Went to Italy to spend Christmas with the family but before we spent a night here before flying out from Stansted.

My husband and I stayed at Harwood House overnight in October 2016 before an early flight from Stansted. Although our booking was made at last minute we couldn't have been made any more welcome. Our room was lovely and very clean. The day was quite chilly so it was lovely to feel the warmth from the radiator. The hotel is...

Stayed overnight before an early flight from Stansted, and arrived to a warm welcome yet again and assistance with cases to our superb deluxe ensuite room after a smooth check in and own choice of transfer the following morning. This is our third stay at this delightful b&b, and great to go away and know our car is left in...

B&B was nice. Hotel room was clean but no toiletries. Owners were on holiday and there was a couple looking after it for them that weren't very welcoming. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on that. Convenient location.

We booked two rooms here months before our stay as we had been invited to a wedding at Maiden's Barn in High Easter. We loved the video on the website and this sold it to us immediately. Harwood House is easy to find with ample parking and the friendly and efficient welcome boded well for a happy stay. The rooms...

We chose this establishment with care as it was to be our base over the week of our daughter's wedding. We booked all the rooms for the wedding night and most for the night before and we weren't disappointed. From the initial booking over a year ago, with the idiosyncratic arrangements needed, Helen couldn't have been more helpful! During the...

This was the first time we have not stayed on an airport site for an early flight. The hotel is a few miles from Stansted and the promise was to provide car parking and drop off and pick up to suit you and your flights rather than waiting for a mini bus full at a preset time as is so...
