in the morning made things a little hectic and the wedding guests in the restuarant also detracted from our relaxed morning.
The bed in the room was of a very high class. It enabled us to sleep soundly for a refreshing start to the following day. Downs Hall is a period hotel with some astounding features. Visitors still require modern bathroom/shower facilities in their rooms. Downs Hall was lacking in this department.
Too far away from anything
Very professional, courteous staff, nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent. The room was clean and comfortable, room service was very good. Wonderful location. There was no lift to our room - but on a positive note the staff were happy to carry our bags up and down the stairs.
Comfortable room and dinner was good There is no lift to the 2nd floor (or certainly not that I was told about or directed to); the stair carpet between floors 1 and 2 is v worn; it was rather warm/stuffy in corridors; there is no quick route to car park, guests must walk out of the front and round the Hall to the back for the car park.
Good location for Stansted and still quiet at night.
The very relaxed atmosphere and the good service Bar prices are over priced even by central London standards where I live
Very nice hotel for some one stay overnight in Stansted Airport area and want to have a sniff of the English Landlord era.A walk through the hotel and garden is already relaxing before having a drink in the comfortable bar. Helpfull staff . Taxi from Stansted 21 gbp
Grounds and building are beautiful, very peaceful. The perfect weekend retreat. Some of the furnishings looked a little worn
The staff is very friendly, the food and accomodation is excellent and the surroundings are beautiful.
Very quirky hotel, loved the kitchen/diner, my husband and 11 year old grandson loved the sportscars, None
Quirky ! Extremely well done! Lack of Digital TV (Free View) and Wireless broadband
We liked everything at the Pit Stop. Good, off street parking. Very good hosts. Excellent accommodation and very good Breakfast food. The Pit Stop deserves to be included in anyone's holiday itinerary. It is more than a B&B and it is of a very high standard. The American DIner is wonderful and don't let the self service breakfast put you off from staying here Melvyn and Sindy have everything you need in their diner to feed hungry guests. Not only do you get to stay in luxury accommodation for a reasonable cost you also get to look around the beautiful cars stored there. The Pit Stop B&B is near enough London and next to Standsted Airport. Car enthusiasts should make sure to stay here and even if you do not have a passion for cars, like my w
Very warm welcome from Melvin, fantastic design in the rooms ans the kitchen. If you go in the vicinity, don't miss it! Be aware the Stansted airport is nearby. If you're looking for the perfect silence, it might be a problem
Melvyn greeted me and spent time showing me around - it is fantastic!. We loved the 'diner' based on Ace Cafe - loved the details, great that we could help ourselves to breakfast - loved the flexibility - the fact we could bring our own food and cook. We loved looking around the cars. We will be back to try out another room and hire a car for the day. It was perfect! There is nothing we didn't like about our stay - we had the place to ourselves (which was perfect) but wondered how it might have worked out if it had been full.
Splendid! Splendid! Splendid! This is the most fascinating place to stay at! If you love beautiful surroundings, comfort, extraordinary attention to detail in everything and fabulous cars then this is the place for you! Would my husband and I stay here again? Like a shot we would! Thank you Pit-Stop! Absolutely no complaints!
The generous size of the room. The theme/decor was fantastic. The justly proud, friendly and casual yet reassuring style of the management was welcoming. The self help, excellent choice and well presented food/style for breakfast was above expectations.The diner, (as well as our room), is stunning.
I had only one night at the Radisson Blu but it was great. Dinner at the Italian restaurant was memorable - unusual, creative dishes. My room was, for me, very spacious and luxurious. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and had a wonderful assortment including fresh fruit salad, which is a rarity indeed. I had time to use the heated swimming pool.and enjoyed it very much. Then a quick but tasty lunch in the bar before departure. All the staff were excellent - friendly and helpful. I especially appreciated a late check out as well as a concierge facility that allowed me to leave a large suitcase both at no additional charge. I didn't mind paying for the excellent facilities and service. Well worth it.
Spacious room and comfortable bed. Walking distance from the airport.
The location, a short walk from the airport terminal. Very convenient. The room, the quiet. The staff was very helpful. The swimming pool closing at 07.30 PM. also, the hotel was a bit pricey.
The minibar was stocked
The room was great. Mattress was super comfortable. Location was also great as we were staying because of a layover. Breakfast buffet was also the best I have ever had. Food prices at restaurant were a little pricey for what was offered. Room smelled a little of smoke. Suggestion: perhaps offer complimentary water bottles in rooms?
