My husband and I stayed at the Lord Crewe in April 2014..We booked two nights on a recommendation from a relative. The hotel is more of a pub/restaurant with rooms above. When we arrived there was no parking so had to park on a side street. We entered the pub side and had a hearty welcome by lovely staff, pub light and airy with fab decor and our first impressions were good. Had a lovely sunday roast lunch, veg lovely and crisp and beautifully presented. We were shown to our room and immediately disappointed. The room was pokey and dull with not even a picture on the wall. Decoration a bit tired and dark. Our bathroom if you could call it that was tiny with a pathetic sink that you couldn't even clean your teeth in because it was so small and the tap stuck over it so you couldn't wash your face..toothpaste ended up on your feet! Saying that the shower was fantastic and hot water endless. Our bed throw was dirty with stains on and that upset us both so we took it off and the sheets were clean underneath. Bed was comfy. No reading light to read when one of you wants to sleep and the other read. Dinner in the restaurant was wonderful the food perfect as was breakfast. Told housekeeping about the throw and they apologised and offered to replace it which we declined as preferred just clean sheets. Mentioned the sink and the staff were aware that the sink was useless but didn't offer to change our room. I can't fault the staff as they were so lovely but I wouldn't recommend staying here due to the room...When I booked I was told you either had a room with a shower or a bath..I prefer a bath and my hubby a shower..so I booked the shower then I was told by a member of staff the baths have showers over them..so again was disappointed. You don't want to be out walking then not be able to wash your face or clean your teeth properly and then lie in a dull lifeless room....This could be a fab place with a little extra thought to the rooms.
