“May holiday”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Visited here on two evenings as we were staying in Lynton and wanted a short walk after our evening meal. Very friendly welcome from staff and locals. Their ham egg and chips is really good and excellent value. I had fish the second evening which was again good. I didn't notice lots of local youngsters being a problem and it was half term so you would expect them to be around later. I would definately go here again.

Stayed one night while on the North Coastal Path trek with 6 other friends. It is convenient to the path, clean, welcoming and the bar was filled with rustic locals, some of whom may well be benefit refugees from London.Decided to eat elsewhere in town, but had an excellent cooked breakfast the following morning. Despite some reservations about how noisy it might be at night, proved the rooms were far enough away from the bar to be quiet. Room was comfortable, a bit spartan, but everything worked and was clean. If you don't ask for much, you wont be disappointed. but this is not the spot for a romantic weekend, but good for muddy boots.

Room Tip: not over the bar

Second time myself and family have stayed at the crown first time being in February.
Its a great place to stay with a very friendly welcome, the pub, rooms and bar staff are full of character the food is proper pub grub and the Hotel is centrally located in Lynton making it ideal for walkers, will i stay again? yes without a doubt, down to earth good value friendly hotels with a child friendly pub are hard to find.

I've avoided reviewing the Crown in the past, because I would have been rating the landlord and not the pub: I basically avoided this place for a couple of years having been several times and not received the friendliest welcome, shall we say (read old reviews if you need detaisl!!)... However, the new "owners" have really improved the place. We had a meal for the first time for at least two years, it was perfectly good pub grub. Tribute beer is always good, and barman Joey is an absolute gem (don't get your head turned by reading this stuff, Joey! Just go on being yourself!). A huge improvement, and thank the Lord, because the murals, and the fact that this is a real pub, are a must on a visit to Lynton. Excellent two-person group on the Saturday, too.

We stayed only for one night but had a great stay.The location is picturesque. The hotel lies in the village centre.A great band played in the bar.The room was spacious enough and quiet. Breakfast was fine.

Twin Room was big with lots of room and recently redecorated ... bed a little hard for my liking but then I realise you cant please everybody there.

Room also clean and tidy, only problem I found with the room was the noise in the street late at night ... but I am a light sleeper.

Breakfast was good, Evening food was also good although a little limited, most things served with chips.

Parking was good ... once you suss out how to get there :-)

Overall I would use again if I didnt have a room that fronted onto the street.

Room Tip: Rooms looking out on the Street are noisy at the weekend

Very good value. Family run and very caring. Family room double bunk for kids and main room with a double. A bit dated but very comfortable despite the ensuite down a steep step in a corner. Pub and pub food very good. Owners there since August and are starting to do up the bedrooms, the price reflects this. Breakfast is continental except at weekends.Owners could not have been more helpful. Would go again.
