I would normally consider £145 for one night far too expensive for a hotel but my partner and I decided to splash out for a bank holiday weekend treat. It was definitely worth the money. The room was beautiful - a mezzanine, with giant upstairs bathroom and a separate dressing / sitting room. The claw footed bath was a lovely... More

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I think you had room 1 which is one of my favourites. Our team should have offered you a dinner reservation at our sister hotel - I hope that happened! We look forward to welcoming you back. More

I spent 2 nights at the Crown Inn in "old Amersham" and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is an old coaching inn with creaky and even wooden floors, the rooms are nicely decorated and the bathrooms (refreshingly - excuse the pun) have showers that provide hot water and at a decent pressure! The staff were friendly and helpful and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a romantic weekend. We paid £145 and although the room was comfortable the TV didn't work, and when we called reception to help they said their maintenance guy doesn't work at the weekend and they will send someone up. We waited over an hour and just left the room and left the TV... More

This is a very disappointing review. I will be discussing this with the team here as it is mainly human/service failings that are highlighted. I would be grateful if you would contact me at peter.stlawrence@thecrownamersham.com More

We spent a wonderful night here - the weather was gorgeous and we walked in the surrounding hills. Our beautiful room in the courtyard was beautifully decorated and had everything you could possibly want, including free snacks and ground coffee. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The only, very minor gripes, and only because the hotel is very pricey, was that... More

Thank you for your detailed review, which will be shared with the team here. Kitchen extract fans are a painful necessity in hotels and particularly problematic in listed buildings, where they have to be tucked into the fabric of the building, rather than sent skywards. I am glad you liked the Courtyard rooms - we think they are very special.... More

We made a weekend trip out of London to Amersham which is like being in the Cotswolds yet it is just outside the M25 and on the tube! Amersham is an ancient town full of old inns and pubs. We chose The Crown to spend the weekend and were thrilled with the really ancient feel to the place but with... More

Popped along here for a business coffee at 10.30am today. There were a few other people there having similar sorts of meetings too, tables outside too. Excellent space in the lounge (near bar area), great friendly service with a smile, just fantastic. Parking also round the back, which was super helpful too (registration plate must be given at reception).

We visited for afternoon tea and had several guests with special dietary requirements including dairy and soya free and a nut allergy. The kitchen had prior warning but none the less there was no issue over providing appropriately for 8 of us and a child. The staff were all very helpful, pleasant and cheerful. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were... More

I am sorry that you were disturbed so much by another guest. As you say it is not always in our control. Did you happen to call our night porter so he could speak to the other guest? Clearly our receptionist should have reacted better. I will be raising this at our weekly operations meeting. More

We were with family from abroad and thought that The Crown Inn would be a safe bet for lunch. On arrival the staff were very firiendly and helpful and remained so throughout our meal.

Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback, disappointing as it is. We will be updating our menu shortly but clearly we need to keep a focus on consistency and temperature. Please let me know if you are passing through Amersham again as I would welcome the chance to demonstrate this was an unusual experience. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Crown in Old Amersham, situated at the end of the Metropolitan Line and 40 minutes from London, is the second in a family of modern day coaching inns recently renovated by the designer Ilse Crawford (other works include Babington House). The old timber building is situated in the centre of the historic market town, attracting locals, restaurant guests and night time travelers. The inn’s interior is made up of rural materials – from Ercol chairs made in High Wycombe to traditional plaster made from lime and horsehair. The ‘back room’ with its inglenook fire and view of the cobbled courtyard is perfect for private gatherings and feasting of up to 40, while the bar and restaurant area is the communal heartbeat of the inn. The kitchen serves seasonally inspired, locally sourced food with in-between times satisfied with home baked cheese scones and fruit cake with Cashel Blue while the main menus changes daily. ... more   less
