Although this hotel is in a great location, and clearly has some history to it; unfortunately too many simple basics have also been left in the past. It's like stepping into a time capsule. The room was drab and stuffy, with wallpaper peeling off in places and mould growing in the grout on the bathroom tiles. The shower is just... More

The location is ideal and some of the public areas are elegant. Staff were polite. However our 'superior' room was hardly luxurious. It was a reasonable size but drab. Wine and chocolates were provided as advertised, but there was only one bathrobe. We had no drawers - just inadequate hanging spaces in the wardrobe. The bathroom was small with no... More

It's a shame that after at least eight reviews complaining about the hot, uncomfortable and stuffy rooms and the same number of subsequent replies from management that a fan is apparently available, that a fan is not simply a feature in each room. Come on management, why wait until paying customers are unhappy, please just put a fan in each... More

But this is a dated establishment. Like stepping back twenty years, this is a superbly located hotel with lots of olde world charm and atmosphere. The rooms are big but foisty and would benefit from some upgrade and air conditioning. The staff were helpful and welcoming, the food very acceptable and the location great. Overall though, overdue some refurbishment hence... More

We stayed at the hotel on 18th July and the only really nice thing was the breakfast. The room was just a standard room and the hotel is in need of modernisation. We paid extra for an upgraded room and it was no better than you'd get at a budget hotel. Next time we stay in harrogate we will stay... More

We stayed here on Friday whilst at a wedding at rudding park. As we couldn't stay there, we chose this hotel from late rooms. On arrival there were no car parking spaces at the front of the hotel. The receptionist gave us a parking disc and we had to park a couple of streets away, not in the hotel. The... More

Hotel very central. Has olde world charm, but some areas rather dated .My single room was quite spacious, but faced onto inner courtyard and was rather dark. None of the windows would open. Weather hot and humid. Very limited parking. Had to drop off my luggage, then search for suitable, long term street parking. Found a precious space 600 metres... More

Dear Winston C Thank you for taking time to write a review and I am sorry that there were no spaces available in our car park when you arrived, although you did find some on-street parking. The hotel has limited parking, about 40 spaces, which is on a first come first served basis. The Crown was built over 400 years... More

Visited Harrogate for the TDF and after the finish was wandering around the area when I was drawn by music to The Crown Hotel. They had put on an outside music feature supplied by DJ's and coupled it with an outdoor BBQ supplying burgers, pulled Pork and a vegetarian option. The car park was closed to,vehicles but was full of... More
