I'd agree with previous reviewers that The Crown is well situated and the staff were friendly and helpful. But dear oh dear, the place itself is a dreary, tired old place. One could put up with the creaking floorboards if that was part of some 'olde worlde' charm - but 'fraid not - it just reflected poor maintenance. On the first night of our stay we had to run the water for 15 - 20 minutes before we got any hot water at all, and the heating was turned off early in the morning. The room itself was drab with very poor lighting - in fact the only way you could see into the wardrobe was by having the bathroom light on and door open! The bathroom must have been designed by an orangutan, judging by the distance from the loo to the loo paper holder! Breakfast was adequate but below average.
Altogether a disappointing stay for the price - only trumped by a previous stay at the even worse White Heart Hotel over the road. I'll not be going back again - I've had a much better stay at the Holiday Inn!
