“A Crown in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We have just returned from staying at the Crown of Crucis. This was a real find. The hotel is well located for exploring the Cotswolds and is only a 5 minute drive from Cirencester. The hotel is located next to the Ampney Brook. The rooms are well equipped quiet and excellent value for money. The food is well prepared and well priced and the service is first class - all staff give the impression that they are really happy to be there and that each guest is special to them.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back face Ampney Brook.

We stayed at this hotel during a visit to the Cotswolds and really are glad we did. Our stay was very pleasant all made possible by very helpful and good natured staff, reasonable price, great restaurant and for us well situated. The grounds are relaxing and away from the buzz of the city.

Dear staff at the Crown of Crucis

I am writing to thank you very much for the hospitality and excellent service over our two day stay in Rooms 11 and 18. Everything was perfect – the setting, the rooms, the service, the food and the price.

I’d be very grateful also if you could convey my personal thanks to your Rumanian waitress – we didn’t get her name – she was friendly and welcoming, efficient and helpful and her smiling service made our dinner with you on the Friday might a really lovely experience.

All the very best and I’m sure I will stay with you again

Room Tip: Rooms facing the little river and the cricket field have a better view

An Inn/Hotel of deception!! A relatively remote location, however, on a main road, with fast traffic rushing past. The rooms are at the back so relatively quiet. Another deceptive Cotswold Inn, from the outside you would expect the rooms inside to be old and traditional. On the contrary they are more like that of a motel. Don't expect much from a room. However, the food and service makes up for it. Excellent food and service. Good wine. Definitely worth a visit.

Dear BettyB

Thank you for your review, with regards to the comment we advertise on all websites that all our rooms are in a Courtyard and would not class our bedrooms or hotel as a Motel, we have a lovely mixture of Standard and Deluxe Rooms offering a Cotswold feel and a more modern touch.

We are glad you enjoyed the service and the dishes in our Bar/ Restaurant and I have passed your comments on to the team.

We do hope you will return.

Kind Regards

Hugh

My partner and I have just returned today after a cricket weekend away and stayed at this fantastic hotel/inn as a base, the rooms staff and service was excellent, lovely breakfasts and evening meals in the bar, we stayed in room 11 which is an executive room overlooking the river and local cricket ground, I could not have asked for more for my partners birthday treat, would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning at a later date, nearly forgot the function room looked beautifully dressed up for a wedding if you are looking for a venue. WELL DONE GUYS KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK.

I stayed here in a twin room with my friend last night. What a gorgeous place this is and what a wonderful and peaceful location. Easy to find and just outside of Cirencester. Check in was simple and swift and the guy showed us to our room from reception. A lovely twin bedded spacious room, spotlessly clean and what a view outside the window looking out onto the stream with ducks passing by. You feel like you are miles away from anywhere but you are very centrally located for the Cotswolds. Staff here very welcoming and friendly and the food in the bar delicious. Breakfast was also fabulous with a lovely selection of fruit/cereals and cooked. I cannot fault this hotel and will certainly recommend it and I want to go back and stay again soon. A real gem of a place.
