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.

Beware of the £25pp dining offer. This only covers food. Despite checking with the restaurant before leaving that night, we were told that as the total cost was under £50 including drinks there was nothing pay. Upon check out, we were then faced with a bill and rude receptionist. Food was okay. Don't bother with the executive room, its just a larger room, with small bed and exactly the same amenities. Hotel is very dark and musty. Would have been better to book the Travelodge next door for less than half the price.

Enjoyed the location and the way staff sorted out problems . we were locked out of our room the first night and had a disturbed nights sleep due to traffic and noisy neighbour This was resolved next morning by the excellent receptionist Courtney , She moved us to an executive room away from the traffic and it was superb.
