Saracens Head Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Southwell
Reviewed 7 January 2012

stayed 4/1/12 first room offered - room 4 more suitable as a single room it is tiny and cluttered. 2nd room taken room 5 two light bulbs not working and this made room a bit dark. there is no lift at this hotel and lots of stairs - not disabled friendly.

Food advertised in room booklet was not available.

So ordered off the main menu in restaurant when food arrived even this had part of the advertised dish missing and no refund against the price which we felt was high for such poor value £21 approx for just the main course.

Breakfast ordered full english minus the black pudding and it arrived with 1 sausage 1 small rasher bacon no baked beans no fried bread 1 egg and half of a very small tomato no mushroom priced £11 approx poor value again in fact the breakfast looked lost on the plate.

Did not complain seemed no point and will definatly will never stay again

Room Tip: Do not stay here if you have walking problems lots of stairs and no ground floor rooms old building...

Stayed for two nights having booked through a Buy a Gift voucher - this place is lovely. Loads of character. Food is very good, well presented and reasonably priced.

The only poor experience was when we asked for extra milk for tea in our room at 8:30 on Sunday and having been told by the evening receptionist that she would bring it to us - by 10pm we had to go down to reception to remind her only to find that her priority seemed to be having a conversation with somebody on some Social Networking site on the hotel's computer. Outside that, the level of customer service was absolutely first class with the staff being pleasant, and willing to help

Southwell itself is a really interesting place and worth a visit.

Would we make a repeat booking? Definitely.

Rooms are clean but dated.s

Stayed here to attend a wedding at Norwood Park a short walk away. The residents bar open late and night porter with dreads very happy to serve us.

Breakfast was excellent.

At £95 a night a bit pricey but not many alternatives close by. Would stay again.

Four of us had a bar lunch at The Saracens Head Hotel having walked in from the street without a booking. The standard of the food was good and provided quite good value for money. Unfortunately, there was a mix up with our order between the bar staff and the waiting staff which resulted in two of us being served prematurely, almost certainly with someone else's order. This was put down to an inexperienced waitress and everyone was full of apologies. We have come across the hotel's new owner before in Bakewell where he previously ran a quirky hotel. This is a place to visit if you like a slightly excentric patron and love horology - as there is a wonderful collection of old clocks which I remembered from his previous hotel. He must be careful that his staff do not let him down.
