Pre arranged a disabled room with walk-in shower facilities. Arrived at hotel and was told NO rooms with walk-in shower facilities. I was allocated a room with a bathroom with red cords as you expect but a normal sized bath with shower above!!! Am I expected to not wash??? Completed the dietary requirements on the form at check-in with food allergy. What happened, breakfast arrived with an allergy item rendering the entire hot breakfast only fit for the bin. Lunch, it you can call it that. Basically junk food. 1 white bread sandwich with a tin of fizzy soda, packet of crisps and a chocolate bar. No brown bread, fruit or nuts. Room freezing, fan available in room but no heater. The most distressing days of my life, being told I can not leave my room unless escorted by a random stranger who has obviously more rights than me despite having 6 negative covid test and a covid vaccine. I have not been on holiday, I do not deserve to be treated this way.

We had booked our hotel via an online booking site months ago but due to covid the booking could not be kept. The site wouldn't give the option to change the date and cancellation would have cost us. we had no choice but to go to the hotel for them to turn us away. Atul Kakrej was on reception and he helped. He could have just sent us on our way and left us to sort a refund ourselves. He didn't do this, he used the hotel phone to call the site, explained it was the hotel cancelling our booking and arranged an immediate refund from the site. We had no hassle and went home happy we hadn't lost our money. Well done to crowne plaza for going above and beyond to help customers. Because of Atul's lovely manner, helpfulness and professionalism we will be re-booking as soon as covid19 allows.

For business I have had to stay at this hotel during the pandemic. I have to say the staff are friendly and they are following COVID regulations really well. A special mention to the reception team as they are always super helpful. The rates are amazing at the moment so treat yourself to a suite!

I have been staying at this hotel over the past few months whilst I setup a new office near the Hotel. I have found the staff brilliant and friendly during a very difficult period and also found the rooms and food very good. The rules are clear and I have been looked after very well each time I have stayed here. Would love to be in the bar at night but rules are rules and either way I do have an enjoyable stay. The food menu has recently been expanded and the breakfast continental menu is great value for money. I am an IHG member and I will be working local for a number of years so I look forward to many more stays in better circumstances
