Stayed for one night. Wasn't my first choice, but when my original hotel was fully booked, stayed here instead. Very pleasantly surprised. Nice staff, reasonably priced, clean and relatively comfortable. Room a bit cramped, so wouldn't recommend for a long stay; but, for one or two nights, it's fine. A bit rural, but good walking trails in the area.

Pleasant hotel, nice room, good powerful shower. Room was in the block across the courtyard. It was up a spiral staircase, which was fine for us but if your mobility isn't great you could check that you don't have to negotiate that. Quiet at night. Staff very helpful and human. Food fine, maybe a little overpriced for what it was,... More

Near to Cambridge 10 minutes by train, station nearby. Lovely hotel, great food, nice ambience, helpful friendly staff. Set in a lovely quiet village. We stayed in the main building, grounds beautifully kept. We are already planning our next visit.

We are very lucky at The Crown House, being both tucked away in a pretty village and yet so well placed, to be, as you say convenient for the train to Cambridge or London. We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay with us More

We stayed in the courtyard across from the main hotel. The room was clean and nicely decorated.. Liked the exterior of the hotel – very pretty. Good value stay. The staff were very friendly. If we are in the area again, we would stay here. Would recommend this hotel.

First I would like to say after reading the reviews before staying at this Hotel on arriving I wondered if it was the same place.

I was taking part in a B&B television reality TV programme, and was put up at The Crown House between reviewing competitors' guest houses. Well I thought it beat the lot! It is privately run, the rooms and food are of the highest quality, and the service first rate. When I found out all of this cost less than £100... More

Friendly people and atmosphere. We found our arrival very welcoming and the room very nice indeed - clean and very comfortable.
