Stayed for three nights with three other friends, the hotel is gorgeous, room was big and comfy with everything you need in it. Lovely hot showers and big fluffy towels.
We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the food was delicious and there was a huge variety catering for every one. The rates were great :-) and the meals very reasonable, some good deals on drinks too:-)
We went to a local nightclub which was very busy but a great night out, there are lots of pubs and bars too... and during the day we shopped and shopped... All in all a fantastic place and an brilliant hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

We had an overnight stay at the crown, on a B&B basis.
The hotel is centrally located for the best of harrogate, including, betty's cafe, turkish baths, pump room etc...
We stayed in a standard double room, which was clean and a good size.
The staff were efficient and friendly.
The meals in the hotels brasserie were varied and good value.
Overall I would be happy to return and would recommend this hotel.

Very well styled hotel, sympathetically restored with many classic and modern touches, excellent food, very efficient service and perfect location. Stayed on business, but have been secretly eyeing various mini-break packages ever since. And Harrogate? Well, it is simply stunning!

The Crown looks imposing from a distance. You may be lucky to get a parking space in the hotels carpark, if not the its on the road or in the NCP car park just over the road. The checking in process was fine, the decor in the main part of the hotel was fine but the rooms............ The rooms are nothing special for the money (the first night I stayed, I had to jam the window to stop it rattling in the wind). The hotel bar stocks a very poor selection of beers - better off heading to the pub over the road. The self service breakfast was nothing special, infact the Churchill Suite is like a set from Brideshead Revisited! So is this hotel worth the money ..................................... no way, its nothing special.

Stayed here for 9 nights, with no major problems. It's a great old hotel with a lot of character, and the location is perfect for exploring Harrogate. As other reviewers have mentioned parking is scarce (at least from Thurs through Sunday morning), but you can park for free on Cornwall Rd., next to Valley Gardens, which is only a five minute walk away.

I booked a single room, but they gave me a double when I checked in. This room had a great view of the pump house museum and Valley gardens. It was a bit of a hike from the elevators/stairs, but this also meant that it was quiet. The room was very clean and obviously renovated recently, with a comfy bed. All the fixtures in the bathroom were new. Water pressure was a bit low, but plenty of hot water. The room had a small LCD TV with decent selection of movies.

The breakfast buffet had a great selection, and was served in a large ballroom. Staff was friendly. I didn't eat at the restaurant or bar, since there were so many other places close to the hotel.

My only real complaint is with the internet service. In my opinion, internet is a utility, and on the same level as water and electricity. Every hotel should provide free internet in your room, but this has not caught on in the majority of UK hotels that I've stayed in. The Crown has free wifi in the lobby, but to use the in-room access cost an astounding £12 for 24 hours. And after paying this much, it was very slow (felt like about 256kb connection).

Overall all, though, I would highly recommend the hotel.
