Stayed here for one night. It is in the centre of a lovely village. The accommodation is adequate and the downside is that there is a lot of road noise. Overall a nice place to stay, the staff were very pleasant and the standard of cuisine was very good indeed.

very welcoming staff as we came in I loved the roaring log fires all over the place. One problem was the lack of light in the landing before we got to our room and no sign of any light switch after much investigating. The room was nice only a bit draughty. the heating was on full though which helped. The... More

This was our first stay at The Crown and we found the staff very friendly and welcoming. We had lunch in the bar which was very good, as the were beers on offer. The barman even gave us a jug of water to put our flowers in that we had just bought from the shop nearby. We stayed in a... More

We have stayed here before and returned as they welcome dogs. Room was better this time but both were good. Friendly and attentive staff make this a great stay. Breakfast is very good, fresh and well cooked. This time we returned for Sunday lunch which was also excellent. I would recommend this hotel / restaurant to everyone, especially those who... More

Stayed here at the end of November 2015 on a business trip. As we arrived late we were told we couldn't drink our pint inside the pub area and should take it outside (although it was close to freezing). Meanwhile, however, the barkeeper and a friend did continue drinking inside until well after we finished our drinks. Not a very... More

I was lucky enough to stay in one of the newly refurbished bedrooms at The Crown when I visited recently. I stayed in a twin room with my sister, as we were attending a wedding nearby and I was thrilled to find that the new colour-schemes, furniture and furnishings have given the bedrooms a modern, boutique-hotel feel, but without the...

Always good. Great selection of real ales. John is great! We have been eating in the Crown for the last 7 years and have yet to have a bad meal. Middle of the road regards pricing in Melford and still good value.

Long Melford is a lovely town and would be a great base for touring surrounding towns, villages, National Trust properties etc. I stayed at the Crown over a weekend for a wedding nearby. It was clean, and the staff were friendly, but some of the bedroom and bathroomj fittings were dated, not working and in need of repair. Breakfast was... More
