Beautiful Grounds


24 March 2015


The Crowne was a comfortable stay, all of the necessary amenmedities where there and in a well designed setting.

The price and quality of the food is slightly lacking compared to nearby restaurants.

The noise level is also very loud if there are conferences and the pipes in my room where vibrating all night. However there is a quiet floor which I was re-located to and this was a blissful nights sleep.

Great restaurant Staff Joe and Eric


19 March 2015


Reception and Bar staff not offering a warm welcome, bar staff not friendly or welcoming whatsoever, the selection of food on offer over the last three months has become very stayed, no variation and of poor quality. Bring back the Chinese, Indian, Italian and Greek nights all offering a great choice.
