We booked a 2 night break via 'Secret Escapes' so got a very good deal with dinner included one night and a free bottle of wine if eating in restaurant on second night. Check in was effortless, first impression of our room was great, the furniture and fixings are of very high quality and although our room was quite snug the room was perfect for us. The ensuite had a very powerful shower and again decorated very nicely, only one little negative was the shower cubicle size, quite small and would suggest they install some sort of little shelf to house shower gel, shampoo etc. The restaurant was lovely, the staff were very polite, friendly, informative and professional and always seemed pleased to deal with their customers. The food was also of very good quality, my husband was such a fan of the ribeye steak he had it both nights and said they were the best steaks he'd ever had. The breakfasts were great too, with good quality produce. As we visited on the hottest days of the year we welcomed sitting in the courtyard after dinner to enjoy drinks form the bar. We visited Stratford Upon Avon on route to hotel and the next day went to Oxford on the bus which was all very painless and saved the hassle of driving for the day. All in all a great weekend stay, Thank you to everyone at The Crown & Thistle.
