We were looking for a quiet pub for a relaxed three-night stay in Exmoor. The Crown Hotel offered the ideal solution. It was a no-nonsense sort of place, where priorities were good food and comfortable homely surroundings. Our standard double room was large by general standards. The bed was comfortable and the room was well furnished. I felt they had... More

Very friendly staff made us, and our small dog, feel most welcome. Rooms were clean and furnished to a high standard. We were a party of thirteen who ate in the bar on a Saturday evening. We all had an enjoyable, well presented, meal chosen from an extensive menu. The hotel is adjacent to the village green in an attractive... More

My wife and I made a last minute booking mid-week in June for a two night escape from routine. On the basis of a previous stop for lunch we chose the Crown, on the basis of the comfortable feel of the hotel as well as the quiet village location. The hotel exceeded our expectation for a three star hotel. The... More

This is the sixth year we have stayed at the Crown and each year the service and value has been exceptional. Nothing is too much for the family who run this hotel and the Blankney party that go each year are already looking forward to March 2017. Also if you have dogs - not a problem.

We've been here a couple of times. The food is excellent..a little pricey perhaps...but definitely at the top end quality wise, so that isn't an issue. The manager was extremely pleasant too. However, the evening was marred by a large and very loud man at the bar blowing loud raspberries and generally being obnoxious. He made it clear that he... More
