The Crown hotel is a very welcoming place, with beautifully appointed bedrooms, and a wide ranging and well cooked menu. All members of staff were attentive and breakfast was excellent. Rooms were individual and were well equipped with free wifi throughout the premises

The best inn we have stayed at, the food fantastic, staff warm and friendly, well kept beers. The room large and clean. A welcoming roaring log fire in the bar completed the experience.Mathew and Darren are doing a great job!!

Stayed one night while on business. We had a wonder room on the roadside but little noise. Dinner and breakfast could not be faulted. Beer excellent. All the staff should be highly commended. The brewery should be aware how good the staff are. Very reasonable prices. What a gem. Will be staying again, will travel some distance to stay there.

I have tried to point this out to Tripadvisor before but this hotel is not in Sturminster Newton. It is in the large village of Marnhull between Sturminster Newton and Gillingham and a car is needed if you wish to visit Sturminster Newton as it would be a very long walk indeed ! We went here for dinner and the... More

Four of us (2 couples) stayed here for the Dorset Steam fair! We can not fault the place!! The staff are really friendly and very efficient, the evening meals and breakfasts are first class, the rooms are very well thought out and are spotlessly clean. There is ample safe parking nearby. We would definitely return here and highly recommend this... More

We were on a stopover on the way down to the West Country. Our suite was large, well maintained and well furnished, the food and drink in the pub was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was superb and lasted us all the next day to finish our journey.

We booked relatively last minute and got a great deal. We arrived about 5 pm and were shown to our rooms. I was immediately impressed with the size and high standard of the room and the lovely bathroom. I immediately noticed the noise from the road which was still noticeable even when the window and secondary double glazing were closed.... More
