Fantastic Easter Break
The Crown is a wonderful Country Inn John & Sue are the most welcoming of hosts and the staff are both efficient warm and friendly.
We enjoyed a four night break at the Crown, but if felt more like we were visiting family than staying at a hotel. We would highly recommend this destination to anyone. thanks John, Sue and team for a wonderful break.
A pleasant experience
The pub was warm and inviting with a real log fire roaring.
All of the staff were extremely polite and helpful. The room was spacious and had everything I needed. I ate in the pub in the evening and would certainly recommend the cod loin. I would most most certainly stay again if I returned to the area.
The Crow @ Marnhull
What a find.
A warm welcome, great customer service and very friendly locals . We were given a fantastic room - big and very comfortable with a impressive bathroom, all finished of with a really great breakfast. When visiting this area, you must go and stay at this hotel. The only down side is that we could only stay one night.
Worth every single penny
Lovely place, very friendly and professional staff.
Room was spotless, warm and comfy.
A great winter break, a classic country pub.
We had a two night winter break here.
We found the hotel stunning, it was packed with period features, the staff were genuinely helpful and friendly, the room was perfect, the bathroom especially so. The food was delicious, reasonably priced with good portion sizes. It has a good mix of relaxed locals, diners and overnight guests. During the meal on our second night, I became ill (due to my own medication) the staff could not have been more helpful, our meals were taken back to our room without as fuss. The location is unspoiled countryside, within easy reach of Shaftesbury, Blandford and the coastal towns. We went to Swanage withing an hour. We will certainly be back, five stars!
Great weekend's stay
I spent the weekend here with my elderly mother and had a really lovely time.
The staff were absolutely great and couldn't do enough for you. The food was of a good standard and variety. My room was tastefully decorated and was a very high standard. My mother was in the "disabled" room which was the same but with a wet room. The only criticism I have is that this room which is on the ground floor does not have any secondary glazing and is right next to the road. This is an amazingly busy road and the noise level was therefore not conducive to a good night's sleep. I had secondary glazing in my room which was above hers and this made all the difference. If the owner put this in to the ground floor room this would make all the difference.
A lovely place to stay!
The Crown Inn suited us perfectly for a one night stay prior to attending an event in Wincanton.
The room was spacious and had everything we needed. We enjoyed a superb meal in the pub with excellent service and attention from the staff. We would certainly stay here again if we were in the area. The place has character and an individual style which appealed to us. The road outside was rather busy at times during the night: this was the only disadvantage.
Lovely country inn, comfortable accommodation, great food and helpful friendly staff
Wonderful place to stay, the bedroom was large, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.
All of the staff were incredibly friendly and could not have been more helpful. The food was fabulous I would particularly recommend the Game Faggots. The only small niggle was that the bedrooms are next to the road and first thing in the morning there can be traffic noise, but that is nitpicking.
Good Food and Great Character
Arrived on a wet night to a warm welcome and a good meal and comfortable bed.
Room was close to the road so some traffic noise
We just enjoyed our 4th stay at the crown inn at Marnhull and it was another excellent experience.
We always have the same room (room 1 luccetta) which is always a lovely spacious room to be able to relax in. And the food is never a disappointment, we normally return to places after a great meal and are usually slightly underwhelmed but here the food gets better every visit, and to be that consistent over a space of two years is amazing. From the start to finish the meal was incredible including one of the best perfectly cooked fillet steaks I've ever had. Will no doubt be returning again and again. Thanks
