I had stayed here a couple of years ago and was happy to be coming back as it has always been a welcoming hotel with pleasant staff and immaculately clean rooms. This was no different, we arrived early and rather than the usual having to wait we were booked in straight away which was great after such a long journey....

We were just looking for a hotel last minute, and decided to stay at the Crown. The location was amazing! Right in the heart of the activities on the bay. We had a nice walk, had three great meals. We arrived about 1 in the afternoon and they let just check in early. This was great as we had made...

I have stayed here for business before and absolutely loved it, so when I came back on holiday I had to stay here again. This Crowne Plaza is one of my favorites because of the rooms, the staff and the location; you really can't ask for too much more regarding moderately priced hotel accommodations.

A late checkin was completed quickly and with no fuss, so I could head straight to my room while the valet garaged my vehicle. The room is well-configured, with ample space for the bathroom, kitchenette, sleeping and living spaces. Must mention the block out curtains, completely darkened the room until my alarm woke me. The room was well equipped for...
