Travelling for work, the Saracens had a great B&B room price. I was blown away by the superb room. A huge room. Great décor. A great big bed. Really unexpected. Highly recommend. The staff were helpful.

A disabled car parking space was also reserved for peace of mind. We were... More

Very clean throughout, both our room & public areas. Friendly staff, food very good both dinner and breakfast following morning. Not an extensive menu, but food was well-cooked, hot, and tasty. Also a range of good beers to wash it down. All reasonably priced. Would stay again if in vicinity.
