We have stayed at the crown many times since 1997 and always found it clean welcoming, the food is excellent and the staff are friendly and professional and work very hard to make your stay enjoyable.
So when we decided we wanted to get married the crown was our first choice and we were not disappointed.

Our wedding was on 23rd April and we took 25 very close family and friends down to the new forest for two days. We stayed at the hotel and held our service and reception there and I cannot praise Andrew Moody (the manager) and his staff enough. Our guests were made to feel very welcome and special and nothing was too much trouble. Everything went according to plan, the food was absolutely fantastic and the attention to detail was second to none.

This is an old hotel with a very homely feel that is very very good value for money. It is also in a very good location to explore the new forest or the seaside or stay in the charming village of Lyndhurst. I would have no hesitation recommending it whether it be for a short break or wedding you
will not be disappointed

This hotel sums up all that is wrong with English hotels. Outdated, faded decor, small noisy rooms, bathrooms that look like they belong in an institution, overpretentious menus. Rooms overlooking the road very noisy. Inflexible- breakfast finishes at 9. 30 on a Saturday. Like most English hotels, extremely expensive for what you get.

Staff very pleasant, though.

After looking around for a suitable venue for our wedding and wedding reception, we chose the Crown in Lyndhurst (August 2003). The hotel is not too grand or intimidating but at the same time is decorated beautifully, serves great food and has very helpful staff. The garden is really quite small and I was worried about fitting all our 80 guests in there for post ceremony drinks, but all worked out well. The prices are good too, as far as weddings are concerned at hotels in this area.
I stayed there the night before the wedding with my bridesmaids, and got treated really well, and then on our wedding night with my new husband. The hotel manager, Mr Moody, stayed on shift all through our party until the wee hours of the morning and really helped us make the day feel special. The staff, although rushed off their feet (popular hotel!) would do anything - brought us jugs of iced water to the room in the middle of the night, made sure all the tiny (but very important) details for the wedding were in order. Thanks for making our wedding day so special and memorable.

A fantastic looking hotel, with a great pub section (serving good, English food), and an even better restaurant serving English food again, but with a touch more class. The only downside of this hotel was our room and the room next door was separated by a very thin dividing wall which meant I personally could not sleep much due to my neighbour's snoring. However, the staff were very friendly and I got to watch tv in the early hours in their staffroom, with the offers of tea, hot chocolate etc- If you're a heavy sleeper, you'll love it - if not take earplugs!
