Nothing too much trouble. Clean, comfortable rooms with fresh milk for tea!not long life. Very good breakfasts and the evening meals were excellent. A beautiful place to visit. A tranquil, calm island with lots of history and great views

If you want a warm welcome and great food and drinks served by friendly staff then this is the place for you. All at very reasonable prices. The hotel is also very pleasant. If you are visiting the Island then this the Number 1 choice.

Just spent a perfect night on Holy Island at the Crown and Anchor. The pub is cosy and very welcoming with open fires. The staff were excellent: friendly, informal and very helpful. The evening meal was excellent fare and the full breakfast in the morning was faultless. The room was cosy and comfortable with views of the priory and coast.... More

Holy Island is awesome and this pub is in the perfect location. Lovely warm welcome, open fire, small country friendly bar facilities. Dinner menu was limited but fresh and the locals eat here too. We had a double and a family room and both had ensuite. Rooms were warm and beds comfortable with amazing views from the pretty window seats.... More

Great friendly pub. In winter with a warm coal fire. In summer with a lovely beer garden where you can sit and enjoy the view. Good beers and snacks. Best rib-eye steak ever. Also a good place if you have children. Definitely worth a visit when you are on Holy Island.

Lovely old world pub with fantastic views. We stayed one night in the family room which is a good size and fits perfectly 2 adults and 2 small kids. The bathroom definitely needs an upgrade but does the job. Nice touches include fresh milk to go with the drinks and bottles of upmarket sparkling mineral water. I guess you come... More

Warm welcome, clean and comfortable room overlooking the ruined monastery buildings, good choice of ales. Excellent food, most of which seems to be locally sourced, from a small but well-chosen menu. We had scallops and chorizo to start and a very good home made beef pie, which was delicious. Good cooked breakfast with lovely array of fruit, juices etc as... More

After a longer than usual journey, including waiting for 10 minutes at the level crossing! I never new the East Coast mainline had so many trains at that time of night, what a welcome sight the crown and anchor was. Once we were there the welcome from the staff couldn't have been better. We were in the family room which... More
