The hotel is in a bit of a remote location and because it was half term there were loads of children around. On the whole they were very well behaved, but it's not really a hotel where I would expect to see so many children. The food in the restaurant was to die for. Absolutely fantastic.
There's not many hotels that after checking in you have to drive to find your room!
Parking was a challenge as the place was very busy. Room was warm and welcoming. The spa was great. Bar is madly expensive so be aware!!

Checked in late (11pm) and checked out early (6am) so didn't get the chance to explore the hotel or eat in the restuarant. When I checked in it was very quite. There was one receptionist and two bar staff in the 24hr bar. The hotel from what I cld see at night looked grand and well kept. Inside was very 17th century as u wld expect. Parking on-site. My room was very clean and comfortable. Good wifi signal, TV channels and very warm. I had to turn the heating down. Some may say the decor is dated and I might agree with that but I also think that the rooms go with the rest of the hotel and character. For the price I paid I can't complain and I'm thinking of returning soon and this time check in early and take advantage of the hotel facilities. There was only one petrol station with mini supermarket near by.
The hotel has been recently renovated to a high standard. It is a very quaint and quirky old coaching inn. Nice bar with open fire, good beers and a very friendly welcome. All the staff were extremely friendly, proficient and competent.
The room a superior double had a four poster bed and was very comfortable, the magnificent bathroom was next to the bedroom and had a wonderful rainforest style shower and a roll top bath. The room was huge.
The Inn offered a good evening menu and you are able to eat in the bar or the restaurant.
The inclusive breakfast offers a small buffet with cereals, pastries and a small selection of fruit and juices. There is also a comprehensive cooked menu to follow offering a good selection.
It's hard to find any major faults and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will return should I need a place to stay in the general vicinity in the future.
My only slight niggle was with the central heating, the extremely competent radiators have no thermostatic controls, the only way to attempt temperature controls is via the large valve, my fruitless efforts were to no avail, in the end you simply have to resort to on or off.
Well done The Crown Inn, I had a lovely 1 night stay whilst travelling on business.
Set on a broad inlet, Southampton is the largest city in southern England and cruise capital of Northern Europe. Some of the world’s largest liners are based here and many more visit regularly. The centre is modern but retains several historic buildings, two excellent art galleries, two theatres, plus good eating, drinking and shopping. Ocean Village leisure complex at the marina features a new museum of aviation.
