This is a perfectly acceptable hotel - but beware the extras. Immediately next door to the hotel is a car park which charges £2 for overnight parking - pre-payable. Not having any change I approached reception to get some coins. They told me not to park there but to go to their own car park farther down the street. I did as I was told and found £7.50 added to my bill the following morning. Only after a lengthy exchange with the receptionist was the charge reduced to £2. And since when was £5 per hour an acceptable charge for wi-fi in the bedroom? I stayed in 3 separate hotels on this trip and this was the only one to attempt to charge me anything for wi-fi. Surely if you have wi-fi access in the hotel rooms, the norm is to provide it free of charge. Well, Crowne Plaza, if this is company policy, I certainly shall not be staying with you again.
