                  Excellent room with comfy bed. Nice bathroom

                  Walls appear to be lath and plaster - we could hear the guy next door snoring

                  9.2

                  Extremely nice, helpful staff. Loved the olde worlde use of bare boards, wooden tables, pewter and heavy pottery jugs. Good choices and easy to help yourself for breakfast. Quick and efficient maintenance when TV remote not working.

                  Water was not quite hot enough for bathing in the morning - around 7am.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  Location good for London/Slough

                  "Executive Double Room" had bare walls, bare floors, pull down blind on window, bare radiator pipes on wall, no headboard on bed, basic furniture (wooden rocking chair, small milking stool style bedside tables) - A clean, but very basic room!

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  The expansive double bed and the spacious bathroom were most impressive. There were small 'touches' to the room: tea, hair dryer, etc. that impressed us, too.

                  We felt it unnecessary to play music constantly throughout the hotel. Bob Dylan and Creedance Clearwater aren't very appropriate to the ambiance of the hotel. Room service for food should not end as early as 10 pm. And 11 a.m. is a little 'mean' as far as checking-out is concerned.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Excellent staff - extremely helpful and responsive to requests. A chef who produced food of a standard very much to my liking - no difficulty in producing a perfect blue steak. Clean, comfortable and warm room. I will undoubtedly use the Crown again.

                  I found there were no negative aspects to my stay.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  Location - with easy access to M25. Reasonable B& B rate charged. Good breakfast.

                  Expensive charges for dinner (with added 15% service charge) and limited a la carte menu.

                • Couple
                  5.8

                  Great location.

                  This place could be fantastic but they seem to be very complacent (maybe from past popularity) & as a result staff are unfriendly and the whole place was cold with no real atmosphere. Room was also noisy above the bar.

                • Single
                  9.2

                  I loved my room; the food was amazing; the duty manager was fantastic (Natalie/Natasha?) and gave very personal service (she even sent out for newspapers when the shop had forgotten to deliver them); very trivial but I also loved the toiletries in the bathroom (and don't usually!)

                  Very trivial, but I didn't like the metal plates in the dining room.

                  Ease of parking, very friendly and efficient staff, location in Old Amersham

                  Wooden floor boards made the Hotel very noisy. Had to complain to reception about the noise from other hotel guests walking about in their non carpeted bedroom above late in the evening when trying to sleep.. The decor is 'Old England meets 'Minimalism' - a strange mixture!

                • Older travelers
                  5.8

                  Not a lot. Our first impression was that the courtyard garden needed attention. . We were first shown to room 17, which had recently been refubished. The refurbishment had been badly done it was dark, dingy and impractical. The blinds hid a horrible view of weeds and untidy steps and made the room dark. We were then shown to room 111, where the arms of the chair were worn, the bathroom door stuck making a horrible noise.

                  Not a lot. The breakfast was ok. The lunchtime offering of sandwiches was poor. I had the salmon sandwich which was not appetizing. My husband had the chowder which was ok.

                  Room Aircon inefficient (staff did provide a fan though)

                • Family with children
                  6.2

                  Amersham is a really lovely town and we enjoyed our walks around the area. The Crown has been sympathetically renovated and is overall, relatively comfortable. We particularly enjoyed breakfast and the outdoor courtyard.

                  None of the bedrooms in the main house have baths in the bathrooms, which we weren't made aware of before checking-in and being shown to the room. So if you want to wallow in the complimentary Aesop toiletries, ask when you check in for a bedroom with a bath! Also, we had great expectations of our evening meal after reading good reviews of the restaurant. However, the food was not really up to scratch but the staff reacted well to our comments and made replacements where necessary.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  Quaint and interesting old buildings. Nice and fresh food. Friendly and helpful staff.

                  Quilt on bed too hot. This was adjusted and replaced with a blanket on request. It was unusually hot days when we happened to stay. Small plates at beakfast seemed inadequate and also lack of small knifes for buttering and preserves lacking on the tables.
