We stayed at the Crown to fit in with a visit to Kiki Dee concert at Langholm at the Arts Centre, and had a very enjoyable stay. Comfortable beds, lovely bedding and fluffy towels. The room was a bit out of the way at the top of the building but for the price we paid it was excellent. We had a meal in the bar, fillet steak, pepper sauce and home made chips, fantastic! Highly recommended. A good breakfast the next morning, we left very happy with our visit to the Crown.

Was visiting relatives in the town and went to the crown hotel for the Sunday roast. What a plateful, lovely beef, Yorkshire, roast and mashed potatoes, peas, carrots and cauliflower cheese, it cost 7.95 which was very good value.

Having spent a week here during a fishing trip this place is clearly a local's public bar first, restaurant second and a hotel third. The staff were very friendly throughout and the bar, if not to everybody's taste with 2 Sky sports channels and a juke box all going at the same time, was buzzing. The restaurant served basic, but reasonably priced, food. The hotel room was only £40 a night for a single occupant including breakfast so you cannot expect the Ritz. The rating given reflects what I would expect for that cost. There was no heating on in the rooms except one evening when a resident specifically requested it. The room was only serviced twice in the week with the result that after 4 days with the same towel, you felt you were wetter after drying yourself than you were when you got out of the shower. A television was provided in the room, but every time you turned it on it wouldn't work without 10 minutes of fiddling with the the aerial booster. After which you had to move carefully in the room or it would go off. When reported to the manager, he just commented that the cause would be a loose connection - very astute! About 50% of the lights in the restaurant and hotel were not working, suggesting either a lack of care or a lack of money. There were several other unprofessional 'incidents' which suggested that the hotel and its guests were an inconvenience rather than the mainstay of the business.

Stayed overnight whilst viewing property in the area. Staff were very friendly and made us feel at home from the off. Soft furnishings were well chosen and made the rooms stylishly comfortable. The general décor is a little below par but clean and functional. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant, menu not huge but makes the most of local produce, well cooked and presented and accompanied by a very reasonably priced wine list (had a bottle of Peter Lehmann 2010 Shiraz for £16 that was one of the best wines I have tasted for a long time - see if they have any left). This hotel is of an age where one could expect dim, dingy and dour. However, the current owners are clearly making every effort to make it bright warm and welcoming, and they are succeeding. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main street are a little noisy but this is a quiet Borders town, not London.

We recently found ourselves in need of a place to stay in Langholm, a small town in the Scottish Borders known as a 'burgh' and also known colloquially as the "Muckle Toon"
We were going to be visiting Langholm to see a friend of ours play there at the local theatre with his band and decided to make a night of it with friends and enjoy a meal and drinks as well as the concert.

I turned to the internet to look for accomodation in Langholm and I decided upon The Crown Hotel, situated right on the High Street in Langholm and a five minute walk from the venue.

Although you can book this hotel by phoning direct, I discovered I could also book this hotel via LateRooms.com at the same price.
The price of a double room was £60 per night (assuming two sharing) with breakfast included. A friend of ours booked a single room and paid £40 for the room and breakfast

The Crown Hotel is the oldest Inn in the area and offers ten en-suite bedrooms. We found it very easy to reach, just approx 18 miles from Carlisle by car. As we drove into the town we found the hotel situated on the right hand side of the road. There did not appear to be a car park, but there was a large lay-by on the opposite side of the road where parking was allowed. Unfortunately there were no spaces when we arrived, so whilst my partner pulled in on the roadside I went inside to ask where we could park.

