The Saffron Hotel in Saffron Walden offers 16 individually decorated en suite rooms, all comfortably furnished.

At the Saffron Hotel, the restaurant provides an excellent menu with a choice of mouth-watering food that is sure to delight. We also offer a children's menu. Saffron Walden takes the second part of its name from the threatening fortification of Walden Castle, erected by the Normans after the Conquest, and the first from the rare and precious saffron crocus, for which the town became famous, used in medicine, cooking and as the source of a rich yellow dye. Appropriately, therefore, Saffron Hotel lives up to its name by the warm, rich, cheerful yellow of its frontage. Dating back to the 16th century, the hotel is at the centre of this quintessentially English market town. Saffron Walden itself is an unspoilt country town, with narrow streets and old buildings, many of them 'pargeted'. The town's specialist shops are well worth exploring. Audley End, England's largest Jacobean mansion, is on the doorstep, and the beautiful university town of Cambridge is just 12 miles away. The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is also within driving distance.
