The Crown in Old Amersham, situated at the end of the Metropolitan Line and 40 minutes from London, is the second in a family of modern day coaching inns recently renovated by the designer Ilse Crawford (other works include Babington House). The old timber building is situated in the centre of the historic market town, attracting locals, restaurant guests and night time travelers. The inn’s interior is made up of rural materials – from Ercol chairs made in High Wycombe to traditional plaster made from lime and horsehair. The ‘back room’ with its inglenook fire and view of the cobbled courtyard is perfect for private gatherings and feasting of up to 40, while the bar and restaurant area is the communal heartbeat of the inn. The kitchen serves seasonally inspired, locally sourced food with in-between times satisfied with home baked cheese scones and fruit cake with Cashel Blue while the main menus changes daily.

Lovely stay in the more modern accommodation in a detached building to the rear of the hotel. Superking bed, a luxury. The quality of the Breakfast was great. Attentive staff in all areas of the hotel and bar.

For a getaway from London, we have never found a better place than The Crown in Olde Amersham (and we have explored many options within two hours of the City). This was our 3rd trip and certainly won't be our last!

Love it here, so cosy, quiet, perfect setting for a catch up with friends, stunning building, old but warm welcoming. Quiet when we went, i was surprised it doesn't get busier. Outdoors with seating, perfect for summer also.

The hotel is a lovely old building with good ambience. Unfortunately the bar staff are slow and poorly trained apart from the older gentleman who is excellent, polite and professional. However if he is not at the front of house standards slip. They need continuity of staff. You

This is a very historic building so I imagine installing disability access to the first floor rooms in the main hotel might have implications. However the accommodation in the annexes are excellent. Worth a visit!

Do you have a hoist available?
Cathy, I am one of the owners. We can put an iron and board in the room and also a small fridge (we have a few spare for long stay guests). We even have one spare domestic microwave, though obviously we hope you will let us cater for you! I would suggest one of our larger rooms so that you have space for all this. Do contact me or Yasmin Russel our reception manager via the e-mail on the website.Please let me know if you need further information.
