AJ was absolutely amazing! So hospitable, so kind and helpful. Probably the best service and character you can have in a hotel restaurant - made our night! Thank you AJ!


The rooms, great size, very comfortable bed, excellent en-suite. Good choice in bar and restaurant menus. Great selection in the bar. Reception staff excellent. Bar and waiting staff well trained and knowledgeable.Colin and his team are excellent, attentive and welcoming. Breakfast is excellent and compliments to the Breakfast Chef for her excellent scrambled eggs. Keep it up.


We had a fabulous lunch here yesterday..Our family ranges from 12weeks to 91yrs old so I tried to find a suitable venue for everyone to meet..The atmostphere of this place was so warm and welcoming.All the staff who served us were amazing.. a special mention to Marco and Niketan who were very kind and made our meal really special with their attentive service. 'A' star to the kitchen too for producing very tasty food..excellent. We will definitely be back.

The food was absolutely incredible, the room was spacious, staff were friendly and I have never been served so quickly in my life. Absolutely wonderful. The treatments in the spa were absolutely amazing too! We loved everything. 


I hope you're well! It's been almost a month since we came so apologies for the late email. We just wanted to thank you for everything you did for us over our weekend at the Crowne Plaza. You and the team really made us feel so special which make the weekend unforgettable! From reserving our table for us in the dining area to looking after us at dinner with great cocktails and so much more! Thank you so much for looking after us! It was great to see you and catch up! We hope you have a great few months and look forward to seeing you soon! 


Great service and tasty food


Had a lovely afternoon tea, gulten free as well as a normal one, both were excellent, amazing staff especially Robert. Thank you for a fabulous afternoon.


Very luxurious, would definitely stay again. The food was particularly great!


You will not be disappointed! Highlight was the food. Dinner service was great, attentive staff, great selection at breakfast all cooked to perfection. Staff at Spa facilities were professional. Room was great and was clean.


We were given a gift for a spa weekend and were not disappointed. We had been considering going out for dinner but the restaurant staff were very courteous. I have a number of food intolerances and James (the only James working there) really showed understanding and ensured we both had an enjoyable meal. The chef was fantastic too and made me a delicious cream mustard sauce which I believe was not even on the menu.


Food was excellent, probably the best Indian food we have had outside of India itself. The service was well excellent too, well above average, especial thanks go to our waiter Bharat who went out of his way to make our dining experience as good as it possibly could be.


The hotel is so very convenient to the family and provides us with a very good base to bring them back to after a day sight seeing, for a first class meal and relaxing time to catch up over a welcome drink. The staff are always first class and cheerful, making us feel most welcome, look forward to stopping off again in the near future.


We had a 3 course meal as part of a Spa day package at the Crowne Plaza, & what a delightful meal it was! It was the best restaurant meal I've had in a long while. Delicious & perfectly presented, with an expert combination of flavours and ingredients. Quality over quantity, but still just the right amount for us to leave feeling fully satisfied.The staff (Natalia and Bharat) were extremely attentive & helpful, getting the balance in timing perfectly right between efficient service and a relaxed experience. Even if you are not local, it is definitely worth going out of your way to eat here!


We stopped by at the holiday inn Winnersh Triangle For a business lunch. The restaurant and lobby area was immaculately clean and spacious. The lunch menu covers British traditional and Indian cuisine. I choose the tandoori prawns (very fresh, juicy and cooked on their on site tandoor), followed by a lamb ghost (again, delicious and noticeably full of fresh spice so clearly made that day on site) and rounded off with a chocolate parfait (very well presented and light). Overall a very tasty experience!


This hotel is surprising stylish in comparison to many other holiday inns I’ve stayed at. We booked the overnight spa package with dinner and breakfast. The food was lovely and had the option of selection from two different menus as part of the set menu package. Great value for money and the staff were so welcoming. We would definitely return.


Enjoyed a very good four day stay over Christmas. Nice atmosphere and exceedingly helpful and pleasant staff excellent Christmas day lunch much better than we had hoped for.