Friendly staff, clean room, just next to terminal building (2 min walk), quick check-in and check-out.
the location as it serves the airport very well. The rooms are comfortable and the staff very helpful. The cost of drinks and meals. I with many others leave the hotel and eat and socialise in the airport. If the food and drink bill was less then people would be more likely to stay and eat on the premises. I even know people who avoid the hotel because of the cost
Reasonably sized room. Comfortable bed. Clean with one noteable exception. Airport accessible via covered walkway - 2 or 3 minutes at most. Broken glass on bathroom floor. Food and drinks a little pricey. Compulsory service charge for waiter service in main bar area.
The hotel is new and very clean and has all the necessary facilities for a pleasant stay. There was no family room and so I had to take two rooms with a connecting door for a family of four.
Easy access to the airport... Price.
The hotel's position close to the airport terminal.The comfortable room. One of the eating places ('Paella' or the like) was advertised in the room and in the lifts, but was closed "for the season".
Proximity to airport was very useful and check out as well as car collection service were both good The carpet in room and corridor were not as clean as they could have been. Check-in was very slow!
Pretty good value for the price, the hotel is very clean and quiet, the location for connecting flights is perfect, the transfer to the airport is well-organized. The price for the transfer was quite high
Surprised that they did not offer early morning breakfast pack in the room especailly as they are at an airport. Cheaper hotels do. Also what happened to the travel bag hooks at reception?
bar staff - really caring and giving a chocolate bar to our baby girl whihc was a nice gesture the food served in thehotel restaurant - the dinner - the food was cold and a siz e of portion misearble
nice facilities, room on good condition, staff are very helpful there should be wireless connection available inside the room, so that we dont't have to come down at the lobby for longer period (very cold)
relative close location to STN n.a.
It was convenient The check-in clerk was surly and offhand, and was ignorant. She also vaguely pointed in the wrong direction for the elevator/lift. A later desk clerk who entered my Priority Club number was very helpful.
everything I would like somebody to speak other languages. spanish for exemple
The hotel is very near to Stansted airport. There is a hotel shuttle at the airport. After 13 hours of long flight and reached UK at 8pm, it is very convenient to stay at the nearest hotel as it is only 5 minutes from the airport with comfortable and clean room.
The room was great, very confortable and tidy. Breakfast could've had more variety.
Bed comfortable Room far too warm when i arrived and in order to cool down the airconditioning had to be left on all night and it was noisy therefore could not sleep.
very comfortable, owners friendly and helpful. Family of 5 able to fit in one room which is very rare. Excellent idea for self service buffet breakfast especially when you have early flight. No except hard to find in the dark.
The staff were very welcoming. very clean and beautiful scenery. Felt very relaxed.
Friendly welcome and the rich serve-your-self breakfast
Very comfortable, wonderful landlady, will certainly use again.
The attention to detail was impeccable. A lot of thought had gone into providing the "little things" that make a big difference.
Cleanliness and location Cold water supply seemed to be supplied by outdoor tank, the temprature being subject to whatever the weather at the time, as it was 30c the nice cool shower I was looking forward to after a very hot day was a little disapointing.
Cleanliness of the room
Cleanliness and comfort, Staff attitude. None to speak of
Excellent value for money. Very very quiet. Friendly staff.
Everything from start to finish was excellent No bad points room was great clean and beyond our expectations thanks very much for the great service you provided us
Cleanliness, renovated rooms Far from public transport
The room was perfect for my overnight stay and early morning flight. The foodcourt next door was very very handy. The bus service was fab and the bus driver was lovely.
Good speedy check in, room small but clean and tidy, plenty of tv channels, a good tea and coffee tray provided, close to the airport its quite noisy with lorries etcI am not a fan of eating at the services!
The proximity to Stansted Airport - perfect for my frequent trips between Europe and the UK
the bed was lumpy with springs coming through and uncomfertable
close to the Airport (10min), free parking, cheap, clean & quiet but basic room, fast food & shops next to the hotel.
Excellent place, helpful staff, very tidy and clean. None
Staff was great. Associated pub is very charming.
Very welcoming staff good value for money next to a pub comfortable beds. Very handy to stay coming back from Stanstead on a late flight The puzzling one way road system to find the hotel
Staff great - room basic but very good. Wi-fi, bottles of water and coffee all complimentary. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Would stay again.
It was near town centre room was on main road
convenient parking no
how close it was to h2os nightclub!! was a little bit of road noise in the morning
All you need for an overnight stay Door lock did not work
i am transiting at stansted airport. so looking for something reasonable and clean close to many local restaurants and train station ( one station to stansted airport) the host lady was very friendly. took the trouble to explain to me in detail where the transport are and how things works. good bathroom and clean too close to the road. and if you open the windows someone can climb in
The room was warm which in view of the cold weather was very welcome. The staff were helpful. The only problem we had (although we did not seek assistance) was we could not get the TV to work.
