The Crown is a fine old inn once at the heart of the stage coach service from London to Edinburgh. Rest assured that the town has been bypassed twice so there is no through traffic now. The Crown has been modernised and updated and has a pool and a secure car park under pass code control. The small town of Boroughbridge is almost untouched by national chains and brands and there is a full range of local shops.
We chose a particularly quiet week, so there were relatively few people staying and the rates were good. However the conference rooms were busy. The location near the A1(M) makes this a good place for a conference.
The pool is excellent, about 20 metres by 10 so there is room for 4 to swim abreast. The Gym is busy between 4 to 6 pm with local members but at many times the Leisure Club is quiet.
There are 2 lounges downstairs as well as 2 bars.
Any problems we had were dealt with speedily.
We ate in the hotel twice, this was fine. We also tried local pubs, the Crown at Roecliffe was good and the Olde Punchbowl at Marton cum Grafton was OK. Both had a good pub atmosphere.
Away from the hotel we found plenty of places to visit within 15 miles such Fountains Abbey, Pately Bridge, Brimham Rocks and the Royal Horticultural Society Gardens at Harlow Carr. There are several horse race courses within easy distance. Our big trip out was to Whitby which was well worth it.
