Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights (Friday 26th and Saturday 27th). It was £100 for 2 nights B&B. The room was nice, shame it was a shared bathroom but it wasn't a massive issue. The one issue was the fact it's a drinking pub and from mid to to late afternoon until 1:00am it was extremely busy... More

Stayed two nights for my birthday. Great location 10 minute walk from town. Lovely rooms and breakfast! Staff extremely helpful. Rooms are noisy until 1am as they are above a pub. Worth noting this before booking.

My sister in law and a friend had come over from Denmark, they (foolishly) booked the accommodation before speaking to us and booked in here, from the outset I had my reservations but we took them there and they checked in. On arriving there was not really a very warm welcome and no real indication of how to check in.... More

As soon as you walk into the The Old Crown you know the place has a great history, the original Tudor exterior along with what must be a very old well! The staff are very friendly and they have lots of real ale on offer and the food menu is superb, I went for the Gnocchi and was very pleasantly... More

I booked the Crown slightly against my better judgment, given some of the negative reviews. Somehow I managed to book the travel lodge as well so I was faced with a straight choice of which to cancel...and I'm so glad I cancelled the travel lodge. The crown was not only perfect for a festival overnighter at the custard factory (we... More

Our host, Keiran, greeted us on arrival and showed us to our room. The wow factors just kept coming. From the masses of period features to the reveal of our room with a full fourposter bed and three seater sofa, a full corner bayh which filled in about two minutes combining luxury with convinience. The pub and outside bar areas... More

Didn't really take much notice at time of booking - the priorities being price and distance from venue of gig we were going to. so it was a really pleasant surprise to walk into a beautiful old building and even better to be shown to our huge room with four poster! this is not the place if you want pristine...

My wife and I had booked the Old Crown for a stay on Sat 21/03. Unfortunately it was double booked. So Ciaran arranged for us to have a meal and drinks on the house, whilst he organised a replacement hotel to stay. He also returned our payment, paid for the replacement hotel and gave us the taxi fare from the... More