Came down to stay before a meeting in one of the offices beside. Super friendly staff! They now know my name and breakfast preferences! Dinner was great-has the two course Indian meal with cobra. Both me and colleague thought the food was great. Room was lovely, clean and bed comfy!


Five star plus hotel and the staff where so helpful and made my stay even better, the food was also five star plus, breakfast, Lunch and Dinner were superb and again the staff made it the difference, the bar staff were also fantastic, this will be on my top list if I am in the area again to stay in.


Great food - great staff! Was here for my aunties 80th Birthday so there were 12 of us. Have to say the staff delivered the food in a timely and friendly manner. Food as excellent and enviroment was comfortable. Can recommend the Sea Bass.


Had the most relaxing stay at the Crowne Plaza. The room was so spacious and comfortable and no noise from outside. It really was quite luxurious! The bed has hard and soft pillows so you pick which one you like best! I ordered room service one night which arrived quickly and a very pleasant young man who brought it was very friendly. I really enjoyed the gammon, eggs and chips   the food presentation and was super and gammon cooked to perfection. Overall, I will look forward to staying again. There’s no comparison with the other nearby hotel   - this wins hands down.


Me and my friend enjoyed a a lovely 3 course meal served by Holly who was friendly and professional. We didn't have the usual long wait between the courses and the food was absolutely outstanding, all in all I would certainly recommend trying this place out. 


Great service form the staff and the food in the bar was exellent. Loved the Indian food

I’ve been meaning to follow up for a while today to say how excellent the food and service was on Mother’s Day this year - brilliant! You were also incredibly helpful what with the changes to my booking and discreet, as I shared with you some pregnancy news for the menu order which was managed in confidence on the day.
Do you have a manager I can share my feedback with? As I really feel it needs recognising what great customer service you offered and how well we were treated on the day, my mum thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks

Janice W.

Just to say a belated thank you to everyone at the hotel for such a wonderful afternoon to celebrate my mother’s birthday. It was ideal to be seated in the restaurant, all the staff were extremely helpful and the pianist even played Happy Birthday! A lovely afternoon tea was provided and enjoyed by all. My mother, her friends and family all had a lovely time and I was able to relax and let the Hotel staff do all the work. I know that December is always an extremely busy period and well done to everyone for still being so thoughtful and smiling even on the Friday after Christmas. It was much appreciated by all. I will definitely use the Crowne Plaza again to host a celebration.


Took my 2 goddaughters to the hotel and we dined in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Staff were fantastic, so attentive, pleasant and genuinely interested in their diners, with great smiles! We had the Indian dishes which were very well prepared and presented. The food was plentiful, the girls could just about squeeze in dessert! They serve breakfast at a decent time on a Sunday. Again, great choices to select from and once again all staff on duty were brilliant.


We had a splendid time on the occasion of my Mother`s 90th Birthday. Excellent organisation prior to the day itself with excellent food and service on the day, with very friendly, attentive staff. I would not hesitate to recommend for a large group "special" meal. Our thanks to all for making the day so memorable.


Took my 70 year old dad for an Afternoon Tea, which he loved. Stuff was excellent & attention to detail was perfect! Good selection of food & cakes. I would suggest eating here too. Look forward for a longer stay next time!

Katherine W:

Just wanted to pass on a great big thank you. The food was terrific and the service, as usual, was perfect!


The food in the restaurant was really outstanding! Because I had a superb dinner, the next day I brought my team there for lunch.


Just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for a very enjoyable evening last night. Service was great and food was very nice.

room 425:

Food was really good. My husband had the burger on our second night & he always asks for his burgers very well done where ever we go. On most occasions we have had to send this back as it always comes out red/pink, however, your chef cooked it to perfection I had a massage and foot treatment that was very relaxing. The pool was a good size so you could actually swim which was fantastic. The cocktails were good, especially the apple margarita which was superb. The bar staff were friendly and always on hand to serve apologising if you had to wait.

