Likes:
Despite the grey and windy weather we quite enjoyed our stay at the Saracen's. The room was clean, cosy, warm, spacous and equipped for our needs. The double bed was amazing and the bathroom was tidy.
Dislikes:
The entrance door to the room is a little draughty and the noise from the street is well present and loud when sleeping.

Great team running this place, made me feel very welcome.
Room was a little dated, but fine for a short stay. Staff welcome and service far outweighed the quality of the room, so would stay again based in that alone. Read less

Food was excellent. Breakfast was cooked to order. Also had lunch and would recommend the home-made specials on the board.

"Not exactly the warm and cosy ensuite room we had expected from a quaint looking 16 century inn."
From the outset we weren't very happy as there wasn't anywhere to park. Then the room was very cold, draughty very damp. Heating eventually sorted but gaps round door and damp old windows didn't help.… Read more
"Not exactly the warm and cosy ensuite room we had expected from a quaint looking 16 century inn."
From the outset we weren't very happy as there wasn't anywhere to park. Then the room was very cold, draughty very damp. Heating eventually sorted but gaps round door and damp old windows didn't help. One built in cupboard stuffed full of spare folding beds. No hooks for coats of extra clothes. Ensuite very dirty, old and tired paint and dust everywhere. No hooks to hang up towels. The teaspoons were disgusting. The sheets, towels and bed were clean otherwise we would have left there and then. Read less
Likes:
The breakfast was ok and we both ate it both days. The staff were friendly.
Dislikes:
The noisy location of the room right on a busy road. Why wasn't there any secondary glazing and a door that was sturdy and not one which looked like it had been bashed in several times. The dirt.

The Saracen’s Head Inn is a traditional English pub serving real ales, fine wines and home-cooked food every lunchtime and evening.

The original stables surrounding the courtyard have been converted into stylish, comfortable en-suite accommodation available for Bed and Breakfast. During the conversion, we discovered an underground bear pit near the cellar. This was used for bear 'baiting' (fighting) over 300years ago, thankfully a tradition no longer kept!

We are situated a stone’s throw away from the fashionable shops and boutiques in the High Street of Amersham Old Town. Trains from Amersham Station go directly into London in less than 30mins. It is also extremely popular with walkers who wish to explore the countryside surrounding us.

Amersham - probably more than any other similar small town in England - preserves in the streets of the Old Town the same general appearance that it displayed during the 17th and 18th centuries. There is evidence that a Roman Villa existed in the area (any remains now believed buried under Shardeloes Lane). However, the origins of the town go back to pre Saxon times. Amersham was then called Agmodesham. The Doomsday Book listed Amersham as Elmodesham, with 6 manors, one belonging to the wife of Edward the Confessor. In 1200, King John granted the town a market and fair, the fair is still held every year on the 19th and 20th of September, the market every Tuesday, but it has moved to Amersham on the Hill. The Reformation had some roots in the town as several Lollards were condemned to death and burnt at the stake, a memorial on the hill above the town commemorates this event and in 2001 the people of Amersham performed a community play re creating the events of the time.
