“shabby but chique?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

This rooms were a little tired looking but clean. Breakfasts were good and staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Not much to choose between the rooms with four poster beds all much the same. Double bed rooms quit...

Having read some bad reviews, I wanted to share my experience of this hotel. We stayed in a 4 poster room which was comfortable, if a little dated and tired, it was still good value for money. The pool was a lovely temperature and very quiet. We had originally planned to stay for 3 nights but on the second night, there was a function on for 70 people in the function room below our bedroom with live music. We decided to leave the hotel and go elsewhere as we wanted a quiet night and the hotel staff were very accomodating and happy to refund us (as we had to pay upfront) so was dealt with very easily. Hotel is very conveniently situated in the Cotswolds, would happily stay there again (checking first if there is a function on!)

This was the worst stay i have had in years, if not ever. On arrival we were not even met with so much as a good evening or how was your trip, in fact we had to find the manager ourselves to check in.
We were not shown to our room - minor but warning sign re staff well being & lack of care!
The fire alarm went off early morning - not everyone evacuated & we were told it was a false alarm - very shoddy what if it had been a real fire.
The sound proofing was awful in the room & we were kept awake by some phone or alarm most of the night.
Price was 50% off i e £80 - soooo not worth it.
No parking facilities at all.
Definitely would not recommend it to anyone!!!!!!

Having lived in Chipping Norton for many years, we deliberately chose to stay at the Crown & Cushion, thinking it was still the best hotel in town. Wrong!
The fire alarm went off on the Sunday morning, at about 9.00am. We went outside and saw four couples. What a difference when we then went in to breakfast. The dining room was full of people, none of whom had vacated the room when the alarm bell sounded. The staff had not ensured that everyone was outside at the assembly point. There was no-one around outside to check that guests had vacated their rooms or to take a roll-call.
In the room, the toilet wouldn't flush & the inside of the cistern was absolutely filthy.
The room was cold and even after asking for it to be heated, it was still cold.
The blind in the bathroom fell off its supports.
The television kept pixcellating, when it did switch on.
The bedside lights swung down when I tried to adjust them, as their fixings were loose.
A knob from the wardrobe drawer was on the floor and the information book was falling apart, with several loose pages.
Although asking several times for the Wifi code, the receptionist was most unhelpful and suggested I went down to reception to use my computer.
I asked to speak to the manager at 9.30am and was told she usually came in at about 10.00am. AT 10.30am I was told she was still not there, although the receptionist kept looking at the curtained window to the manager's office! Eventually she gave me the manager's name.
I was ashamed to think that this hotel could be seen as representing the standards of Chipping Norton.

We were dismayed by many of the reviews of this hotel, but after staying there for three nights we thought that some of the guests had been very unreasonable, and others had probably been unlucky with their timing and fellow guests - conclusion: don't stay there during a crowded summer holiday season or over a bank holiday week end. We found all the staff friendly and helpful, the food good quality and servings generous, and the room (a 'four poster') a good size with adequate storage space. Yes, the car park was rather cramped, especially when some larger cars managed to occupy two spaces, and yes, the breakfast sausages could have qualified as 'vegetarian', but we enjoyed our stay very much, especially the free use of the well-heated pool which we had entirely to ourselves, and will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't stay during the height of the tourist season!
