Such a warm and efficient welcome from the staff, really well appointed rooms and a great range of options for dinner. So good in fact I used the restaurant rather than the gym.....but don't tell my wife.

This hotel was built in anticipation of a new international airport. The airport didn't happen . . . So, there is a giant beautiful hotel on a hill in the middle of nowhere. That said; the staff is very friendly and helpful, there are several restaurants with above average food and good service. The facilities include a bowling alley, 2... More

Overall we were happy with our stay in the hotel which was for one night only. Rooms are large and comfortable and the breakfast was reasonable but the food could have been served hotter. Not sure if our order for 5 different cooked breakfasts caused the trouble. Hotel is there to suit clients for the business week and was quiet... More

After reading only positive reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to book this hotel for 2 nights as a long weekend getaway from Dubai. Positives - clean Negatives - Hotel is in the middle of nowhere and poor views, if you're looking for a tranquil escape, keep driving further into Oman as Sohar was not a holiday destination.

Set on highway 7 heading towards the Sohar Airport, the Crowne Plaza is a little gem in an otherwise somewhat barren landscape. The staff is really friendly and the rooms very spacious. The mattresses feel like springs with cardboard over it and there are no patio furniture for a relaxing outdoor experience. Overall, the hotel is well organised, food is... More

I booked this Hotel for my 25th anniversary thinking this was a beach resort ( my mistake) as it turns out, this is a business hotel. In any case for its small size with 126 rooms, it is fairly spread out and offers restaurants, function rooms, large swimming pool, good fitness center and spa. There is also a bowling alley,...

Nice clean hotel. Poor breakfast compared to other nice hotels in the gulf. Very nice staff. We had a nice, clean room. It was a lot of fun to hang out in the bar with live music.
