Unlike other posters here - we found nothing about The Crown at Lyndhurst to praise!!!! Everything creeks and I mean everything, from opening the wardrobe door to the bathroom door, the bed-head was insecure and constantly banged against the wall, there was "nasty" woodchip wallpaper used as draw liners! unbelievable and basically just walking up and down the room , gave creak, creak, creak. We had a room overlooking what I can only term as one of the busiest thoroughfares in southern england. Lyndhurst is a village and the amount of traffic that goes through on the one way system is unbelievable. The secondary glazing on the windows is therefore totally ineffective. We were woken each morning at 7am (including Sunday!) so no sleep there! When we closed the windows trying to get some sleep, there was no air conditioning either. We could hear every step taken by the guests in the room upstairs, creaking again. We were unable to turn off the boiling hot towel rail in the bathroom, which made the room very warm indeed. Breakfast was a total disaster - mediocre food kept warm, tables so close to the self service area - that I would actually call to mind the safety aspects of guests carrying occasionally hot food pushing past your table. Ummmm, not exactly 3 Star hotel, in my opinion, The staff, I found, to be pleasant at best and downright dis-interested most of the time. The whole Hotel needs gutting and significant refurbishment needs to take place in order to stop the creaking. We shall not be returning to this hotel again.
