My wife and I stayed here in the summer a few years ago and were looking for somewhere for new years eve this year. By chance as we were thinking an email from the crown popped up. We remembered the lovely food and warm welcome from last time so booked up. The place is still as good as it was.... More

After a very busy time recently, my wife and I were fortunate enough to be offered dinner, bed and breakfast at any hotel of our choice. Being busy people, we did not have time to travel far so after looking at various reviews, chose The Crown Hotel. We had Room 8 at the top front of the hotel which was... More

We have stayed at The Crown several times as part of a shooting party as it is a good central location and they have a lovely casual pub/restaurant in addition to a more formal dining room for breakfast and dinner. The owners and staff are wonderful and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.... More

Thank you for your lovely comments. As you know we accommodate many shooting parties over the winter months, which keeps our hotel busy over what would be a traditionally quieter period. This enables us to maintain our great team of staff, which gives us consistency in service and food. It's always nice when we get the same parties returning each... More

There are two hotels in this picturesque village in the heart of beautiful Exmoor, and this is the best - although the other, the White Horse, boasts a bar that stocks hundreds of malt whiskies. I advise walking the 150 yards from the Crown to the White Horse, trying 4 or 5 whiskies and walking back again to the Crown... More

Thank you for your review and lovely comments. Our hotel is a 17th Century Coaching Inn and as you say has lots of charm and character which all adds to the friendly atmosphere here at the Crown.

On a very wet lunchtime came across this place by accident. Bar staff very friendly and welcoming. Good selection of gin and whiskey and the food was heavenly and the desserts were to die for! Can honestly say it was the best meal I have ever eaten.

We chose this hotel for our three night stay on Exmoor because it positively welcomes dogs. The staff were very friendly and the food in the bar and dining room was excellent. They make specific efforts to cater for those of us who can't eat gluten or dairy, which was very much appreciated. Wi-fi was available and reached up to... More

On arrival ( like other guests) there was no one to check us in, we rang the bell but felt ignored as I could hear that someone was just through the door beyond the reception desk but was ignoring us.

Thank you for comments and sorry your stay with us wasn't to your full satisfaction. We are always striving to improve and will take all your comments into consideration.