Paul C:

Food was well presented and very well prepared. Service was impeccable with a professional air but friendly tone Highly recommended.

Francois G:

Fine dining, just what is needed to top off a relaxing day after using the spa facilities and treatment. Great selection of meals and well presented. Friendly and professional staff

Kelly F:

I wanted to let you know that everything went very smoothly with the dinner on 5 Oct. The set menus were really good and gave us so much to chose from which was excellent. Our waitress was very polite and professional. 


Please thank the waitress, restaurant manager and chef for a good evening. Also, thanks to you for your time & patience assisting with our reservation.

We had an evening meal which was first class cuisine. We had one of the best breakfasts of any hotel we've stayed in.


The staff were amazingly friendly. The food I had was soo tasty. I had a salmon with mashed potatoes plus a a drink and a dessert for around 20£. I would recommend this place.

Martin B:

The food at the restaurant was amazing- still dreaming of the gorgeous artisan cheeses!  The rooms were a generous size and very clean, the staff were helpful and overall our stay was excellent.

William M:

We stopped to have a meal after a journey. Not staying there but the restaurant manager was very helpful and we had a marvellous Indian meal from the Bar menu despite being seated in the restaurant. Service was Excellent despite the Saturday night crowds. We will be going again and can only praise the delightful place and marvellous staff.

Sarah B:

We would like to thank you and the rest of the staff at the Crowne Plaza, Winnersh for all of your efforts in making our Christmas party an enjoyable evening. I have received numerous compliments regarding the venue, the rooms and the care and attention we were given. Our experience with yourselves is the best ever received from a Crowne Plaza and your consideration to detail was noted. We would particularly like you to thank the chef for the quality and standard of the food provided. It is very easy to become just part of a' conveyor-belt ' Christmas dinner/on mass catering, but this was not the service we received, the food we exceptional. I would also like to thank the staff that helped the band and the photo booth entertainment with their equipment and not forgetting the special arrangement for the Christmas tree to be up in time. Wishing you a successful December and many more party nights to follow.


Spent a couple of nights at the hotel and had a great stay - pool is great! Staff friendly at reception and also in the bar/restaurant. Rooms are of good size, clean - and beds are comfortable. The breakfast selection is great, and the hotel does great Indian food for dinner - so its not just your usual hotel food. Great Indian food in the restaurant.

Denise & John R:

We would just like to thank you so much for organising our Indulgent Afternoon Tea on Sunday 14th June 2015 to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary. Everything was beautifully done and nothing was to much trouble and the staff on the day were wonderful. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious. Please pass our thanks on to everyone.

Just a quick note to say "THANK YOU" to all the team who made our event yesterday so successful. Please pass my thanks on to them and copy my sentiments to the Hotel Manager who I met prior to the meeting. Arrangements were fine and the food was truly splendid! Also special thanks to the kitchen staff who even agreed to me increasing the numbers at 18:05 (when someone who thought they were playing golf all day arrived for the meeting!)

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for making my father in laws 80th birthday celebration a great success. From the the start of booking organisation and the evening event was a success because of all of your staff serving the meal/drinks everything was spot on nothing was to much trouble. He loved the pianist who played happy birthday and every one in the lounge area sang along too. I know it was very busy with all your others guests to look after as well but everyone worked hard but it was great.

“I have had many meals at the hotel – both my husband and I and with friends and family and I’ve always been impressed with both the quality of the food and the service. Staff are friendly and attentive and the variety of dishes on offer suits any taste… my husband is quite a fussy eater & he cleans his plate every time! We had a lovely romantic meal for my birthday, we dined over the Christmas period with friends and most recently my cousin’s family with her two children came for a meal. The children were looked after, and a high-chair was provided too. Service was unhurried and staff really listen to your needs and make helpful suggestions, which to me is a sign of outstanding customer service. We stayed for 3 hours and had a thoroughly relaxing, pleasant time. It’s the best dining location in the area by a long, long way. We’ll be coming back again!”

