I'm not one to make a fuss, and if something is not up a standard I expect, I wouldn't be lining up to complain, but I think people ought to know about a place before they book it. I booked the room a few days before arriving and as I was pushed for time, I did not read any reviews... More

I stayed at a weekend and was not expecting much after reading reviews but I really couldn't believe the filthy ness off the place, I pulled the "housekeeper" and she didn't care, I then spoke to landlady and it went over her head!! I even overheard her say writing reviews on websites as "sad" I was so offended that this... More

Hotel is old, bad service, everything is dated including the landlady /manager who wears dated clothes, she needs help. Double booked us, then blamed us , took cash which looked like it didn't go through the books.

I was staying on a Sunday night so I would be on hand for a meeting on Monday morning. I did not have high expectations after reading reviews on Trip Adviser. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly. My room was large with a huge bathroom. It was clean warm and had everything I needed. Breakfast was good and... More

My wife and I stayed on a Saturday night. When we arrived, the bar was fairly full with locals who had obviously enjoyed a few drinks and so it was quite loud, and slightly intimidating. However, the barman who checked us in was incredibly helpful and friendly. And later, over a pint of beautifully well kept, and reasonably priced Sussex... More

I stayed at the Crown Inn a few weeks back for the weekend and I have to say it was great value for money. Very warm welcome and friendly staff. Rooms were more than adequate and the food was exeptional serving large portions and good quality ingredients, I would definately stay there again.

l stopped at this awful place on january. Think pontins standards of filth, dreadful food, outdatedness, rude staff and bad service. Thats what you get at this dreadful hole too. Avoid at all costs. I do not think the owner has improved things at all following thr hotel insrpectors visit. It is suitable for DSS accomodation and nothing more.

A very pleasant central hotel with friendly helpful staff. The breakfast was plentiful and enjoyable. The room was large with a large bathroom also. The open fire in bar was particularly welcoming on a wet and windy evening.

My wife and I had a lunch bar snack today at The Crown. We were a bit taken aback at the 50's feel to the place and surprised to find that there was no restaurant area and food was to be served in the public bar (nowhere else was available as this is mainly a hotel). The other clientele appeared... More

Despite booking in advance, our room was given away before we arrived with no warning or phone call, so we were left searching around for another place to stay at the last minute. The staff were not apologetic at all and we heard from the next place we found that they are renowned for doing this.
