Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 406 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average Stay Room comfortable and well appointed and clean. Staff very friendly and professional. Drinks and food overpriced. Steaks at £20 each (with one side dish) then £3 each thereafter. Ended up with fish and chips for £15 ! albeit sent back because of tepid chips. Wine that I buy at retail for £7 a bottle being sold for over £9 per 250ml glass. Not happy at having to pay £16 for wifi access (later removed from the final bill) and certainly not happy to be charged £10 to park my car July 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by poor breakfast Stayed one night room and service were good paid extra for breakfast. Very dissappointed. Chef couldnt cook a decent fried egg all hard a rubbery, cheap quality sausages, slimy mushrooms really not worth £12.95 and that was a reduced price normally £15.95. Such a shame as nice hotel and great location if going to LG arena July 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect in every way We only stopped for one night in the hotel as we attended a concert nearby and took the opportunity to chill out before and after the event rather than rush. In saying that we immediately felt like we were almost on holiday .the room was so comfortable and relaxing we felt settled in as soon as we arrived so much so that we found it hard to leave the next day and wished we'd booked all weekend,we relaxed in the bar the night before after the concert and we're surprised by the reasonable prices charged,you always expect to pay more at these venues for the service they give but this was not the case here. We shall certainly consider the experience again next time we book a concert. Well done to everybody at Crown Plaza. July 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great reception, really helpful staff, great room All in the title really No complaints at all, Staff really helpful very good standards throughout July 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Poor service compensated I stayed at the Crowne Plaza with two friends as we were going to a concert at the LG Arena. We booked a table in the restaurant for 5pm to ensure we had plenty of time to eat before the concert. Our meal did not arrived until 6pm. The restaurant was not particularly busy and when we complained we were given 3 different feeble excuses as to why the food had taken so long.. We had no complains about the food, just the service. When we checked out we noticed there was a service charge added to the restaurant bill that we had been unaware of. We mentioned this to the member of staff on reception (he was new and I think his name was Mark) and he immediately deducted this from the bill. He was very apologetic and his helpful and kind attitude made up for the problems we'd had the previous evening. July 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by food Dinner and breakfast was extremely bland, other than that it was fine. Payment for internet is ridiculous, as every other hotel i have stayed in the internet access is free. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice room, partial lake view, nice clean comfortable room, plenty of light, well equipped with tea set etc, good service bar gets a bit congested at times, all in all a very enjoyable stay. June 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Check they have some food in When we tried to dine in the restaurant we were told it was closed as it was quiet and then the bar menu was missing a number of dished! June 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One nights stay Great place to stay, staff are friendly and the rooms clean, the only problem was the cooked breakfast it didn't taste very nice. other then that the stay was very nice and I would recommend to a friend. June 29, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Room Very Hot and Noisy Room was very hot no air conditioning did not work. We were woken up at 4.30 in the morning by staff emptying the bottles this went on for ages followed by a lorry with the engine running all this happen before 7.00am which meant no sleep from 4.30am. Better get your act together or we will find another hotel especially as there is a new hotel opening up next door We have stayed here several times and this is the worst experience we have ever had . June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leisure Stay This hotel is well placed for a visit to the LG Arena. It is appropriately priced and the staff service was excellent. Everyone - from the guard at the barrier to the reception staff - was very helpful and had a good attitude towards guests. June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overnight Stay Convenient for the NEC. Unable to check in early which meant a long day and then check in. Rooms were grubby and in need of a deep clean. Carpets especially grubby and would have been nice to provide slippers for this reason. Sockets within reach of a mirror and chair would be good so that you can plug in a hairdryer and not have to stand with the cable at full stretch. June 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Rooms, but very poor service I did stayed at this hotel on business and few times in a past as well. I have to say , although rooms are good service has been very poor. 1. Upon check in , No smile, no greeting. Not able to recognise that Car Parking & Internet included. 2. Sometime, upon check in, not been asked for a newspaper(which is a part of IHG reward membership), and if it was asked but not delivered in the morning. When phoned , got a message saying we will not charge for that. Not s single attempt to try and correct mistake. 3. In the lounge/bar, on the bar told that someone come and take your food order , but waited 15-20 mins, no shows. Finally had to place a order on the bar. Not a very good service at all. June 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Restful, comfortable, helpful and friendly Stayed here several times on business travel, always a top notch experience,comfortable, clean and welcoming. June 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brilliant Great clean room and bed. Breakfast was superb,staff friendly and helpful. Good nights sleep, Could not fault the service June 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality service and great breakfast We were greeted in a friendly helpful way. Our requirements were checked and the receptionist confirmed our requirements. The breakfast was exceptional for quality and value. The room was comfortable. I would stay at this particular hotel again. The staff were helpful, professional and genuine. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic staff I travelled as a single adult with a toddler and the staff could not have done more for me. They were possibly the most courteous I have ever come across. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and kids ate free, which was a bonus. I will definitely stay again. