The Crown Hotel
Fine - nothing special.
Just lovely place - ticked all the boxes for me
I needed to find a quite place to work on a really difficult presentation away from noise and with lots of room to lay out lots of documents.
For me, when I do my best writing I also need a very beautiful environment where I can feel inspired. So I chose very carefully even though it was last minute and I as very, very lucky to get a large room/suite in The Courtyard. The space was just gorgeous with stairs up to a really large lofthouse kind of bedroom/lounge area. Furnishings are very minimalist but in a super stylish way (I have a real distaste of chintz so this suited me!) and I found it a really calm and soothing atmosphere.
Comfortable bed and feather pillows great - good to have fridge and safe box -bathroom good and lovely towels soaps etc but ventaxia in bathroom not working and report at desk not dealt with properly Food very good and service excellent dinner and breakfast but chairs are uncomfortable in the dining room - such a pity not to complement the food - more comfortable in the bar next time Reception desk service poor - hand overs with different staff not satisfactory -we experienced ia lack of training in this area,which is the first impression one gets on arrival after a journey.
What a shame.
- Lovely hotel/situation - Room OK, but a little sparse.
- As a female travelling alone on business, I do want to spend my evening in the bar and a room with just a bed, wardrobe, desk and work chair is a little inadequate. - A comfy chair would be nice. - A bit too much style over substance
Room although upgraded turned out to be of a poor standard, shower kept changing from very hot to freezing cold, bathroom blind fell from the ceiling when we tried to open it, lack of storage space and hanging space for clothes.
The breakfast buffet seemed like it had been cooked hours before and kept lukewarm even though we were eating before nine. There were some nice touches such as good quality toiletries, and high quality towels and bedding.
