I stayed one night. They opened early for me, let me check out late. The room was very comfortable, tranquil. The place reeks of character. From this experience I certainly recommend The Crown wholeheartedly. If you visit often create a relationship and be part of the town by meeting the locals here.

From beginning to end our stay at The Crown was absolutely excellent! We have stayed for 2 nights this weekend with our dog. As soon as we walked in on a freezing cold day we were greeted by a roaring fire and lovely warm room. Our room was very comfortable and clean with modern bathroom. We are both nights in...

I stayed here for a few nights in mid December with my husband and pup. It was just perfect in terms of the Exmoor location, easy to find, plenty of car parking space, friendly staff, delicious food (including vegetarian options), wine and beers, a comfortable bed, powerful heating, good shower, tea and coffee facilities in room, good wifi, prompt and...

Four of us visited the Crown Hotel for lunch following an extensive walk on 27th December. The welcome, the service, and the quality/presentation of the food was absolutely first class. Highly recommended!

Set in the centre of Exmoor with the advantage of being in a small village. There is a local shop a couple of doors down from the hotel where we were able to purchase sandwiches for our packed lunch and another pub within walking distance if you want a change of scene in the evening. The hotel is comfortable and...

We had an evening meal here after a good day's walking. Nice atmosphere , good service and very tasty food. We'll be back. A proper menu...not reheats from a freezer! The belly pork was particularly well cooked and the side accompaniments were great.

We've just had another great stay at The Crown, having not been there for a number of years. It still has the same family-run feel to it. Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff. We stayed in Room 5, which is large and overlooks the village green. But it is the bathroom that makes it - it is...

Ate here twice whilst staying in Exford for a short break. Good choice of food for the gluten free diner. Not the cheapest pub to dine in, but good value for money as the food was excellent.

Thank you for your review and comments.
