I stayed at the Crown as part of a hen weekend. On arrival the outside of the building is beautifull. The reception staff were very friendly and professional. The hotel is very clean although room furniture looked a wee bit tired. The breakfast was magnificent (as much as you can eat). I and the party i was with were due... More

Creaking floor boards, stained glass windows, magnificent high ceilings, detailed architrave, what a wonderful work of art The Crown is! An impromptu night in Harrogate before moving on had us choose from a list of hotels. We are very pleased that we chose this one! Location is perfect! Betty's tea rooms are just around the corner, marvellous! The staff at... More

We were en-route to Lincoln and decided to stop off in Harrogate. We did a quick search on the GPS and found the Crown hotel. It is a stunning example of Victorian architecture - wonderful in its excess. The staff were very friendly, the room was warm and inviting. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was good, honest...

Stayed at this hotel one night on Friday the 8th June 2012 attending a reunion event. The check in was friendly and informative. The room of an excellent standard. The breakfast was also excellent. The hotel location was also excellent right in the centre of Harrogate. The only gripe was the limited parking at the front of the hotel. I... More

We attended a wedding held at the Crown Hotel. Staying on site for us, was the ideal solution. The welcome we received from the reception (especially Emily - always smiling) was very good. As there was no parking available on the first night we were told where we could park in a street a few minutes walk away. We were... More

This hotel with its magnificent frontage should be given a try by anyone staying at Harrogate. The staff were helpful and obliging, without being intrusive, not always the case in some 'ultra' modern establishments who want everything from your e-mail to occupation! There are some hidden corners of this building that would benefit from some more TLC. But this is... More

At checkout they tried to make us pay again for our room even though we had fully payed in advance and had confirmation email to prove it. Receptionist's insistence that we were wrong despite evidence was particularly stressful. A shame as it left bitter taste after a very pleasant break.

If you like big old historic hotels, with well preserved original features, then this hotel fits the bill. But. You need to compromise a little. Everything would be perfect, from check in with friendly and helpful staff, to excellent food, including fantastic breakfast. Except a recent upgrade seems to have missed an essential point: hotels are ultimately a place of... More
