We spent three nights at this Old and Quaint Inn. The rooms were small but clean and quite suitable for what we needed, which was to attend a family celebration near by. Although the smallish rooms were adequate for our purposes the halls and stairs are in dire need of fresh carpet and paint. However it is more important to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here whilst having a break at alton towers, it is a very handy distance from the park, the staff were lovely, it was a great price and it was a lovely inn. Couldn't knock it for the price!

We stayed here for two nights on a trip to Alton Towers. The location was great with a half hour drive required. The Crown Inn is an old country pub so don't expect luxury. We had rooms 6 and 7. The rooms are small and I would describe facilities as basic but clean and tidy. There is no air conditioning... More

The accommodation was just ok. The staff were very friendly and we had a wonderful evening meal there. Breakfast was very nice too. With a bit of a facelift to the interior it would be good. Garden and entrance was pretty but a bit difficult to find.

Food, drink and staff were all fine. Room Seven very small. Ran out off hot water in ensuite shower. Mouldy ceilings. Duvet cover stained. Very thin walls between rooms (amusing). Oh yes the Rooster wake up!!!! When i mentioned it whilst checking out I was told that is to be expected out in the country. Well, i've lived my whole... More

Not that long ago, I reviewed this B&B from our trip last year and couldn't praise it enough. However, upon returning this past week, I am so incredibly disappointed. Only one member of staff was present for our one night stay; a very old, bad tempered and sour faced man. He was abrupt, and rude to the point where I... More

We dropped-on this place after a day at Alton Towers. It was early one Weds evening, so the place was fairly quiet, but the barman was very welcoming and there was a pleasant - and very sunny - terrace to sit on. Food was tasty - I had a Hamburger with cheese and bacon and lovely chips. Very big and... More

We stayed here for a friend's wedding. The room itself was nice but the bed squeaked everytime I moved and the walls are so thin I could hear next door's snoring. The bathroom was fine, apart from the shower head not working properly. Breakfast was average. Staff were friendly. Oh and also the Cockerell was an awful noise all morning.

I regret I cannot recommend the Crown Inn. We did not like the room, there was a leak from the bathroom unit or the food at dinner. However the beer was very good and both the landlord and staff were welcoming.
