We have stayed in many Crowne Plaza hotels as we are IHG members and you do expert a certain standard. The hotel is on a busy main road but the kerb appeal just doesnt exist, although you have to walk upstairs to the main entrance the bottom of the stairs were always really dirty with rubbish and fast food wrappers lying around, further down they are an entrance with double glass doors which were also extremely dirty this gives a really bad impression of the hotel. I know the entrances are on public paths but you would think that the hotel would keep it clean. On entering check in (after walking through a large dis-used part of the hotel lobby which was used as a dumping ground)the girl was on facebook and looked as if we had disturbed her!!! The room was very nice as we had a river view, we ate breakfast everyday in the hotel and we had an evening meal which was very good as well as the service just unfortunate that the dining room was empty! The hotel is well situated you are across from the Casino and the tram station and it is a lovely walk into the city.
