Reception staff friendly. Our room was not clean. Carpet stained with food. Alcohol stains indoor and outdoor. Outdoors had not been cleaned at all. Tiles indoors sticky!

I specifically booked a spa room. However there was no plug for the spa rendering the spa unable to be used and the spa room now a standard room. Advised staff member the following morning, she was dismissive and disinterested. We weren't offered a refund for the difference in the money we paid for a spa room to a standard room. Location was good.

Thank you for taking the time to review Crown on Darby. We are glad you enjoyed our location. Sorry for any inconvenience with the plug missing, However, you were given a plug the next morning. If you would have called reception when you had seen it was missing we could have resolved this problem earlier. Kind Regards,
