“Excellent place”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We've just stayed here and it was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. From the minute we were shown to our lovely sized room by the manager which was a great touch until we left the stay was ace. The breakfasts were super and we also ate in twice and each time the quality was outstanding . All staff were friendly and eager to help and a testament to what is being achieved here . A great choice of beers, lovely bar/lounge/courtyard to drink in and central location merely supported our great opinion. Our room itself was lovely with bottled water delivered daily and a great variety of hot drinks provided too. This is a hidden gem and unbelievable value for money. We will be back and have recommended it already to many. Excellent.

Room Tip: We had a quiet room which was bang on but all looked great

We didn't stay but we had a drink and sit in this pub which boasts a lot of character and features that make it a truly lovely English pub and we would look at staying next time. There are plenty of nice seat, lovely in summer as it was for us, but a nice ambiance for winter as well.

We stayed at The Crown as a family, and were very impressed. Wasn't expecting much from a family room, and was pleasantly surprised at how nice and spacious it was. Seperate double bedroom and then a sitting area that was converted into the childrens room with 2 beds, plus the bathroom, perfect. The food was great too, exceeded our expectations :) Will definitley be returning in the near future! Staff were friendly yet very professional.

I just has one night at the crown but wish I could have stayed longer. Without a doubt I will go back. Rooms are beautiful decorated and comfortable, staff lovely, location fantastic and the bar and restaurant really high quality and good value.

this is an idiosyncratic experience; first impressions are of a friendly village hostelry in the best sense of the word , then we were led down long expanses of corridor to a split level room of surprising comfort and elegance. Back to the bar, past some bizarre paintings and a curved internal window which makes little functional sense...good wines and beers, deep leather sofas, comfortable and faded elegant; shabby chic perhaps? Good breakfast..though no local kippers.

Thank you very much for your review, I am very pleased that you found your room elegant and comfortable. We are lucky enough to occupy a wonderful historic building which has evolved over the centuries, retaining many features, and that unusual curved window, which does look rather odd where it is, was actually once on an external wall. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and do hope you will come again.

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting relations. Stayed in room 7 and it was wonderful. The bed was so comfortable (my husband said it was best nights sleep other than in his own bed) and both the room and bathroom very spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast was yummy, we had the haddock with poached eggs. The only reason I've not put excellent was because there were painters in and scaffolding outside our room which did spoil it a little and we still paid full price.

The Crown in Framlingham is a charming building that oozes character and has taken on the owners' quirky tastes with aplomb. The bar, lounge areas and dining room are inviting with a relaxing ambience. The atmosphere is enhanced by the fact that it is more than just a hotel for tourists but it is the hub the community. In the mornings there is a buzz about the place and you see the people who work in Fram enjoying a drink in the evening.

The Crown has a very good choice of beers and wines. The breakfast caters for all tastes; from those on a health drive to those who want to indulge. The menu in the dining room also offers a la carte and a pub menu.

The beds are very comfortable. The hospitality tray is of a high quality with 'Tea Pigs' and fresh coffee. The homemade biscuits are delicious.

The rooms were immaculate.

The staff are courteous and professional - nothing is too much trouble. I wish to add that in general I found Suffolk folk to be very friendly and polite.

A warm welcome awaits you at the Crown. The owners have got the balance right between respecting the inn's old world charms and injecting some of their own personality.

Excellent value for money.
