“Quality pub/real ale Accomodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

I would like to thank Richard & Petra for there excellent hospitality on my recent stay.
I was v lucky to stumble upon the crown inn @ Benson Nr Wallingford,when Petra answered the phone on the previous day i felt welcome immediately,she said there was a room for the following evening but it was a dbl,for which i could hv this room at £30,when i arrived the follwing morning *8.30am 10 hours early this was not a problem and i was asked to take a seat in the bar/restaurant until the room had been cleaned,also the Ale is good here and although i didnt eat in the evening the food looked gd,ps breakfask was v gd but could have been larger,
So having watched the Rugby world cup match my room was ready for me
,thanks again

Mr C Ingham

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

Was a slightly disappointing stay. Our bathroom clearly hadn't been cleaned for a while as I found a mould covered soap label on the shower taps and hair around the sink. The room was tired and dated, beds were comfortable but the carpets a bit grubby. Tea bags etc are just left uncovered on the dressing table which isn't every hygienic. There was no hairdyer or full length mirror.

There is no breakfast provided and lunch is only served between 12pm - 2pm which is a shame as more flexible food times would have been appreciated as there are limited places to eat in Benson.

Cheap accommodation but for a reason, would ask if the rooms have been refurbished first before you book.
