We booked four rooms for a midweek stay in the second week of December. The restaurant was in full swing and Xmas looked like it had arrived. We were slightly wary as we'd all stayed at a hotel in Bristol the previous week and had been kept awake by loud music and partying in the hotel. We needn't have worried... More

I stayed at the Saracen's Head for two nights in November while at a conference held at nearby Whittlebury Hall which was fully booked. It's in the middle of Towcester so there are a few pubs and restaurants to choose from. It took a few minutes to check in as the lady doing reception work was also working in the... More

Treated my mum to a lunch around 2pm today, we'd been a few months before and ordered the same soup and sandwich that we had previously had as we'd enjoyed it so much! The restaurant wasn't very busy, our soup and sandwich too 40 minutes to arrive. Cutlery in the pot on the table was dirty. The young waiter serving... More

I am sure the accommodation and food facilities are excellent, but we use this place on a Monday evening after playing sport at the local sports centre. We usually go in for a couple of beers and then head off. Whilst there is a good selection of beers on offer, very rarely are they 'all on', with at least one... More

I had reason to review the Saracens Head Restaurant about two weeks ago and I gave a very bad review. This I went for a Lunch and I must say that it was really good. I know that the Restaurant manager has been changed, as a regular user of the Saracens Head I just hope that this continues. Well done... More

Myself and my husband have just visited this lovely hotel, and felt the need to comment on the excellent service of their staff. The rooms were lovely, modern and the linen was fantastic. The beds were huge and so comfortable. We did need to change rooms due to the couple next door having a heated row and the manager Beata... More

Although expensive for a jacket potato (more than £5)the food was hot and delicious. The service was good. Would recommend more highly if prices were less inflated. The atmosphere in the bar is friendly and lively but with a cute hint of a good old fashioned pub

This hotel is in a great location,the rooms are lovely and clean and the food very tasty but the whole thing is spoilt by the poor service. We arrived on Saturday morning and requested that a taxi be called to take us to the races. Instead of them calling a taxi for us they printed off numbers and told us... More

Stayed in this gorgeous hotel for two nights with my husband. Absolutely amazing staff, our room was number 6 and it was gorgeous. So clean, great nights sleep on a very comfortable bed, and very quiet, considering its on the main road into Towcester, even the pub restaurant beneath the hotel was quiet, the rooms are well soundproofed. The food... More

If staying in shiny new or modern hotels is your thing then this isn't for you. If you like charm, character and great service then this is for you. The fact that the same member of staff checked me in, served me my dinner and drinks and was there to serve breakfast in the morning gives some indication of the... More
