We stayed at The Crown Inn over the bank holiday weekend, first impressions were good and what we expected of a hotel in a. Cotswold village. We were greeted at reception by a friendly lady and shown to our room, number 25, a superior suite. They use the term suite, loosely. The room was at the back of the hotel, near the car park with a decking area outside where all the smokers in the hotel go to fill their lungs, not nice if you're a non smoker. The room layout was nice, on two levels with a sitting area and a raised area for the bed. However, in dire need of painting, very grubby and the bathroom was quite frankly, not of a high standard. The shower closet was stained and the shower head awful. The bed was two singles stuck together, standard antique pine, very dated decor and the kettle needed descaling. The worst part about this room was that it was situated underneath another room, you could hear absolutely everything that was going on in the room above and I mean everything! Breakfast was ok, as mentioned in other reviews, no refill offered for tea and coffee and not very attentive staff....why are they not addressing this issue? It's been mentioned lots on the reviews but this basic need is not being met, beggars belief and not a hard issue to rectify. Sadly lacking which is a shame because it's a beautiful village. We ate at The Great Western Arms, a short walk away, in the same village, thoroughly recommend the GWA...worlds apart from The Crown. Management, take note.
