The Rose and Crown in Wisbech is an old coaching house dating back 400 years. I'm the town centre on a one way road, so a bit tricky to get to. Smoke parking at the reR of the Hotel through the red arch on the main road. My room was ok though very hot, massive shower in the bathroom but... More

Stayed here for one night whilst walking in the area. The hotel is well located on the Market Place and has stacks of character with a fascinating central staircase. The room was compact but clean and tidy at the rear of the premises.

Ate with friends, the first time we have had dinner there for some time - the food was all very good, portions appropriate e.g. not huge, the staff were friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. The only small downside is no real ale, which is a shame.

Just back from a day at the Rose and Crown where I used their meeting room for business purposes. I didn't stay this time but I felt moved to write this review as the staff there are just great. So helpful, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Indeed, they seem able to cater for your needs before even being... More

We would like to thank The Rose and Crown Hotel for hosting our wonderful wedding reception. Anne was the best wedding planner and very helpful. We are very fond of this hotel and it was the perfect place to have our reception. All our guests enjoyed the day and their stay. The food was outstanding and delicious. The whole event... More

Stayed 2 nights. Room tidy, clean and comfortable. Some thicker curtains would have been a bonus, as the ones in my room didn't fully block out the light. Didn't drink in the hotel, as there was no real ale available. Hotel is right in the town square, with food and drink in easy walking distance. (There's not a huge choice... More

The hotel was booked for me as I was in the area on a business trip. Although finding was an adventure (damn you Google maps), I was in awe of the building itself. Preserved perfectly and not looking tired or run down at all, in fact it looked as though it was new and been built to look over 400... More

Well, first big problem no lift! and no help to carry our bags up the challenging crooked staircase. A lift would have made life easier especially as bedrooms are only accessible via stairs, a strange situation these days. The Windows were very loose in their frames causing the curtains to move dramatically due to the windy weather. I had hoped... More

Friendly staff who are very quick off the mark, and didn't leave us hanging for attention. Beautiful room and packed with old world charm. Only stayed one night and arrived late, so no meal, although breakfast the next morning was excellent. We will be back

A very old and characterful building in the centre of Wisbech. We stayed on a Saturday night which meant that there was parking available. Nice reception and friendly welcome. Good choice of food for evening meal however the quality wasn't there which left us disappointed. There was no-one else in the restaurant and very few in the bar next door... More

Thank you for posting your comments. All feedback is very much appreciated. We have addressed the issue of the street cleaners with the Council and we are awaiting their response. The 'special offer' you were on, was quite an old offer and you must appreciate that staff are only carrying out their job diligently in checking the details of every... More
