After 36 hours of travel from NZ to collect my wedding dress before we head down to South coast for our wedding it was awesome to be greeted by Emma the receptionist who remembered us by name after Skype calls to book. Fantastic start to our wedding trip back in the UK now just need to rain to stop. Thank... More

A reasonably pleasant stay in this interesting, 3* refurbished old coaching inn set on the High Street. We stayed in a junior suite in the original building which was spacious and on first inspection looked wonderful and was very clean. There was a pedestal bath in the bedroom and a separate shower and toilet area. The bed was large and... More

For a three star hotel in an old building I thought it was jolly good. Nothing to posh or upmarket but clean and tidy, quiet and decent service. Our room was decent, in need of an update but again it was clean, had a TV and tea making facilities. The outside area was nice and there is an outside bar... More

We booked in for one night after a party. Our room was very clean and comfortable and despite a late night party in the hotel we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast the next morning was very nice with a good choice of quality food. I would certainly recommend the Saracens Head if you are visiting this lovely market town... More

I came here with my friend and our 4 dogs. The staff were incredibly helpful with my vegan diet and prepared a full menu with different options for me, which is such a big deal for me! The room was clean and lovely, there was a beer garden, nice breakfast included, parking was free and the price for the whole... More

We went here on a Thursday evening with our 2 sons. The food was delicious and plentiful. The prices were reasonable. We ordered 2 pizzas, which were delicious, burger and sausages. The only disappointment was the nachos. These were not worth the £7 we paid. The burger was classed as a 'lite bite' but was very substantial. We would definitely... More

We booked a double room, and on arrival discovered that they'd Booked us into a twin - however the friendly reception staff were only too helpful to correct the situation! We stayed for 2 nights in a standard double room, and we're pleased to see that the bedroom was neutrally decorated and adequately appointed; with tea and coffee making facilities,... More

We stayed here for one night. We booked in very late at night after a wedding reception and during another party at the Saracen's Head. The man who booked us in didn't greet us with a ' hello, how are you, pleased to see you' etc. gave us our keys and pointed us to our room. Our room was very... More

The Saracens Head is a 'ye olde world' former coaching inn on Gt Dunmow High Street. The rooms are nicely appointed, clean and comfortable albeit slightly on the small side (or at least ours was). Despite being on the high street the rooms are pretty quiet as the rooms annexe is out back. We only had breakfast, which was very... More

We stayed for two nights. The bathroom was filthy, the toilet and surrounding tiles in particular with a very poor quality finish. The shower head was disgusting and a trickle of water which never really got hot. Breakfast was inedible with very poor waitress service. We would certainly not recommend staying here. Very overpriced for the standard supplied.
