“intimate, comfortable, tranquil "home"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

my husband and I visited this amazing hotel and were welcomed by two of the most gentle and warm people, Mark and Julie.
The food and any other service made one feel like you are the only guest there. Other staff members were lovely, easy to talk to and helpful.
After the busy streets of Skegnees and lovely night life, you come back to that lovely corner and you are met with tranquilitiy.
thank you guys. mathilda and joel

Room Tip: our room was not seaview, but it did not matter. we still enjoyed the peace

This is the first time we have stopped at The Crawford Hotel and it was a pleasant surprise. We had read that the hotel was under restructure and you can see where there is still work to be done but we thought the hosts were lovely and very accommodating. The decor probably was not all to our taste but the hotel was very clean and we thought the pool and jacuzzi was fabulous. We started the night with a drink in the Diablo bar before going into Skegness. The bed in the room was so comfortable and top marks on the cooked breakfast. We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: The room we had didn't have much of a view which was not a problem to us but the hotel does offe...

I think that this is the proprieter's first season, and their inexperience showed. Maybe they should watch 'The Hotel Inspector' for a few tips? Potentially the hotel could be quite good, the pool area is excellent but unfortunately we could not use it due to a faulty boiler; but this was not explained to us prior to our arrival or at our check-in. Also, I feel they need to invest in a new chef as the breakfast was not very good and at no stage did anyone ask if our breakfast was ok. I have stayed in three different hotels in the last six months - The Stoneleigh, The Royal and this one; we like to try different hotels and the other two were far superior to this. We chose this hotel for the pool complex, but as I said, this was not available to us. We had a drink in the bar area when we arrived which was quite good so we decided to have a drink in the bar at night and on both occasions at 9:30 the bar was closed. The proprieter's seemed very nice and I hope their business venture is a success but once again, their inexperience showed.

Stayed 13th/14th April 2012, really enjoyed our stay, nothing was too much trouble for Mark, Julie and the staff. They were still renovating the hotel when we were there but once all the work is finished it will be excellent. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were a bonus and made our weekend special. Looking forward to staying again later in the year, only hope they are not fully booked when we are able to do so! We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone, infact their brochure is currently displayed on the noticeboards at work. Every room is unique, comfortable and well decorated. Thanks Julie and Mark for the upgrade ! and a really Great Weekend!

We went to the crawford for my wifes birthday, and are glad we did. On arrival we were met by Julie and Marc, with a great big smile, what lovely people..we were shown to our room, and to be honest, what a room..absolutely gorgeous, alot of effort and care has gone into creating that certain ambience, within our room. Julie showed us around the hotel, the pool etc,The service at this hotel was excellent, the food was great, enough to fill even the hungriest of appetites, nothing was a problem...the other staff were very helpful also, we really felt at home...didnt want to leave, there is a saying on the reception desk " arrive as strangers, leave as friends"..and this definitely applies to this hotel, what a lovely couple...thanks Julie and Marc for a fab weekend, will definitlely recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

After reading the other reviews i thought i would give them a chance omg!
We had a horrible stay in the crawford the room was not ready , the shower was cold and came from the wall to name just a few of a long list of problems and when we brought it to the attention of Julie and Marc i received an apology by email and then went on to be very rude and insulting to me and my partner and they ended by offering a refund ....... still waiting for refund
