Clean room.

Negative Reviews

Thin walls.

Due to it's Medieval structure, the Old Crown Inn is known for having thin walls. Previous guests have reported noise travelling from the downstairs pub and beer garden into their rooms, as well as an ability to hear their neighbours television sets.

Slow service.

Some guests felt the front desk reception service and restaurant staff was rather unhurried... Perhaps this is just another feature suiting to the era?
