Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. Checking was fast and efficient. There is a nice and relaxed atmosphere about the place. The restaurant catered very well for my dietary restrictions which usually is a struggle. The rooms are well-equipped, very clean and comfortable.
Cons: The website still shows sauna/swimming pool (to which I was greatly looking forward to) and these are no longer available. Also the television picture in our room kept breaking up and there was no engineer available to fix it.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: First impression was so bad and hotel was overbooked, We could not get our rooms.
Cons: Food in the restaurant was okay however management and staff have a lot to improve. The tray with dirty tea pots and cups on the table were there for all the time we were waiting for our room (3h) by the way our room was never given to us on that night even though we had confirmation from the booking.com

7.9 Good
Pros: Good location, nice room, polite staff, value for money
Cons: No food in the evening, shower was dirty with lots of hair all over the basin, window handle missing so couldn’t shut it fully
7.5 Good
Pros: Pretty good value for money
Cons: The bathroom smelled quite strong for a few hours after we arrived. And by 8.50 theres was barely nothing left for breakfast.
6.5 Good
Pros: Nothing special. A bit dirty. Had to have the window open because it was so hot, but when i got there the window was already open. I would consider staying again.
6.0 Good
Pros: The room was amazing, comfortable bed, private bathroom. The cleaning lady was really nice and helped me a lot after I had tried to call the number on the desk for help only to get a rude guy on the phone refusing to help me with basic information. The location was very good with good transport right outside.
Cons: Walls are paper thin so it was very noisy when someone else was arriving in the next room. If you call the phone number on the desk for help or information, you get a very rude guy who hates his job and hates you for calling him. He will not help you and will be very rude, shaming you for calling him for basic information. That experience is the reason why I gave the the place a grade 6 instead of a 9.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great, cheap and located near the airport !
5.0 Okay
Cons: Clean not stained or damp towels would have been a help
7.0 Good
Pros: Room was functional, perfect for just overnight before early flight. Didn’t eat there. Kettle etc in room but no coffee, so obvs not been replenished. bare bulb with no shade from ceiling light was a little poor, an easy cheap fix that would be far more welcoming. £50 for large double room, about ten mins drive from airport.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: A really nice hotel for the price! Rooms are very cute and clean, feels more like a little holiday cottage than somewhere near a busy airport! Perfect for staying at before a flight from stansted. The village of Takely is also cute.
Cons: When booking just be aware that it isn't walking distance to the airport- you will have to get a bus or taxi. However the price is a steal and with a taxi is still cheaper than some closer to the airport
1.0 Poor
Pros: location near to airport However, Taxi charge £18 (fixed) if you want to go inside the airport (at dep[artyre gate)
Cons: No Iron even on request No Tissue papers Blockage of water during the shower
4.0 Okay
Pros: Unfortunately this hotel needs to improve a lot. I spent a bad night sleeping because i could hear all the noises from the other rooms, the service is very bad, and the conditions are not the best, the shower water is not hot and the food in the restaurant is average. Fortunately was only a couple of hours otherwise it doesn't worth.
Cons: Kitchen chef is the most friendly person in this hotel
2.8 Mediocre
Pros: The hotel is located close to Stansted airport BUT...
Cons: DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL or DeSalis. I have given fair (good) reviews to most of the hotels where I have stayed in the past. My reviews can be seen in Agoda, Booking, Kayak and I am a Platinum member with Marriott hotels. What did I not like about this hotel? I encountered the rudest and most disrespectful staff I've ever dealt with. As soon as I walked in the guy at the front desk yelled at my girlfriend and I for leaving the car parked (momentarily) in the only area available (we did this to confirm that we had a room before unloading our suitcases) If you're driving, bear in mind that the hotel has two decent parking spots, otherwise you'll end up leaving your car in the back of the building which seems dark and unsafe. The guy then said that he didn't see our reservation and sent us to a DIFFERENT HOTEL without even apologizing for the ordeal. The new hotel was called DeSalis and it was OK at first sight but we were given a nasty and old room in the back of the building. The room smelled like and old and humid warehouse. The bed was uncomfortable and you had to hold the shower with one hand as it wasn't attached to the wall. Further, we were told the restaurant closed at 11pm but we showed up at 10.35pm and they said that the kitchen was closed. Bear in mind that the closest restaurant is 15 minutes away from DeSalis. Outcome? We ate chips and drank cheap wine at 11.30pm in our nasty and uncomfortable room after driving 4 hours from Manchester. Overall, this was the worst experience I've ever had not with one but two hotels. I am sure other people have enjoyed their stays but I hope you guys keep in mind my comments if you want to avoid being THAT couple that doesn't their last night in such a lovely country! I want to leave on a good note so I will once again mention that both hotels are less than 8 minutes away from the aiport.

