Reviewed 6 June 2014

Oh dear, locked in room as it had a dodgy lock, the second rooms shower head was the most disgusting thing I've seen in a while and a cupboard signed fire door Keep locked was open and it was storing Archive documents with people's names and addresses on them. The kitchen and waiting staff had a row which was heard in the coffee lounge (language so appalling I can't repeat and Peter the barman was also the waiter, maintenance, waiter,receptionist. No management was seen in 3 days/2nights and the general cleanliness needs to be looked into. the car park was full of rubbish, but other than that for somewhere to lay your head was ok. I have photos and would love to share them!!

Stayed here with a coupon, which made it good value for money. Room was cosy and I slept well with no problems with noise.
If wifi, and even mobile phone connection is important this is not the hotel for you. The only place the wifi worked for me is in the reception area of the hotel. Couldn't get it in the bar so my plan of dinner in the bar and doing some research for next part of trip was thwarted.
Staff were helpful, even allowing me to checkout late as I was very jet lagged so I really appreciated their kindness. Food was okay - not memorable but edible.
If you have a big bag you may have to carry it down steep driveway - I just put a few things from this into my smaller bag for the night.

Very nice hotel in a lovely cotswold village, not a lot happens here, ideal for those looking for a tranquill break, clean, comfortable, nice breakfast although not available untill 8.30 and the bar closes at regular pub hours, luckily we had an annexe and found a pub down the road serving a late one with a bit more going on.

Room Tip: get the annexe then you can get in late

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Crown Hotel at the beginning of May. Ideally located in the middle of the Cotswold, on site car park, although up a very steep hill. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was lovely - no 15 with a four poster bed, although bathroom could have done with a bit of TLC. The first night we ate in the bar. The bar environment itself left a lot to be desired, but the food we had was fantastic. Second night we booked and ate in the hotel restaurant. Again, food was very very good. Breakfast was great and cooked fresh to order, although we did have to wait for a table on one occasion. Having read some other reviews on here I certainly didnt take as much notice as some people do, but can state that we had a very pleasant stay and would visit again.

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.

Room Tip: Would not recommend room 25 see review.

We recently stayed in Blockley and wanted somewhere local for drinks and a meal. The Crown is fantastically located right in the centre of this beautiful village. On arrival it was obvious the place needed a bit of TLC. They offer separate bar and restaurant menus. Neither particularly inspiring. Our meal was adequate. Service was adequate. We didn't stay in the rooms so I couldn't comment. Our major impression was that this place could draw people from all around the Cotswolds if it had some major investment and quality eating and drinking experiences. Update& refresh, get a great chef and work on the front of staff training and presentation and this could be an outstanding place.
We ate out of the village for the rest of our stay and nearly all people we met said how great the Crown used to be and what a shame it has gone into such decline. The current owners clearly don't want to invest time or energy into it, so sell it on so someone else can polish up the Crown back to it's former glory and reputation!

Stayed here as a Mothers and Fathers day gift from children.

Blockley is a lovely old world charm of a village, absolutely peaceful. The Crown sits on the High Street which leads to a dead end so the only traffic is local or the hotels.
The Crown Hotel can only be best described as outdated. Do not get me wrong if you love old world charm dated furniture, carpets that have seen better days and cobwebs this place is all that.

The staff overall are very friendly but some what lacking perhaps in the art of service within restaurants. eating in the breakfast was certainly adequate but the lack of asking the customer for more tea/coffee was not forthcoming, down to the point that if you arrived for breakfast at 9.30 breakfast was lacking and stuff like fruit juices not kept replenished. The evening meal at a fixed price of £19.95 for three courses was again adequate but not top quality.

The Bar area was drab to say the least and was not very welcoming. One door left wide open to another room was littered with junk when this would have made a far better bar area for seating. Apparently it was a former fish restaurant of some repute again now allowed to lapse some.

Our room was Number 1, this was at the top of the car park and was in the attic of a stone building. Below our room was two others which were basically half the size. To be honest the room we was in if painted redecorated and new carpets and furniture installed could be there top room. The room was enormous with views out across the roof tops and looking across the valley. Outside it had its own self contained fenced off patio area with a table and chairs, from here on it was a little down hill. The carpet was grubby and stained and also had a rug the same. The bedroom furniture was best described as antique pine which one bedside cabinet door fell apart when opened. The two lovely velux windows in the roof where ruined by the blown glazing in them. The paintwork all over was dirty and needed as said completely repainting. The bathroom as okay but again requires some updating, rusty toilet cleaning brush and again the pine was there.

It is a shame about this as said it could be wonderful but I'm afraid it has lapsed. Would I stay here again yes because ultimately the location does sell it but only at the groupon avialable price of £49 per night.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 1 for views and patio if you don't mind the other details.
