We used a TravelZoo deal to stay for 3 nights. The deal promised an upgrade if available but it wasn't available. The deal promised what looked like an exciting hamper, but it wasn't exciting, being made up of more of the bathroom toiletries that were provided anyway, two tiny jars of chutney (unlabelled) and 4 pieces of very sweet fudge...

We stayed here with a Travelzoo deal. We had 2 rooms with my parents in one room & my partner and I in the other. We had a gorgeous double room with a lovely big bathtub & spacious shower. The room shouted seaside town, it was adorable. The bed was honestly the most comfy bed I think I've ever stayed...

We recently celebrated a 60th wedding anniversary dinner at The Crown Hotel and could not fault the service, the private room, staff and attention to detail. The room was decorated beautifully and the meal ended with a cake from the hotel...a really nice touch. Thanks to all who made the evening memorable - we would definitely recommend it.

Celebratory family and friends meal for seven. Easy to book via phone and easy to change number of people on the day. The table was well positioned and the surroundings clean and homely. The menu catered for dietary requirements and was changed at my request for gluten free food. The waitress service was fine although a little confusion reigned over...

We had a superb meal at the Crown and the service was second to none . We had our own room and it was decorated and lovely additional touches were added which made the meal very special .The food and the presentation was to a very high standard and very tasty .

A great location in the middle of Southwold. We had a deal with dinner and breakfast included, both of which were excellent. Our room was a good size with a comfortable bed, modern stylish bathroom and all of the things you need -hairdryer etc. There is parking around the back of the hotel but it is limited.

Beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean and pleasant decor. The service in the restaurant was excellent. Meals were tasty and well presented. The only small fault was the bedroom was very warm soon rectified by turning radiator down and opening a window

Thank rolinman

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An exciting and intimate combination of small hotel, wine bar, pub and restaurant, Adnams Crown Hotel is always buzzing with a lively informality. The food is famously good and the wine list wonderful.

Situated on Southwold's High Street in Suffolk, The Crown is at the heart of activities, and just a few moments away from the seaside. Relax before lunch or dinner in our snug 'Back Bar' with a pint of Adnams famous beer. Free WiFi available throughout the hotel. ... more   less