6.7 Good
Pros: Fantastic location for Stansted Airport. The parking included with our stay also covered us for our holiday. Room was a good size.
Cons: On arrival check in was unwelcoming almost as if we were an inconvenience to her phone call, so it took some time for us to get checked in. Also tried to double charge us. I happened to drop my phone down the top of the bed so had to go under to find it where there was an empty condom wrapper, but other than this the room was clean!

8.0 Excellent
Pros: great location from Airport
Cons: niothing
4.6 Okay
Pros: The heater was adequate.
Cons: The base to the bed was broken on one side. The bed linen was unaired and damp. The host could use an electric blanket on a low heat to air the beds and remove it before the guest arrives. There were no local shops and the nearest pub was down an unlit lane with no pavements. You need your own transport if you are staying here. The first flight into (from?) Stansted was at 04.50 and about every ten minutes after 06.30. No chance of a lie in, even if you wanted one!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfy and warm
Cons: Couple more teabags
5.0 Okay
Pros: location convenient for the airport
Cons: It was a converted chalet. Heating was not adequate. As it's a chalet you do lose heat opening the door to the outside, but the heating wasn't enough to warm the room, and the buttons on the heater had been removed, and screws put in to prevent adding more heat! There were two extra blankets provided to compensate but not warm enough to get out the shower. Bedding (pillows) had seen better days, and there were no extra pillows provided - just a cushion. The toilet seat was not a proper fit for the toilet, and shifted about. I think a better quality seat might have been better. The kettle was very small, not in itself a problem, but only one tea bag and one coffee sachet provided which was unneccesarily stingy. The television was the smallest most basic, and as it was high up on the wall, and watching it from the bed the angle made the picture less visible. I think with a bit more money spent on the quality of what's provided it would be so much better, but the impression was they had spent as little as possible to provide the minimum. A shame because it's really close to the airport.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: We were disappointed as room was very small and not in my building, it was a chalet room in back yard .. won't recommend sorry

Pros: The decor was charming and the room itself was quirky, with beams. The location was great for getting to the airport and was in a lovely rural area. There was plenty of choice for breakfast. The late check in time was very welcome and the parking was good...
Cons: The front door didn't close properly so was inadvertently left open all night. The shower room door didn't shut or lock! The room couldn't have been cleaned thoroughly as we found a previous occupant's item of make up under a mirror, the floor was a tad dusty and there was a cobweb above the bed. Being on the flight path for Stansted Airport we expected some plane noise, but it was incredibly loud ..

9.0 Excellent

1.0 Poor
Cons: The room was full of woodlice and ants
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodation in a sense of its cleanliness and comfort. That might be down that this place was recently refurbished.
Cons: that is not nothing to do with accommodation itself, it is my remark about the state of pavements from the airport to the place
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and comfortable; convenient for airport, and for setting off onto Motorway network.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The guest house is near the airport. I walked there from the railway station. The host is very helpful. As well as explaining how things worked (e.g. the heating), he showed me a good walk around the village, to the village church and around. I felt I was in the countryside. The rooms are brand new. The bed is very clean and comfortable. The heating superb. The host ordered a taxi for the morning flight
Cons: Nothing not to like.

Cons: At night spotting the unlit unmade access track off the main road was challenging, needing some luck.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was a home from home
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Proximity to airport.
Cons: Does not include airport parking and is very misleading as it shows up on Google (see photos) as the hotel with the same name that does offer it. States free parking with no reservation necessary but unfortunately the host attempted to charge our card, unauthorised, an additional £20 for a service they claim they do not offer... This was declined and if further attempts are made, the bank has been instructed to report it as fraud... We could not contact host on check in or check out to clarify any misinformation but host acknowledged by text that others are confusing their accommodation for the Ash Barn Annex with parking at the same cost after we were out of the country. Shame, this could have been a good review if it wasn’t for the greed of some to charge for an honest misunderstanding which she even acknowledged!
