A very comfortable bed in a fairly well equipped room but in my part of the house nor all the rooms are en-suite. The curtains were rather thin which in the summer could affect some light sleepers.
Although close to a busy rood, I didn’t find the noise intrusive.
A cooked breakfast is only available from 08:00, however the kitchen/dining room was laid up for an adequate cold meal, with the best blackberry jam I have tasted for years.
The nearby Lion & Lamb pub is friendly and serves excellent food at a reasonable charge.
Overall, it is a good value B&B handy for Stansted airport, without the facilities of an airport hotel but at a more sensible price. I plan to stay again.
It is essential to phone before you arrive because someone from the pub has to pop over to check you in.

We arrived here late after a disasterously slow wait for passport control on our return from our holidays.
I was amazed to see how close our room was to the runway ! However we heard no flight noise at all during the night and slept like logs in a very comfy bed with very comfy pillows.
Breakfast next morning was an amazing choice of foods

I was looking for a "cost-effective" place to stay to get me nearer to London/Gatwick airport after a friend I was meant to stay with was taken ill last minute. Knowing that I would be taking Darftord crossing, I was looking at Harlow/Bishop's Stortford area, and this was one of the first hotels that caught my eye on the 'net. After a bit of research I decided to go for Little Hallingbury Mill based on it's quaint description (and exceptionally reasonable price), and was not dissappointed. A little difficult to find in the dark/wet weather (they plan to put up a clearer signage on the junction), I was pleased to see an old C19th Mill, annex and Millhouse converted to rooms, snug bar and dining area. Exceptionally friendly staff/owners made me feel very welcome, discussing the geography and history of the Mill/functioning waterwheel/gearset that is a feature of the bar over a nice cold pint of Stella (Ale and other lagers available). I turned up too late for dinner (I didn't get there til ~10pm), but was offered sandwiches if required. A traditional full English (cereals etc also available) set me up in the morning for my continued drive. All in all, excellent value for money. Would recommend to friends/family.
