Beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean and pleasant decor. The service in the restaurant was excellent. Meals were tasty and well presented. The only small fault was the bedroom was very warm soon rectified by turning radiator down and opening a window

Me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were massive and had lots of character. The bed was massive and me and my husband said it was the most comfiest bed we have stayed on away from home. We had breakfast and a 3 course meal here and the food was delicious. We would definitely come back...

This was our first visit to Southwold and spent 2 nights at the Crown hotel. The guest car park was strewn with litter and had to be careful where we walked. On arrival there was no greeting, eye contact or conversation with the receptionist. We were informed of room number, where to go and asked to sign on dotted line....

We often visit Southwold, on this occasion we stayed at The Crown. We have also stayed at The Swan in the past, which is also very comfortable (sister hotels, I believe). We had a wonderful room which was very spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. On departure day, they allowed us to remain in the car park until...

We went early January to the Gin distilling experience at Adnams Brewery and Distillery, stayed overnight to celebrate my husbands upcoming birthday. Unfortunately he started to come down with a Cold on the morning and that rather dominated the break. It was a beautiful morning and we enjoyed a lunch on the pier [ reviewed under the Boardwalk restaurant}. After...

Group booking for 2 nights over New Year, our second New Year visit. Dinner on New Years Eve was pleasant but beef generally over cooked and tough. Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An exciting and intimate combination of small hotel, wine bar, pub and restaurant, Adnams Crown Hotel is always buzzing with a lively informality. The food is famously good and the wine list wonderful. You don't have to take our word for it - The Crown is an award winning hotel and was named Suffolk Dining Pub of the Year by the Good Pub Guide in 2013 and 2014. Situated on Southwold's High Street in Suffolk, The Crown is at the heart of activities, and just a few moments away from the seaside. Relax before lunch or dinner in our snug 'Back Bar' with a pint of Adnams famous beer. Free WiFi available throughout the hotel. ... more   less
