Drove from Sydney to the Hunter Valley to view the vineyards around Hunter Valley and stayed here for 2 nights. On arrival the reception was warm and friendly although there was no one to help us with our luggage. The room was spacious and very comfortable with mini bar, TV and a good heating/air-conditioning. The bathroom was great twin sinks... More

Spent a night with friends in a 2 bedroom villa. Clean, comfortable and a decent amount of space to relax and have a giggle with some of the local wine purchased. No free wifi. Instant coffee available, disappointed as most accommodation offers pod coffee or plunger. Nothing exceptional about this Crowne except its location.

A perfect location for groups - there were 20+ of us - the chalets were very spacious and clean, comfortably sleeping 6 people. The main bar area was great as either a pre-dinner meeting point or dinner... The pool table definitely got a workout from us! The hotel is conveniently located to all of the wineries, can't comment on the... More

Stayed for a conference held at the hotel. Rooms are adequate. If you are without a car then your dining options are very limited and not great quality. Tonight I had to call room service 3 times (over 30 minutes) before I eventually got an answer. Then to be told there is a 70 minute wait for food. I was... More

The resort itself is located close to the majority of vineyards, restaurants and attractions. It caters well for larger groups and family vacations. It is clean, large and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The villa was perfect for the girls to spread out and when it came time for getting ready in the mornings there was ample...

The Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley is great for that quick weekend away. Upon arrival Kris at the Front Desk very nice and upgraded us to a 2 Bedroom Villa which was much appreciated and a bit unexpected. The Villa itself is fairly large with two separate bathrooms which is great when travelling with friends and families. The Lovedale downstairs was... More

Situated early on into cessnock, i believe, you won't miss the Crowne Plaza. Accommodation is good, quiet rooms and perfect for relaxing. Not far from the hunter Vally gardens and other food areas, would visit again.

Love coming here. We make an effort to visit minimum 2x a year. Caters well for large groups and has plenty of activities. Not too far from the main vineyards so works out to be very convenient. IHG rewards make it all the worth while also! Extremely happy to be returning
