We headed to Lynton and Lynmouth for a long weekend. Having never been before we had no idea where to go and happened upon the crown after our evening meal at the excellent Oak Rooms. The atmosphere in the pub was FANTASTIC! It was just myself and my better half and we took two stools at the bar. The locals... More

I have stayed at this hotel (several years ago, under different management) but decided to treat us this time (and will be reviewing that hotel shortly). Having had fond memories of the food here, we decided to visit for a meal one evening. Yes, the pub is strongly oriented towards locals but having visited regularly some years ago I knew... More

We visited this 'hotel' in the summer of 2013 hoping to have a pleasant evening meal in what looked like an inviting pub/restaurant. How wrong we were. We went into the bar and immediately felt that this place was run exclusively for the locals who were sat round the bar making it difficult for visitors to order food. When we... More

We stayed at the Crown on Sunday the place is a very old pub serving real ale and good quality food at a reasonable price. The rooms have been up graded from some of the earlier reviews but this is a very old place and would need masses to bring up to modern standards but it is quaint and excellent... More

We have just stayed over for a wedding and were not disappointed; The Crown is lovely and very well situated for exploring the town and the local area which I wish we had had the time to do! The rooms were very cosy and clean and the bathroom was immaculate.The beds were very comfortable and very quiet. We couldn't hear... More

When we arrived we thought what have we booked here. the entrance was shabby. We had to pay £30 for our small dog to stay. But the staff was very polite, the barman Joe was a nice lad its a shame he supported Totenham. He has been working there a long time and seen a lot of different managers come... More

We stayed 1 night at The Crown while passing through after finding it online in a quick search. Very pleased with the service, everyone here was very friendly and happy to help. The location is good and only minutes from the harbour. Inside is very typical old English hotel/B&B. Very quirky but a lot better standards than many other older... More

I was initially put off by some of the reviews on here, but checking the dates and some of the comments they date back to previous owners. The hotel is very much in transition, some of the decor is past its prime but the new owners have made a start, for instance our bathroom was obviously recently installed (although having... More
