We were in Harrogate for two weeks as I had to have a minor operation which left me needing special bathroom facilities. The Crown was perfectly located close to both the hospital and a physio centre and the extremely helpful staff on reception identified a perfect large suite with a walk in shower for us, looking out towards parkland. Our stay was not a holiday but it was a pleasure with very attentive staff and a comfortable room in an ideal location to easily reach Betty's and the Turkish Baths and the excellent Orchid restaurant.
The only small gripe concerned the otherwise very generous breakfast. We always see two menu items as a good indication of quality...sadly the hotel failed on both counts. The orange juice was not freshly squeezed and the croissants were stodgy and inedible.
My other strong suggestion would be a welcoming log fire in the winter in the empty grate in the vast reception area.
It is a great hotel ...provided you are happy with traditional style ....but some attention to details would push it up to a higher bracket of excellence.
