Great hotel. Excellent facilities, really big pool, great spa, Central location, golf course! Food options are overpriced and under standard, given the competition in the Hunter. Service in the fine dining restaurant was good for food, terrible for wine! One girl on for the bar and the restaurant!!! We looked over a building site, which was a bit noisy early... More

The Crowne Plaza is perfectly appointed for families. With Tennis Courts, Huge Swimming pool, table tennis and heaps of space, its the idea combination. Set in the heart of the Hunter Valley only minutes from the Vineyards, its easy to occupy both parent and children! The apartments are well equipped with plenty of plates and cooking utensils. Not all have... More

Check-in was friendly and efficient, with recognition as a returning guest. Our three bedroom villa was spacious, with master bedroom and en suite on the first floor and two bedrooms, bathroom, and spacious lounge & kitchen on the ground floor. It was well maintained. The pool is a reasonable size, albeit not designed for swimming laps given when busy is... More

I am a frequent visitor to the Hunter Valley and this is my first experience at the Crown Plaza - and the last! Originally part of a wedding party, the room was well appointed but sadly overlooked a building site. Prior warning would have been nice. 2nd night I was to stay in a 2 bed villa and in total...

Was very impressed with the hotel from a business perspective. Offered very well appointed rooms, great staff, food and bar service. The attached golf course was not bad for a hit although for the really keen golfer I'd prefer the Vintage for a round. Location is perfect and a great base to explore the Hunter.

Stopped by the amazing Hunter Wine Country Markets at De Bortoli Cellar Door (Can't miss it) next stop, wow, A Beer Brewery in the home of wine country at Crowne Plaza. What an oasis for the thirsty traveller. Must try is the award winning Loveable Larger, (Bavarian Style), but the big call out from Bar Manager Jarrod, is the Potts... More

Stayed in one of the apartments here with my wife, two young children and both my parents and my in laws to go visit the HVG Xmas lights. We've stayed here many times before and are always generally impressed but this trip was a little disappointing in that our room was not ready until quite late in the day, when... More
