“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

We stayed here after going to a gig at the MEN Arena. As it was a birthday present for my boyfriend I decided to spend a little extra on the hotel room. The hotel is situated perfectly for the arena as well as the shops - 10min walk away. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite and we were very happy with the accomodation. The price for a standarad room was quite expensive however with our free upgrade we definately got a bargain. The whole hotel was spotless and our room was no exception. The lounge area was quite large and the bathroom had seperate shower and bath along with 2 sinks and complimentry robes and slippers. The bed was the most comfy bed I have EVER slept in. Breakfast was standard hotel buffet style, nothing fancy but good choice and cooked well. We were EXTREMLY happy with the Crowne Plaza and would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Hope for a free upgrade to get a bargain ;-)

This has the feel of a place which could do with a makeover and some investment. A hotel without wifi cannot expect to get business travellers and with the twitter generation addicted to communication, there will not be many happy teenagers either.

The rooms and service are fine, not out of the ordinary, but adequate for general needs. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Everything seemed slightly worn, whether it was the remote control with the loose battery lid or the slightly cramped wardrobe (and there was only one of me!).

There is a car park and building site across the road - when it is finished the location will improve. By then the owners might have put a bit of money in so that the hotel maximises it's potential.

Really easy, friendly check in. very classy looking decor in the entrance. We were staying there as we were seeing a concert in the MEN and it was very helpful as they had start times etc on the front desk.
The room was superbly appointed with a really luxurious feel. Lovely soft bed linen and mood lighting. Lots of mirror space.
Bathroom was gorgeous with lovely toiletries and plenty of towels.
Breakfast was lovely, good selection of cereals, fruits and cooked breakfasts with polite attentive staff.
Brilliant stay all in all, will definitely be back!

Arrived on a busy Friday afternoon and the valet parking worked. Car taken straight away. 2 double bed club room was fantastic. Complimentary drinks were a bonus before the concert. 24 hr Pizza service wasnt available (broken oven) so reception helped us order Dominoes pizzas all round and they were delivered to the hotel, no problem, within 25 minutes.
