“CCTV camera in the toilets watching you pee!!!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

What an awful experience we had at the Crown Inn. Very expensive drinks and then when I wanted to use the loo there were CCTV cameras pointed straight at the urinals watching me pee. I thought this was against basic human rights and the law of the land. Dreadful place.

My wife and I although long time residents of Chislehurst had recently moved to the USA and this was our first visit back since we left the Country. We sourced the Crown Inn via the Internet as we knew the location would be convenient for London but what we could not have anticipated was the outstanding quality of service that we experienced from the moment we arrived at the Crown Inn

Reuben and Katie are outstanding managers and hosts and there entire staff helpful and efficient , whatever assistance we required was met with a ' no problem ' attitude and instant solution

The rooms are well appointed and the deluxe room enjoys wonderful views over the common. They are both clean and comfortable and despite being above the pub there is little or no noise from the bar that affects you if you are in the rooms during opening hours but frankly with the quality of the bar and the restaurant why would you be in your room !!.

The bar provides an excellent atmosphere with a great selection of local ales and recognised beers and lagers as well as a good selection of wines by the glass.

The restaurant really is first class . The breakfast is outstanding , and both the lunch and evening menus are varied and both the quality and quantity of the food proves great value for money as does a well stocked wine cellar. The Sunday lunch is also superb.

We would strongly recommend the Crown Inn whether you are looking for an overnight stay , a weekend break or longer and we shall definitely be staying here on our subsequent visits.

10/10

Room Tip: If available the Deluxe room is a must

We booked the standard room for ten nights on the internet and upgraded to the deluxe room via telephone. When we arrived, we were told abruptly that we never called and that the deluxe room was only available for one night. The manager was inhospitable and argumentative so we canceled our stay after the first night.

The deluxe rooms are the only two decent rooms in the hotel. We saw most of the rooms in the hotel after the staff moved our unpacked things to another room while we were out for the day (are they allowed to do that?). We searched almost all seven rooms in the hotel looking for our ipad, computer, unpacked clothing, passports, and other personal items. The lack of cleanliness of the rooms and restaurant was a surprise after the descriptions we had read about the hotel before our arrival.

All in all, an establishment with an inept manager and an untrained staff.

While I didn't actually manage to stay at the hotel - the customer service received with a travel / booking issue was outstanding! Many thanks to the hotel for making what could have been a very costly muddle a painless experience for me - totally thrilled by your help & attitude. Huge thanks to fabulous staff.

Clean, comfortable, simple but well appointed rooms. The rooms are above the pub. Ours had a view of the common. Very friendly young staff. Excellent breakfast - quality and quantity. The Sunday lunch menu looks good also. Short walk from more restaurants (and pubs). Overall good value and a lot nicer than the B&Bs on offer in the area. This is really a B&B which happens to have the pub meals downstairs so don't expect hotel type hours of service.

Overnight stay for the 2 of us, very pleasant, big, clean and what was expected for the price, however mayby my expectations were too high when room service was not welcomed/given when asked, kitchen closed at 9pm on a thursday but i was told it was closed already at 8:45 so a bit more could be done service wise. Overall friendly service from all staff, will be staying here again as nothing in the area matches the crown in

We stayed here overnight as we were attending a party nearby. We were looking for a comfortable clean hotel in the area. The crown inn did exactly what it said on the tin. Comfortable bed, immaculately clean and a good breakfast. Thank you!
