Lovely venue for a spa weekend. The spa was good as was the hotel and dining facilities. My inclusive "30" minute back, neck and shoulder massage actually lasted 15 minutes. It felt a bit cheap skate, and spoiled what was otherwise a nice weekend.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Front desk was attentive and pleasant. The food in the restaurant was excellent, though service was bit on the slow side. (10 min for a bottle of wine??). Food and service at the bar was lovely, and they do make a fantastic Pimm's there! ;)

Me and my partner were really looking forward to spending our weekend at Crowne Plaza Marlow. When booking the treatment times we were given times before we could get into the room, which was fine because they have changing facilities for you to use. However when leaving your stu

Came here for a relaxing spa weekend and this hotel was great. The staff were fantastic and allowed us to check in early. Room was huge and super-clean with plenty of wardrobe space as well as a nice bathroom. Free / secure parking was a bonus. The spa was exactly what I expected

I stayed at the Plaza this year for 2 months with work and I got to know all the staff really well and the running of the hotel as you can imagine.
Karim/ Sammy on Reception are AWESOME so helpful & work so hard even though they get shouted at so much. It must come down to Hotel

Response from IHGService, Guest Relations Manager at Crowne Plaza Marlow
Responded 2 days ago
Hi MermaidMoore, Thank you for leaving us your review and for visiting us again here in Marlowe. We are grateful that you've chosen the Crowne Plaza to host you. As our returning guest, we wanted nothing more but to make your experience than the last. Though I'm truly happy that the members of our staff have made you feel our warm hospitality, I regard your thoughts about the things that needed to be improved. I'm sorry that you have to witness our staff being yelled at, staffing shortage, and the lapses with the hotel system. Customers to us always come first. We try to take care of each and every guest in an absolute best way we can. I'm sorry that this stay didn't go as perfectly as planned, MermaidMoore. Don't worry, I took the necessary steps to ensure our management gets to read your post and be discussed amongst all concerned staff. We are always on the lookout for ways to make your experience memorable. Reviews such as this goes a long way in identifying areas where we can improve. Your stay may not have been the best picture to remember of us but I am positive to capture a better one as soon as you get back. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. Best regards, Frank A. Case Manager IHGService

Does the gym have a Concept2 rowing machine/erg?
Please note Property Representative that I have one of these machines at home and have been using it for more than 15 years, and I can assure you that you are lying to me. The chains on yours are rusty, which takes years of non maintenance to build up. One of the monitors has a broken battery compartment that has been patched with duct tape, and from the looks of it it has been in this state for months. Both the monitors have buttons which do not register; not a software fault, again poor maintenance (lack of cleaning). There were other sets of equipment which were not working and had notes to the effect that they had notified Life Fitness, but after a week or so they were still in the same condition. By denying your faults you will never improve. By jumping on any negative feedback you will only stop people from sharing their ideas, suggestions, comments, experiences and reflections with you, which will only help lead to an even earlier downfall of your hotel. Really, pathetic of you, and I shall be sharing my comments with your senior Corporate management.

Not a question but needs to be said somewhere! Management attack genuine yet negative reviews with defamatory statements such as accusing people of trying to not pay bills amongst other widely untrue remarks. We have had an unbelievable and shocking response. GO ELSEWHERE!
This was my first time at this hotel, I was there for a work event and we stayed there for two nights, some of the staff were really nice but there were a couple whose attitude was not helpful, other than I enjoyed my stay
