A warm friendly welcome before being shown to our spacious, well appointed room. Good wine, good, well conditioned beer, good food and the 'full English' was one of the best cooked, best presented I've had and my wife's scrambled eggs & smoked salmon was to die for. Very relaxed atmosphere where you still feel the focus of customer care and... More

Breakfast was lovely and cooked... More

I have stayed at The Crown a few times while visiting my office in Sudbury.The room rates are very competitive for this area. The rooms are clean and well presented, though some are probably due some updating. On all occasions I have stayed I have managed a good nights sleep (which is rare for me). The food is great! The...

We were in Long Melford on Father's Day and looking for a place to eat. Wandered into the Crown Hotel and had a great meal. The steak and ale pie had been made that morning and was delicious! Very friendly, nice people.
