We found the staff in the reception very friendly, attentive and professional, nothing was too much for them. We were informed that our room was in the outside the main building and were not happy at all but the manager on duty found another room (upgraded) without delay and escorted us, we have had a very comfy stay The food was great and the service very friendly, even in such a busy restaurant...
SPA and leisure facilities up to our expectations....
We will definitely be back soon!!!!

Brilliant from start to finish!


11. Oktober 2014

Our stay at crown plaza, from start to finish was absolutly brilliant.
As soon as you walk in the atmosphere is nice and relaxed and welcomed by the staff who through out our stay were very helpful .
When we got to the room we arrived to a bottle of wine which was a nice touch and the room it's self was lovely, exactly what It showed on the website, and very clean, again could not fault.
Also during our stay my girlfriend & I enjoyed an hour spa treatment which was included, and also dinner on the night of arrival which we really enjoyed.
Overall I would definatly recommend this hotel and will definatly be returning!

Golf Weekend


11. Oktober 2014

First golf weekend away, 15 of us, easy to book direct with hotel, and with a large number in our group it was made easy by payment on arrival. Sports bar only had one small screen, restaurant for evening meal and bars for drinking all had a very nice presentation and atmosphere, although under staffed for drinks, a long wait to be served, this was also the case in what was quite an empty night at Club Pulse!
Overall the staff was very helpful, let down by only a few that didn't show much emotion will serving drinks/food in the sports bar. We paid for executive rooms, but were not informed about the exclusive area with complimentary drinks and services ( I have seen this advertised since the visit ). Golf side of things, staff helpful, golf courses very nice, fast greens! handicaps between 12 and 28 so playable for all levels, really nice to have 2 courses on door step. Would recommend this venue to others, good value for money, but will try somewhere different next time.
