Negative Reviews

Mobility issues.

Because The Crown is an old, historic building, some guests have commented that it doesn't cater well for those with restricted mobility. There are reports of cramped, steep stairwells to the rooms and no wheelchair access at the main door.

Pricey restaurant.

Some guests felt that the food in the restaurant was a little on the expensive side, and while most felt that the price tag was well-deserved, others felt that the steep prices weren't justified.

Service at breakfast can be slow.

Some guests felt that the breakfast service was a little disorganised and inconsistent, with a slow service on some days and not on others.
