The food is great and very good value, there is a good evening menu and the cooked breakfast included in the b&b price is excellant. Our room on the 3rd floor was fairly tired, but clean and at £30 a night b&b in the Cotswolds I am not about to complain.

I stayed at The Saracens Head on Tuesday night and what can I say but a great place to stay and eat, the food was great and the friendly staff were so helpful, I will be back for sure. The hotel is situated in a market place with plenty of parking and lighting.

Quaint old original Coaching Inn Pub serving fine Ales. It has a restaurant and and accomodation too. We stayed here as we were attending a family celebration, and were within walking distance of their house. The hotel itself dates back to the 13th Cenury, however, the rooms are being updated and modernised and ours room 2 was very nice with... More

we booked in for a night's stay to attend a family party in Highworth. All the other hotels and B and B's that looked nice were full so accepted the last room available at the Saracen's Head in spite of it looking fairly basic. It was only £60 so we didn't have great expectations but were still disappointed. On arrival... More

I'm leaving a good rating for this hotel because I only paid £30, which included a cooked breakfast. This was much cheaper than any of the alternatives in a wide area. One criticism I have, is this. I booked the room on Late Rooms, and in the notes to the booking, stated that I would be arriving at 11.45pm, and... More

A modern en-suite shower room, although small, had to leave door open but ok for a single person. I put plug in sink though and couldn't get it out again so had a sink full... More

I was very pleasantly surprised with my 'single' room at the Saracen's Head. It had a double bed, good sized en-suite with bath and was very tastefully decorated. At less than I have often paid for rooms in 'basic' chains of hotels, this room had character, was light and homely. The breakfst was good and the staff friendly. I felt... More

We had requested a quiet room which it was after the pub garden emptied. it was a little smoky as the smoke came into the room from below, but again this went once the garden emptied. the breakfast was amazing and freshly...
