"Old world charm in excellent location"
We had 2 nights at the Cross Keys Hotel. We were in room 9 which is in the annex. Room was back from the main road so lovely and quiet.Open style shower and toilet which may not suit everyone. Lovely bath in the corner.Room could benefit from one 'comfy' chair - there's lot of space but it was absolutely fine for a couple of nights. You can walk everywhere from this hotel which is great.

Likes:
Location was excellent. The evening meal was delicious and breakfast was good but we had to wait a very long time on the Sunday morning for our food. Fortunately we were not in a rush.
Dislikes:
There was a dreadful draft in the dining room as windows are poorly fitted. I know its listed but this needs to be sorted.Also light over our sink never worked despite advising housekeeping.

The building dates back some 850 years and is one of the most important buildings architecturally and commercially in the center of Saffron Walden.
Restored and renovated in 2012, nine unique bedrooms have been added to the Cross keys award winning food and service. Each one of the bedrooms is different with its own unique character. Including 3 beautiful deluxe rooms added in 2015.

We don’t believe in doing fussy and complicated things with these delicious ingredients, but instead would rather they were complimented, treated with love and brought to the table just as they should be. Eat with us and choose from classic dishes such as fish and chips or Pork Belly. For those who might want to be a little more adventurous, we are proud of our selection of often changing specials. Our Menu is wine matched by wine maker extraordinaire Chester Osborn. We celebrate his palate and viticulture skills by stocking a wide range of his delicious d’Arenberg wines and many more from around the world.

The bedrooms provide all the luxuries of contemporary living. Crisp bed linen, hand-sprung mattresses, Hungarian feather-down duvets, deep free standing slipper baths or monsoon showers are as standard. All the comforts of today are here as well – you will find a flat screen television, Wifi, freeview and a personal iPod dock/iPhone charger in your room. In the morning relax and enjoy breakfast, anything from a 'Full English' to an 'Eggs Benedict' or simply toast and pastries. Our team want nothing more other than to make sure you have a splendid start to your day.

Your stay will not be complete without a visit to our Molly's Coffee and Cake shop, where you can indulge in mouth-watering cheesecakes, delicious ice creams and enjoy any of our coffees and Teapig teas.
