Stayed here as this hotel was recommended to us. We booked two rooms one for us and one for our daughter. Both rooms were outside which didn't impress me, our room was quite small and the bathroom was no bigger than a cupboard, the toilet was dirty so on first impressions my thoughts were disgusting, my husband proceeded to clean...

This place is lovely. Only a one night stopover but it's been perfect. From the moment we walked in the staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. Our room while not huge was clean and cosy and the bed and pillows very comfortable. We both slept very well. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it seemed busy on the...

Once the car park was located, we were welcomed by a friendly member of staff who checked us in. Explained where our room was. On opening the entrance door to the accommodation area we were greated with a mountain of bags of linen, was more like a storage area than a hall way. walking to our room we passed a...

The Company I work for went to the Saracens Head for their Christmas do. Initially when I paid I was told the date and the time as 7.30. Later that month I was told that the time we were eating had been changed to 9.00pm. I felt that this was quite late but decided to go anyway. I went to...

Great staff, very discrete, food has been better. Stayed here with my ex husband, not that his recent fiancé knew of course, nice room, no to my taste (i'm an interior designer), noisy bed. This hotel was an old stabling inn but I found nowhere to tether my moral high horse. Some great nights here under the guise of getting...

Checking in half way through discussing room etc and receptionist decided to start dealing with another guest. 2. On finally being advised of where our room was no help with luggage just told where to...

We stayed for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the room, having expected something older and not quite so comfortable. We had room 9 and other than a rather poor shower, were well satisfied. We were told that the bathrooms are being upgraded next year. We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening as friends had told us...

Stayed here one night before a morning flight from Stansted Airport ( 15 mins away.) A very comfortable hotel, rooms of a high specification, nicely furnished. Lovely breakfast cooked to order. Ample parking at the back. Will definitely use again next time we have an early flight from Stansted.