As you walk inside the hotel there is bar area as this hotel is also a pub and restaurant for locals and visitors too. I explained to the man behind the bar that we wished to check in but would like to know if there was somewhere we could park our car. He informed me that we could park in the lay-by but I explained there were no spaces. He then informed me about a car park down by the river, but to be honest the thought of leaving our car out of sight in a car park by the river overnight was not too appealing.
We drove down to have a look and although it was quite picturesque by the river, we all agreed we did not want to leave the car there and it was quite a walk back to the hotel. We drove back into town and found some parking spaces beside a shop just along from the hotel. The guy inside the shop was very helpful giving us a permit to display and explained we should keep an eye on the lay-by outside the hotel as we should be able to get a space eventually, as cars come and go all the time and usually by early evening there were spaces.
Sure enough, spaces became available and we moved our car to the lay-by shortly after.

Checking into the hotel was simple enough. We gave our names to the man behind the bar and after asking one of us to fill in some details on a card, he gave us keys to our rooms and then showed us to our rooms upstairs. He asked what time we would like breakfast in the morning. We asked what time it was served till and he replied " whatever time you like" with a laugh. After a couple of jokes about 4pm being suitable, we decided we would have breakfast after checkout which was 10am. I personally would have preferred a later check out time than 10am but didn't like to ask if this was possible.

Our double room was very warm on entering. Heated by a radiator under the window, we found it a little too warm and tried to turn it down but were unable to do so, so we simply opened the window instead and soon it was a comfortable temperature. Although it was December and we were thankful the heating was on, it was very warm in the room and we had to leave the window open all night.

The room was clean and quite cosy looking with a double bed, bedside cabinets, wardrobe, dressing table with mirror and chair taking up much of the available space but leaving enough room to walk around the bed etc. A small flat screen TV was mounted on the wall and included some Sky channels. The en suite bathroom was also very clean and housed a shower, sink and toilet. Some shower gel and handwash were provided as well as fluffy towels. A hairdryer was placed in one of the drawers and a tray with kettle, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits sat on the dressing table.
The bathrom was quite small but adequate as was the shower cubicle. Our friend who stayed in a smaller single room however, actually had a larger bathroom! Although it would have been nice to have a little more space in the bathroom, we managed fine so it wasn't really an issue.

After freshening up, we decided to go down to the bar for a drink and a meal in the restaurant before going to the concert. The restaurant was small but cosy and homely-looking and we were seated at a table and welcomed by a lovely lady for whom nothing was any trouble. We ordered turkey dinners and each had a lovely meal for £8 each. We had the restaurant to ourselves at first and then a party of 8 arrived for a dinner reservation. All were attended to promptly and we didn't wait long for meals or drinks.
The restaurant serves up good home cooked food, using local and Scottish produce wherever possible and there were a number of meals on the menu from burgers to roasts. The woman who served us was very friendly and gave us directions to the theatre, even offering to come outside and point the way if we were not sure. Eating in the restaurant was an enjoyable experience and we finished off with a drink in the bar in front of an open fire before leaving for the concert.

After arriving back at the hotel later that evening, we enjoyed another drink in the bar. At midnight the bar was closing but the man told us there was another bar out in the back courtyard adjoined to the hotel. We went round to have a look and the bar was housed in what appeared to be a large outbuilding. It was a Saturday evening and music was playing and the dance floor was pretty full. It seemed to attract the younger locals and also had a barbeque outside until 1am which I thought was a great idea and quite a quirky thing to have in December. By this time however, we were feeling tired and decided to go back to our rooms.

We slept well in the very comfortable beds and although we could hear a little noise at first from the bar due to the window being open in our room and overlooking the courtyard, it didn't last long and did not spoil our sleep, although if retiring to bed earlier it may have been an issue for some.

The next morning we were served breakfast in the restaurant and after helping ourselves to juice and cereals, we were served coffee and a full English breakfast complete with a gigantic sausage. The same woman who served us the night before appeared and asked us all about the concert and spent time chatting as well as asking if we wanted more toast, coffee etc. We couldn't fault anything about the breakfast or service and felt very welcome overall at this hotel. It wasn't five star by any means, but was very clean and comfortable with plenty of character, along with lovely food and great service from the friendly staff and therefore we will be happy to stay here again.
