Stayed overnight before a family funeral the next day. The room initially seemed cold and dark but it soon warmed up once we adjusted the radiator and it was actually quite quaint with it's beams and floorboards. The bed was very comfy and had lovely soft pillows and sparkling white bed linen.We had afternoon tea by the open fire - perfect for a cold February afternoon! The evening meal was delicious and the staff overall were very attentive. Long wait for coffee (40 minutes) but this was due to our waitress at that particular point in the evening suddenly leaving.However another very charming young waitress reassured us that our coffee would be soon be on it's way - which it was.Breakfast was brilliant with a huge range of food to chose from the table plus a cooked breakfast if you so wished.Not cheap but certainly worth the money. We chose this hotel originally because of it's location in regard to the crematorium but would chose it again as a lovely place to stay in it's own right.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Crown in Old Amersham, situated at the end of the Metropolitan Line and 40 minutes from London, is the second in a family of modern day coaching inns recently renovated by the designer Ilse Crawford (other works include Babington House). The old timber building is situated in the centre of the historic market town, attracting locals, restaurant guests and night time travelers. The inn’s interior is made up of rural materials – from Ercol chairs made in High Wycombe to traditional plaster made from lime and horsehair. The ‘back room’ with its inglenook fire and view of the cobbled courtyard is perfect for private gatherings and feasting of up to 40, while the bar and restaurant area is the communal heartbeat of the inn. The kitchen serves seasonally inspired, locally sourced food with in-between times satisfied with home baked cheese scones and fruit cake with Cashel Blue while the main menus changes daily. ... more less
