Why I have rated this as a disappointing poor:-

No deviation on breakfast, ie please can I have scrambled egg - reply "no" also one glass of juice and that was it (plus tea and coffee)

A hook on the door for clothes and that is it!

Nice to have entertainment however no so great if you go to bed early and want a good nights sleep - might aswell have stayed downstairs

Staff in jogging bottoms and t-shirt serving breakfast, not very professional

We never put anything "on the bill" or "on the room" so we were surprised when we had a bill at the end of the stay, we advised them we had all ready paid and they accepted that

Shower was an automatic temperature and could not choose if I wanted it hotter or colder - didn't understand that one?

The majority of staff did their job however I felt a lack of warmth and friendliness with them considering it is a customer service role

We did a groupon deal and did feel that we were "the groupon couple" as the "normal" evening menu had lovely covers and our menu was just a piece of paper, no chance of paying extra for an upgrade with the meal, you were on groupon and that's the menu you get, on the plus side the food we did have was good.

All these points could easily be put right and the place would be a little gem

If I had paid full price I would be extremely disappointed

In view of the above I would not recommend or return - sorry!

Popped into the Crown for an impromptu bar meal after a few pints in Cartmel. Had both starter and mains, and some amuse bouche in between as an added bonus. The service was fantastic and the food was spot on in all the right places (thick fillet of fish, pork cheek fell apart). I've paid around £100 for a meal of a similar standard down the road in Windermere, yet this meal came in under £30, with a pint. Very pleased.

+Exceptionally friendly staff
+Fantastic food
+Great location as a base for walking etc
+very clean

- on our second night there was a live band downstairs in the bar, it went on until 11.50pm and the noise was intolerable and the bed was vibrating from the bass. If we hadn't walked 15 miles that day then we might have enjoyed being downstairs but we needed a good rest and were unable to have it. CHECK WHEN YOU BOOK and avoid rooms 6 and 7 as they are above the bar.
- our bed was far too hard and after the third night I had back ache

Room Tip: Avoid 6 and 7 - right above the bar and if there is a band in you will not sleep

I visited the Crown Inn with my girlfriend at the start of May. We went for a quite break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and that's exactly what we got. The Crown is situated about 10/15 mins drive away from Bowness which is perfect if you fancy a meal by the lake before returning for a few drinks in the Crown Bar.

We eat at the Crown 1 night and the food was of a brilliant quality. Portions where huge!

The drinks are cheap and the service fantastic. There was a band on during our stay which gave the place a brilliant atmosphere, we didn't want the night to end.

The staff couldn't have been more friendly. Upon arrival we where shown to our room and left to our own devices, exactly what we wanted.

Couldn't recommend this place enough and will certainly be returning in the near future.

Fantastic place, friendly bar staff, great camaraderie and brilliant location at the low end of the Lakes.

The meals are very nice and the choice, though limited hits the spot and the small breakfast is perfectly formed for a day's exploring.

Will be back again at some point!

Room Tip: Rooms over the high bar/restaurant will be quieter, look out for the ends of the beds as they are deceptive
