Clean, quiet and tidy room. Towels and bed linens are crisp,white and clean. Room is large. Carvery served in restaurant very good. Staff all very polite. Love the character of this very old (and haunted) carriage inn. Great location on the main street with a grocery store behind the hotel, a 30 second walk away, what a bonus. Ignore all...

On arrival we rang the bell (mid day) and waited, and waited then went off for a coffee across the road at Costa. The bar was ok, "Lite Bite" lunch was ok, nothing special. The room (no 16) was depressing: it looked as though it had never been redecorated since the place was built, a long long time ago. It...

The Crown Hotel is centrally located in Brackley. It is a rather spartan and old fashioned hotel, but the personnel are sympathetic and very helpful. My room was at the top end of the aisle, meaning WiFi coverage wasn't optimal (if any). Furniture are old and wallpaper starts peeling here and there... But overall, clean and tidy. Bathroom is neat...

At first view I thought that the reviews on here were a bit harsh as it was an old coaching inn and therefore expected a little wear and tear however it's not that's it not clean. I noticed yesterday the carpet hadn't been vacuumed and there were bits all over including a toe nail clipping by the door. The light...
