The Crown of Crucis is a lovely country hotel just on the outskirts of the pretty village of Ampney Crucis. It's the perfect antidote to city life as you stare over the stream and cricket pitch towards fields and the village.
Even though we checked in early we were greeted cordially. The rooms are compact but clean with good facilities, freeview TV and a tea and coffee making set. The bed is delightfully comfortable and the whole aura of the place is a welcoming rural idyll.
Breakfast in the morning was delightfully cooked and speedily executed. A good selection of cereals and a range of hot choices. I went for the "Cotswold Grill" which was filling but not excessive and my wife went for the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which she enjoyed.
On leaving we were contacted by reception as we had left behind a necklace. We were very grateful to have this posted to us. This is an example to show that the service here is superior and we will look forward to returning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- To us, your stay at The Crown of Crucis is about more than the comforts afforded by your bedroom and en-suite. We want you to enjoy everything that our small but perfectly formed country inn and hotel has to offer. Take time to soak up the atmosphere of our historic bar, or the best of the sun in our riverside garden. Have a quiet coffee and read the papers in our lounge or courtyard garden. Sip your pre-dinner drinks or set the world to rights over a nightcap in our extremely homely Snug, opening soon exclusively to guests of the hotel and diners at the Brook restaurant. Wherever you choose to spend your time we only hope you make it quality time, and enjoy your stay. ... more less
