Standing proudly on Southwold’s High Street, The Crown is at the heart of the town and just moments away from the beach. Something of a Suffolk food institution, The Crown has always offered outstanding quality food and wine in a wonderfully informal setting. The wine list boasts a tantalising range of wines by the glass, one doesn’t have to have a bottle. It also showcases a range of well kept and award-winning Adnams beers and spirits. Our 14 bedrooms are all stylish and full of character, offering a high standard of accommodation and a comfortable, memorable stay in Southwold.

Lovely hotel and village. Excellent staff and a great Chef. Not suitable for anyone who cannot handle a lot of stairs. Location of Hotel is excellent as it is only five minutes from the Beach and is inn the centre of the village with a host of shops just outside the hotel.

Ease of parking was a real plus. Needed guidance as to the heating system over our 24 hour stay. Wonderful location in town. Well cooked breakfast and service. Love generous gifts left in our bedroom which worked well as we loved the Adnams shop too!

We had a lovely stay at The Crown hotel in Southwold. Room was very clean with modern furnishings. Generous breakfast with local produce. It has a car park at rear of hotel which is good for Southwold. Definitely would go back and recommend to others.

"Room 10 can be set up as a twin; is 2nd floor and quiet away from car park and kitchen"
"Note - no ground floor rooms"
