If you want to stay in a peaceful area and do not mind to take the underground from the towncenter, The Old Crown Inn is a good choice. If you need to be updated by using WiFi - unfortunately this was not working. I asked about this service, but the girl only gave me a card with some passwords but... More

I saw the photos and just had to stay here on our first trip to Europe because I absolutely loved the architecture. Seemed to evoke a quintessential representation to me of old time London. When we arrived, indeed, the building was lovely to see. The interior of the bar has a quaint old feel with beautiful woodwork everywhere. The area... More

Expensive for a room we were really not happy with, smelt musty and damp, bathroom had mould, everything unclean and tired, plus unable to sleep due to the racket below the room from the pub that was playing thumping music until 1am - would not recommend to anyone as you can get a much better place for less money elsewhere....

This pub attached hotel is awful, old, run down, not that clean with a poor breakfast. The reviews were varied but I can not understand the high scores. The twin room, 106 was tiny, the feet of the person in one bed wad 30cm from the head of the second person. The bed linen worn and miss matched, one of... More

We booked a room last minute and it was the last room available. We arrived at the pub and parked, went in early (10.30) but got a very warm welcome and an offer of a coffee. They said we couldnt check in until 12pm but they got our room ready early and checked in at 11am. Awesome service! Unfortunately our... More

i was too confused, while booking the hotel, and luckily i booked it. and the staff is too good supporting and also offers some more time to stay without any other charges. Really a good experience. Near to station Archway.

We were looking up family history and general history of London so stayed here as near to Highgate cemetery and reasonable price. Patsie is a lovely landlady and her staff are all wonderful, helpful and friendly. This is a pub with b & b. but we had the smallest double room as all that was available this weekend and it...

Just needed a bed with dinner.. and this place done a perfect job to accommodate my needs. Perfect! Best Fish & Chips in town! and a lovely Doombar! Very friendly atmosphere, surrounded by people from all over the world. Perfect if you want to practice French.. as I did!!

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Old Crown Inn, to be honest I still don't know what to make of the place! Upon arrival the landlady was lovely, very helpful and warm. We had booked a double room and we're given our key to go upstairs. Upon arrival in the room we realised it was... More
