“dog friendly, very pleasent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2008

i found the crown a very relaxed friendly atmosphere to stay in with loads of character and original features. the staff were friendly and accomodating, nothing was too much trouble for them. we only went for one night, but ended staying for three nights as it was such a nice hotel and town to stay in. i would advise anyone to stay here. dogs are extremely welcome and quite often have the cutest little dog called brutus to keep you entertained in the bar area with the ever so nice locals. Adam the manager deals with any of your requirements.

Stayed here for (thank god) only one night. Generally dirty, grimey place. Do not believe the photos on their website! Rooms shabby and old fashioned. Grotty furniture, not like the nice 4 poster in their photos. Bathrooms also shabby and one room's was the size of an aeroplane toilet. Kitchen dirty and cutlery etc in dining room was also dirty and tables hadn't even been cleaned. Orange juice was fizzy as it was so past it's sell by date. Cooked breakfast cold. Still recovering from the coffee.

Dirty socks in corridor as well as random other objects. I wouldn't be surprised however if there were no cockroaches there as even though they can apparently survive a nuclear holocaust they had probably moved out of the Crown a long time ago.

This is not just my view - spoke to other guests the next day and one person's comment simply was 'don't touch the walls'.

You have been warned.
