A very enjoyable stay but a pity about the shower/bath
The room, food and customer service were excellent BUT ( a little less controllable ) the shower was a nightmare... The control was broken and, as a result of this or a very obvious lack of hot water pressure ( or both ) the shower only delivered, a small amount of, cold water to the head ( the term power shower being a misnomer ) with some, tepid, water still running into the bath. As a result it was necessary to run a bath. This was unsatisfactory in itself but was made even worse by the length of time it took to run sufficient hot water.
The problem was reported at reception at Checkout and I was told that they would report it to Maintenance to look into it for the benefit of other guests using Room 12.

We’re sorry that you had a less than perfect stay at The Crown Hotel. First of all, thank you for kind comments about your room and our food and customer service. With regards to the shower, thank you for your feedback - we are having new boiler installed this week which we believe will rectify this issue.
