After a day out at the Towcester dog racing (see separate review "brilliant dog racing at Towcester") we had an evening meal, stayed one night and had breakfast. Evening meal - we had a party of 13, but hadn't booked, so just before going off to the racing we asked the Manager and he would put us in our own... More

We had a wonderful stay at The Saracens Head. The presentation and cleanliness of the hotel is excellent and the staff were most attentive and friendly. The waitresses at breakfast could not do enough for us and our coffee cups were regularly refilled, one waitress Maddie was especially helpful. We definitely intend to return to this area and this hotel... More

Stayed overnight for work and had a very nice room, with a comfy bed and large bathroom. Had free wifi in the room, which was great for work. My room, number 3, overlooked the main road, so the traffic noise might be a problem for some people, but didn't disturb me. I ate in the restaurant and the service was... More

We stayed luckily only one night. After having a meal that was horrible with restaurant staff not interested in hearing our complaint, we had to endure a night of loud revellers from the bar outside our room shouting and laughing until almost 1am. I'm all for enjoying yourself but needed to sleep as week night and down on business! After... More

A number of my relatives and friends stayed at the Saracens this week and all the guests were unanimous in their description of the food. Mainly dinner was inedible. One couple didn't finish dinner and had a takeaway pizza from Milanos across the road (excellent by the way) another sent her curry back as it was so watery with a... More

Thank you for completing some feedback on behalf of your friends and family. I am sorry to hear that they were disappointed with the food quality.

Great hotel and great value. Nestled in the heart of the town with good parking. I stayed on business with 3 colleagues who were suitably impressed as well. The Rooms really clean and seem to have been modernised recently without loosing the charm of what is clearly a very old building full of character. Highly recommended.

Dear Robin F Thanks for a five star review. To be called a "cracking little nugget" is something that brings a smile to my face. Clean modern rooms and character are quotes we do appreciate. I am also delighted your three colleagues were also suitably impressed. Come back soon! More
