Good 6.0
ok but not as good as it’s been on past visits.
Usually a great stay... but a few issues creeping in! The room, 2 doubles, was smaller than we’ve had before - still a decent size, but with the chair st the desk you couldn’t actually get around to the side of one of the beds. Room service was poor and breakfast in our room annoyingly got bits of the order wrong... nothing major but easy things like ordered brown toast and they sent white, order fruit and fibre cereal and they send Frosties!! Just not paying attention!

Fair 4.0
great quiet location but room stinks
The location was great and the hotel looked really ood, only thing is the room had such a strong odour that we had to completely spray it when we arrived. We alerted staff to it and they said that they weren't sure what it was and they would freshen the room when we came back. When we came back we opened the door and the smell hit us straight away like it had not been dealt with we couldn't open the window as it had been bolted shut. We then alerted staff again and a colleague came up to spritz the carpet with spray to which it did nothing. We had to stay the night as we could not make alternative arrangements. When leaving we told staff the issue and they said they wouldn't check further customers into the room which annoyed me as I didn't get the same treatment for such a pricey room. It was an uncomfortable stay due to the smell and staff were not helpful but couldn't fault the hotel otherwise. I would return if they were certain I wouldn't be in a room like that one

IHG status not valid through
At this particular Crown Plaza, IHG status is rejected if you booked through This even includes a friendly IHG welcome! That’s right I was not even greeted as an IHG member (Spite Elite) because I made the booking via Asked to see a manager but never managed to speak to one to ask about the policy at this particular hotel. Be warned! Everything else was great but hotel policy towards IHG member really needs to be readdressed. I for one will NOT be staying here again.

A pleasant stay in London
I decided to book a more upmarket hotel for the overnight stay in London to ensure that the room would be of a high standard. I was not disappointed. The ‘standard’ room was a decent size with a HUGE double bed and standing lamp, armchair & footstool in the corner. Crowne Plaza has a slogan that it’s the little things that matter (or words to that effect) and they mean it. There’s the usual dressing gown and slippers and a whole range of toiletries. Then there’s the tea and coffee tin that has more than your usual number of supplies and with a chocolate bar too! The bar fridge is also nice to have. The bed and pillows were very comfortable indeed. There’s a lovely garden and bar out back which is a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of Cromwell Road. Although the room faced onto Cromwell Road, the traffic noise was barely noticeable. Room service food was tasty and of a good standard. However, when I tried to get their advertised 24-hour room service, there was no reply on any of the phone numbers. When I eventually went down to reception, I was told to go across the road to Tesco Express for food. That was disappointing. As for car parking, I booked a place in the Millenium Hotel parking garage (through JustPark) just around the corner.
