The Cricketers Arms - Hotel, Saffron Walden
Filthy rooms, overly priced.
Booked this "hotel" to access Heathrow airport. Its 25 pounds each way for a cab. The place was filthy, from sticky stained carpets to chipped and soiled doors. Check in is standing at the busy bar waiting for someone to give you 5 mins in between serving tables. This place seems unaware that people will arrive tired from the airport. The check in guy was rude, hyper and challenged me when I complained that the room was too dirty. He went away and spoke to a "grown up" and gave me another equally dirty room, this time with bed sheet with blood stains. After a week in Vienna and Zurich- with cheap excellent hotels, this place was the worst I have ever experienced. So dirty...

Friendly and welcoming
Nicely situated on the Green, the Cricketers was friendly and welcoming. There is a log fire in the lounge making a cosy area for a drink. Breakfast was good and fresh fruit salad would have made it even better. The shower was good but the bathroom could have done with more ventilation.

Highly recommended
My wife and I stayed for a Sunday night before flying from Stanstead on holiday. I had communicated with the pub with regards to the time food was served to and was very glad we made sure we arrived in time as the roast dinner was superb. There is a hugh car park and the bedrooms are behind the main pub ( down a hall way ) and check in very efficient which made for a very peaceful stay. The room was very comfortable, the staff excellent and breakfast excellent so a great start to our holiday. Highly recommended

There is potentially so much to like about The Cricketers, but they continue to not invest in the rooms. Furniture is tatty, maintenance issues not addressed, shower not draining, catches broken on windows, tie back hooks missing, areas of damp in the wall. Reluctantly I will not be returning

Stayed one night, was a bit noisy and had trouble sleeping due to a hen night! Otherwise, very happy with stay etc.
