I stayed a night in early January in room 31 and I can't tell how impressed I was with the history and character of the building and the room itself. Loved the low beams!! Nice and comfy bed, good beer at the bar and a proper fry up for breakfast. Lovely staff! What else do I

Thank you for your review as we explained in the morning we did have a problem with our hot water boiler but as soon as we were made aware we put our back up system on which takes approx 30 minutes to have hot water. Breakfast is self service with plenty of hot and cold choices. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us however the issues were fixed.

Thank you for writing a review we take all your comments very seriously. All our beds are a standard size having checked the bathroom everything was in working order it was actually a newly refurbished bathroom. There is nothing wrong with our heating as its separate to our hot water system. If you needed extra heating there are extra blankets and an electric heater in the wardrobe. We did have a problem with our boiler for the hot water overnight when it was brought to our attention in the morning we put our back up system on and you were informed that it would take approx 30 mins before the hot water would be available. Breakfast was partially self service but the hot food was cooked to order it came in separate plates as you asked for the extras after you had already got your full English breakfast as everything is cooked to order, I will however pass on your comments to the team

We held our Golden Wedding Anniversary here in the Surtees Room. We had a brilliant evening. The staff went out of their way prior to the function to ensure that they knew our requirements. We chose the buffet menu. On the night Katherina was our designated point of contact.

We stayed for one night on a last minute deal. Bed and breakfast was £40 for a Saturday night so we didn’t expect anything fancy. The room was a little musty with dated furniture and a strange layout. There were a couple of furniture issues like a drawer front missing and the

Thank you for taking time to write a review all comments good and bad are very important to us. having checked the room the windows in the bathroom are frosted and there is also a curtain that covers the entire window. There were no issues with the bed or mattress. The breakfast is included in the price and the buffet breakfast is replenished through out breakfast to ensure everything is fresh if you had wanted a jug of water a waiter could have provided one but it is something we will consider adding to the buffet. We had other guests and no one complained about the hot water and having checked your room all was working fine. If you would like to discuss this further please call the hotel on 01280 702210.

Hello traveler. We only ate at the crown, and certainly did not pay any charges for WiFi. If you pay for WiFi when you stay as a paying guest overnight, I can not say. Sorry I cannot be of further help. Happy travelling. X
