Do NOT waste your time or money in this place. The food was a joke and the service was just as bad. This place has recently been taken over by new management who seem to be wrecking the good reputation it used to have. Such a shame as the people who run it before were lovely decent people. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the new management.

Terrible food and terrible customer service with rude staff and management that obviously have little or no idea how to run this place. Take your custom elsewhere, at least, until the current management leaves!

If you want rudeness, dirt, and bad food this is the place for you. What used to be a good place has now been taken over by people who clearly should not be dealing with members of the public as they seem to have nothing but contempt for them.

Would have considered staying here at one time - but after a brief visit and meeting the landlord we fled. Such a shame, why are people allowed to ruin a place?

A true hovel.

My worst stay ever. Room (#19) above a juke box playing cheesy music until late, owners extremely rough without any idea what customer service is, no consideration whatsover, the bed ruined my back, icing on the cake: I was having a hot bath, the steam triggered the fire alarm, 5min later the two owners came banging at my door, completely hysterical and shouted at me and my wife accusing us to smoke in our bedroom! A shame, Lynton is a lovely place but this stay at the crown really spoiled my week end. Avoid!

Arrived, couldnt find a parking spot, staff not helpful. Room grubby and smelly, pillows old, bed not comfy, stained carpet. Music went on until early hours. Had to ask other quests to stop plinking at a quitar at 1.15pm. Could hear neighbours on toilet through the walls. Doors banging constantly in the night. A fight broke out just outside our window at 12.30, went on for 15 mins, quiet scary. Owners rude when we explained that we were moving on because of above problems. Breakfast was fine but we couldnt find a clean glass for our orange juice. On a positive note the towels were nice clean and fluffy. Wouldnt stay there again - ever. Paid £60 for the room with breakfast and would have had a better nights sleep in the car!
