    Stayed for four nights, very friendly, relaxing and welcoming hotel. Good food and good service at bar and in restuarant. Would recommend a stay here if you want a relaxing time. For me it was good to get back to the hotel to relax after a stressful day at work.

    Thanks for a brilliant stay. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful, and our room was fabulous. After a riotous friend's wedding, we ended up booking a room for an additional afternoon to recover - the wonderful India (one of the managers, I believe) was understanding - and shared a giggle - and gave us a very friendly farewell. She also tracked down my cuddly tortoise who we left behind... Oh, and the food. Ham, egg and chips have never been so tasty. If you're ever in the area, stay here. Or come here to stay at the Crown. Or just have a pint in the courtyard. Thanks so much, Crown crew. (and I've marked everything excellent because it was 5/5 and am not a plant for a good review) Rebecca

    Staff are all very, very friendly and the single room I booked was clean newly decorated and nice. The hot water is VERY HOT I turned it on and immediately it was boiling which I was not ready for and nearly scalded my hand! All services with a smile but I did find the food I had slightly expensive, I had the ploughmans which basically was a roll, no butter, with two very thin pieces of cheese, not sure what, not cheddar and some salad, pickle in a small pot they had no ham, so I had two very thin slices of "salt beef" that must have been sliced with a razor and they were thin strips too possibly an inch or so wide. This cost me £10 which would be dearer than London. All in all a very nice place to stay, both in the building itself and the people who run it. I would stay there again if I happen to be in the area. Value in the room and service rather than the food I had although some of the other meals looked nice and more substantial.

    Nice pub, good food, good service, comfortable clean room. Pleasant staff. Only one problem, - the teapots! They were obviously selected for their looks and I suspect no-one tried them when they were full of hot tea. The handle design makes them almost impossible to hold and pour. Change the teapots and the pub gets 5 stars!

    Nice hotel with excellent service. Water supply in room was spasmodic and hence shower unit virtually unusable. We didn't realise that food wasn't served on Sunday evenings (The day we arrived) but found an excellent alternative within a 10 min. walk. Room was over hot for time of year ( an unusual 32C) and windows wouldn't fully open. No blinds at bathroom window which overlooked courtyard - though it was frosted glass. Rather overpriced for the quality of the hotel in our opinion.

    From the moment of our unexpectedly very early arrival, nothing was too much trouble for the whole team. From access to the room within minutes through sorting a taxi (we'd failed!) to a party and checking out the following morning, all the staff were efficient, warm and friendly. Excellent atmosphere in the hotel and bags of character. Will be using the hotel as the base for a holiday next summer.

    "Charming hotel"
    By , Reading, UK
    A lovely hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, and a great breakfast! The room was beautiful with lovely old wooden furniture; upmarket teas including herbal teas were appreciated! The downside of the age of the building is uneven floorboards and the fact that sound seems to travel a bit between rooms. The plumbing is also dubious - fine for a good bath but a shower was impossible, and I'd have liked to know that so that I didn't waste time trying! Staff assured us that the plumbing was undergoing a major refit but I think I would check before rebooking. I would go back, though - I was sorry we didn't have longer to enjoy it.

    attractive old building in an good central location, nice sized rooms with comfortable beds, friendly staff and a excelent menu in the restaurant a bit pricey though. Rooms overlooking the courtyard can be a bit noisy late in to the evening and the plumbing has a mind of its own but this is going to be sorted out.

    We stayed at the Crown thirteen years ago and loved it and so decided to return since we would be in the area. It was just as good as the first time: good service, very efficient, clean, lovely room, excellent value and the food was excellent as well. Lovely atmosphere too. I would recommend it.

    The hotel had lots of character and charm, but unfortunately I did have a problem with hot water, both in the original room and the room I was moved to. They were apologetic and offered me a discount on my bill but ultimately, I was unable to use the shower at all, and could only use the bath, which took a long time to fill! However the room was very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. The breakfast was quick and very tasty.
