      Our stay at the Saracens Head Hotel was very pleasant for us both. The staff were all very welcoming and obliging. The location meant that we were near to Silverstone which was our purpose for the weekend, and near enough to ensure travelling was a stress free one.

      Had a lovely time, we attended a wedding locally. All staff were really pleasant and friendly, especially the Manager, who was thoroughly helpful and friendly. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Close to Silverstone circuit.

      Room v small. Bed and floor sloped badly. Restaurant hopeless on Sat night. 1 1/2 hour wait for dinner. Staff handled situation V poorly. Food terrible when it arrived, which was sent back followed by us walking out of the Restaurant

    • Couple
      10.0

      The staff were all amazingly friendly, the food was great and the room very nice and spacious

      The only minor thing was that there was only 1 bath towel in the double room. We didn't mind though

    • Group of friends
      6.4

      The comfortable beds and the food, which was very nice.

      The price was very high.

    • Older travelers
      5.4

      It was close to the Silverstone circuit.

      Hotel really needs a make-over in all areas. Cleanliness in bar and dining room needs to be improved. On two occasions the breakfast was unsatisfactory; 1st - egg not cooked, 2nd breakfast cold. Mushrooms tasted like the fat needed changing. The toilet in room was hard to flush and the sheets on bed were not ironed.

    • Older travelers
      4.6

      The meals at the hotel are always very good and reasonably priced. It is very well situated in Towcester to the main street and shopping area.

      There were a number of disappointing aspects to this visit at the hotel. Despite having stayed there twice before, we are not sure if we will stay again. We were given incorrect information about services in town, the cleanliness of the room was inadequate and we often had to search out staff.

    • Older travelers

      Very friendly staff and excellent service, Good well priced menus, excellent value with the bookings.com pricing, Very well located for Silverstone Circuit. Would go again. BT

      Though staff helpful, efficient and friendly.Not enough of them at breakfast on the Friday Sarturday and Sunday making service slow which delayed my leaving the hotel for the day breakfast served 7pm weekdays 8pm weekends.Car park was full on two nights with parking in the area some distance away !

      Very helpful and welcoming staff, good service and food available all day, Its what you expect of an old town Hotel/Bar and value for money, would stay again as great for races and several good golf courses nearby.

    • Single
      6.2

      Staff were friendly and the £40 I paid was good value

      My room had a kitchen fan right outside the window - maybe that is why I got it for £40. I did not eat dinner because the restaurant looked uninviting. However breakfast was OK.

    • Single

      The staff were all excellently trained, very polite and friendly

    • Older travelers

      Hotel was easy to find good parking, comfortable rooms with character, good restaurant and bar.

      Water system a bit noisy

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      It met our needs perfectly as it was just the right distance on our journey to a family event. It was great value for money and the staff (particularly on reception/bar duty) were very pleasant and accomodating. A couple of minor irritations were quickly dealt with, nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was excellent... and a good selection of beers!

    • Single
      6.6

      The room I was allocated was very noisy. Loud voices could be heard well beyond midnight from the courtyard. The man serving breakfast appeared under stress despite only one other person being in the dining room and I only wanted tea and toast!
