The crown seems to be trying to compete rather than complement its sister hotel The swan. This place is basically a high street pub with rooms at top end prices. Yes the rooms are okay. We had a large superior room with queen size bed. The bathroom was okay but only had a shower over the bath. Maybe because it... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. I must apologise on behalf of all our staff if you felt we were “cruising” because it was a quiet period for us, I can assure you we give every guest the same excellent level of service no matter how busy or quiet we are. I will... More

My partner booked a night here as a surprise for my birthday. We had room 12 on the second floor at the front of the hotel. It was lovely - spacious, spotlessly clean with everything you could ask for. Comfortable king size bed and a large bathroom with a fantastic power shower over the bath. Enjoyed a drink in the...

We stayed fro one night and had dinner in the restaurant. Very nice, comfortable modern room on the second floor at the back. Quiet and a nice view of the lighthouse. Had a pre-dinner drink in the cosy back bar (feels almost like a 'private' bar) and a very good dinner at the restaurant (after-which we took a much need... More

Although we live on the other side of England, my wife and I always return to Southwold for Christmas. It is a place we have been visiting for over 30 years, and we just love it. We have, in the past, rented a house overlooking the sea for the whole week, and just gone to the Crown for Christmas Day... More

Southwold is a town with a lot of character and not least because it is Adnams country! The Crown fits in well and in part is very good; for instance breakfast and the staff. On the negative side, the bar is very small and then at 0630 on both the Friday and Saturday we stayed there was a great deal... More

The bed was comfy and the overall quality and usability of the room great. Service was great throughout. The staff were friendly and attentive. The evening meal and breakfast was... More

We have eaten in this restaurant many many times, and I agree with some reviews in that it can be a bit hit and miss, however I have experienced many more hits than misses! Staff always attentive, food well priced therefore recieve what I expect for the price, comfortable atmosphere for a casual lunch or supper (we only choose to... More

We stayed at the Crown for a one night break as part of a trip along the Suffolk coast. We arrived on a Friday lunchtime. The car park at the rear is relatively small but most of the spaces available are under cover and once the lunchtime trade had ceased there was ample parking. Reception is on the first floor...

We visited the Crown for lunch and had a very good meal. All four of us chose the roast loin of pork which was on the Specials list. It was absolutely delicious with lovely crispy crackling and delicious vegetables. The meat was tender and succulent - we could not fault it. Two of us chose a dessert which were both... More

Lovely Sunday lunch (Pork with all the trimmings) and Adnans Mosaic....bliss. Couldn't fault the service that was quietly efficient. Good location on the High St and bookings advisable for school holidays and weekend
