Stay With Us
The Crown Hotel is situated in the unique Georgian market town of Blandford Forum, in the heart of Dorset and Thomas Hardy country. There is plenty of fascinating history to discover, a step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for those looking to escape for a while.
This beautiful country town house has stood on the foundations in one guise or another for over two centuries. A coaching house, inn and bar and restaurant, the Crown Hotel is a well-established hub of the community. The house may have changed to a hotel but the traditional features, such as its beautiful ornate ceilings, panelled walls, oak floors and blue tiled staircase feature to this day.
With the rolling Dorset country side on the door step, the Crown is a must for those looking to explore and unwind.
The Crown Hotel has 27 well-appointed ensuite rooms, which are made up of twin, double and family rooms, all featuring luxurious Sealy mattresses (the same as can be found in The White House). All rooms offer tea and coffee facilities and free Wifi (subject to availability), as well as a smartTV and digital radio for your entertainment.
For an even more luxurious stay, the Luxury Rooms are perfect. Ask a team member when booking for more information.
Room service is available for a surcharge.
We love dogs, as all good inns should, however to consider the comfort of all of our guests, we have special rooms allocated to these needs. Guests wishing to bring dogs overnight must check before booking if dog-friendly rooms are available. Please note that there is an additional charge for accompanying pets.
All rooms included a full English breakfast in the morning, which is freshly cooked to order, as well as an indulgent cold spread of fruits, bread, yoghurts and juices.
Breakfast is served from 7am until 9:30am Mon-Fri and 8am until 10am weekends and Bank Holidays, so that you can have that well deserved lie in.
Check in on arrival day is from 2pm and checkout is up until 11am, giving you time to enjoy breakfast and prepare for the day ahead.