“On Saturday 19th January we celebrated my daughters 18th Birthday at the Caprice restaurant. We looked at several venues back in October, but it was when we were shown around your restaurant by Nic that we decided to go with yourselves. Nic took the time to show us around in a relaxed and unhurried manner which proved that he valued customers as a priority on his time. I anticipated this way of thinking would be reflected in the service we would get, and was proved right. On the day, your team gave us the perfect level of service. Jaideep was attentive without being obtrusive. We were treated with the highest level of courtesy, and nothing was too much trouble, even though we had a few unusual requests. We really did experience the epitome of high service. The food was delicious, especially the lamb. Our compliments to the chef. All the guests commented on the venue itself. They were all impressed with the modern elegant restaurant and the layout of the bar and lounge area where we adjourned to after the meal. Our thanks to those behind the scene who coordinated the event. Despite the severe weather threatening to disrupt things, by some miracle all the guests managed to attend. The event was not only a success, thanks to yourselves it was a triumph. Assuring you of my kindest best wishes and gratitude.”

“I celebrated my 70th birtday at this Crowne Plaza We were a party if 18 dining in the Caprice Restaurant eating from the table d’hote menu . Eveything was well organised the food was served quickly with no mix up over the menu choices and was of an excellent quality .An area in the bar had been reserved for us for our pre dinner drinks All staff were friendly courteous and helpful. There was even a pianist playing in the background giving an ambiance of gentle sophistication however I imagine this because it was a Saturday night, rather than for my function. but it enhanced my enjoyment of the event. Six of us stayed at the hotel and once again the staff at breakfast were extremely pleasant and the food tasty A big thank you to Liz the event coordinator, the manager, reception bar and restaurant staff for an enjoyable day-well done all!!”

“Unusual find - We heard about the Caprice through tripadvisor and decided to give it a go. The food was out of this world the choice on both menus was superb. From starters through to desserts everyone of us enjoyed our evening. The cheese board which was all English cheeses was worth every penny. The prices are equivalent to any other mainstream restaurant…”

Had we been royalty, we could not have received better treatment and cannot thank the whole of the team for all they did – food and service. There was such care to detail and we felt the staff added to the very special occasion of my dad’s 90thbirthday. The restaurant is very highly recommended as far as we are all concerned. Please pass on our thanks for all those involved – in the kitchens and in the restaurant itself, Many thanks”

“This is a great hotel, very NEW, so really clean and the facilities are excellent. Most impressive though is the food and drink offer. The beer quality was excellent and food – especially the curry menu was outstanding – it was without a doubt the best Indian food I have had in a long time and it was reasonably priced and served in a hotel! It’s Ideally located for a number of attractions i.e. Legoland etc. and London – brilliant hotel – great stay”

“We stayed at the hotel from Thursday to Saturday 19th to 21st July prior to our Daughter’s Wedding a couple of days ago. Our overall impression of the venue was highly favourable. We loved the decor throughout the hotel. The bedrooms were stylish and well appointed. If this flagship Crowne Plaza is a sign of the future then someone has got it absolutely right in our opinion. My Wife dealt with Liz Whitehead who organised our dining requirements for last Friday evening extremely efficiently for our party of 18. We would particularly like to praise your lovely Indian gentleman, Mr Sumit, who together and his team in the restaurant and kitchens, provided us all with an excellent meal which was impeccably served throughout. Our whole party was of the opinion that the standard of the food surprised and delighted and totally exceeded our expectations for the Crowne Plaza. Please convey our thanks for all those concerned in your team who all gave excellent service with smiles during our two nights with you. Overall a memorable start to our daughter’s Wedding Weekend which was absolutely perfect”

We had a meal in the bar which was very busy but the food was excellent and the service excellent too. At check out I asked for directions and again the receptionist went out of her way to be helpfull. We will stay here again no doubt the staff were superb thanks very much!!”
