    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.

    We stayed with a wedding party and on what they were charging per night, we expected slightly more than we actually got. While the staff and the the building itself were all really very lovely, the rooms and what you got for your money, sadly were not. Whilst they were big enough, they were very noisey, the double glazing was... More

    I booked eleven rooms recently in preparation for a sales meeting. It was a very warm night and the outside courtyard was very busy and was still very hot at 10pm. Trouble was nobody asked guests to keep the noise down and staying in room two by 1am the noise was ridiculous. It tainted the evening and I complained when... More

    One would think that the hotel would be staffed well enough to service and cater for full capacity. Unfortunately this appeared not to be the case when we stayed there as part of a wedding party. The water in the bedroom ceased completely causing quite a problem and breakfast was pretty mediocre. Specific orders were not followed and the general... More

    My bedroom (room 7) was a nice size room with all the facilities needed - big comfy bed, flat screen TV with tea & coffee making facilities & a big funky framed mirror. The bathroom was very clean, quite small but fine for me. It took a bit of fiddling to get the mix of hot & cold water right... More

    A great venue for people travelling on business or those with a flight from stansted. Great Dunmow is a lovely little town/village and this hotel fits in with its character and charm! The hotel itself is good value for money and has a lovely menu to go at! The staff are really nice, friendly and attentive and take sites like... More
