The Crown Hotel is a "regal" (The Daily Telegraph) property in the spa town of Harrogate that boasts "traditional old-world charm" and an "excellent location".

It's less than 10 minutes' walk from the fashionable shops, bars and restaurants in the town centre, where you'll also find the renowned Bettys tea room, "famed for its elegant afternoon teas, delectable cakes and biscuits, tasty lunches and excellent service" (The Yorkshire Post).

The Grade II-listed Valley Gardens -- a 17-acre park with seasonal flower displays, a café, a children's playground, a small boating lake, tennis courts and a crazy golf course -- is a 5-minute stroll from the hotel. Opposite the main entrance you'll also find the impressive Victorian Royal Pump Room, now a museum where you can learn about the history of Harrogate water.

York and Leeds are both around 45 minutes' drive from the hotel, while the historic market towns of Wetherby and Knaresborough are less than 25 minutes' drive away. Harrogate is also a gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with popular sites such as Bolton Abbey, Swinsty Reservoir and Skipton Castle all around 30 minutes' drive away. The National Trust site of Brimham Rocks -- a large collection of natural rock formations in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty -- is also around 30 minutes' drive from the hotel.

Breakfast is served in the grand ballroom -- the oldest in Harrogate – where you can admire the original stained-glass windows and oak-panelled walls. There is also a bar for snacks and drinks throughout the day, and a restaurant that serves "hearty, well-presented European food" (The Daily Telegraph) and afternoon tea.

The advertised free parking turned out to be £12 a night! We wanted to take advantage of not having our room cleaned as we were staying 2 nights but were told we had to stay 3 nights. Room comfortable except for chairs and pillows. Could have done with another bedside table.

Food standard and reasonable prices in the restaurant.
Other Comments
Only negative is lack of on-site parking and although this is mentioned on a 'first come first served' basis in practice most of the spaces had 'reserved' notices in place.

My only complaint is Parking. It would have helped if we had been told there is very limited parking and this must be reserved as soon as possible at booking. We finally had to park on a road side but had to move the car before 9 o clock The following morning. Not ideal as I have a hip complaint and my partner doesn't drive. Please make sure you mention this information to your clients.