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Excellent hotel. Only change I would like is soap dispenser at basin and bath rather than fiddly soap and shampoo bottles. Food was perfect, wine good, overall great stay. Beds also good. June 18, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Nights Sleep Nice hotel, great staff, great food but expensive even by hotel standards. Drink £4.65 for a Gin and £1.60 for a tonic. Lovely, unusually hot summer weather for the UK however the air conditioning in our hotel room wasn't working correctly. Opening the window as wide as we could (around 3 inches, due to H June 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good overall experience We booked the hotel for two nights when we visited the BBC Food Show in Birmingham. The hotel is perfectly situated for the show, only a 10 minute walk to the show. We booked online which was quick and easy. Check-in was quick and the staff were excellent through out or stay. The room was comfortable and the tea, coffee and bottled water was much appreciated. Unfortunately there was extensive building work going on behind the hotel and our room which disturbed us at 6a.m. on the Friday morning but I do not blame the hotel for this and the building work should be complete by mid 2015. Food was very nice but very pricey however the breakfast buffet was comprehensive. My wife left behind her reading glasses which they found and posted back to us the next day. All in all a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A 5 Star Experience We used this hotel as our base to visit the NEC and it exceeded all our expectations. The staff provided us with a stay which left us so refreshed and relaxed we did not want to check out. We will definitely be returning to this hotel again when we are in this area again. Thank you June 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Free apples and toothbrush The things that stuck in my memory were the bowl of fresh apples on the front desk for visitors and being able to get a replacement toothbrush. So double-win for the teeth. June 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Concert I should have taken them up on the offer of a wake-up call. Slept so soundly I slept right through my alarm. Should have gotten up at 6, but slept through to 735. Had to be on the road by 730. Oops. Missed breakfast too... June 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First Visit Property is well run and maintained. Lack of local commercial area. Good restaurant with excellent steaks and excellent breakfast. June 8, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by will not be returning given i told the guy who checked me out that id rate the hotel a 4 out of 5 I'm surprised i've been contacted to review the hotel. i would have been expecting that someone might get in touch to apologise for the room which has wall paper beginning to peel off the wall and unclean grouting in the bathroom. June 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything we needed it to be. From the time of booking through talking to the hotel on the phone prior to arrival and leaving the following morning we can honestly say we could not fault this place. The staff were really polite and helpful. All areas were clean and bright. Room service good value and punctual. Breakfast perfect. We came to the Eagles concert and this was the perfect place to make the trip complete. Well done Crown Plaza. June 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What I expect of the Crowne Plaza brand Having stayed at Crowne Plaza resorts before this was the first time I'd stayed at the NEC venue, and I was not disappointed. I was greeted efficiently and warmly upon my arrival. Check in seemed more of a pleasure than a chore to staff. Had a great view, as requested over the lake. Room was exceptionally clean, bathroom was relatively modern, however I felt the only downside was the room was slightly dated. Aside from that everything else in the room was exactly what I expect from the brand. Room service was easy to order and was with us in no time delivered by a friendly member of staff. There was a slight delay in checking out as there only seemed to be one member of staff dealing with 3 couple's check outs. All in all I was impressed, and would recommend this hotel to anyone in the area not only for brand, but ideal location too. June 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by so near... so near lg arena so perfect so near to a great stay .. but .. on arrival I had booked a suite the bedroom was prepared but the lounge was not and I could not access it as interconnecting door was locked , waited an hour for 2 sandwiches , and spent two lots of 15 minutes waiting to be served at bar.. (avoid the steak sandwich!) staff FANTASTIC pleasant , helpful especially phillipa and kineta? service style does not help the staff , you cannot man a bar and take orders and run food and take payments and do satisfaction checks..that just sets the staff up to fail in the first place , I would use again but the managers need to help the staff achieve the goals that Crowne plaza want (ie 10 rating) June 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good location for concerts in LG Arena We came from Marseilles ( France ) to see The Eagles on stage so we had to drive from Gatwick to The NEC. The location is great to go and see a concert at the Lg Arena( 3 hundred metres from the hotel ), in the NEC, the parking is convinient and the included Breakfast is excellent, we've booked two Queen Size Lake vue Rooms , the bed was comfortable and the room very quiet. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent stay! The Crowne Plaza is very easy to get to,as soon as you come into the Nec/Lg arena area you can see it. Car parking was tight,but maybe that is because building work is going on. Originally we had bought concert tickets with parking then decided to stay over later. You will still have to pay £10 for a night stay over, as the Nec/Lg arena parking cost is totally different. The Hotel was really busy but checking in was very smooth. Hotel members have their own check in. We were told we had been upgraded to a lakeside view,but I had already requested that when booking. You also have a choice of free paper and wake up call in the morning. We were hoping to go for a meal before we went on to our concert, but were told The restaurant was fully booked until 19.45pm the concert started at 20.00pm. So we decided on room service. The room was very clean and fresh, and a nice view across the lake. Unfortunately building work is still going on the left side of us,we were in room 532 it was quiet,we heard no building work at all. Tea,coffee,hot chocolate,bottled water and ice bucket were available. With two mini chocolates and snack biscuits. The kettle was in a drawer. Also the hair drier was tucked away in the desk. In the wardrobe ample hanging space.dressing gown,extra pillow and duvet. Also mini shampoo,conditioner,moisturiser soap, shoe buff,shower cap in the bathroom. We ordered room service as the Restaurant was very busy. There is a good choice from starters,mains dessert and childrens. We ordered two club sandwiches,two portions of garlic bread,stella and rum and coke which came to £41.70 which included tray service £3.75. The potions were very good. The food came in 30 mins. It is only a ten minute walk,if that, to the Lg/Nec arena but be-careful of the geese droppings they are in abundance near the Hotel/lake. The Hotel bar on return at 23.00pm was packed,and a queue for the lift. Looking at the amount of people in the Hotel we decided to get up early for breakfast. Having a good nights sleep. For breakfast there are notices doted about pre-warning of the quiet-busier times to visit the buffet. 07.30 was quieter. A very good choice from cereal,juice, smoothies,fresh bread,warm croissant,toast,fruit,cheeses and of course good ole'English. Overall stay was really really nice. I would definitely stay again. The hotel itself was bright,fresh and clean and staff were very helpful and friendly. Very convenient for the Airport and a shuttle bus is available. June 3, 2014
