Reasonable Room - terrible shower!
I was pleasantly surprised by the size and modern feel of the room, despite the fairly lack lustre check in from the person on the 'reception' (desk in the hall).
However, the whole experience was ruined by the bathroom situation.
We had no hot water when we arrived (at 10pm), which was a disappointment but not the end of the world. Although trying to shower did seem to set off some sort of alarm on the ancient looking system outside the bedroom door, which raised other guests but no one from the B & B to help or explain what was happening. In the end we just had to assume it was fine and ignore it for 10 minutes before it stopped.
We decided to have showers in the morning instead as presumably there would be hot water by then, only to discover that actually the shower was broken. Water ran down the back of the wall rather than out of the shower head, into the shower box mounted there - which can't be safe. Needless to say, neither of us were willing to brave that - and even if we wanted to, we couldn't get any of the water in the right direction anyway. Really, all I ask for in a pre-flight hotel booking is a clean, quiet room with a working shower and hot water. I don't think that's unreasonable. £57 was a great price for this B & B, but I think in future I'll just pay the extra and stay in a proper hotel with decent facilities.
Such a shame, as this could have been a little gem for future holiday planning - it really wouldn't have taken much to fix.
Close to Stansted.
Tea/coffee making facilities. Price VG. Breakfast not included. (£39). Told taxi was £4.50 but turned out to be £9.50. Return pick up fine, no charge. Had difficulty getting car out. Suggest park in direction to drive forward, but another car was blocking my entrance.
Suggest look on Google Earth road view to locate. Drove up and down in dark. Phoned up in the end. Post code only helped a bit.
