It is a beautiful building. People go to visit hillgate area for its famous cemetery, to appreciate the old heritage of London, and the tranquility of Parliament hill. As the Old Crown Inn celebrates on many occasions, people also go here to relax for a night. The Old Crown Inn provides accommodation with free parking and Wi-Fi. It overlooks St...

Cheap (relatively, not so much for us northern folks) and cheerful, gets the job done of being a place to crash for the night. The ability to select a room with a bathroom en-suite is nice and puts the place above a hostel, but if that is no object to you, I would recommend just going for a likely much...

Lovely Victorian building with a myriad of tiny rooms along improbably meandering corridors. Very basic, no frills at all, in need of modernisation, no WiFi in rooms .... but clean and alright if all you want is a clean and fairly comfortable bed.

Wow!! Conveniently positioned within a 5 minute walk of the Tube. Full to the brim of character with great staff and ambience and that's just the bar. We paid £35 for the night. You're not going to find anywhere better for the same money. Add another 100 quid and you might get a room in the Travelodge. This place is...

Can't recommend this place enough, Barmaid Kate was super friendly and made my stay a pleasure. She had great interaction with all the customers and went out of her way to help me. Would deff come back simply for the customer service, in fact will be returning later in the year and bringing friends.

A group of us went to the Old Crown for lunch on Monday 6th June. Having enjoyed a meal there the month before. On both occasions we were treated to good food well cooked and with excellent and friendly service .We don't live in the area but I am sure we will return when we are next in Highgate.

quite quiet for being located at a main street above a pub ... rooms quite simple ... missing some light on the lengthy and complicated and somehow adventurous way and staircases leading to the rooms ...

We chose the pub for its convenient location for our weekend activities. Visiting the Highgate cemetery and two E.H & N.T. houses plus a walk on Hampstead Heath. It was easy to reach from Euston and had live music at the weekends. From the outside appearance we would not have chosen to enter. The hotel side of the pub was...

Stayed here recently with my partner while visiting my sister who lives in archway. The only thing this place has going for it is its location which is 5 mins walk up hill from archway underground. Before i continue i would just like to say i have never previously given a bad review. When we stepped in the door and...

“If loud music bothers you, try to get a room nearer to top of the building, and at the back if possible.”