Very friendly atmosphere. Perfect breakfast. Very convenient location.
amicable hosts, very accommodating, feel like you're at home. sweet pet cats in the garden. room was very comfortable. lots of different interesting art.
Nice house, exceptionally welcoming and helpful owners, comfortable bed, good value. Nothing
Beautiful home, warm, friendly welcome. The availabilty of an evening meal on our arrival was a great help. Comfortable beds . Very nice stay.
elegant, very confortable, very kind owners, good breakfast, very easy to reach
Peter and Paulette were great.
Close to Stansted and nearby Cambridge, it's perfect for those who are flying to or from London but who prefer to escape London's busy atmosphere. The couple who runs it are nice and although I would have preferred a bigger English breakfast, they did offer more toast and cereals to fill you up. the pack breakfast they made us on our last day was a bit stingy and we would have liked to have the check in a bit earlier than 3pm.
breakfast and hospitality of the personnel, roof-top windows
very friendly ,typical english guest house,not hotel. no.
Express check in was easy. Room was very clean, loved the extra pillows and helpful sleeping tips. Perfect for short stay. Also loved the shampoo installed in bathroom so I didn't have to unpack my stuff! Bathroom was a little like a hospital but that's also to say it was very clean, not really a problem. Also dialed down to reception and didn't get an answer, at 1am, but note says 24 hour reception.
People are very friendly and nice, the room is warmly decorated and very neat and tidy. The bathroom is nice too, it has a good shower. they only make transfers from the guest house to the stansted airport, but not the other way round, so it costs about 7 pounds to get from stansted airport to there.
Everything was provided - hairdryer, iron etc. Location was peaceful. We arrived late in the evening and it was difficult to see the hotel sign from the road in the dark (we drove past it twice).Could have done with the sign illuminated. Neighbours friendly and directed us.
Very near to Stansted Airport. No aircraft noise and quiet location. Continental breakfast more than adequate. Unfortunately there was a water main burst in close proximatey to The Willows which had the obvious outcome - no water!! (Not the fault of the owners!)
Excellent. The staffs are very friendly and always ready to pick you up from and to the airport which is very close to the Guest House. They also speak very clear and not to fast, easy to understand if you are not English. Very clean, very beautiful and very comfortable.
good location close to airport, nice room, good transfer service to airport
A little sanctuary close to the airport. Attention to detail...
good service, clean room, easy transport to the airport
The people where very nice and helpfull
No WiFi connection.
We used The Willows for overnight accommodation before a flight from Stansted. Despite the proximity to the airport it was very peaceful. The surroundings were beautifully kept with attractive floral displays enhancing the thatched cottage. Transport to and from the airport plus storage of our car were efficient.
Having arrived at Latchmead after a 14-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur, I found it just perfect in terms of both thoughtful reception and the chic room I was given. Situated very close to the airport, Latchmead definitely makes you feed at home, as all your needs are more than taken care of but really, anticipated and attended to at the highest level. Hope you enjoy your experience there as much as I did!
The owners were teriffic. Will stay there again.
We were made to feel welcome from the start, the cleanliness, the facilities , the location and the helpfullness of the owners contributed to a very enjoyable break. We were recommended to try the local pub for our evening meal, this is a must if you stay here, you will not be disappointed, the meals are huge. We would not hesitate to book again when we are next in the area.
Nice rooms in a very quiet location (except from the planes from Stansted airport, but we knew about that). Would be great for hiking, but we just stayed for one night. Very nice pub in 10 min walk. Perhaps a bit long from the nearest city if you stay longer.
It was convenient and the people helped to promptly get me to the airport. Paola and her husband were very kind. P.S.-They have a lovely Labrador dog named Blaze!!
good location, nice rooms, nice place and very friendly hostess
Very convenient for Stanstead Airport yet quiet. Particularly liked the availability of breakfast at any hour of the morning. Didn't understand King Twin. Would have preferred normal queen size bed, but not very important.
Very clean. Felt cozy. Landlady very nice and chatty, very helpful too. Great breakfast! B&B offers a free shuttle service, only TO the airport though. Mattress with springs (and you can feel them) and distance from the Airport (18£ ish by taxi).
Very nice people and very friendly atmosphera. I will always stay there whenever I'm in the neighbourhood. Thanks
It was too far away from the central part of town for lack of transportation.
value for money
Friendly helpful staff, clean bright spacious room, modern annex to a what is obviously a traditional old country pub. Much better than portrayed on the website. I found the website misleading whether breakfast was included as it said it was then stated that you had to pay. The fact was it was included. No
A little expensive for the size and type of room.
