    The staff were friendly, the facilities were good, location good,

    Hotel car park a bit small, but you could use the multi story next door

    The food and service in the bar/grill were poor. I was overcharged for breakfasts, we had 2 for 1 breakfast on one morning of our stay and I realise now I have been charged for 3! We were in a room kitted out for a wheelchair, which was fine, but I think we should have been informed at time of booking, we weren't told this and the layout in the bathroom was very low level for someone not in a wheelchair. During cleaning after the first night of our stay the towels were removed, but not replaced so we had to ask for replacements.

    They woke me up at 6 am for a taxi I had ordered at 7 am. That deprived me of 40 minutes of badly needed sleep. Clumsy. Otherwise a nice hotel and nice people.

    The pool was nice

    I will never return to this hotel. This Crowne Plaza lowered my overall impression of the Crowne Plaza hotels in general. Prior to this trip I picked on the basis of the name, thinking the name was associated with quality. However, this hotel had no internet of any kind, so my iPhone charges were through the roof; they charged me more than $400 a night, which did not include breakfast (they charged an additional $25 for what was standard fare and would be included in any medium class hotel throughout Europe or even the rest of the UK). Really an abysmal experience and makes me really question this hotel as being capable of handling the Olympics a few years hence.

    A very pleasant hotel next to ExCel centre. The girl who checked me in enquired if like most people in the hotel that night I was taking an exam the next day. She wished good luck and put me up in a quiet room away from lifts and families. The room was clean, had a desk for some last minute revision and a very comfortable bed to feel fresh and ready to go in the morning. Breakfast was everything one could wish for and a pleasant experience overall.

    When I was checking out in the morning electricity went down in the hotel. As I was running late for my exam I suggested I would pay when I collect my car later in the day. The guy at the desk kept ignoring me and would wonder off from time to time to chat to his colleagues about the power cut. I then suggested that they charge the card they had preauthorised the night before and I would either collect the receipt after my exam or they would e-mail it to me (I left my e-mail address). When after my exam I came back to collect my car, I was told that everything had been paid for. I was not given any receipt and nothing came in the e-mail since. I am not sure how much I was charged, what was included in my final bill and I have no proof of that payment. I do understand that a power cut is quite out of ordinary, but hotel staff needs to be able to deal with situations like this.

    Room servcie is a bit hit and miss with what they can actually provide.

    The quietness of the area.

    The fact that they wanted to charge a 'tray charge' (whatever that means) of £5 on room service.

  • Group of friends

    Room was very comfortable and modern.The food in the grill/restaurant was particularly good, a little expensive but worth the money.

    The swimmingpool was excellent! My Children loved it!

    The staff could have been more friendly during our stay, not only when we were checking in and out!

    Nice, new hotel. Convenient, if expensive, parking. Large rooms, good bar, reasonable breakfast. Decent value if you can get a weekend rate.

    Bed too soft and pillows too hard. Can be a bit time-consuming and tiring travelling across London by public transport from the hotel, but that's the flip side of a decent weekend rate.
