We were pleasantly surprised! The quality of the food and presentation was good and service was friendly. Run by South African manager and chef. Will definitely go around on a sunny weekend and try their BBQ.

We had two nights at the Crown Inn as part of a Secret Escapes break. The food was amazing, there was a good choice and this was coupled with friendly, attentive staff. The rooms are lovely, the bed was comfortable and we were able to catch the sun in the afternoon on our own little patio which was an added... More

We had two nights at The Crown on a terrific deal through Secret Escapes. A lovely find. Rooms beautifully decorated with great en suite. The bed comfortable and linen fresh and crisp. Breakfast top notch and the evening meals divine. Excellent wine list. Best steak I've had in a long while. But what tops everything is the staff. Friendly, attentive... More

What value for money, the bill for the evening meals was over £60 each night for two people if you where paying separate, so to include in the room price is unbelievable.The food if excellent, it's seems a very busy place to eat with the locals so...

My husband does not enthuse, so it is praise indeed that he announced that we would "Do this again'. The cabin type room is of a good standard with a comfortable bed, hot shower, large tv, free wifi. Dinner was from an extensive menu that included several South African dishes. I had a hot smoked salmon starter. Husband's boneless ribs... More

All in all this was a very pleasant place to stay! This is an ideal place for a weekend away from it all, a relaxed feel and the rooms are like little cabins which gives it a nice cosy feel. They are decorated to a high standard and with only a couple of little criticisms they were excellent. The fact... More

Booked through Groupon....a nights stay, 3 course dinner and breakfast! We arrived Sunday l/t not expecting to eat, but decided to have a light lunch! The place was very busy, so we sat outside! I had the salad bar which at £13.50 was expensive...it looked item for item, like Sainsburys salad bar, not too much choice either! The room was... More
