Very clean room and ensuite with gorgeous toiletries. A very comfortable bed with clean white sheets, tasteful decoration, warm colour schemes. The staff were friendly and hard working. Good breakfast and bar meals are good prices.

Booked late it was a matter of no other choice, but I was pleasantly surprised with the Sacarcens Head in Towcester. The young lady on reception was very helpful indeed, the room was a little small, but adequate and clean. The bar area is really nice, mixing between oldie worldie and a little bit contempory. The only downside was the noise, with it being on a busy junction, so had to have the windows closed on a warm evening.

Had our wedding reception at end of May, quite a few mistakes along the way and quite poor communication. But I have to say it all came good on the day and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. Well done Saracens for putting on a great reception.

Actually grew up locally and had drank in the bar many times, but happened to be passing through and stayed on a whim.

Very quaint inside and the room was excellent as was breakfast.

If you need somewhere to stay in or near Towcester or as a stop off near the M1/A43/M40 i would certainly recommend checking here

Value wise was excellent for the standard.

Second time I've stayed here on business. Not a bad size hotel, located in the middle of Towcester. Parking might be a problem if hotel and pub both busy. Rooms not a bad size and staff friendly. Must say that breakfast wasn't the best I've had.

The welcome from Kirstie on Reception could not have been better. Our room number 2 was small but adequate, although the towel rail was too hot and we'd be surprised if others had not been burnt! We had dinner with members of our family, the food was good pub grub and the service was friendly and efficient. We were impressed that breakfast was served until late (until midday, I think). We came down approx. 10.30 having enjoyed reading the paper in bed and enjoyed a cooked breakfast - some items from the cold buffet had run out, but were refreshed on request. The room for the wedding reception looked beautiful and the staff could not do enough to ensure everyone was served with their food quickly and all requests catered for in a pleasant manner. We were particularly impressed that the waitress who had served us at dinner was just as helpful the following day and late into the evening. The quality of the food excellent, not easy when catering for over 70 people. We felt the atmosphere created by the staff enhanced the wedding, which was a very special day. Check out at 11am gave us time to enjoy breakfast with our family before leaving. For anyone looking for a wedding /special celebration venue, we hope will consider The Saracens Head.

Room Tip: Room 11 was very large.
