On arrival we rang the bell (mid day) and waited, and waited then went off for a coffee across the road at Costa. The bar was ok, "Lite Bite" lunch was ok, nothing special. The room (no 16) was depressing: it looked as though it had never been redecorated since the place was built, a long long time ago. It...

The Crown Hotel is centrally located in Brackley. It is a rather spartan and old fashioned hotel, but the personnel are sympathetic and very helpful. My room was at the top end of the aisle, meaning WiFi coverage wasn't optimal (if any). Furniture are old and wallpaper starts peeling here and there... But overall, clean and tidy. Bathroom is neat...

I noticed yesterday the carpet hadn't been vacuumed and there were bits all over including a toe nail clipping by the door. The light...

Our accommodation was comfortable, but in many parts of this former coaching inn, much of the decor was tired, and the paintwork, etc, needs re-decorating - and some of the furniture was a bit worn. The staff were pleasant and tried to be helpful which was nice. And the hotel is in an easy location, with ample parking spaces in...
