We stayed at this hotel whilst competing at Silverstone. The staff were, i must say very friendly but our overall experience was average at best. the rooms were basic but clean with old furniture. The food in the evening was good when it eventually arrived (a one hour wait ) unfortunately no apology or explanation. The breakfast was self service... More

Room very tired, furniture old and decrepit. Upholstery was worn out and in some cases in rags. Staff not very helpful or friendly. Bathroom door didn't close. Located in the centre of the town but very noisy, like sleeping on the M1- when I slept. Clock in centre of square which chimed every hour day and night. Bed very clean... More

I've stayed here more than a dozen times on business. The hotel has a motor racing theme. The rooms vary in quality and appointment but this isn't really reflected in the price so it's pot luck if you get a good one. I've never used the restaurant, I tend to walk to the Dhan shiri curry house around the corner... More

As you are regular visitor if you have a favourite room if you let us know we can do our best to allocate it to you on your next visit. There is nothing wrong with the cleanniness of... More

we stayed here for one night for the Gran Prix. I expected the price to be inflated and it was which is fair for this weekend. The staff in general are excellent very friendly and great customer service skills. However the Hotel is dirty and very unkept. Breakfast was almost inedible, what is almost as concerning is the total denial... More

If you did not like your room when you checked in we could have rectified the problem. Nevertheless we did respond to you by email, spoke over the... More

Hotel is old and inviting, not many parking spaces and not easy to find where to park. Rooms were clean and were tidied every day. Furniture was old but not shabby. Had dinner on the Saturday night in the bar. Ordered whole sea bass, it took 1 hour to arrive. I did ask why it was taking so long twice... More

We stayed at The Crown Hotel a couple days ago and totally loved it... We booked 3 rooms (2, 4 and 20) and loved the traditional decoration. The staff was always there to help with a smile and the breakfast was great! Totally recommend it! Brackley is a lovely small town and we also enjoyed visiting Oxford which is only... More

I wonder what organisation awarded this hotel 3 stars - Laterooms website indicates this was the AA jointly with VisitBritain. I find it hard to believe any inspector has been here in the last year.
