We stayed here for one night after a late arriving flight into Stansted. The staff stayed up to greet us at 1am. The room was beautifully decorated with everything you expect. It was very cosy. The bathroom was adequate, maybe a little on the small side. But not enough to be a problem. Breakfast was good. Many options available. Great... More

The bed rooms hear are fantastic. The breakfast was spot on. the service and food I got the night before was even better. I honestly can not fault this place one bit and that's why I struggle to understand people's bad reviews. Thanks again and I am sure I will be returning again very soon.

Friendly staff, adequate room, breakfast a big let down, the full breakfast was not very hot, the sausage was like rubber, after previous reviews about the breakfast being really good I was really disappointed, the evening meal was slightly better but don't get the cheesecake, it was tasteless, I asked if I could have some ice cream on the side...

Bedroom ok. Bathroom small and in need of refurb, stains on floor, grubby grouting etc. View over beer barrels in back yard not that nice. Kept awake by disco in hotel on Saturday night, which went on till 2am, noise travelled to our room, so got very little sleep. Breakfast staff really nice, but eggs are not great, overdone by...

I was visiting my son in Gt Dunmow and on Monday decided to finish off our visit In the hotel for a meal. My son phoned the hotel and was told we could only get a bar meal as the restaurant wasn't open until 6.00pm. This suited us because our flight back was at 8.00pm. When we arrived at 5.00pm... More

Came here based on TA reviews and also that the local travel lodge was in the top spot for Great Dunmow The reception staff were very efficient, checking about room configuration before we arrived. The compact carpark is around the back of the hotel via Chequers Lane so be warned The hotel is fine, the bar pleasant and the staff... More

stopped at this hotel whilst in the area on business. The check-in was OK. Room could do with renovation especially in the bathroom which was very tired. The memory of the hotel was the appalling breakfast experience. I ordered the Eggs Royal which I was looking forward to. It took over 30mins to be brought out after chasing. As you... More

We chose this hotel for an overnight stay. The location was convenient and the bed was comfortable but we would definitely not consider this a four star hotel. Breakfast was unappetising and, although the staff were nice enough, service was lacking. For the price we paid it was not a good choice.

Staying over for a 2 day weekend break (Friday/Saturday night) to attend a wedding nearby, we found the Saracen's Head Hotel very pleasant and in a perfect and suitable location in the lovely town of Great Dunmow. Nicely furnished and decorated room, great bar, with all hotel/bar staff very welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts ample with good variety. Arriving late on... More
