My colleagues and I stayed overnight in the sister hotel, The Swan, but decided to have dinner at the Crown. We were not disappointed! The range of food was excellent, the wine list good and well priced, and the service friendly and efficient. The ambience of the restaurant was also warm and welcoming - not to be missed when visiting... More

We stayed here in the family room with two kids aged 7 & 9 and the hotel was perfect. We were only staying for two nights for a wedding but everything about the hotel was exactly as you'd expect for a small pub/hotel in Southwold

Day five of our cycling tour of East Anglia. Today we are in Southwold (Aug 18th). We know very little about Southwold other than it's the home of Adnam's brewery and The Crown is something of a flagship for them. We were struck by how attractive this town looks in the late afternoon sun. The Crown is a grand Georgian... More

We didn't pre book this hotel but arrived in Southwold, looking for accommodation for the night. It turns out we were very lucky as they had a room available, although it hadn't been cleaned as the previous occupants had not long left. We were shown the room and accepted straight away, it was really lovely, modern and once cleaned spotless.... More

The whole family (eleven including 4 under fives) recently stayed for a long weekend and the facilities were outstanding. Rooms immaculate and large - especially for those with the children - service perfect and the food excellent. The complete 5 star treatment - and I recommend this facility for those who want to stay, those who want to eat or... More

Food was ok to good. But the menu seemed more limited. No single person served the table. We had a 20 minute wait for drinks and pudding menus (despite 4 empty glasses) - not acceptable. Lots of staff on but manger hadn't assigned anyone an area to look after or specific tables. This is very poor given the cost of... More

Myself and my family stayed here for one night. The rooms were very comfortable and a good size for myself and my two sisters. My Mum and Dad had another really nice, large room. The stereo in our room had great sound. The wi-fi was very reliable and well used. The food was outstanding. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.... More

Had room 11 which was very well decorated with a very comfortable bed and super bathroom which included a bath and shower plus two sinks! Two comfortable chairs for sitting in and all additional extras you could wish for including tea and coffee and waffle robes. Breakfast was excellent with as much or as little you needed from a very... More

Arrived at The Crown and was surprised to have to find a member of the bar staff to check us in. He then didn't know where our room was !!! After doing a little exploration we found our room tucked away along corridors and stair cases. Looked like it was a fairly recently refurbished room and we were very happy... More
