  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

My partner and i stayed here last September and had an amazing time. So much so that we booked through yourselves for a New Years Eve stay. My partner and i had got engaged during our previous stay so were excited at the thought of celebrating this special eve at The Crown. However we were devastated to learn that although our booking was confirmed by yourselves The Crown stated that they were only doing a NYE package which was beyond our means. I tried to contact yourselves to find an explanation as to why we were able to book through Expedia but with no success. My partner and i were very upset as this was going to be a perfect start to 2020.

A Beautiful Hotel

The Crown is a beautiful hotel where it is clear the proprietors have the support of the staff in making it a first rate place to stay. From the friendly, helpful greeting upon arrival, to the first rate dinner and breakfast, our visit was one of the highest order. Beautifully appointed throughout, you would be hard pushed to find a better hotel anywhere and we have frequently paid double the cost for a hotel that is not in the same class.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: I doubt this is possible.

Location: Suffolk is a beautiful county - if you can't find interesting things to do and lovely things to se, you're not looking very hard.
