Enjoyable autumn break - Rating 4/5

In spite of dreadful weather we really enjoyed our visit to Thaxted. Eveyone we came in contact with at the hotel was helpful - nothing seemed to be too much trouble.Our room (7) was very comfortable although perhaps the shower could be modernised. The meals were very good. We will certainly stay in the Farmhouse Inn next time we are in the area and will certainly recommend it to friends,

Value Hotel in Thaxted Essex- Rating 4/5

A most warm welcome here with excellent food , adequate facilities in a pleasant room with very clean white bed linen . Good value would be 4* if the decor & bathrooms wereupdated in the rooms & bar .Restaurant very nice .Full English Breakfast choices could be improved ie baked beans instead of hash brown.

Warm Welcome. - Rating 5/5

We stayed here whilst on business for two nights and we were so happy that we did. Arriving late Friday evening we were greeted most warmly and shown to our twin room. It was simply furnished and adequate to our needs. Most importantly it was spotlessly clean throughout and the beds new and comfortable. We ate out in Saffron Waldon on our way there but decide to try the food at the Inn the next evening. We are so glad we did as the food was delicious and the prices most competitive. We hope to work again close by so shall definitely return to this lovely Inn.

Family weekend - Rating 4/5

Really friendly, very accommodating staff who looked after our group of relatives brilliantly.The rooms were clean and comfortable even though a bit 'dated'. For the older members of the group it would be beneficial to have grab rails in the bathroom facilities.The breakfast was really good and we were readily supplied with ample tea, coffee and toast. All orders were fulfilled as requested.Ideal accommodation for group/family occasions.

Authentic experience - Rating 4/5

This is a fine example of a traditional English inn.Situated far from the noise of modern days, close to old towns like Saffron Walden.Interior is old but spotless.The bar and restaurant takes you back to another time when things didn't have to happen so fast.The locals come in large numbers for dinner and a pint in the evening and they are friendly and easy to have a chat with.Food and drink is more than OK.
