Score from 123 reviews Very good
Very friendly and helpful from the moment we walked through the door. Welcoming open log fire, which was much appreciated after a long cold day at Duxford. Beds were very comfortable and rooms equipped with tea/coffee making facilities and toiletries in bathroom. I will definitely stay again when visiting the area
Can't think of any negatives
Dirty room full of the previous occupants belongings/rubbish
I had a libel stay at the Queenshead. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. And what a delicious breakfast! Served with care and a great big smile.... Just the way to start the day. Lovely people.
Friendly welcome, nice bar, good location
The staff The food The pub itself and excellent wifi
We didn't check the location of the Hotel as we had assumed that High Street Saffron Walden, ie the address stated, was in the centre of the town. It was our own fault, as it actually mentioned the village of Littleborough as location in the description.
Staff and owners were very friendly and the food was excellent and great value
Wifi not good and no cell phone signal at all
The food was very good, although the evening menu was very limited,what we had was excellent. Breakfast was lovely. Nice pub.
Noisy due to single glazed windows. Also pub noise kept us awake but to be expected as it it was a busy Saturday night.
Friendly welcome. Pleasant room with excellent shower.
The room overlooked the main road which meant heavy traffic going past from 4 am. I had a very broken night's sleep.
Welcoming & friendly family run inn Plenty of room in the family bedroom Food was lovely :D
Noisy saniflow system has to be heard to be believed. Pub was on main wagon route into Saffron Walden so wagons start thundering past at daft o clock in morning. Room was not serviced throughout 3 day stay. Had to ask for more towels and there was only half a roll of toilet paper on arrival!! Shower room/toilet was not very clean and the toilet handle was loose and was not easy to flush the toilet, although when you did you have to put up with 15 mins or so loud noise. Asked for an invoice as a it was a business expense wouldn't provide one then but said they would email one - still waiting. VERY POOR
Character property, good sized room. Staff did rustle up a quick cooked breakfast when told we had to get away early.
No plugs in sink or bath, no hairdryer. We stayed Saturday night and needed an early start on Sunday….pub party on Saturday night meant no sign of staff till 8.15 on Sunday morning (we nearly had to leave without paying!) Then told that breakfast didn't start at weekends till 9 am, despite notice in room saying breakfast from 7am.
A pleasant bedroom with comfortable beds. Good shower. Ample parking.
We waited 1 and a half hours for our evening meal, having been told it would be 40 minutes. We were told this was because they were busy, although we only saw 2 other tables being used. We were told breakfast was at 8 o'clock, but when we got downstairs there was no-one to serve us. After about 10 minutes a family arrived and said that breakfast was at 9 o'clock on Saturdays. The vegetarian option appeared to be 2 vinegarry over- poached eggs ,6 mushroom pieces and 3 enormous chunks of slightly burnt toast! The whole thing seemed disorganised and we wondered if this was due to a lack of competition in the area.
Very good standard of room, comfy bed with home touches including biscuits with tea and coffee. Bathroom goodies essential when you forget like I had!
Landlord & landlady very pleasant. Breakfast very good quality & any request catered for.
Asking for towels several times & receiving two damp bath towels. No hand towels or bath mat. Concerned about the cleanliness of the bathroom, large spiders web & spider in corner of bathroom.
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly people. Didn't have dinner there so can't comment but breakfast was good.
Smokers under bedroom window. Smoke drifted in and noisy till pub closed.
Friendly staff. Food well presented Room comfortable
Cleanliness of pub toilets poor. Room not serviced during our stay, tea, coffee not replenished. Evening menu - many items not available - disappointing.
Another good example of a traditional inn with very good food, and rooms with good beds and very good bathrooms. Has good off street parking lot. The regulars have a nice friendly assortment of dogs, and are amiable folks.
Our room was very big and modern with a nice bed and had en-suite
The bathroom was not as modern as the room When we came down to breakfast there was only the chef left to see to us and he then also checked us out - nobody else present to ask if everything was ok or say goodbye
Meals were very nice.
Good Hotel to stay at, friendly staff
a delightful friendly country pub! we were going to a party in Saffron Walden, but couldn't find a hotel in the town with parking. only 5 minutes away by taxi we found just the spot! there home-cooked meals sounded great. and our breakfast was lovely!
Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice pub with good food.
Creaky flooboards, thin walls
Staff were very friendly and helpful - gave plenty of information re history, and directions. Owners son kindly carried our bags up to our room.
The room was overpriced for what was available. The room was very noisy with creaking floor boards right throughout the hotel. The toilet didn't flush properly and a motor of some sort ran whenever the toilet was used - making a loud noise for 10 - 15 mins each time. We thought a lorry or tractor had stopped outside our bedroom window the first time it happened. It also happened without our using the bathroom - sometimes late at night. Room was very small with no space to lay out suitcases. The shower water didn't run away the first time we used it although may have something to do with the heavy rain we had a few hours before hand. Next day it was fine.
The noise of the traffic
