About the hotel
The Crown at Marnhull is steeped in history. It has been used as a pub and has been serving customers since the time of King Henry the eighth. The thatched part of the building dates back to the 16th century and has as far as possible remained untouched.
A priest hole is still visable in the bar that linked the pub to the nearby St Gregory`s church. Thomas Hardy was a frequent visitor to The Crown and the pub features in his most famous novel, Tess of the D`urbervilles as ` The Pure Drop Inn` situated in the village of Marlot (Marnhull). Nowadays, The Crown boasts 6 en suite letting bedrooms. Spacious and fully equipped, huge fluffy towels, flat screen HD TV`s with Freeview, tea and coffee making facilities, room safe, free WIFI, power showers and deep roll top baths or a wet room supplied with toiletries. In our pub we are open 12:00pm - 11:30pm and you will find food served 12pm - 9pm. We use only the freshest local ingredients that Dorset`s fine larder has to offer. Our eggs are all free range, vegetables are used in season and we try to cut out food miles by buying fresh and local. All our dishes are homemade and cooked to order from first principle. The main bar `The Pure Drop Inn` is open all day serving quality real ales, wines and soft drinks or even just a coffee by the roaring log fire.

Our stay in the Crown Inn was lovely.
Friendly staff, great bar, room was really good value and had everything you could need for a comfortable stay apart from a plug for the bath. Unfortunately I did not find it was missing until very late at night so sadly no bath. Great shower though. At breakfast there was a self service for cereals, fruit and juices. My only recommendation would be that a sign is put on that table suggesting that 'People with allergens should check with the staff first'. I always check when ordering from the menu but did not on this occasion when helping myself to the bran flakes which also contained Hazelnuts. Overall a great stay, lovely quiet location, would highly recommend the roast on the Sunday and the hot breakfast was fantastic, I had the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon but the full English looked amazing. Staff were very helpful and friendly and would not hesitate in booking/reccommending it again.
The hotel was delightful, the staff were friendly and very helpful and the food was to die for.
The best chips on the planet and the full English is really full on. Would certainly stay here again.
