    Flawless

    We had our wedding with the Crown and it was fantastic. The staff and service were flawless, they were helpful and professional. They made our day run smoothly and helped with everything they could during the planning etc. Francesca and all the other staff who were there were friendly and happy, the high standard was fantastic. The food was incredible and I can not thank the crown hotel enough for making our wedding perfect for us!

    Excellent

    From the moment we started planning our wedding at the Crown Francesca and Robert and the team have been amazing. We felt very looked after and special. The day itself was run very well it was smooth with no fuss. The food was excellent all our guests enjoyed the day and evening. Also our guests that stayed over loved their rooms too.
