      New Year's Eve 2016

      In general: My husband and I stayed with another couple overnight for the New Year's Eve Gala Dinner and dancing. The room where the event was held was perfectly decorated which created a lovely ambiance and the DJ team was spot on and played music for everyone's taste which reflected in the packed dance floor. We were placed with some other people to make up a table of 10. What luck! We all got on so well which made the evening even more memorable. So Rayleigh gang a huge thank you. Our group of 4 had a fantastic night. In general the staff from reception to the waiters offered 10 out of 10 service. So thank you all.Location and surroundings: Great location as it only took is half an hour to get to the Hotel from our house. Service: Execellent service. The staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. They did everything to commensurate the smooth running of the evening. Dining: The food was very tasty and wow not everyone gets the steak right but they did on the night. Sports and leisure: Did not use this facility on the night but have used it previously and it works well. Room: The bedrooms were spacious, clean and well designed and most importantly to noisy. The added touches of complimentary accessories di not go unnoticed.

      Great place to relax. Enjoyed the food, and my husband said the beer was well kept and good.

      Alot of stairs, narrow and could be difficult for the less able.

      Good food.

      They used powdered custard with my desert - it was too sweet.

      It's location, it's very near the borders of Thetford Forrest about a 30-40 min walk away from the hotel.

      Some of the facilities in the room could have been a little bit better, however, the service from the staff more than made up for this as the landlady gave us a lift back to the station when we couldn't get a taxi. This is very friendly behaviour, something we're not accustomed to living in London.

      Friendly service, attached to a nice pub and well appointed comfortable room. Good breakfast, overall good value.

      A good £20 taxi fare away from Thetford, that's if you can get hold of a taxi at night time in these parts. This is no reflection on the hotel, just a location issue if you need to get out of the village.

      Nice hotel/pub. Staff friendly and helpful. Food Good. Easy to find. Comfortable and a bit quirky as room location scattered surrounding building making it interesting. Very clean and homely.

      A clock radio would have been good in the room.

      Friendly staff, (answered questions well when asked) comfortable room, filling breakfast. Ideal for families.

      Not sure where the reception was, and if there was one, Went to the bar to get key. Did not know where to leave the key at the end of the stay - took it to the restaurant/breakfast room at the end. Needed directions within the room, as to where the breakfast room entrance is.

      Room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was very good and they did a lovely range of evening meals.

      Only down side was that no one cleaned our room the 3 days we stayed, so the tea and coffee supplies werent replenished.

    • Group of friends

      We stayed at the Crown for a visit to see family in Lakenheath so the location was ideal for us with only a twenty minute drive away.The village of Mundford is very quiet and peacefull with hardly any traffic at all around the area of the hotel so that was good. The room we stayed in was a good size, comfortable and clean. There is a good outdoor area in the gardens to sit and relax with a good pint of real ale. The best part of our stay was the food served in the good sized restaurant. The food was cooked to perfection on both nights we stayed plus it was one of the best breakfasts i have ever had in a hotel, bacon and sausages were superb!!

      We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and walked into the hotel to check in to find no reception area but a crowded bar and no bar staff to help us so we found this to be a problem as we had to wait a while for someone to see us. Our rooms were in the adjacent coach house so it was a bit noisy when it was kicking out time in the pub on Saturday evening. The hotel and guest rooms are crying out for a bit of TLC if only to smarten up the appearance a little but overall it is was a kind of place that grew on you and overall we enjoyed our stay at the Crown.

      We had a great room and the meal was really excellent. We ended up eating too much!

    • Family with children

      The family room had a separate room for our son which was brilliant. Lots of space and travel cots set up when we arrived which really helped.
