TWO UPGRADES

Arriving at the airport in HCMC we are amazed to find ourselves being checked in by one of the girls we met on our snorkelling tour on Phu Quoc island. She gives us a huge smile when she sees us and gestures to her colleague who was also on the tour who gives us a big smile and wave.

David and I cheekily ask her for the upgrade we had ...

Landing in good old blighty

... almost 15 hours and it felt like 24 hours. Neither of us was able to sleep on the plane and there is only so many films that a person can watch without getting bored of it all. Although we had good leg space and comfortable seats after a while the body tends to seize up. You do get looked after on Singapore Airlines, plenty of food and drink but at least you can go walk about , sorry about the Aussie pun there.....Heath was waiting for us at Manchester Airport once we ...

Another Thursday arrived and we realized it was time to get back to our walks. It was Peter's turn to plan where we would go. After about a 45 minute drive towards Helmsley, we arrived at our destination - a walk on the moorland at ArdenHawnby Estate.

Weatherwise, the day looked promising. Temperatures were moderate and the skies were blue. England has had a very rainy winter and we were prepared ...

The final day.

... branch to another. We drove back to the airport via a winding mountain road that took us up through majestic pine forests right over a saddle of Table Mountain, and led down to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The rest was pure horror - motorways, wrong turnings, car drop-off, endless sitting around in the departures terminal...but now we're jetting towards Paris, be home in about 12 ...

I was happy for him and she seemed a nice girl but I kept telling myself that
nobody would put so much effort and money into a trip for them to back out as

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Crown Hotel Harrogate

    Desperately in need of a face lift

    from

    This hotel looks quite decent on the web and I was quite impressed at the price - just £45 GBP for a twin room. I should have known there would be a catch!

    I won't be back.....

    from

    the crown ... it looked very impressive when we got out of our taxi to stay there this week (business trip). The location was great.. pity about the hotel. Run down - to put it simply. As soon as I checked in, I had to use the toilet. To say they were disgusting was an understatement! I was dreading seeing the rooms after my experience there! To be fair, the room itself was large, yet cosy. The furniture and beds were in good order, and the bed linen was clean and fresh. However, the carpet was old and dirty, and the wallpaper was peeling from the walls. It had a damp, mouldy smell and it was so sad! Such a beautiful building - but it would need a fortune spent on it to renovate it. I found the staff very welcoming, but I'm afraid, I won't be back on any of my future visits.

    Beware unless you like mold and gloom (Insight Tour)

    from

    Our Insight Tour included this hotel for two nights. We were told that it was a first class hotel with NO other people complaining about the facilities. Both Insight Tours and Crown Hotel pulled a fast one on our group. Our first room had moldy bathroom, torn curtains, horrible beds, dirty floors, garbage smell in hallway and noise from pubs; second room on second night faced front of hotel with bright lights shining in room all night (drapes didn't close), heat that couldn't be turned off and again moldy bathroom. Insight tours, which we thought was a decent tour company, claims there was no problem or previous complaints about this hotel. Most other travelers in our group had similar experiences and horrible rooms. The Crown Hotel is located in a lovely setting and very close to downtown, but that doesn't change the fact that it is run down and sadly in need of major renovations.

    Please Stay Somewhere Else.

    from

    A business associate and I had the unfortunacy of staying here over night on a trip to Harrogate. The hotel was booked for us and we had no real idea of what lay in store for us.

    It's not the Hilton, but.......

    from

    I took a party of eighty people to this hotel and found the staff outstanding and the food superb. It may be a bit run down, don't expect Hilton standards, but it expresses the Victorian splendour of Harrogate very well. Rooms are spacious and have all the usual amenities, including clean linen!

    I agree that the car parking is limited but our group managed alright and we had about twenty-five vechicles. We had absolutely no complaints and would use the hotel again. Overall it lives up to it's three star rating.

    Good atmosphere and standards

    from

    I stayed at this hotel twice during the summer and simply don't recognise it from the other reviews.

    Much of the same.

    from

    Well unfortunatley we did not check the Tripadvisor websight before we stayed at this auful hotel. All that has been said before is true. This hotel looks very impressive from the outside, but as soon as you enter the lift the eyebrows start to raise.

    What you've already read is only too true

    from

    We took an Insight Tour (country roads), which spent two nights in Harrogate. Before leaving for the UK, I read the two previous reviews for this hotel. Although we were given a decent room (#245), horror stories from other tour members confirmed what had already been said. One couple had a room overlooking the entrance and had a balcony, on which rested the remains of a pigeon, fed upon by various insects. Another member's room had not been cleaned. Fortunately the desk granted a room change. Still another had a room which not only reeked of smoke but shook from a noisy band down below. To be fair, the grounds look ok and we really had a decent room, although new carpeting and wallpaper should be high on their priority. And the breakfast/dining staff tried very hard (good food). But the management (if there is any management) doesn't seem to care. I've already written the management directly, hoping that some changes might be made. The location of the hotel is very good and should be a major draw. Instead, I must sadly recommend that potential guests reconsider.

    Never Again!

    from

    A party of myself, my husband and six friends stayed here for the weekend, Friday to Sunday. It is a shabby hotel, with lacklustre staff attitudes, poor room security, serious staff shortages, low hygiene standards. although the bedrooms were large the wall paper was peeling , the telephone and radio didnt work, hardly any of the lights in the room worked and to cap it all our room was robbed! The carpet, curtains and bedding were worn and mismatched and i dont think the bed linen had been changed from the previous occupants. The bathroom fittings were old and tatty and the rubber showermat was filthy. The parking consists of a few spaces at the front and rear of the hotel, nowhere near enough for the size of the hotel, so guests not there at dawn on the day of arrival have to park on the streets at in excess of £7 per day. The bar in the front lobby had one member of staff serving and ran out of baileys and bacardi, the barman was also acting as the receptionist! To be fair the food in the restaurant was adequate for the price paid, but we did ask for fresh bread as it was rock hard. The service in the restaurant was slow and i sensed resentful. We would never use this hotel again and have written to the management.

    One of the worst, if not the worst, UK hotels I have ever stayed in

    from

    This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in in the UK. It is a 3* and looks really nice from the pictures and description on the Corus website. So swayed by the historical aspect and 18th century splendour, and thinking it would be a lovely, well kept and decorated hotel, expecially as it is in the heart of Harrogate, how disappointed were we when we arrived. They say first impressions count, and they sure do in this place. Upon entering the lift you get a sense that this place really isn't looked after well; it was a battered unkempt 70's throwback lift.
