We booked a room at the Rose and Crown as a stopover on our way to Scotland. It was slightly more expensive than others in the area but the reviews were great and we were celebrating our wedding anniversary so we booked. The location is beautiful and very quiet. Check in was quick and easy and the room was warm... More

Just a one night stay on the way to Scotland - but so good we will have to return for longer stay. Rooms in courtyard were excellent and parking easy but the real highlight was the "Bar meal" we had in the evening. A chef who understands flavour and balance and produces exceptional courses leading to the best deserts we... More

My wife and I stayed here for a short break, Sunday through to Wednesday. We've stayed several times, and we consider it our bolt hole. The village is picture perfect, quiet, lovely walks and nice people. The rose and crown remains one of our favourite hotels. It's understated, but does great service, great food (most locally sourced), wonderfully comfortable rooms... More

We were returning to Rose & Crown after several previous visits and found that the change of ownership has not detracted from its appeal. On arrival we were welcomed and escorted to our room. We had asked for room 10 which we had used before. It's a comfortable, well equipped room on the first floor facing the front - both... More

A lovely location set in a quiet village - rooms available in both the main hotel and the courtyard - we chose a courtyard room that was very well equipped - even down to a ironing board and iron. The staff were charming and helpful. The food was good and the atmosphere in both the dining room very relaxing. A... More

A lovely coaching inn in spectacular Teesdale. Pleasant small room at the back of the hotel although the bed wasn't terribly comfortable. The food was hearty, well cooked and with pleanty of choice. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the service excellent. Romaldkirk is a wonderfully unspoilt village, our only regret was that we didn't have time to... More

Fantastic pub / hotel in a beautiful spot. It was a welcome pit-stop following a long journey from East Sussex. Lovely rooms, tastefully decorated and furnished. Great pub / bar atmosphere with good food.

Having stayed at this beautiful little country pub hotel for a long weekend a year or two ago, my wife and I went out of our way on a journey further south to stay once again for a night. The hotel has changed hands since our last stay, but remains charming as ever, with charming and comfortable rooms (we like... More

The hotel is all you would expect of an old coaching inn: plenty of polished brass and oak paneling in the public areas. The rooms, however, are very much up-to-date, well-appointed and very comfortable. One could not wish for more friendly, attentive and obliging staff. There is a good atmosphere in the bar and excellent food in the dining room.

We recently stayed at the Rose and Crown with good friends; this stay was a belated birthday treat from them to my wife. Setting: a perfect country retreat set in the picturesque village of Romaldskirk - the R&C is located in the centre of the village and just oozes that traditional feel. Ambiance: from the moment you step through the... More
