    Location

    Hotel reception staff were pleasent, however we felt they could have provided more info on dining options including breakfast. I am not a regular user of hotels and felt uncomfortable asking for nfo.There was no conversation at all. There was rubbish left outside my room from day before, and I was disappointed that staff had already started to clean my room before I checked out as we had 1100 check out time. We returned at 0945 from breakfast to find the door open and mops and vacum cleaner in doorway. I had however put my bag in my daughters room next door.I Also booked 2 twin rooms and got 2x double rooms.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The room was smallish but very clean and comfortable.

    The carpark was a 5 minute walk from the hotel, the directions given in the carpark to get to the hotel were inaccurate as they left you loitering in a building foyer area which was closed. Many other hotels and motels offer free internet, but the Crowne Plaza does not.

    Location

    There was a mix up with my booking and I got a twin room instead of a queen size. I was told there was nothing they could do and they offered me a free morning paper which I never received.
