Stayed at the crown for one night, and can’t say I was overly impressed.
The hotel has clearly been recently refurbished. But in my opinion this has been done on the cheap. The room was very large and there was plenty of room for a cot for our 18 month old son. However, the bed was small, the carpet looked cheap and the room was very sparsely furnished, sounds like I’m being very picky, which I suppose I am, but there was just something about the room, furniture and layout that just said cheap hotel.
The main areas of the hotel were nice, reception were helpful, breakfast was good, plenty of choice etc. Our evening meal was served in “The Place” which is a bistro/bar used by hotel guests and open to the public. We started dinner 7 and in the beginning everything was fine. Nice atmosphere of informal dining, however the place was totally understaffed, there were only three staff to run bar and restaurant. From receiving a desert menu to getting food on the table took 45 minutes and I had to go to the bar myself to order, as the staff were now concentrating efforts on serving drinks. We mentioned this as we checked out and the reception staff were very apologetic and clearly new this to be an issue even stating “I know we sometimes have to go and help them out”, having said all that the food was very nice.
So to summarise, I would say the crown is very average. I can’t say I would strongly advise people not to stay at the Crown, however, I know I will not be returning.
