One of only a few hotel pubs near here. Closed down to make room for flats Like many pubs around the country, yet another one closes. Cheap booze available everywhere now, killing the trade. Try in town if you want a pint, some nice pubs have survived.

As it was the 10th or so hotel, in the area, we had tried to find availability at, we didn't expect much but we were pleasantly surprised .. Our expectations were definitely exceeded! Only small issue we found was the miss communication somewhere along the...

My wife and I stayed recently two nights at the Railway Hotel, we found it a lovely place. From the moment we arrived staff displayed a high level of customer service. They were extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable. It is an excellent location for day trips to London at railway next doors and for...

Close to Sawbridgeworth Station. The staff look after you well - exceedingly comfortable in an area where hotels tend to be impersonal. Ground floor rooms are best for access. Breakfast is hearty - the bacon fantastic

Reasonable priced hotel, we had a large ground floor room at the back. Bed was comfortable and clean, room warm and water hot. Just what we required. We didn't eat breakfast as stayed due to 2parties in sawbridgeworth and didn't get up in time. Staff friendly. This is not a luxury hotel but was adequate for our requirements.

There is minimal WiFi, certainly not enough for simple emails. Bathroom is clean and ok, shower very hot and decent. The breakfast was very good. staff were friendly and welcoming,...

The staff at the Railway make you feel very special. The hotel is conveniently situated adjacent to Sawbridgeworth station, with a large car park and is spotless. The "pub grub" is excellent value for money, washed down with local real ales. If you are looking for a family run hotel serving a great breakfast, lunch and dinner this is the...

I visit this hotel several times a year and am never disappointed from the welcome through the door, right through to paying the bill...the breakfasts are the best.....the staff are all friendly and always extremely helpful..the rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is plenty of off road parking. The hotel is ideally situated for stansted airport and travelling...

Needed accommodation near Bishops Stortford to take my 90 year old mother to visit family but didn't fancy hotels on offer which are mainly chains and/or too close to Stansted. Had had lunch at the Railway on a number of occasions, so decided to give it a go. The Railway is a pub with rooms to the rear. Couldn't fault...
