“best short break”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

I can say without fear of contradiction, repetition,condescention or even condensation,that this was a wonderful short break.We were greeted in a very friendly way when we arrived.Shown to our room very quickly.The room was a good size,clean and with all the things you need for a short break.There is a lovely bar at the hotel,with a good selection of drinks and also some local beers, (stroud, etc) lovely jubbly as del boy would say.The weather helped.We spent every evening in the hotel's garden, having our evening meal.We could have dined in the dining room, which was very nice but the weather was just too good to be sitting inside.The meals we had over three nights were delicious, even the simplest of fish and chips,was probably the best I have ever eaten. My compliments to the chef as they say. And, my compliments to all the staff and management at this great hotel. My wife and I will stay here again, (if possible) when we visit the cotswolds again.

My wife and I are regular visitors to the area and know The Crown Inn as an excellent pub with good real ale…try the “Laurie Lee”…fantastic meals and attentive service to match. No matter the season, Simon and Gemma extend a warm welcome and fine dining throughout the year.
In July 2011, we stayed in their hotel accommodation for the first time. We were not disappointed and could not have been afforded better service. The prices were reasonable and extremely competitive for the area. On our second evening, a group of Morris Dancers arrived to entertain the customers. They were superb and blended seamlessly into the rich tapestry of a Cotswold vista with the sun setting over the valley towards nearby Chalford.
Well done to Simon and Gemma for their hard work and excellent staff ethos....The Crown is a true jewel in the Cotswolds.

Having a 16th Birthday for our teen we wanted a good meal. The Crown Inn provided that (and some ) - staff were excellant, friendly but not sickeningly so - service was prompt and with my request for the candles I had brought with me to be put into teens dessert, they did without the bat of an eyelid as if it was an everyday ask( unlike many other places we have been too). Other guests joined in when we sang Happy Birthday at dessert time - such a friendly relaxed atmosphere, it was all just so natural and comfortable ( yes, the teen nearly died with embarrassment) We did book for a Friday night but there was space should we have decided to have just turned up @ 7.30pm. Menu choice wasn't extensive but what they did offer catered for our needs and was varied and what they did do, they cooked extremely well! They offer certain items in child portions too for those with younger children who have smaller appetites. Husband was pleased with the choice of Ales available.
Overall, a wonderful gem of a place and we will be going back :)

The hotel was nice and the pub served excellent food. Breakfast was great. I had room #4 on the ground floor which is next to the entry to the hotel. If you were a light sleepy the slamming of the outside door could be annoying.

We stayed here 3 nights and travelled to the Ryder Cup one day. Had stayed about four years earlier. Rooms have been completley renovated, and the Inkeepers -Gemma and Simon really "get it".
Great service, good food, and they really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They have also gone the distance and have a great staff who is well trained and empowered to do whatever is necessary to accomodate their guests.
It is in the middle of nowhere---but boy is it scenic. Great walks, lot's of wildlife.
Can't wait to go back. Know the lamb dishes and a well pulled pint await.--Cheers

As a regular business traveller, jaded by identikit chain hotels, I'd recommend the Crown for a different and wholly enjoyable experience. Booking by phone was easy, reception on arrival was attentive and friendly, while the room, housed in a separate building, was clean, spacious and comfortable. The evening menu was reasonably priced and all the food that came out of the kitchen (including my excellent soup and steak) looked plentiful and appetising. For a Monday evening, the pub was pleasantly busy, with a good mixture of locals and visitors. I tried the four well-kept draught ales in turn from my table in the beer garden overlooking the beautiful wooded valley.
I slept well in this rural tranquility. Breakfast was generous and freshly cooked.The standard of service was excellent throughout, and the stay was good value.
In years of business travel, this was one of the nicest stays I've had, but The Crown would be excellent for a leisure break too.

Having spent weeks on end in high end hotels the Crown Inn in Frampton Mansell was exactly what we were looking for.

Execeptional in every way - I only wish that I could pass this message to everyone venturing into the beautiful English countryside.

If you are looking for somewhere with atmophere and personality, while still being immaculately clean, this is the one for you. The staff-owners are lovely, the food (both breakfast and the evening meal) was fantstic and the accommodation itself was clean, spacious, quiet and very comfortable. The current owners have apparently been there three years, and in our opinion, have done a wonderful job of creating the perfect english countryside experience
