Reviewed November 1, 2010

first impressions were oh its not to bad nice friendly girl on check in advised us restaurant was full at 7-30 so we booked for 8 got a very indifferent meal at 9.we cancelled breakfast as we wanted to be away before noon. staff ok even had a bit of a laugh with the head waiter , but the poor meal took the edge off the night. bar prices quite steep little change out of a tenner for a pint and a sherry. would have to be desperate to visit again

My wife and I booked here for a night away, as it seemed like a charming pub / hotel in a nice little market town. This is exactly how it turned out to be, a nice building, well equipped with amenities. The pool was nice, as was the jacuzzi. The place however did seem eerily quiet, one of the bars downstairs was always closed, the communal areas were deserted, the restaurant was empty and devoid of character, as was the main bar area. Reception was efficient if not terribly welcoming.

The room was in the far corner of the top floor, which was actually fine because it flet more private, however, on the down side:
We had a view of a brick wall which wasn't nice. The old sash window didnt close properly and rattled in the wind, the tv was tiny and mounted high in the corner. The bathroom door wouldnt close, and the toilet seat wouldnt stay up, which is dangerous as any man wil tell you.

That said, the room was cosy and comfy, maybe a little cramped if you're there for any longer than 2 or 3 nights with a lot of luggage. The bed was comfy and the shower was very nice. Boroughbridge is a nice little town, not much to do really , but many pubs and beer is cheap ! The free WiFi in the hotel was also very welcome.

we are just back from a 4 day break/ we found the hotel excellent , the price for the stay reasonable /the staff were very friendly and efficient/the food in the restaurant both at breakfast and at dinner time was first class and the service was unhurried so we could enjoy our meal/.plenty of quiet areas where you could just lounge about and read the papers if you wished./ we used the leisure centre everyday and the pool, sauna and steam room just made the relaxation all the better and changing rooms were clean and tidy/ our executive room didnt disappoint as we found it spacious and comfortable.One could always nit pick about certain things as in any where but I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

Stayed in this hotel whilst up in Yorkshire for a wedding. I was a bit worried as the hotel was only 3 star. We couldn't get into the local 4 star ones as they were full. I had nothing to worry about, the staff were 5 star, nice local people who took pride in their work....... they couldn't do enough to help. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, despite being busy, the breakfast was served quickly and with a smile. This is an example of a what every medium sized hotel should be striving to achieve. Whoever is managing this hotel should be out there training staff in other hotels who in many cases have forgotten how to deliver good customer service. Would have no hesitation in using this hotel again.

This was an expensive 1 night stay! I guess we paid a premium because of the swimming pool which we did intend to make use of but found that Saurday am was the toddler session. Nothing against children -we have 3 of our own - but when on an adult break we want peace for a change!
The room was very small and the bathroom poorly equiped. I had to hunt in the wardrobe for a second set of towels, there was no soap and this was the first time that we have ever had a disposible plastic cup in the bathroom. The batteries for the TV remote were held in with selotape and I had difficulty seeing the TV even with my glasses on - it was so small.
We ate in the hotel bar in the evening - we were going to use the restaurant but as there was nobody there except a very helpful and friendly bar person come waitress, we felt it was a waste to put the lights on. The meal and service were excellent. Breakfast was adequate. I expect this hotel has a bit more of the promised atmoshere in better weather.

Found this gorgeous hotel in between Christmas & Ne Year and stayed here whilst visiting Gread OldAuntie Maud locally !! All the staff were so happy to see us, we were welcomed and made to feel like old firends.

The bed room was clean, fresh and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and good quality. The real gem of this property is the amazing leisure club !! WOW what a treat that was. The sauna & steam room and jacuzzi and gym were clean and the club was staffed .. quite a rarity these days ...

Normally only visit Boroughbridge when Old Aunty Maud is having a party but will certainly be back to the Crown Hotel before long, we got value for money and throghly ejoyed being a the Crown Hotel.

We have stayed at the Crown four times so far, and have just enjoyed another fantastic weekend there.

It is a beautiful old building in the gorgeous market town of Boroughbridge. The hotel is fantastic, with individual decor and furniture in each room. The bedrooms and ensuites are all very spacious, as are the public areas. There are a variety of quiet lounge areas and a beautiful bar / restaurant, traditionally decorated and full of individual flair.

The pool & leisure centre always look brand new; in each of our visits we have had the pool to ourselves - very relaxing.

We have always found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful - you really feel that they are trying to make your stay more enjoyable - extremely rare these days!

The food is simply wonderful, especially the home made deserts and breakfasts! The hotel is quiet although wonderfully situated in Boroughbridge, which I might add has some amazing shops for such a small town and is well worth exploring. The Crown is the perfect base for exploring York, the Dales and many pretty Yorkshire towns.

We will certainly be visiting again later this year.
