Stayed for two nights. Ate in the pub first night excellent food and great atmosphere. Breakfast both mornings also very good. Large bowl fresh chopped fruit, freshly cooked breakfast. Came back on second night after visiting family to find that there was private party. Since we was not sure if we could use the bar we despatched to another local... More

Loved it here! I decided to relive my youth by pub crawling in old Amersham with my other half for the night. This was a great base ...large beamed room in the annex.. Number 2...period furniture, very clean, and a fantastic powerful double size shower which along with a full English the next morning knocked the hangover on the head.... More

A one night stay prior to an appointment the following morning Imagine the rooms at the back were of a higher standard than those over the road. As a pub - terrific. Great staff but they really don't know how to run a decent B&B. Not bad pub grub as an evening meal .Breakfast OK (never had breakfast in a... More

Stopped in for a pint while visiting the old town. A very quaint little pub and inn. Was told it would be over 30 minutes for a meal so we didnt order food. Sit in the garden. Its lovely. Enjoyed this little town very much.

A few of us (8) stayed here whilst we were having a family party in nearby Doggetts Wood. The hotel is ideally placed for the centre of Amersham and Doggetts Wood, with the town centre being a 2 minute walk away. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the rooms were clean and tidy. The food was exceptional and... More

My four nights here gave me just what I wanted - a warm and friendly atmosphere, a simple but fully adequate room, pleasing dinner fare in the pub bar below from a menu with interesting variety, and a good English cooked breakfast. Don't expect a five-star hotel - this is a genuine inn in the modest style of early days,... More

The Saracen's Head is really good value if you are looking for accommodation in Old Amersham. Certainly not 'posh', but the courtyard rooms are a generous size and have everything you need. Breakfast is served in the bar and Kerry and staff look after their guests very well. On our last visit I commented that there was no hairdryer in... More

The room was just ok, not really to my standard of cleanliness but acceptable for an overnight stay. Room plug sockets are nowhere near the mirror. Small shower cubicle - which on my first use was cold water only! Informed the staff who quickly sorted it out. The next morning at breakfast I heard another couple complain about the same... More
