“Not that great”
Reviewed 7 April 2011

Maybe there is a second part to this hotel that I did not see, but personally I would not stay again. I was in one of the 'stables' overlooking the carpark.
The very friendly & helpful lady on reception apologised for the room before even opening the door, but that still doesn't change the dirty carpet or funny smell. The bathroom was alright, but again would benefit from deep cleaning to the bath and shower. The duvet was thin, the pillows flat and the matress springy and cheap.
At £45 with a very tasty breakfast it would be fine if you're not fussy about cleanliness, but I am and consequently I did not enjoy my stay.
I have given one star for the nice staff & one for the very nice breakfast. Premier Inn all the way in future.

Friendly staff,Good and prompt service.Spacious Parking.Clean and tidy.Fantastic food.Ideal for short term stay.2 miles from Rail station/Down center. You get more than you 'd expect from an Old style Inn.If you belong to the guest type that stays indoors using saunas, gyms and other facilities of the sort , look for somewhere else.

Reviewed 7 July 2008

The Crown in Stratton is a lovely old fashioned English hotel with it's original features and excellent food i highly reccomend it . I stayed for the night and the prices are very reasonable . The rooms are very well equipped and with a safe ample car park it was a good find on my part . The location is brilliant close to the A419 and the M4 . I organised a party for 20 and the service was brilliant and the food was good very hot and plentyfull. I highly reccomend this old english pub/hotel for any occasion . even the kids could let off steam in the garden which was brilliant . Again highly reccomended keep up the good work chaps . Very happy all round will definately be returning .

  • Liked — The period features of the pub
  • Disliked — nothing everything was excellent
