About the hotel
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.

Quaint but room for improvement
Tiny bathroom and door handle fell off.
problem with heating on last night. Very slow service if down for start of breakfast period. Could not get out of hotel at 7.45am to get to car so had to go via kitchen. Apparently there was an exit on the 1st floor but we were not told about it.
Friendly staff, attractive accommodation, excellent food
Lovely hotel/restaurant right in the centre of the town.
We had a standard room, no 1. It was a good-sized and attractive room with old wood panelling. We could hear music and chatter from the restaurant room below, but it didn't bother us. Our evening meal was excellent, as was the breakfast, and the staff were friendly and efficient.
