“Wonderful find.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

This hotel manages to strike a balance of being both child friendly and adult orientated. It has a large garden, and ample sized rooms. The village is beautiful, smack bang in between Southwold and Aldeburgh. The staff and the food amazing, i cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: We had the Marsh harrier room that overlooked the garden.

Fabulous bedroom suite. Fantastic food - with local produce featuring strongly. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location for Southwold and the unspoiled coast. Dunwich heath and beach is just down the road - the best thing about Dunwich is that there is nothing there. It is worth exploring Dunwich's fascinating history. Westleton village is pretty. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Have a look at the photos on their website.

We have visited the Crown Inn a few times, also their sister hotel The Ship at Dunwhich, they both have a fabulously relaxing atmosphere and very friendly staff. The food at the Crown is unbelievably good and is definitely a match for The Crown and Castle at Orford. Unfortunately their was a rather harassed feeling in the bar on Saturday night, we were not given any menus or the specials list ,i had to eventually collect them from the bar, our order was not taken for forty five mins, we would have gone to the bar but were told someone would come to us, and then only when I gesticulated madly. The bar staff seemed very nice but completely overrun by restaurant drink orders so much so bar diners like us were left to feel like second class citizen. We in fact sat with seven glasses from the previous tables occupants all through our 3 hour bar meal. This was all a blip I am sure, however, the people assigned to oversee the bar should really focus on that as the people overseeing the restaurant were definitely not bothering with us, in fact both men running the restaurant ignored my gesticulations. Our room had a large stain on the wallpaper, but was very nice I love the Fired Earth quality bathroom furnishings, a touch of luxury and the Peckniffs toiletries. The breakfast waitress, was delightful, she should have a bonus and maybe put in charge of the bar to enhance its ambience , such a lovely cheery and friendly lady. Not sure of her name but she has two cats one called Gary. Visit the Crown it is great, the bar service, I hope , is not typical. We will be returning for another go, even if only for the food.

It is always a pleasure to read about guests good experiences when staying with us, thank you. However it seems on this occasion we did not get everything quite right for your entire stay. The restaurant was busy but I would not want this to impact on the guests experience for those choosing to eat in the bar. We have already put actions into place to ensure this is not repeated and to make certain that each of our customers enjoy the same level of service that is expected when staying at The Westleton Crown. We are also taking action regarding your point regarding the mark on the wallpaper in your room.
Thank you

We had an overnight stay to have a bit of R&R after a busy, tough couple of weeks. We were made very welcome by the staff on arrival after we'd spent the day nearby in Southwold. As we were a little wet after a beachside walk, we had tea in the re-developed lounge area by a warm log fire.
Our room was very comfortable with a great bathroom complete with shower and slipper bath and great Pecksniff toiletries.

Dinner in the restaurant that night was good but a little heavy and inelegant in comparison to other hotels in the area. However, it was excellently prepared and of good local produce. The wine list was extensive and interesting. Breakfast was as good as ever in the Westleton Crown and the staff were very friendly and attentive but not intrusive.

All in all, a lovely, relaxing short break - and the improving weather made it even better.

Room Tip: Go for a Better or Best room option - its worth it.

Finding the hotel was fun. Our satnav took us through the countryside along ever narrowing lanes. However a highlight of our trip was seeing a barn owl in broad daylight flying ahead of the car. It settled in a tree and looked down on us with a haughty stare. never seen one in the wild before.... Any way the hotel. Its one of the better pub hotels. Great atmosphere with open log fires a welcoming receptionist and very nice rooms.

The restaurant offered a restricted 1st course menu as we were told that they were short handed in the kitchen. However this was not a problem as the our chosen courses were ok. I chose the pea and ham soup which was ok but fairly standard. I should have chosen the pate (my wife's choice) which was excellent..

The main and sweet courses we excellent with plenty of choice.

Our room was cosy and warm. It was great to hear the rain beating down on the roof as we lay in bed.

Would definitely recommend you find this place.

Room Tip: The hotel offer good, better and best rooms. Very honest. Go for the best you can afford. Rooms i...

We have taken our children (in the evening) to the bar area of the Crown for years over Easter holidays - have always had an excellently prepared great quality family meal to finish off our holiday in relaxed surroundings.

We have just returned from a very relaxed 3 night stay at The Crown. I can highly recommend it; the food and service was outstanding and the room although not large was extremely comfortable with little extras such as robes, a cafetiere and bottled water making it all the better.
