Would it be possible to make part of the hotel for residents only? Our stay was spoilt by the unbearable noise Friday and Saturday night made by local drinkers. There was no room anywhere for our group to have a 'quite' coffee after a meal. The residents lounge, bar and patio areas were full to capacity, we even had trouble getting through the entrance to return to our room. Told by a staff member that even the private garden was not available for hotel guests. Shame as your hotel was in a perfect position for touring the area. Otherwise we would look forward to staying again but not while the noise problem remains.
Thank you for your constructive feedback. As much as I sympathise with your concerns and observations, Hall and Woodhouse Houses are very much the centre of the community and without the support of our local guests as well as our residential guests the Crown wouldn’t be as successful as it is today.
In 2016 we will be undergoing a refurbishment, reconfiguring the layout of the ground floor to include separate entrances to the bar and main hotel/restaurant therefore creating a more distinct separation between the two areas and creating a larger coffee area.
