The hotel has a prominent location in the heart of the town and must have been ‘back in the day’ a wonderful place to stay unfortunately today this is not the case and I would suggest that you avoid staying here. The reason for this is threefold; first the ‘hotel’ is need of some updating however simple changes would make...

I booked a while ago for our anniversary and asked for a nice room. It was freezing cold, cramped and dirty overlooking back yard and rubbish and bottle bank. Basic horrid smelly bathroom with no bath. Last breakfast served is 9am which is too early and bar staff couldn't speak English well and gave short measures. Complained about the freezing...

We decided to visit Birmingham in November of 2016 and on the way we stopped in The Crown Hotel just for recharging energies to continue the trip during UK. Our stay in the hotel was fine, nice and in a quiet room. Very nice breakfast with hot and cold buffet. After a quiet and relaxing night we decided to stay...

I was rudely accused of smoking in my room by the manager when I don't even smoke. The rooms are cold and dirty, the food barely palatable. I shall be instructing my company not to use this hotel again.

The value for money was exceptional, the staff were very efficient and nothing was too much trouble.It is a very old coaching inn so you have to expect low beams and sloping floors in some bedrooms.. This all adds to its character of the place. The only slight criticism is the lack of a mirror by a plug in the...

Hotel is old and a bit tired but this was more than made up for by the friendliness of the staff and the cost for the 3 night - 4 day Christmas break. We had 2 rooms, one for myself, my wife and our adult disabled son and one for my elderly mother. if you want a modern luxurious hotel...

We looked for a venue for my fathers 87th birthday celebration and decide on the crown. Whilst it was more about the occasion than the food etc the meal we had was to a reasonable standard and enjoyed by all. The location was good and staff set tables for our group of 18 in the main restaurant overlooking the High...

ManagementTCI, Guest Relations Manager at The Crown Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review we are glad you enjoyed the new years party. The heating goes on as soon as you check in to the room so it might take half an hour or so to heat up and the temperature can be altered by the guests in the room, every room also has an electric heater if needed....
