What an arrogant host, rude and opinionated in a very unpleasant manner. The house is lovely although the sheets were with small holes. My impression was that the superior accent and pseudo intellectual manner is all fake. Very irritating start to a trip, not for me!

Stansted airport has become a depressing airport to fly from but the Pussy Willow B+B goes a long way in making this experience a lot nicer. The host (I only met Brian) was an old-school delight and could not have been more helpful. I look forward to trying the Thai food next time.

The pussy Willow guest house is an absolute gem, accommodation is 5 star with the food (Thai) sublime. This was an excellent choice of stay prior to our flight departure. The owner was most obliging and indeed took us to Stansted Airport for our outgoing flight and collected us from the airport on our return. The Pussy Willow, They don't...

It is good value for money when you compare it with car park charges and...

We stayed in this B&B for one night as we had an early flight from Stansted back home the next day. We booked a family room (2 adults and 2 children). Three beds and one mattress on the ground; for one night this is not a big problem. The room and en suite bathroom was clean and had everything it...

I had an excellent time here. Its quaint, characteristically British. Styled in old fashioned laid-back charm it was quite an experience. A definite must do if anyone is in Essex. The kitchen is excellent with a lot of variety to choose from.
