This is a lovely place to stay, peaceful village with interesting surrounds. Rooms in the hotel or chalets in the grounds, both are comfortable. Great place for dining out if staying in the area, a well fun establishment with excellent food. Terrace is great for drinks with a lovely view of the ancient castle.

My husband and I have been visiting The Crown & Castle for many years and have always greatly enjoyed our stays there. The staff are welcoming and friendly, but also highly trained and professional. The hotel in general and the bedrooms in particular are very comfortable, beautifully decorated and always spotlessly clean. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in...

We have been coming to the Crown and Castle for many years, and it never fails to make us feel at home. From the initial welcome at Reception to the meals, the bedrooms, the view of the river and the Ness - everything is perfect. For the most part we have been on a package with breakfast and dinner. Sometimes...

We stayed for the bank holiday weekend, using the Crown and Castle deal which included a trip to the Ness, which we really enjoyed the last time we went. This time we stayed in the suite (normally we take room 31, but alas, sob sob! it wasn't available). Lovely rooms, wonderfully comfortable bed and an amazing view to the pagodas...

Main course guinea fowl could be eaten with a spoon so tender, mine was hake with mussels and divine potatoes, the sauce so good I asked for more bread(something I never do). Dessert was icecream (hazelnut and honeycombe) and an Italian lemon tart as...

We booked in advance on the morning of our evening visit. We were met on arrival by a member of staff who took our coats and escorted us to the pre- drinks area,where we ordered pre-dinner drinks and browsed the menu. We ordered and then we were escorted to our table once it was ready and the wine was chilled....

Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your dining experience from start to finish and have taken the time to say so. Not so sure about the 'rich and famous' bit, though – don't think we're quite reverential enough! Thank you again, and we hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Stayed for Easter and it was fabulous, apart from not finding the bunny! It doesn't matter whether you visit at a busy time like Easter or New Year or at quieter times, the friendly welcome, service and food are always consistently excellent. Tim, Stefan, Sue, Bill and all the staff always make our stay memorable. Lovely coincidence to see friends...
