When you book a Crowne Plaza hotel for a leisure break you can't expect an authentic hotel full of charm. Yes, the hotel did seem to be full of British businessmen in the oil and/or gas industry holding their meetings, so pretty corporate in style and also in décor. OK it's not the Muscat Chedi, but in my view it is a much better location and certainly one of the better located hotels with a great view across the bay. Rooms are the standard you would expect but it had a great pool area and much better than average gym for a hotel of this type, housed in a separate building. It's clearly one of the more established Muscat hotels so the décor also looks tired in parts. We didn't spend time in the bar which seemed to be full of British but ate in the Persian restaurant which was good..didn't try the Italian which they seemed to be promoting a lot so maybe less popular? Staff were courteous and polite. If you get a good deal (we did) then it's a good value for money equation so I've given it a good rating on that basis.
