“Old world charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

A lovely old building with a charm all of its own. The lobby is remeniscent of the thirties and forties elegance while the rooms are modern and confortable. Breakfast had an excellent choice of food and the service was good. The hotel is situated in the town centre close to many of the local places of interest. The only downside was there was two wedding receptions that evening so it was very noisy until the early hours which apparently was unusual.

Excellent central location with the benefit of free parking! Excellent combination of beautiful old features in the main areas but rooms very modern! Good selection of food at breakfast. Only critisism is that while the rooms are lovely and warm there is no opportunity to open a window for ventilation. Otherwise would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for room on the front just for a nice view of the centre. However the window does not open to m...

We stayed in Harrogate on Tuesday night and decided to stay at this hotel mainly due to it's location, right on a roundabout and a very well lit front car park.

The hotel decoration is very nice as are the rooms , the only issue I had was whoever was staying in the room above ours, room 250, on Tuesday night was proberly doing ZUMBA all night as the floor boards were creeking when they were moving about the room .

This is a really stylish hotel set in a wonderful, historic building sympathetically restored and run in a modern and efficient manner. We were very impressed with in interior of the hotel, some beautiful features and the Churchill room where breakfast is served was a very grand, spacious room. Breakfast was superb in every way, from the waiters to the choice of food.
The staff were courteous to a fault, the room was clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The only negative were the creaking floorboards in the bedroom, but given the age of the building what did we expect!!??
There is a small car park to the front of the hotel which we were lucky enough to get into - there is plenty of other parking very near by.
I cannot offer enough praise for the Crown.

Stayed at the Crown for a few days recently. Really central location in Harrogate. Stayed in room 228 on the second floor at the front of the hotel. The first room we were shown was at the back. Although it was a bigger room and probably less traffic noise, it was a bit dark and we wanted a room with whatever view was available. Receptionist found us another room without hesitation.This room was better and had a pleasant view across to Monpellier Hill and the Stray. The room was very clean and bright although with creaky floorboards. Bed comfortable (soft, bouncy mattress) Some traffic noise at night with window open. Good selection of food at breakfast buffet and staff attentive and helpful. Downside is the parking. We were lucky to find a space in the hotel car park on arrival Wednesday afternoon and stayed put until Friday afternoon. Had to park in the NCP car park across the road on return - £11 for 24 hours! Apparently the hotel will supply you with a parking disc which means you can park pretty much anywhere close by but you have to ask them about this. Hotel has quite a history which is shown in the pictures around the hotel. Overall a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have noise from traffic but are brighter.

We went here for a murder mystery weekend. The hotel was absolutely lovely. Very clean, comfortable and well located. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. Lots of choice and the hot food was cooked to perfection. The only let down in the parking, so good luck with that.

Reception staff were friendly and polite and seemed always available. Disappointed by the lack of parking spaces. There was a wedding reception going on which made it a bit difficult to get to different parts of the hotel without squeezing past their guests who were obviously enjoying themselves. The rooms seemed really nice to start with but after staying for one night, to be honest, they werent that good. We didnt pay anywhere near the usual tariff, but had we done, I would have been rating the hotel way down. Although the bathroom and bedroom was clean, other things let it down like the floorboards constantly creeked, everywhere you walked. Thankfully we were on the 3rd floor, but had we not been, I think it would have been awful. Beds werent as comfortable as you would expect for an hotel of this calibre. The noise from next door was like they were actually staying in our room and I had to bang on the wall when they came in shouting at 3am. I was amazed by the rowdiness and screaming and shouting of nightclubbers out on the street. I guess the location of the hotel meant this was unavoidable, but the hotel could have had double glazing at least. The noise was constant (saturday night) from about 11.30 til 3.30 and I got no sleep. Breakfast was excellent. An extensive range of continental items and help yourself cooked items. The waitress brought tea and coffee to the table. Couldnt fault the breakfast at all, lovely large dining room and high quality food. We dined in The Place, the hotel's bistro bar in the evening. The service and food was excellent. Very enjoyable, and good value. We were thinking that we would come again after first impressions, but I doubt it now as I wouldnt want to risk a bedroom with guests above, or stay on a weekend because of the noise outside where the hotel fails to have double glazing. Shame really.
