We stayed here for one night en route to Dorset on holiday on 1 August 2014, nearly a year ago. Given the mixed reviews, I felt it only fair to review the Crown, even after all this time. Booking-in was no issue at the bar and our room was in need of an upgrade, but had everything that was needed... More

My wife booked thiz hotel for its convenience to Alton Towers and that it was a real ale pub. My son and I arrived to be told the pub was closed. This left me and my son with the issue of no evening meal on a bank holiday weekend. We wrre also the only guests staying. Rooms comfortable enough although... More

Room booked by Steve Howitt for partners birthday on Good Friday. The room was small and cramped with a broken bed. The bar is expensive but guest beers were nice. Food was great, not much choice for vegetarians. Yes we were woke up in the morning by a crowing cockerel but we were in the countryside. The room and bathroom... More

After seeing some of the reviews I really didn't know what to expect from our stay but we had a great time! Myself and son stayed here while on a mini break to Alton towers, it's 15 mins away so made it a great choice. We received a very warm welcome from staff and the locals when we arrived and... More

The pub/BnB is very quaint. The Crown Inn is very much a good old traditional pub and its decor rings true. The staff are very friendly are so are the locals. The area that leads to the rooms are the rooms themselves let it down slightly. Its very dated which isn't the issue but it was slightly run down. All... More

Two of my friends booked here for a family event nearby. We should have read the reviews before. One friend arrived and had zero sleep due to excessive noise from the bar below and other residents. After checking out she found out she had been overcharged and despite appealing to the Crown and Booking.com, they would not refund her money.... More

This is one of the worst places I've ever stayed at. There is 0 sound proofing between the floors and between the rooms. I paid for a large room and within 5 minutes I asked to be moved to another room as it felt like being in the pub - the noise is just so loud (music, people talking). They... More

We're fairly local to the Crown and after a busy expedition to Ashbourne the Saturday before Christmas, we decided to get away around 1:30 into the local countryside and decided to stop by the pub for a light lunch and a beer. We've previously been for evening dinner and was quite impressed with the quality of food and customer service.... More

My husband and I booked a room here for our anniversary to stay in after a day at Alton Towers. It was nice short distance from the park, and when we arrived we walked into a lovely friendly atmosphere with a gorgeous cosy bar. We were shown up to our room which was just the right size for us and... More
