    We've stayed at the Crowne Plaza many times because we have always enjoyed the facilities at the hotel. If we don't get the executive room, we usually pay the supplement to use the executive lounge and get a few drinks in there plus some hot snacks which we've enjoyed in the past.

    When we got to our room, I found that I couldn't close the bathroom door, it just kept getting stuck. Not ideal as the toilet is right by the door. (Also the toilet had been used and not flushed by whoever was in the room before us). I contacted reception and with some force the receptionist was able to close the door, but not without using force and causing it to slam - so not great for us nor for the rooms on either side of us. I asked if we could move but was told the hotel was full. The receptionist gave us a token for 2 free drinks as a gesture of good will. Breakfast at the hotel has been a bit disastrous the last 3 times now. Tables not cleared, missing cutlery, cups, and food at the buffet not very hot. It's a shame really as it used to be really spot on. If we return, we'll try the breakfast in the exec lounge, but the choice in there is more limited.

    Perfectly situated with free parking and comfortable beds

    The breakfast isn’t brilliant as it’s a bit cold and service slow for hot drinks but didn’t ruin my visit.

    Very good breakfast. Excellent location, by the river.

    Room was cold. The heating in the room could not be made to work, but was given a portable radiator.

    It was clean and the staff were friendly. Close to local amenities. Great atmosphere.

    Unfortunately the pool was closed during my visit and I was looking forward to using it.

    Free car park. If staying at any other time of year the patio by the thames

    White bedding had marks on sheet & pillow. Shower in bath with shower curtain (clean but very poor furnishing for hotel of what I thought of this standard). Restaurant said fine dining, was not, and very poor value (4 persons with 1 starter, 4 mains, 1 sweet, 3 glasses wine, 1 gin & lemonade, 1/2 pint Guinness was £150 - very poor value - Did complain) 2nd night went for late drink after long day out, very loud rowdy crowd in bar, kicking drinks over breaking glasses. Barman did not even notice. Would not choice to book a crowne plaza again after staying here
