Hotel with heart, polite and friendly staff. Rooms very clean, bar meals very good. We've had stayed there as a break during our trip around England. Everybody always smiling and greeting you as you feel like at home. I would like to recommend that place if you enjoying your stay in old style hotels like this one. Will be back...

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...

At first view I thought that the reviews on here were a bit harsh as it was an old coaching inn and therefore expected a little wear and tear however it's not that's it not clean. 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...

Very tired hotel, paper peeling off walls and ceilings, Fitments show no pride...... television aerial cable laying on floor, but as a white cable it had been clipped to skirting with black clips, unable to control bedside lamps except with switch by door. This place need money investing in it to compete with modern hotels such as...

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...

We stayed at this hotel whilst competing at Silverstone. The staff were, i must say very friendly but our overall experience was average at best. the rooms were basic but clean with old furniture.
