Me and my partner stayed at The Crown in Lynton over the weekend 8-10th October and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were in the area to enjoy the local food festival. The hotel and bar staff were very friendly and provided a great service and atmosphere. The room was lovely and v.clean and the location was fantastic for exploring the surrounding area. I would recommend anyone to stay here young or old.

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!
