We held our wedding reception at The Old Rose & Crown following a traditional church service on 31st March 2012. The Old Rose & Crown was just fabulous. I cannot fault it at all. We had the most wonderful, amazing day. Marie was brilliant thought our planning which lasted 18months. Her experience was invaluable. The staff serving the wedding breakfast and evening buffet also were fab, very attentive and freindly. Andrew was available all evening until we went to bed after the guests had gone - again he was friendly and attentive. we could not have asked for a better day. we are SO GLAD we chose them as our venue. Great price too especially for what you get for your money, others cannot compare!
The food was delicious( veg soup, sausage and mash, chocolate fudge cake) and everyone commented on this, there was also plenty and no one was hungry!
The rooms were great - clean & comfortable. everyone who stayed said the same. Likewise breakfast was plentiful and service friendly.
We had a brilliant, amazing day - our wedding was just how we wanted it, friendly and relaxed and for everyone to have fun. we have had so many comments from our guests saying what a great wedding it was and how much they enjoyed our special day.
I could go on praising! Thankyou so much for a perfect day and making it just how we wanted it!
Thankyou, thankyou....
Amy & Tom

My son had his wedding and reception here on the 17th March. The venue was lovely as was the wedding, it was formal yet informal and had a great atmosphere and Marie set out the tables etc for the wedding meal in a beautiful way.

The wedding meal was served efficiently and was great as was the evening buffet. All the staff were friendly and helpful too.

The rooms were large, warm and comfortable, the bed was especially comfy and didnt want to get out. But the full english breakfast was waiting so ....

The whole experience here was one I would recommend to everyone, the hotel, the food the staff and the lickey hills, all fantastic, what more could you ask for?

I travel to Birmingham to teach for Cadbury's quite a lot. I live in Doncaster, therefore, I need to find a base local to the factory. I have tried quite a few of the local hotels and can say they were not the best. So I decided to travel further a field in my quest to find a good nights sleep.

The Old Rose and Crown was pleasent, a good size room, clean and tidy, and a very comfortable bed. The staff were pleasent and attentive. The only downside was the lack of connectivity to the internet.

As a businessman I need to be on-line all of the time. I found myself using the mobile phone to tether to my laptop to get on-line. This was a problem as there was poor coverage on the 3 Network and therefore, the signal would drop out (very frustrating).

Would I stay again? Yes.

Thank you.

Room Tip: They have internet in public areas. Ask for a room near to the modem. You might get lucky and pic...

My Daughters wedding Venue was held at this Hotel, from the start, the friendly and helpful greeting we received was second to none, everything was organized to ensure that the ceremony went smoothly. Which it did, there attention to detail and willingness to to help was excellent. The food was of an extremely high standard, and the drinks were reasonably priced. The Room (02) was both comfortable, warm and welcoming, with fruit, tea of Coffey on hand the on-suite was immaculately clean as was the whole suite. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to family or friends.

Room Tip: Room 2 has a wonderful view, and is both quiet and comfortable.
