The Crown is a "grand dame" of a hotel full of character and charm.
We visited as a last minute valentines break and on an offer from a last minute bookings company. It was not cheap - but for a special occasion it was a perfect setting.
We had an executive suite which was large and comfortable; a seperate lounge, bedroom with four poster bed, large bathroom and entrance lobby. One quibble here - as with another review - there was no heating in the bathroom; strange. However all fittings and fixtures were modern and the feel of the suite was that of good quality. The bed was extremely comfortable.
We had booked a valentines dinner and were lucky to get a table (albeit early). Again - not a low cost option but one has to remember this is Harrogate. The food was excellent and the service likewise.
Being centrally located we then left the hotel and had a wander around this very pleasant and genteel (well heeled) town packed full of interesting bars and restaurants.
We took breakfast the following morning. It is a buffet offering and the staff were a little slow in clearing tables and bringing coffee/tea and toast but the place was full and they were doing their best to provide a good service.
So - all in all - a very memorable stay and for the right reasons. Let me stress it was not a "bargain" break and on the pricey side but for great atmosphere and a genuine offering of historic surroundings this hotel is excellent. We loved it.
