It seems reasonable to break this review into two sections ; positives and negatives. Let's start with the positives. Positives - fantastic grounds which are neat and well presented. The facilities are child and adult friendly, with a generous sized outdoor pool, giant chess sets, pool table, table tennis tables, tennis courts and golf. Staff are friendly. Hotel rooms are...

My son was recently married at Hunter Valley Gardens and family from NZ and Australia stayed in various 3 bedroom villas and hotel rooms at Crowne Plaza. The villas allowed family members to stay together and it felt like home. Staff were helpful, answered the phone promptly, transported us by golf cart. There is a large swimming pool but the... More

Stayed at the Crowne for a weekend of skydiving and wine tasting, booked a two bedroom villa to share with the Brother and Sister in Law. The Crowne is situated in a great position not far from Cessnock and not far from the Wineries, and its on the main road so its not hard to find at night. If Golf... More

Stayed last year for our wedding anniversary. Stayed again this year because we enjoyed it last year. We booked the romance package this time. We did not receive our complimentary chocolates, but upon check in, found we had been upgraded from a standard room to a 2 bedroom villa (#66) with WIFI included, so don't want to complain about some...

A golf resort with rooms that are pretty good. The staff were friendly and the food is nice and pricing is comparable to restaurants in this area. Like the latte served in the redsalt restaurant during breakfast.

The grounds surrounding the villas are a little bland but the villas are great. Very large and comfortable, perfect for families and are serviced daily. Attending a conference and the food provided is some of the best 'conference' food I have had. The hotel rooms are comfortable but many would only have a view of the other wing. There is... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days attending a corporate conference. The hotel is built around it's own golf course so the facilities were generally good although quite spread out. The breakfast buffet was extensive and good quality. We stayed in a self contained villa that we found comfortable but lacking in the things that could have made it... More
