Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The 12th-century Westleton Crown is in the Suffolk village of Westleton, within the Yox Valley. Inside this "charming" (The AA Hotel Guide 2017) hideaway you'll find cosy nooks where you can leaf through the hotel's books, and a huge map on the wall for planning local walks. Expect wood burners, beamed ceilings, exposed brickwork and rustic furnishings.

You can dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant or in the traditional bar. The kitchen uses produce from local butchers and fishermen, and the chefs bake fresh bread every morning. The hotel also holds an AA Notable Wine List 2016-2017 accolade for its diverse selection of high-quality wines.

Best Rooms have roll-top baths big enough for two people, duck-down duvets and free Wi-Fi. Dogs are welcome for £7.50 per night, and are given biscuits and a blanket on arrival.

The 2.7-mile walk from The Westleton Crown to The Ship at Dunwich takes you through Westleton Heath National Nature Reserve, which is covered in swathes of pink heather. Minsmere -- owned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds -- is less than 10 minutes' drive away, and you can cycle along the nature trails through woodland or navigate the coastal lagoons on foot.

Southwold is less than 20 minutes' drive away, and it is home to a bustling harbour, a lighthouse and the Southwold Sailor's Reading Room -- a small maritime museum. Aldeburgh is also 20 minutes' drive from The Westleton Crown, and is famed for being the home of composer Benjamin Britten. Visit The Red House where he lived and worked, or walk along the shingle beach to see the pastel-coloured houses on the promenade.

We had a very nice room. The bathroom however did not have a shower only a roll top bath with hand held tap shower. Not good for less agile and laps. Offered smaller room with smaller bed which we declined. Better to sort this out on booking. We showered when we got home!!

It was a very good location for some interesting places to visit.

We do not have a dog and just wondered if they have any bedrooms where dogs are not allowed at any time. This would be good for us and probably make us more inclined to go back.

Missed having a proper shower , the bath was quite difficult to get in and out of. Dust on the bed head and the breakfast was just ok.
