We had the hotel booked out for the night before and night of our wedding weekend just gone and can say we were extremely happy with the entire experience. The rooms were clean and the decor was very quirky and appropriate for the feel of the hotel. Staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. Excellent value for money and we are already talking about revisiting for our anniversary next year!"

We recently stayed at The Saracens Head Hotel for a family wedding. Our double room was nicely furnished and had all the things we required for a pleasant stay. The White Company toiletries were divine! I needed to borrow the use of an iron and ironing board and this was no problem at all. The reception staff were very helpful when booking taxis to the wedding venue and back to the airport and the breakfast staff were friendly and amenable. We had an enjoyable evening in the bar the night before the wedding. The breakfast menu was nice and varied - I did find it odd that a quality establishment like the Saracen's Head Hotel only provided a bowl of fruit you could help yourself too, no nice fresh fruit salad or even tinned grapefruit or prunes. All in all a very pleasant stay and a place I would be happy to return to.
We have just spent the weekend here for a friends birthday and I have to say we had the most amazing time! There was a large group of us & nothing was too much trouble for the manager Jeff & his team. The meal in the private dining room was 5 star and the buffet lunch we had was every bit as good. Check in was smooth and all of our requests were dealt with super efficiently. The rooms were spotless & very comfortable. Loved the music & the atmosphere in the bar. A special mention to Rob behind the bar who was a legend keeping us topped up at all times & still managed to make the best Espresso Martinis even with a full bar. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel & cant wait to come back again.
