We had another great meal in the restaurant this evening. A lovely atmosphere in the refurbished restaurant on the Crown and Thistle. A wide range of dishes, with generous portions, backed with very helpful and polite service. The food was delicious. A great selection of real ales. This place keeps earning a return visit from me, and would also recommend... More

we stayed 3 nights in room 16 which on the face of it was a very nice room, but VERY DARK. So much so that we asked reception for another light/lamp as we couldn't see inside the wardrobe; we just had to feel our way around. We had one balck lampshade and one beige eiher side of the bed both... More

Stopped overnight here and had a meal for famil and friends. All in all I couldn't fault the service, food, and quality/cleanliness of the room. The reception staff, manager and the person who dealt with everything over the phone could have not been more helpful. At the end of the evening I heard nothing but compliments from the family &...

Came here for a business dinner and to stay for one night. I had room 1. This was the darkest room have had anywhere. So dark that even in the morning there was not enough light to see to pack and I was very careful to try to keep my things together so that would not miss packing anything. I... More

One night stay with my daughter and her two friends - teenagers. They had a room for 3 and I had a lovely room to myself. Beautiful decor and very comfy. Very small change I'd make to my room would be the windows opening. Not sure why they didn't! Food was great and all the staff were friendly and welcoming.

This hotel makes much of its recent refit but they should sack the person who designed the rooms - obviously the modern fashion is to allow people to stumble round in almost total darkness and if they were not depressed when they arrived they will be by the end of their stay. After a very warm night (due to the... More

The hotel is an absolute gem with really comfortable well appointed rooms that are a little quirky. The hotel is in a great location and easy to walk out from. I stayed with my husband and 2 children (7&11) and the room was large enough for two put up beds and still loads of room. The staff throughout the hotel... More

A small jug of fresh milk in the in-room fridge. Not expensive or difficult to provide but how many hotels do? Very few but, for me, it makes all the difference to a cup of tea being as good as it can be or tasting awful thanks to the ubiquitous UHT so often provided. It was evidence that this hotel... More

Hi SusanfromSouthsea, It’s so wonderful to hear that you appreciated the milk jug – we could not agree more with you that a good cup of tea in the morning is simply not the same without it! Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, it’s so motivating to hear that the little things are being appreciated. I’m sorry... More

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at The Crown & Thistle, booked through Secret Escapes. We got a very good deal, which included 2 nights bed and breakfast, dinner on the Friday evening, and a bottle of wine if you ate there Saturday too. The room was lovely, a good sized bedroom with a comfortable bed, and an... More
