My boyfriend and I stayed here for a romantic weekend. We paid £145 and although the room was comfortable the TV didn't work, and when we called reception to help they said their maintenance guy doesn't work at the weekend and they will send someone up. We waited over an hour and just left the room and left the TV for the duration of our stay. Having to wait around was just disappointing. We had a bottle of wine in the bedroom but no cork screw to open it. That aside it was a lot of little things that ruined the experience for us. We sat in the hotel bar and ordered drinks. The bar tender had clearly over charged us by £4 and didn't say anything or correct it until I asked to see the menu again. He admitted that he needed a manager to void the transaction as he couldn't do it himself so thought he could get away with overcharging. I thought this was really unprofessional. In the morning when we arrived in the restaurant for breakfast we were asked if we would like a coffee latte cappuccino etc. We both requested a latte but were later told that we could only have coffee or tea which I thought was fine but disappointing as they had offered it to us in the first place. Another disappointing experience was when we had finished eating breakfast we overheard one of the waiters telling another customer that they could have their eggs pouched, florentined, or royale. Such a shame they didn't tell us as we would have wanted this. The service generally was really disorganised and just disappointing. I had high hopes for this place as it's a beautiful building but for the price and experience it JUST ISNT WORTH IT.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Crown in Old Amersham, situated at the end of the Metropolitan Line and 40 minutes from London, is the second in a family of modern day coaching inns recently renovated by the designer Ilse Crawford (other works include Babington House). The old timber building is situated in the centre of the historic market town, attracting locals, restaurant guests and night time travelers. The inn’s interior is made up of rural materials – from Ercol chairs made in High Wycombe to traditional plaster made from lime and horsehair. The ‘back room’ with its inglenook fire and view of the cobbled courtyard is perfect for private gatherings and feasting of up to 40, while the bar and restaurant area is the communal heartbeat of the inn. The kitchen serves seasonally inspired, locally sourced food with in-between times satisfied with home baked cheese scones and fruit cake with Cashel Blue while the main menus changes daily. ... more less
