The hotel has been transformed! The combination of a sympathetic but high standard modernisation of this atmospheric old building and a staff team who are all believe in making their guests welcome makes this a favourite place to stay. The bedrooms have been tastefully renovated and the large bar area, which is L shaped allowing one leg to be quieter,...

Arrived 12.30 on a Sunday, left 4.00pm. after a single course and a coffee and wine. The car park and location and reception staff are excellent. We found the food mediocre, tough,dried duck salad, pretty average vegetarian pie, expensive for cheap wine, especially from a large local brewer. The standout was the really aweful dining service. Few of the staff...

Was very impressed with the hotel, room and breakfast. Would certainly recommend people to stay here. Great restaurant....separate bar and very friendly staff. The hotel is also quite old...but very up to date.

We held a wake for my late Aunt at The Crown with cousins coming from all round the country. The Hotel has recently been refurbished to a very high standard, the bedroom decor is very much in keeping with the Georgian architecture. The staff are friendly and couldn't have been more helpful, they made a sad occasion a perfect send...

Low price, nice clean rooms, friendly staff, good restaurant and bar, free WIFI, free parking. All you really need. :) I can highly recommend The Crown Hotel. I did spend one night here with a friend, and this hotel does suit all needs for a really low price.

We have stayed there before but since they refurbished the whole place sometime last year this was our first time back in town and it was fantastic. We went down to Blandford from London originally for one night only but because the new rooms, new restaurant and bar and refreshed layout we ended up staying for three nights and boy,...

The staff here were the friendliest I've come across. The room was beautiful. The bath was actually big enough for two. I emailed a few times about a couple of things and always got a prompt and courteous reply. I'll definitely be returning.

We were visiting friends in the area and booked a nights stay at this lovely hotel. On entering, there is a wonderful friendly atmosphere, easy check in and staff very friendly and helpful. We had a drink at the bar which was a little expensive but we still enjoyed ourselves and the bar area is fabulous. Our room was beautifully...

I originally stayed here for one night on a business trip in March 2017. The hotel staff were amazing! From reception, to dinner and breakfast staff. I loved my room so much. The hotel has so much character and has been decorated in a way that was beautiful and really respected the history of the building. Loads of vegetarian option...
