Fodor's Expert Review The Crown Hotel

The Buttlands, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, NR23 1EX, England

Overlooking a tiny park in the middle of Wells-next-the-Sea, this cozy little hotel and restaurant is owned by New Zealand–born TV chef Chris Coubrough. Guest rooms are stylish, bright, and comfortable; larger rooms have king-size beds. The wonderful restaurant serves traditional British fare: Norfolk mussel with white wine and garlic cream sauce, followed by roast cod, or maybe beef short ribs with mashed potato.

PROS

  • cozy atmosphere

  • wonderful beds

CONS

  • some rooms on the small side
  • some bathrooms are Lilliputian
