My family and I stayed over for one night at the weekend, the hotel was amazing and staff were perlite and couldn't do enough for you. The room was very spacious and as there was 5 of us, there was plenty of space to move around. The evening meal and breakfast was lovely, hats off to the cheff/'s. My children...

So the buildings are great, the main house is lovely from the outside, really lovely and offers so much when you drive into the walled courtyard..... the inside is not really sure what it's supposed to be. the bar area is comfortable and cosy and has absolutely no atmosphere on the 3 occasions i've stayed there, the restaurant looks great...

Thank you for your review, it is lovely to hear from our regular guests as you can give us different insights, seeing the hotel over time. Firstly, we would love to be able to fully refurbish this beautiful old coaching inn, we love the building and its chequered history, it is a privilege to work here keeping an ancient custom...

A pleasant stay in the stables annexe - the room was a bit tired but was warm and comfortable with everything you need. The staff were accommodating but not over friendly. Horrible orange lights in the courtyard which shine into your room all night but the curtains were thick and it was away from the road so very quiet. Nice...

Thank you for writing a review of your stay with us. I am not sure if you meant that the staff were respectful and not too "full on" or that you did not find us friendly enough? If it is the latter I am very sorry to hear that, and I hope that it did not spoil your stay with...

The crown house hotel is probably the worst place I have stayed as far as hospitality goes . The rooms were ok, albeit a little tired and not exactly sparkling clean, but the staff are rude and ignorant beyond anything I have ever come across in a hotel or restaurant. We had booked a table for 7.30, we met in...

I am very sorry that you had such an unusual experience at The Crown House. I think our consistently good comments and awards from Booking. Com, Trivago and TripAdvisor for our hospitality and friendliness speak for themselves. We also score very highly for hospitality on Late Rooms and Eviivo. This does not mean that we are complacent, we really value...

We were at a wedding in the village so stayed here. An old Georgian house with wonky floors and ceilings. A "cosy" room with a decent sized bathroom (with a proper sized bath) with copious amounts of hot water. Good enough for a one night stay. nice views of gardens at the rear of the property. A quiet spot and...

The time in Saffron Walden is 1963 (which is rather late for me) - Between the end of the "Chatterley" ban And the Beatles' first LP. (With apologies to Larkin).

We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. I don't think we would have minded Lady Chatterley at The Crown House.Lord Byron often stayed here on his way to "visit" his half sister. It is so difficult to know what sort of music people prefer to listen to in the dining room,...

We stayed a couple of nights and were made very welcome. The room was comfy and the bathroom big. We were able to sit outside for a drink in the tent in the garden which was nice. The food was good but we were the only ones in the restaurant on Saturday night which was weird! It was a great...

We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us recently. And that you missed some of our dreadful storms of late to be able to enjoy drinks in the garden.

Stayed here for 3 nights for my sisters wedding and really enjoyed my stay.
