This is one of the best places I have ever been too, the staff here are fantastic and the food tastes amazing and is very good value for the money I paid. I walked in and from start to finish I felt at home. The lovely receptionist was so pleasant, then to be greeted at the bar by a lovely... More

We stayed for one night as we were going to a party locally. The hotel has been revamped since we last stayed and much improved. Managed to book on booking.com for a very reasonable price and everything about the hotel was great. The room was clean, nicely decorated and Quiet ( we were in room 10) The bed is extremely...

I had a really pleasant stay here, the room was faultlessly clean with high standards of fittings and a comfy bed. The Hotel itself has a nice traditional cosy wine bar and good restaurant (although I didn’t eat the menu looked great). The location is in the village centre which is quite quaint. The staff were great on check in,... More

Ive known the Saracens for many years and through various management but this was the first time I stayed there. Overall, my stay was pleasant. My room was lovely, fashionably styled and with quality furnishings and finish. The heating and hot water were super efficient! The bathroom was very small and lacked the style of the rest of the room... More

We only received the pre order a few days before and it was for only 17 of the guests, as you could not identify those guests on the day, we felt we... More

Cosy room, comfy bed, fluffy bathrobe, white company products and tea and coffee making facilities in your room - it feels like a home away from home. Great, friendly service, breakfast was delicious and freshly made to order which was also a nice touch. I also dined one night in the hotel and service and food were perfect. Would recommend...

We all like surprises. A couple of weeks ago I had two. My wife said that I had to take a Friday off work as she was taking me away for the weekend as a birthday treat. "Where?" I asked. "Not telling, it's a surprise." So we set off bright and early on the Friday morning to take the cats... More

This was our 2nd stay when visiting friends in the area. We were upgraded again to a lovely room -good quality bed linen and toiletries. The receptionist is lovely and very welcoming. We had a meal in the main restaurant which was only adequate. No vegetables included in main course and at £14 per dish, one would have expected it.... More
