Having found the Crowne Plaza group we have now stayed in the Plaza hotels in Liverpool, Glasgow and now Reading. The hotels are nicely appointed, quality Bedrooms with a superb sleep quality having
very comfortable beds.
The Breakfasts are wonderful with a huge selection of food. I cannot state about evening meals as most of the time we are out.
The leisure facilities in all Plazas we have stayed at, are very nice and you feel very relaxed after visiting the pool etc. Staff at the Crowne Plaza are very polite and attentive but without being intrusive. Everyone is only too pleased to see to help in any way they can, the customers they serve.
It's good to get into their rewards scheme as discounts are available if you book through their own site. The costs can be less than staying in a normal bed and breakfast property if you book in good time.
The review does indeed give praise as I feel our trips have all been very good and enjoyable stays. However, i do have one gripe and that is the cost of their parking charges. In Liverpool and Glasgow they are vey high and to be honest I begrudge paying this fee for a small piece of tarmac. Having said that, at the moment there is no parking charge at Reading. Perhaps it may be something to do with the fact the gates are broken so the car ;park is left open. Come on IHG drop the parking charge. [Less]
