Did an overnight stay for our anniversary. The bed was amazingly comfortable. But a bit cramped to walk around in the room. Lovely 3 course meal and a very handsome and plentiful breakfast. Overall a lovely overnight stay.

We have stayed at the Crown a few times now in the summer and winter. No matter what time of year you stay a warm welcome is certain. The hotel is smart with a good attention to detail and the individual rooms are superb. The fixtures and fittings in the rooms are carefully considered and high end creating a superior...

We stayed at the Crown for just one night at the end of December last year, with our two young daughters and cocker spaniel. We had a great stay - the family room was perfect, it felt like children and dogs were truly welcomed, not just permitted and all the staff were very friendly. Friends and their children joined us...

Visted the Crown several times while visiting Wells. We walked in without a reservation and were seated straight away. The service was very good and the food was excellent as was the wine. Just what we needed after a long gruelling journey. Would recommend.

Stopped for a rest break and light lunch after a brisk beach walk. Very comfortable, cosy place. Nice comfy sofas and chairs infront of the wood burner. Just had a sandwich with mug of soup and was pleased with both. Can recommend.

We had 3 dog friendly rooms for a Christmas limbo break. Rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped (especially with an outdoor cooper bath and flapjack snacks!). Dog beds, towels and treats were a lovely touch and greatly appreciated, as was the cooked sausages for them at breakfast! The staff were attentive and very welcoming. Great service at check-in, in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Crown Hotel - the perfect place to retreat, relax and refresh in beautiful north Norfolk Big blue skies, sandy beaches stretching away into eternity, desolate salt marshes rich in wildlife, picturesque villages and quaint seaside resorts - north Norfolk is the undoubted jewel in East Anglia's glittering crown. And if you're looking to experience the natural wonders offered by the north coast of one of England's remotest counties, you need cast your eyes no further than The Crown Hotel. A former coaching inn, the hotel is tucked away on the edge of a tranquil tree-lined green in the fishing port of Wells-next-the-Sea. Recently refurbished to enhance its existing historic features, whilst still retaining a warm and welcoming ambience, The Crown has 12 luxury en-suite bedrooms. Each is equipped with a flat-screen TV and DVD player and uniquely and individually decorated to create a warm and welcoming home-from-home atmosphere. The hotel has two family suites with separate children's rooms and baby-monitoring facilities, and in some rooms you can even have your dog to stay. Downstairs, guests and diners can select from a sumptuous and varied menu which makes superb use of the finest and freshest seasonal produce, courtesy of the hotel's proprietor, New Zealand-born chef Chris Coubrough and his kitchen team. Whether you choose to eat in The Crown's front restaurant, the spacious orangery or one of our two lounge rooms, you're sure of a culinary experience that will linger long on the tongue, and even longer in the memory. ... more   less
