Stayed here in a single room for one night attended a school reunion. Room was small but not surprising as a single. What did annoy me was that they had left a baby cot in the room Which I had to drag out and leave in the hall late at night. Also felt somewhat neglected at breakfast as first they... More

A beautiful setting with classic gardens with lovely seating areas very close to the river where otters can be seen playing. Plenty of umbrellas when the weather is hot outside. Inside the hotel the decor is classic Art Deco. Spacious, cool and has a contemporary feel. The lunchtime menu is just enough without causing you to sit and feel like... More

We stayed in the family suite and it was huge, 2 rooms with interconnecting door, 1 double and 1 twin bedded room, 1 bathroom, and masses of space. If you look closely you can see bits need updating or finessing but all in all quite beautiful. The room being on the main road through blandford and the windows needing to... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your uncomfortable beds. We are currently part way through a program replacing all our mattresses with Sealy Pillow Honister Mattresses - these are the same matresses that are used in the White House and are known for being incredibly comfortable thanks to the extra pillow top on the mattress...

Having stayed in the Crown on a regular basis over several years I had become used to a high level of service and a feeling of being valued as a customer. However, on my current visit I was informed that drinks would not be served after 11 pm. On querying this the manager explained that the owning brewery thought we,... More

If you want a fantastic lunch that is not expensive, then The Crown is great...especially the veggie burgers which is just fantastic. But if you are a lover of the classic creamy Italian pudding panna cotta, then don't order The Crown's version of this divine pudding. If it's on the menu, then I always have it so have a fair...

Down in deepest Dorset looking for a place to stay we happened upon the little Gem of a place. Regrettably it was almost midnight when we arrived so couldn't appreciate what a wonderful place the Crown was. The night porter was very helpful, the rooms clean with fresh bedding and all you would expect. We slept like logs on very... More