Only real negative was the bed quilt - very stained and off putting..
very friendly staff and exelent food. everything was perfect. will be staying again very soon
Cleanliness and atmosphere of pub Water pressure & Showers ineffective. Tired decor
Price was reasonable and beer good Dinner choice was poor and expensive for what you good. The quality of our meals was very poor
Nice deep bath - comfotable bed
Very comfortable bed,& quiet room, with excellent cooked breakfast included in the price. Early breakfast times, 7-8.30am on weekdays.
Very comfortable, very clean, breakfast was excellent cooked to order.Service excellent.
Fantastic Hotel! Brilliant Food, Superb Friendly Staff, Everything was perfect from the moment I arrived, with a warm welcome, My room was Excellent, And right next to a Beautiful Lesiure centre. This is deffinatley My first choice! Great Value for money! Having To Leave :(
I was staying at the Hunters Meet for a friends wedding as the reception was held at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and the food was great. We had a small problem with our room on check in but it was sorted out right away with no bother and the room was well presented and clean. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.
I thought the staff was really excellent and tried to do everything they could to make my stay comfterable
The friendly staff and the location.
Very kind staffs Some parts of the room were not cleaned properly. Shower wasn't working properly. Breakfast served so slowly, and even the food was so poor.
I've never been served such a large Full English Breakfast in my life and it tasted great. Rooms need a little tlc and can be a little noisy.
The Hunters Meet Hotel offered friendly and welcoming staff with good facilities. The four poster room we had was large and well equipped, and the pool area was relaxing.
I really liked the very friendly welcome and customer service. It was a cut above what would normally be expected.
The food was excellent, the staff were very helpul and friendly and the room was very confortable. Loved the pool and gym and overall a very enjoyable stay and will definately be back at some point. Nothing
A Friend of mine recomended this hotel to me, And It was everything I wanted! Really friendly & Helpful, With a superb Gym & swimming Pool. And They even managed to fit me in for a sports massage after hours. This Is my Number 1 choice for the area! Fantastic Hotel!
The location was beautiful, the room was lovely, the bathroom was luxurious, the staff were friendly and noted our comments on departure. Would definitely stay there again. Unfortunately under Stanstead flight path but we knew that. Air con not yet working in newly developed room so room was hot and opening door meant airplane noise was pretty loud, but these things would not prevent us staying there again. Few little improvements needed - no where to hang wet towels but they know this and will change. The 'great' far outweighed the 'development needs'.
We had a fantastic stay, the food was service was 1st class, the room was 1st class, the staff were 1st class, it was more like staying on a cruise liner than a hotel,
Quiet hotel and excellent customer service - very comfortable rooms. There was no internet access/wifii and network coverage was poor for mobile phones.
Staff and food and decor I asked for a quiet room and was not then told hotel was on flight path
Close and easy to get to the airport. Decent modern bedroom which was comfortable. Bar/restaurant was all one which is not condusive to good atmosphere. Drinks very expensive. Room was double booked which was very annoying.
good sized bedrooms clean and comfortable a problem with reception staff, asked to book a taxi to the airport on our arrival and then at 7.15am on the morning, I had to ask when the taxi did not arrive and the rsponse was 'I forgot' this resulted is us being 45 minutes late to meet the group
the rooms were brand new which was lovely and teh resturant was beautiful The hotel is currently being reburbished therefore there are work men around and heavy machinery. Not as quiet as you may like either due to this but due to the price we paid we were happy enough as the rooms were lovely and we were just sating for a wedding that evening away from the hotel . If I had paid full price as per their tarrif I think I would have been a little upset though!
distance to Stanstead airport
Had a nice feel to it, the rooms were comfortable and modern Wooden floors were quite noisy and it is close to Stansted airport. I didn't hear the planes at night but if you are a light sleeper....
Friendly service. Very good food and wine aircraft noise from stansted, hotel was unfinished, prices were on the stiff side.
Functional and perfect location for airport. No issues
Very comfortable, easy to arrange transport to/from airport Front desk staff not very friendly, restaurants on site limited to fast food like KFC.
Only there for very short time - accessability to the airport good.
Good location if you have to fly out of Stansted the following morning, girl on front desk very helpful and pleasent. No eating facilites, ate in the Ramada next door which was very poor, very much a one night necessity stay hotel.
Friendly staff, convenient Very noisy, terrible bed
Very close to Stansted airport. The corridor outside our room had a smell of mould.
location near to airport and easy parking.Room is to Days Inn usual high standard and also had free wifi which is excellent. I was a little confused with directions. There are 2 Days Inn's at the service station
the larghe bathroom!!
Good location - buses from the airport stop there, my room was upgraded to executive, very comfortable. Noise from nearby motorway, but would be expected, no information whether there is an airport shuttle or not, so had to take taxi from the late flight
It was easy to locate
Very Friendly Staff
