My husband and I come from Swindon, having left 15 years ago, so we occasionally visit. This visit was mainly for an 18th birthday meal at The Crown on a Saturday night. So we booked for Friday and Saturday night for convenience. The pub is very dated as was the room and a bit surprising as this is an Arkells... More

Used to be one of our favorite places to dine on a sat. Now, half the tables are reserved for the evening even if you get there early afternoon ! Had to settle for a wobbly table, no others available ! We both ordered steak and ale pie which we have enjoyed before. Today's offering, after a long wait ,... More

A little disappointed by this pub with rooms. Our initial welcome was great as was breakfast thw first morning. However it seems that Saturday night bar person was having a bad night and was unwelcoming, this continued at Sunday morning breakfast with poor service and a bad attitude from the waitress. Sunday night improved fortunately. The rooms are basic and... More

Nice building, reasonably presented. Only real criticisms is that breakfast did not start until 8am on a Saturday and the bar staff were vacuuming during breakfast. Otherwise a nice room and a comfortable stay and good food

We stayed here just this week, 3 adults in two rooms. Our room was straight off the car park, and our other guest was staying upstairs. The rooms were fairly basic, but clean, and serviced. Though the walls are quite thin, (we were woken by someone coughing and throwing up at about 3am). Breakfast was really nice, and we really... More

Stayed here on a Friday night. It was very popular with the locals coming in for meals. Reception was unmanned, had to find receptionist working behind a busy bar. The room was adequate but being on the ground floor lacked privacy as customers at benches were immediately outside window. Breakfast was fine but marred by vacuuming being carried out whilst...

The hotel looks quite nice from the outside but that is about it. Considering it wasn't that expensive I was not expecting any luxury BUT the stairs were very dirty. It was very smelly inside the hotel and the room was tiny. Most importantly the bed mattress was SOOO uncomfortable, old and the springs in the mattress were hurting me... More

by all the positive reviews. Most of the staff were more interested in popping out for a fag than anything serving customers. The bar maid just about managed to stay on the polite side of surly and the food was awful. Perhaps we chose a bad night to go in. When the waitress asked about my meal (I had left... More

We visited as part of a group of 10 for lunch. The room is rather small but adequate, there is quite a varied menu to cater for most tastes plus the daily specials. I chose a Blue cheese macaroni bake with a portion of chips, this was very nice. The service was not the speediest but the food was worth... More
