We have just returned from a short break in the Crown House Hotel, we had a lovely four poster bedroom, the food was excellent but don't expect to eat an evening meal after the afternoon cream tea, there just won't be room. The evening dinner the next day was excellent. Above all the whole atmosphere was really relaxing and the... More

The Crown House Hotel dates back to early Tudor times. There are 18 rooms in total, with some in the older main building of the hotel but we were in a modern annex just across the gravel courtyard (room 6). All the rooms are en-suite with Freeview TVs, coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi in the bedrooms and hotel lounge/restaurant.... More

It was also incredible value for money and were able to have a fantastic evening which fell within our budget! Tina and her team listened... More

I found this hotel on google maps as I needed somewhere south of Cambridge. The hotel was perfect for what I needed and the service was first class. Room 18 was amazing. Previous comments had said the food/wine was a bit on the pricey side but not for me. I would certainly go back. The wifi was a bit ropey... More

We recently stayed at the Crown House whilst guests at a wedding. This is an old quirky hotel with plenty of character.....don't be surprised by the creaking floor boards and uneven floors. We had room number 10 with a 4 poster bed. The bed was comfortable, the room was a very good size as was the bathroom. There were tea... More

The staff make this hotel. They are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The evening dinner was outstanding and made to order - Remember to leave room for desert! Breakfast was good too. The rooms are comfortable and there is off-street parking. Make sure you read the history of this early coaching inn on the original London to... More

I attended a wedding at the Crown House in December 2014, and stayed the night before and the night of the wedding. The hotel is great, there is a lot of history and character about the place, interesting artwork on the walls, a cosy stove in the bar, and lovely interiors. We stayed in a four poster room which was... More

I stay at the Crown fairly frequently as my Company is near there. All I can say is that the place is always warm and relaxing, the staff are always pleased to see you, the food is fairly priced and always good. Breakfast is excellent whether it be a full English (never greasy) or just poached eggs. I always feel... More

Me and my fiancee have stayed at the Crown House more than a dozen times since discovering Flying Legends in 2011, and we never tire of the place. The dinner menu can be limited, I'm a fussy eater, but it's always enjoyable. The wine is obviously more expensive than the supermarket, but never extortionately so; and there's alway a good...
