Disappointed with standard of large double room. Overpriced for area n facilities offered... shower room very small and nowhere to hang towels. Breakfast poor brought from aldi.... overheard staff talking about buying extra supplies, not enough menu choices for hotel star standard. Sauces/sugar lumps not supplied wiv serving spoons. Would not recommend.

I booked last minute. When we arrived discovered our room was on 3rd floor. My husband has mobility problems. Receptionist founded us one on 1st floor. Can only say the Staff were delightful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Only had breakfast as visiting friends in the area, it was freshly cooked. Both morning the girls were very efficient and friendly.
I liked the quirkiness of the building so nice to have some character after the business chain hotels
I have stayed in before.
We had a very pleasant stay in Wisbech. A very fine town.

Room Tip: Ask for one on 1st floor,

Originally I intended to spend one night here, but due to illness, (nothing to do with the hotel but a certain Indian Restaurant which I will not be reviewing because censorship isn't that liberal yet) had to spend a second night. I was very well looked after indeed. Is the place super-flash? Fortunately, no. Fantastically modern? I'm pleased to say not. Faceless? Definitely not. The Rose and Crown buildings are mainly over 400 years old, with bags of character. The food was excellent (although my style was cramped by the aforegoing lurgi), the room perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean, the lounge second to none in Olde Worlde charm - they give you a little bell to tingle if you want another brandy - the foyer elegant and the overall atmosphere brilliant. But the main Smarty Points are earned by the staff. What a bunch of friendly, caring, smiley, smart, efficient troops. Now, I don't know if the female members have to pass a Beauty Test to get a job, but it certainly looks that way, and it's far better then your drinkie-poos being brought by somebody that looks like Mother Shipton, I can tell you. But the big question, as always, is "would I go back?" Wi'out a doubt, luv, wi'out a doubt!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are really charming.

We picked this Hotel as it was rated the best in Wisbech, and looked really nice right in the centre of town. And it had a free car park. All plus points.

The reception was warm and welcoming, but we had not appreciated we would have to carry our luggage up 56 old uneven stairs! Our room at the very top (costing £75 a night B&B) had one small window that opened - but had to be propped open with a roled up towel! The bathroom floor had dirty marks behind the basin and in the corner by the bath. The "gold" taps and drain in the hand basin were very well worn. The rubber at the bottom of the shower screen needs replacing as it is coming away. The shower flow was weak. The tv was too small to be watched from the bed. There was only one tea bag each and one coffee sachet each. (Very mean for the price).

The breakfast room was very elegant - but the breakfast itself was not. Overcooked leathery bacon, cheap sausage and TINNED mushrooms! The toast came just on a plate (no toast rack). And coffee from a help youself thermos. Really not good enough.

So disappointing that a lovely looking hotel should offer such poor facilities.

The next night we stayed in a Premier Inn (£33 bed only). Spotless bedroom and facilities and as much tea and coffee as you want. This is the future of hotels. You must up your game if you want to compete.

400 year old stair case surrounded by an even older coach house.

For these British old buildings you have to expect the odd creak and oddly shaped rooms as the land lord tries to marry 1600 design with 21 century function. Wifi through out average breakfast coffee from earns. If it's market day and you didn't know be warned if you parked out front the market inspector was less than friendly.
In the bar there is no real ale on tap.
For breakfast it was cooked well and quickly but the ingredients were less than top quality. The sausage was deep fried and not from a butchers. Coffee from a large thermos inns age where people buy a coffee for 3-4£ onbthe street there is no excuse for real coffee served to the table. Could be great but these days needs to do better.

Stayed: July 2014
