Reviewed 14 September 2010

We loved this hotel which has recently been added on to the pub. Both are attractively furnished in a contemporary style with a pretty heated garden/terrace area outside. The welcome was warm and friendly and room stylish and comfortable. Fresh milk offered for our room which is always appreciated. The breakfasts were probably the best we have enjoyed and we have enjoyed quite a few! Very generous, appealing choice and well cooked. We had an excellent dinner on both nights in the restaurant which we thought good value. It was very busy in the evening and service could be a little slow at times as it is obviously extremely popular. Would definately go again and would not hesitate to recommend as a great place to stay.

For starters the restaurant. Staff are welcoming, professional and in abundance.The atmosphereis very relaxing. A mix of people, some with families some not. The design inside is so well thought out the noise is managed carefully. Their are intimate areas and larger areas for groups. The food was gorgeous, the wine selection amazing and the plates were hot! The hotel, which is quietly tucked away is luxurious. It's like staying in a 5* hotel in London but with the advantage of location and peace. Staff, like the restaurant are very friendly. A must if you you want a special break or a meal with friends. The whole design and ambiance have clearly been well thought out. Whoever owns this is sitting on a gold mine. I don't normally write on these sites but felt I had to in view of our experience. Wow!

I took my wife to The Crown for her birthday and, at the same time, was able to take advantage of the Sunday night special deal at The Crown - Dinner, bed and breakfast for £125.
The weather was great on arrival and suited the wonderful location - green fields in the distance.
The room we were allocated had a private patio and the biggest shower room I have seen. The staff were extremely friendly, both in the hotel and in the pub/restaurant itself (this despite the glass washer breaking down and all the bar staff manically washing up glasses while the restaurant was rammed for Sunday lunch)
The room was great - airy, quiet and with all the required facilities. The pub/resturant was well decorated and designed and the food was very good (both for dinner and breakfast). The restaurant was always busy.
I am not sure what the pricing is like without the special deal, but The Crown is a great place to stay and in a wonderful location - visit local villages such as Lavenham, Boxford, Kersey and Dedham.

Travelling with a group of friends , my wife and I found this a quite delightful place to stay. This was due largely to the excellent room, with great attention to detail, superb food and outstandingly helpful and friendly staff. Particular treats were the breakfasts - a wide range and excellent fruit in various guises - and the classily powerful and pleasing showers. Dinner, served in a room reserved for us, was also of very high quality, with faultless service.

A great place for exploring Constable country and the delightful villages all around.

We stayed here from monday to friday for a walking holiday, the location is just perfect for walking very open landscape to the rear. The staff in the hotel are most friendly and helpful, when we first arrived we were given a room next to reception and as my husband is a very light sleeper we asked if we could have a quieter room the lady at reception was most helpful and gave us a room at the rear of the property. The rooms are very nice but as previous reviews it was very warm we had the fan on all night and the window open. The food at breakfast was cooked perfectly but it would have been a much better service if there was more than one member of waiting staff as this made it a very slow progress and we wanted to get an early start a couple of days and this was not possible, i think it would be better if the cold food could be buffet style as in other hotels we have stayed in. All in all we had a lovely stay at the crown and would recommend to others especially for a walking break.

Our bedroom was spacious, the bed was really comfy, the bathroom was huge and had a proper shower screen so no flooding. The toiletries were lovely. The kettle etc were cleverly concealed in a cupboard with plenty of room to make tea and no fiddling about with trays etc. We ate in the restaurant and I had the best whole plaice I have ever eaten - I normally hate woosy flat fish, and would much rather have something meaty like cod, or halibut, but decided to give it a go, as I wanted something light (we were going the Great East Swim the next day) and was completely overwhelmed by how good it was. My husband enjoyed his pigeon but it was a bit heavy for a long early morning swim the next day. The reception staff were really helpful allowing us a late checkout and arranging breakfast in our room (fantastic homemade muesli and rustic toast), I've noted the other comments about service and although our service was fine, the young female waiting staff were quite offhand and really thought they were something special - they seemed more interested in flirting with the male members of staff - than serving.

The Crown is situated in the heart of the village. There is another pub across the road but doesn't seem to be much more so it's a lovely peaceful location. We arrived at about 4.00 pm, the bar area was still buzzing. Our rooms were very comfortable. As mentioned in a previous review the shower is luxurious. Dinner and breakfast were both superb. If I had one criticism I would say that they need more waiting staff for the restaurant. It appears that the waiting staff cover the bar & restaurant eating areas and they were stretched.

The breakfast was a particular highlight - the choice and quality was wonderful and a great start to the day.
