Having stayed in Crowne Plaza in various locations in the UK and abroad I was less than enthused by the lack lustre welcome and complete absence of porterage. On arrival there was no one to help with luggage - bearing in mind there is no on site parking it is a challenge to unload and move the car to the ever so ropey NCP nearby. Room was fine, if a little noisy. The executive lounge is a bit of an oasis, lovely waiting staff, even if it could do with a serious make over. Breakfast is of the usual standard, although one can source better within a few hundred yards for 1/3 of the price. The gym is really spartan and frankly not of the standard of our little local hotel at home. As a platinum reward holder we were allowed a late check out which was a bonus. Would stay again, but we reckon the service could be improved.
