My husband and I stayed here on a Saturday night after attending a wedding reception nearby. When checking in we were stood in the empty bar waiting for someone for 5 minutes before my husband went looking for someone. A gentleman then checked us in by taking payment and leading us to our room. That was it. He didn't give... More

Stayed two nights but wished we'd chosen to stay somewhere friendlier. Staff not welcoming or helpful. Told that people only stayed there because it was cheap! It's an old place and rather rambling. Pleasant cobbled yard in middle. A bit of a trek along corridors to our room but the room was pleasant, at the back so it was quiet... More

Well where to start. If you can look past the gang of smokers loitering outside the entrance The Crown looks fine. That's as good as it gets! The manager, Tony I think his name was, is a rude and obnoxious man. I was shown to a rather shabby looking room, at closer inspection I found what looked suspiciously like public... More

I stayed here for one night as I had a seminar close by the next day. All staff seem very pleasant and obliging. I stayed in the room 9 which had 3 single beds for just me! Room was of course of a good size and nice and clean. Facilities were as expected. This hotel in an Old Coaching Inn... More

First time back after over 25 years. Very slow service being advised 15 minutes after ordering that some items not available and limited numbers of other dishes. Food good when arrived but overriding impression dominated by the lack of service. Won't rush back!

This is one of the worst hotels I have stayed in - the twin room was small (room 4) nothing like the photographs on their site! The poorly lit lamp on the bedside table had a shade that had rotted away the door knobs were missing from the wardrobe and most of the coat hangers were broken. The shower door... More

We had a triple room with breakfast and free wifi throughout. Excellent powerful and hot shower. Quiet location of room. Comfy beds.Staff friendly and helpful. It is a bit dated and the sausages could be better quality. Good value.

You get what you pay for and, if this place was around the £50 - £60 mark, it would have been just ok BUT we paid £109 for one night in a superior room. Where to start!? In the centre of the town next to a very lively bar / club. The frontage was crowded and blocked with rowdy, smoking... More

This was a great place for us to stay, right in the centre of Faringdon. Yes it could do with a little modernising but what it lacked in some areas, it made up for with cleanliness, quirkiness, convenience and very friendly staff. Would recommend.

Stayed over while visiting family. Lovely old pub but rooms desperately need some TLC Our bathroom was a bit grotty & the lighting was poor. Hangers in wardrobe were worse than useless - they kept falling out of the fixed hooks! Decent breakfast served in spacious dining room. The whole place is like a rabbit warren & takes a bit...
