4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a comfortable and spacious room for a 2 night stay (though only a shower, not a bath) and all in excellent working order having been recently refurbished. Very good food in the restaurant, though pre-dinner the bar was noisy and the quieter lounge was full so we sat outside which was scenic but a little chilly. Lovely position... More

Comfi and smart rooms tastefully decorated with some nice touches.the breakfast is first class with attentive staff who made us feel very welcome.

My room was excellent, one of the recently refurbished I was told, the only disappointment being the lack of a dedicated shower. There was a hand shower over the bath, which I found difficult to achieve the desired temperature and, despite the glass screen, it was impossible to prevent a substantial amount of water going in the floor. I got... More

We visited The Crown on a busy Friday night and had booked a table in advance - which I would recommend as its in a great location with lots of passing trade. The bar / restaurant has recently had a makeover and it has been done really sympathetically - it's really welcoming. There is a good selection of dishes on... More

If, like me you normally skip reviews that appear full of bile, sorry... But do read on. We popped in for a bite to eat and a coffee. Around 8pm. Service at the bar was woeful. Not being busy, I would expect bar staff to spot a customer and get on with it. Nope, let's leave him there whilst chatting... More

Booked the Crown as they were dog friendly, and that was no mistake - we were made to feel more welcome here than at any hotel I've ever been to. The staff even came out to greet the dog which made sure he wasn't stressed! The food was excellent for both dinner and breakfast, the room (family) was stylish and... More

We had a short stop for dinner in Blandford, and The Crown Hotel looked like the perfect place. We sat at a table outside, but nobody came to take our order. We discovered you have to go inside and take your own cold drinks. The tables outside were not so clean, but the salad was quite good!

We stayed here for 3 nights as it is in a good location for visiting: Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Monkey World (and Bossington Tank Museum). It was straight after refurbishment - so smelt of paint. The beds were as good as our bed at home - firm and comfy. The Hotel is owned by the brewing company, Hall and... More

Me and my dad went early on a Saturday night about 6:30pm for some dinner in the restaurant . Service was friendly but things were forgotten like the water for the table and 3 different staff members asked us if we'd like coffee before we'd even been shown the dessert menu. The food was extremely disappointing as we both opted... More
