The building was beautiful; very modern with a nod to old features. Hosts couldn't do more for you and to top the one night's stay off, a beautifully cooked breakfast! Very relaxed feel and somewhere I would definitely go back. Thank you.

Hosts were delightful. This property has been beautifully renovated and respectfully modernized. Breakfast was lovely and set us up for day, we didn't get a chance to sit and eat again until 10pm! That's how well our breakfast sustained us!! Thanks

A pretty, old, classical building, with an attractive frontage onto a fairly busy A road, and a lovely courtyard to the rear. The overall feel is that the (relatively new) owners have already spent a fortune financially and emotionally on the place, and are lovely people. Our bedroom was very smart, and lacked a few basic toiletries, and staples, e.g.... More

Dear The RoliingMcStones, I am so sorry you didn't rate your stay as much as I would have liked. We don't put bottled water in the rooms because the tap water is perfectly fine to drink, however I will take you other suggestions on board. When we refurbished the building we wanted the interior to be a perfect mix between... More

The main areas of this wonderful building have been treated with a modern twist which has taken nothing away from the unique14th century building. The evening meal though very good was maybe a little too gastronomic in style. Breakfast though had a wonderful choice of hot and cold food and as the dining area overlooks the court yard it is...

The atmosphere of this hotel is kind of charming. The couple owners were nice. Excellent breakfast. Room size might be rather small but manageable. However, the shower room is tiny which is the only thing I do not like about this hotel. Otherwise, it is a fine place to stop over.

Dear KwinAun Thank you for your kind review. I am sorry that the bathroom was not big enough for you. The room you stayed in is one of the Basic room which we haven't had the chance to refurbish yet, which does reflect in the room rate. Hopefully we will be able to do the work next January. Glad you... More

The Shaven Crown was our first stop in our UK adventure and we were very pleased with our choice. A wonderfully historical & unique property. The hotel has a great mixed of old & new and the hosts are host in what is on offer. The room was spacious & comfortable and had a great view of the courtyard. The... More

Have just returned from a one night stay at the Shaven Crown. The owners have done an amazing job restoring this historic building to a very high standard. The attention to detail is second to none and they do not appear to have scrimped anywhere. We stayed in the Pump Room which was very sizeable and beautifully decorated. The pillows... More

Couple in our 20s who stayed in January 2015 (only just got round to writing the review). Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone; we stayed in a 'basic room' which was plentiful in size and had a big comfy bed. Enjoyed some drinks on our first night in the converted monastery which had a hugely authentic and cosy feel... More
