We travelled to Crowne Plaza in Edinburgh with my sisters for my mums Birthday using a voucher deal, including Afternoon Tea and use of Spa facilities. Hotel itself is lovely, very well decorated and modern, reception staff friendly. We went to gym at 12, very small but was fine for the 4 of us, then used the pool. The ladies changing room is tiny, including 1 shower,1 toilet and lockers( £10 deposit each), no actual changing rooms so if there's more than 2 people at a time its tight squeeze. The gym, pool and changing room were all roasting, uncomfortabley warm, luckily there was cold water and towels available in the gym. We were hungry and looking forward to the afternoon tea that was booked for 3pm, but were disappointed to have to wait for over 45 minutes until we were served, given only 1 pot of tea or coffee while we wait, no apology from the waitress!! Once it finally arrived it was fine, cakes were nice enough, sandwiches not great, bread a bit hard as if it had been sitting out even though it took 45 minutes to serve us! Think there should have been crisps or other savoury food available as a lot of sweet cakes were sickly. Overall, We enjoyed our girls day out, but felt there was no need to have been left waiting for so long just for a few sandwiches and cakes. Just glad we had a voucher as would not have paid full price for this service!
