The Crown At Hopton
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We got a really good deal on mighty deals and had a two night stay with breakfast. We stayed in room 23 which is not part of the hotel but an annexe. It was more than adequate, though a bit dated and i didnt have a bedside table which was annoying and the mirrors in the room have clearly been put up by a man as applying make up and doing your hair required thought. The light above the mirror in the bathroom didnt work and the eco light bulb in the bedroom didnt throw off much light. The television didnt work and the bathroom extractor fan didnt work and neither did the towel radiator. So in my vain to be eco we didnt get the towels changed which meant that when we came back in the evening for a shower they were still damp. Not all that pleasant drying yourself with a damp towel. However, the shower was brilliant.

All in all the room was ok, i think i would be miffed if we had paid the full tariff for this room as it needs to go a long way before it can realistically start charging these prices and i guess why so many of the reviews are from people who have been able to secure a deal of some sort.

The great thing about the Crown is that the locals use it so there are a diverse range of people in the bar and restuarant and chatting to locals meant we picked up some handy tips of where to visit.

We ate in the resturant both nights and this is their forte the food is fab and at the right price. If the belly of pork and the creme brulee are on the menu than i cannot recommend this highly enough.

The staff were great and so helpful and cheery despite never seeming to go home. Amanda and Ryan are credits to the Crown and they clearly take their roles seriously and want guests to enjoy their stay.

We would definately stay again, if another deal came up, The Crown is in a beautiful part of England and the countryside is stunning. A visit to Ludlow is a must as is a visit to the Ludlow Food Centre, where all local produce is available. I just wish we could have bought more.

We have just left this inn that we booked through Amazon Local so we were getting a good deal. We too were surprised by some of the negative reviews as Fern made as feel very welcomed and we found our room to be lovely and cosy with beamed ceilings and the food good value. However there is limited mobile signal and whilst they do have wifi it's only available on the ground floor. The only negative from us was in the bathroom there were cobwebs between the beams in the ceiling and also in the restaurant, pointing the Hoover upwards would be a good idea and there was a number of flies in the restaurant when we had breakfast and dinner. That aside all the staff were very friendly and we had a lovely stay.

We have just returned from a two night stay at The Crown, Hopton Wafers. With us was our 5 month old puppy Harry and we stayed in room 23 in the cottage. It was on the ground floor and had a side door straight out into the garden which suited us very well. The decor was a little dated but the bathroom had been newly refurbished and everything was very clean.

We got a good deal through Amazon Local which was for two nights bed and breakfast & a three course dinner from the Early Bird menu on the first night, all for £99 which we thought was real value for money. We also had dinner there on the second night. The food was excellent. well presented, beautifully cooked and a diverse menu to choose from.

The staff were really friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. It looked to us as if there had been a 'new broom' sweeping through the place, and it turned out we were right. Ryan & Amanda became managers three weeks ago and it's clear they have youth and enthusiasm on their side and have already made some positive changes.

Hopton Wafers is an ideal location for exploring Shropshire, which is reputed to be the last real farming county in the U.K. We visited the Severn Valley Railway, starting from Kidderminster, going through to Bridgnorth and back again, stopping off at Highley to visit the railway museum. We would have explored more, but Harry was taken ill which restricted our movements slightly.

Despite Harry's indisposition, we enjoyed our stay at the Crown and wish Ryan & Amanda the very best of luck in their endeavours. We hope to visit again.

The Crown at Hopton Wafers is a lovely Inn with good beer and food. Rooms are comfortable and reasonable well equipped as expected for such a place. It is just a few miles from Clee Hill village where you can experience one of the best views in the country looking south over 7 counties and not far from Ludlow, Leominster etc. Really enjoyed our 3 night stay.

Before we went on our short GoGroupie deal I made the mistake of reading the reviews that people had written....my heart sank! But to our delight we found that the earlier reviews didn't match our own experience.....yes there is a need to do some updating and maintenance as others have suggested, and a little more care with some aspects of staff training and aspects of customer service but that's being picky. We had a lovely stay especially given the discounted deal we went in on....not sure I would pay the rack rate to stay. The food was excellent as was the warmth of the staff.

We stayed here for a 2 night break with a on line deal, rooms are very old looking, but it is an old type pub but it could do with a lick of paint in rooms to brighten it up. beds uncomfortable( for me anyway) we were in room 7, no where to plug your hairdryer near the large mirror in the room. bathroom hot tap at sink didn't work but plenty of hot water in shower. every time we flushed loo it sounded like a boat fog horn, so we dare not flush late at night because of the noise it made. plenty of tea facilities in room which is good, always filled up. at breakfast you are given 2 choices, continental or cooked english. if you have cooked you are not allowed cereals. (for 2 pounds extra you can (what cheek)stayed in cheaper and better places that give you everything.if you have continental you get toast or 1 crossiant. so be aware. the ladies who serve you are very pleasant but the manager needs some customer skills or put it bluntly a smiling skill. also not very talkative. sorry would not stay here again
