This trip was very much looked forward to as it was rearranged 3 times from our anniversary in December due to covid 19 lockdowns. The staff did a great job in rescheduling our booking and keeping us informed. This was a dinner B&B special offer. Accommodation: Our room was small however it was very clean with modern decor and furnishings and a comfy bed. We had an issue with the glass shower screen in the bathroom which had no rubber seal along the bottom. We didn’t notice this until we took a shower and the water ran off the screen and flooded the floor. We mopped this up with towels as it was slippery and informed the front desk and asked for it to be fixed. The lady on duty organised some fresh towels and said she would try and find a seal and ensure it was fixed and remove the wet towels. On return from dinner however this wasn’t done. The next morning there was no hot water for a shower and no explanation or apology when we informed the desk. Food: For dinner we both had starters which were good. I had fish and chips which was excellent in both quality and quantity. My husband made the mistake of having the lamb which was a small portion on a small plate in comparison to mine and he felt the lamb was not of good quality. We did not have desserts Breakfast was very good even if the service was quite slow. The staff were generally very friendly and keen to please. The location was a long drive for us but generally worth the 6 month wait to stay at the Crown. One could think as we were only staying the one night there was no urgency to rectify the shower/hot water issues. Had it not been for these issues this would have been a very nice stay. Having travelled extensively and stayed in many different standards of hotel it’s how these customer issues are managed by the staff that make all the difference to ones impressions.

Two night stay disappointing No one on reception despite arriving at check in time of day, member of kitchen staff who did walk in made no effort to help us or call someone. Room not as website description dark and gloomy, not value for money. Communal garden could be nice, although dogs should not be allowed to use as toilet area Dining room very pleasant however table dirty from previous night service, cups arrived unclean from dishwasher. Second night spoilt by gas problem, I understand this was totally beyond hotel control (resulted in no hot water before checking out next day) however no attempt made to inform us of situation. Only contact was 10 minutes before a dinner reservation when told we would have to make our own plans as not serving any meals, no mention of lack of hot water. staff communication and training sadly lacking.

We stayed one night at the Crown and were very well looked after. The room was lovely, dinner excellent and good selection of wines. The one thing that is most obvious at The Crown is its staff - they clearly get on well and have a great respect for each other and that shows. They are all very cheerful and attentive. We would most definitely recommend.

What a wonderful place and the first time back to this part of the country in 15 years. The staff without exception are kind, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. So sad that they will have to close tomorrow but hopeful they can recover for a buzzing and profitable Christmas. Thanks for a lovely stay and wish you all the very best. Will return!

We have stayed twice recently at the Westleton Crown located between Southwold, Dunwich and Aldborough. It is a great location for a few days by the coast. Dog friendly. Great food and service, relaxed atmosphere, nice bar. The staff are friendly and helpful (thanks particularly to Rosie for your cheerful help). A delightful stay and a hotel we highly recommend.
