This was my third visit to the crowne plaza. My first visit was back before they had the refurb and even then it was a lovely hotel. Now they seem to have fully refurbed the whole hotel, and wow it not only has changed loads but it looks amazing!
On our last visit we booked a club room and got a very good rate for it. The room was a good size, nice bathroom, nice comfy bed, bit of a rubbish view (at the back of the hotel) but that didnt bother us too much. However I dont think I would have been too pleased if I'd have paid the normal rate which was over £200 a night, mainly just because of a few little niggles, 'wobbley' fittings in the bathroom, and the fact the main doors to the bedrooms dont seem to have anything on them to stop them banging when people are coming and going and it is very very loud!
We had some noisey guests next door, there seemed to be about 10 people in one room which sounded like they were moving furniture around! It wasnt that late but went on for well over an hour and when you've come away to chill out it is a bit annoying. My partner decided to go down to reception and let them know about it. One of the receptionists went up to the room straight away with a securit guard and the situation was sorted out with no problem at all. Although as I expected, when the guests arrived back at 4am from their night out their front door banging shut woke me up.
We had some drinks in the bar when we returned from dinner and I had a couple of cosmopolitans, which although werent cheap was a decent sized drink and was one of the best cocktails i've ever had. Breakfast the next morning was also good although they had no pastries when we were there.
I would definitely return for my 4th visit, the location is faultless, easy access from the main road and to the car park, but make sure you get a good deal on the room rate!
