Myself wife and granddaughter travelled to Leeds from N Ireland to watch football do a bit off shopping and relax we choose the crown plazza for the pool and gym facilities as my wife and granddaughter love to swim and I could do a bit in the gym,we arrived a bit early 1pm and after a nice lunch we were allocated our room around 2pm by two very helpful girls on the reception went to the game and got the result,Sunday morning down for breakfast but we had to wait around 10 min as a table was not available,I noticed that workmen who are working on the refurbishment off hotel were also eating I wearing their working gear ! A better idea may have been the lads eating in their own room thus freeing up tables for guests ,breakfast was very good with a great selection but all the hot food was in fact cold and not very appetising indeed my wife and l did not eat it but had cereal and fruit,2nd morning breakfast was actually a lot worse in every way ,cold food and a room full off workmen once again we ate very little I know we were advised off the refurb a week before we went and were told work was being done on the 5th floor our room was on the 4th floor and evidence off being carried out and noise was quite evident spoiled it for us , I never expected to be eating with the workmen or meeting them around the hotel we actually had to move when in the pool area as the guys were working there ,pool and leasure facilities were excellent but I was really not impressed with other aspects off our stay I have mentioned.
"Good but will be better when refurbishment is completed"
The hotel is under refurbishment, so this has influenced the overall rating. When the refurbishment is finished the hotel will easily attract a higher rating. Work noise started earlier than advised. Temporary dining room for breakfast with 'background music' too loud for easy conversation. Bathroom gowns provided but no disposable slippers, which could be expected for hygiene purposes - even B & B's provide these. Pool facility excellent but access through reception area - many hotels provide private access for guests. Great staff in all areas. Polite, cheerful and helpful.
"Undergoing major construction/refurb"
Stayed for a night and used meeting rooms for two days for a business event. Major re-furb underway which is causing some disruption (Pool shut, breakfast served in a side room). Was on the 5th floor in an exec room. Standard set up and whilst functional/comfortable it is ready for the update currently underway. Staff friendly and going the extra mile because of all the work going on. Coupleofnice extras in the room like a bottle of wine. Meeting rooms spacious and comfortable, but with very noisy air con. Plus drilling/sawing very audible - fire alarm went off too! Breakfast was made up of high quality ingredients but lukewarm - likely because it isnt currently served in the restaurant. I imagine this hotel will be grand when the construction is finished and because of the friendly staff I'd give it another go.
"Check what's open!"
As the hotel is still being refurbished you are greeted by the (admittedly helpful) front desk staff with a list of what is not currently open. This seems to be mainly the leisure facilities. The work also involves quite a lot of noise and a smell of paint. The room was comfortable and the breakfast buffet was fine but I'd check the state of the refurbished before booking.
Hotel, facilities and especially the staff could not be faulted.From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff, from the front desk, to the concierge, to the bar and restaurant staff, always made you feel as though they couldn't do enough for you. A great location which is quiet, but close enough to the city centre to get around on foot. Could not recommend The Crowne Plaza highly enough
