Arrived on a Sunday evening not knowing what to expect. Really nice location and very tranquil. After check in I went to my room to be presented with a four poster bed that creaked and furniture of the same period, although I slept really well on it. Clean room and well appointed with accessories. My only recommendation would be having... More

Room 6 in old stables very comfortable. We had driven from Wirral and were late arriving. The kitchen staff were most accommodating. There is outdoor seating . Ample free parking. Staff very kindly assisted us with booking Dartford crossing on line £ 2.50 each way. Tea and coffee facilities in room. Ghost Ship bottled beer.

Stayed here last night and am still hopping mad. I booked a room directly with the hotel a few weeks back. We were visiting friends in Littlebury and had been advised to book the Crown House. The lady assured us of the best available room and not to worry as everything would be in hand for a perfect stay. Due... More

I am very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience when you stayed with us.

I have stayed here several times in the last couple of months because business brought me to the area. I prefer to stay at independent hotels when travelling as they have more soul but they can be a bit of a lottery. This was on the main a winner but number of small things let it down, making the experience... More

Small private hotel. Comfortable and clean with some quirky rooms. Food is generally above average and breakfasts are very good. Free wifi and generally well laid out rooms. Staff are helpful and parking is adequate. Can get very busy during Duxford Airshow and other large local events. Have stayed here regularly and have found it suitable for my business travel...

I booked this through trip advisor (getaroom.com is on all the paperwork although it seems Expedia have also been involved in the booking) and when I arrived at the hotel they didn't have a reservation for me. The staff there were wonderful - they let me stay in a staff room otherwise I would have been completely stuck. Apparently they... More

This was a wonderful short break. We've stayed here before and Tina and the staff are really good, but this time they were truly excellent!
