Stayed here one night on business. Olde worlde building full of character. But with nicely refurbished bathrooms, so the accomodation was to good standard. The rooms are attached to the pub serving a good selection of real ales & good selection of pub food. Food & service was excellent, followed by a nice breakfast next morning. Staff were also friendly... More

My parents have lived in Towcester for 17 years, and the only reason I stayed here was because there was no bedroom space for me and my partner at their house! The hotel itself is rather nice; clean and comfortable, with large rooms that are well-decorated and furnished. No problem at all with the hotel stay, although our toilet never... More

The Saracens Head Hotel is an excellent and well presented hotel. My room was very comfortable and the bed was excellent. Breakfast was well presented with a comprehensive menu and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We pre booked for lunch for 4 adults and 1 child. The bookings advisor sent the menu for us to pre order which was a very good idea as it was going to be very busy. Food was most delicious. My father and I had soup which was nice and hot. We all had a roast lunch and there was... More

We stayed at The Saracens Head for one night after a family wedding, we were allowed to check in before 2pm as our wedding started at 2, the room was large and extremely comfortable and clean with a massive comfy bed and en suite bathroom. The manager and staff very friendly and the inclusive full English breakfast was delicious. We... More

Stayed at The Saracen's Head in March 2014. Overall, very impressed. Looks recently refurbished and its been done really well. I've read some reviews stating that the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. This couldn't be farther from the truth, everyone was completely the opposite. The room itself, whilst small, was very nice and perfect for our needs. In common with... More

Anybody entering The Saracens Head restaurant for the first time would almost certainly feel a sense of excitement. The restaurant is impeccably furnished and gives off a decent vibe. But for me that's where the positives end. The food is average and the lack of real ale is a shame to me personally. The Saracens Head has potential in abundance... More
