Avoid like the Plague!!!
Thought it would make an easy pit stop after arriving in to Stansted at 23:30 Had booked through and paid in advance When I arrived back I was advised that the room had not been paid Being late and tired - I paid for the room and breakfast. Ok the room was basic - it was clean Breakfast on the other hand was laid out on a counter - Not sure how long the bread had been there for..... There was a selection of meat and cheeses again not sure how long they had been there for...... It has taken me god know how much time to get a refund. Needles to say I will not be going back there

The location is convenient, however when I checked in the receptionist had to check whether I had paid for my accommodation, although my status on her booking system confirmed my payment. Transport to the lodge offers shuffle service but i arrived close to midnight so no service was available. On my return back to the airport I was offered a taxi service they use and is listed at reception. Although I asked to go to the airport there was confusion at the drop point. They must specify clearly that there are two drop of point and an increase in price to be taken directly to the airport.

We booked this hotel pre an early morning flight from Stansted because it advertised a shuttle service. We were told that the shuttle didn’t operate in the early morning and so we paid £20 for a taxi. Also, that breakfast ( as advertised) wasn’t available until 6am). False advertising.

4/10 Fair

I’m pretty sure they don’t do laundry after every guest. At first it looked so cute I didn’t know what all the reviews were complaining about. Then I grabbed my neatly rolled up towel off my bed to go shower and it was already really wet, like it had just been used. The other one was similarly wet, and both were covered in what looked like curly chest hairs and long head hairs. I asked for a new towel and it was hair-free but also suspiciously damp. Then when I pulled back the bed covers there were crumbs and dirt in the sheets! When I went down to reception again there was no one there. That seems to be a thing. It’s too bad, because the place is really cute, but it doesn’t seem like the people running the place care too much.
