The hotel and staff were so much better than our previous experiences at an Old English Hotel in the area.We too got moved from room 11 with the interconnecting door with no problem! Our second room (2) was smaller but a lot quieter. The staff were all very friendly especially the man who checked us in and David who looked...

Stayed over the Easter weekend and despite trouble with noise (by the staircase to the restaurant/bar and noisy neighbours with interconnecting door) on our first evening we were moved and accommodated in a different room which was much quieter and very pleasant. Overall it was a good stay. We had dinner on three evenings, good service and choice of food...

The service we experienced at The Saracens Head was way beyond what we expected. From the very friendly and helpful man who checked us in, the efficient and chatty bar staff, to David who looked after us at dinner and the young lady who served us breakfast, all were happy to help. Many hotels could learn a lot from this...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Saracen's Head. The room was excellent - bed really comfortable and furnishings very nice. Bathroom clean too. The staff were lovely and so helpful. Probably the best Old English Inn we have stayed in so far. When mistakes were made apologies given and immediately rectified. Very good service by all staff.

What a find, a lovely old coaching inn, plenty of character and wonky floors, but well appointed with comfortable bed and good shower. Good breakfast made to order included in the price. We stayed the night after visiting the racecourse and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of pubs in the town including its own brewery hidden in the back...
