We stayed one night at the Crown and were very well looked after. The room was lovely, dinner excellent and good selection of wines. The one thing that is most obvious at The Crown is its staff - they clearly get on well and have a great respect for each other and that shows. They are all very cheerful and attentive. We would most definitely recommend.

What a wonderful place and the first time back to this part of the country in 15 years. The staff without exception are kind, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. So sad that they will have to close tomorrow but hopeful they can recover for a buzzing and profitable Christmas. Thanks for a lovely stay and wish you all the very best. Will return!

We have stayed twice recently at the Westleton Crown located between Southwold, Dunwich and Aldborough. It is a great location for a few days by the coast. Dog friendly. Great food and service, relaxed atmosphere, nice bar. The staff are friendly and helpful (thanks particularly to Rosie for your cheerful help). A delightful stay and a hotel we highly recommend.

Stayed for the night last night. Went based on excellent food reviews. Arrived and left to find our room which was very small but clean. On arrival told only two slots left for breakfast, either 8.15 or 10am. Was told dinner was at 6.30 for us. Questioned this as we realised we had prebooked it for 7.30. This wasnt a problem. Towels left on the bed as nowhere to hang them in the bathroom. Nowhere to put toiletries either. No toiletries whatsoever in room. Had to ask at reception for shower gel. Went to dinner. Ordered calamari, well i have never encountered such a mean portion of calamari. Must have been about 4 extremely thin slices deep fried with about 4 small pieces of chorizo but lots of salad leaves. No substance to the starter. Partner had a nice starter though. Had steak for main which was cooked perfectly but beef dripping chips were rustic and taste wasnt to my liking, but that could be me! Salad leaves with few slices of shallots accompanied this. Partner had pork chop which was as tough as old boots. I had a dessert of rice pudding that was awful. No sweetness at all and quite an unpleasant accompanying flavour. Partner had a solid slice of polenta cake. When waitress asked if everything was ok we mentioned the pork chop. She apologised and said would take this off the bill (at £18.50). Breakfast. Service slow. A backlog waiting to be cooked and go out apparently. Had toast whilst waiting and served on a plate with butter. Turned the slices over which were as burnt as could be, black and charred. Cooked breakfast was good. Waitress noticed the black toasts and took away whist laughing. Another plate of toast arrived at their behest, perfectly cooked but no apology made. Checked out and paid. Pork chop not taken off the bill but cheaper £7 dessert was. Sorry but we cannot recommend this hotel and will not be going back.

We spent a night here this week ( Wed) after a rather stressful few days elsewhere. A warm and friendly member of staff checked us into Skylark, and we were so happy with our snug, warm and comfortable room. All staff were really helpful, polite and offered too service. Gaby who served us on Wednesday night and who we saw again at breakfast was superb. Nothing was too much for her and she was an absolute natural at making us feel relaxed and looked after without any hassling. I was rather stressed on arrival and by the time I left was a different person. Our dogs were really relaxed and slept very well. When I had to take them down for a last toilet stop at 1130pm there was a lovely male member of staff laying up for breakfast who was so kind and helpful he really needs a mention. Totally recommend for relaxing, food was delicious and the whole package was brilliant. I didnt want to leave and will be back again. Thank you

Good Afternoon Cromarty53, Thank you very much for a lovely review it certainly sounds like you were relaxed and recharged when you left us, which is great. Gabby and our night team of Andy/Richard are fantastic team members who enjoy engaging with guests and delivering an experience whereby guests want to come back again and again. We have many dogs visit us every week and it is part of the Chestnut culture to look after our furry friends as we do our human friends, so we look forward to welcoming you all back again very soon,
