We booked into an apartment suite And it was fabulous! The views and the service are 1st Class and the restaurant and facilities are great. 10 out of 10 A must stay when visiting Hunter Valley. The staff can't do enough to help you and are always an hand if you should need them. Nothing is a problem.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. However, check in was disorganised, took ages and the hotel lost my corporate credit card details which caused considerable inconvenience. The breakfast menu was also very inflexible. A colleague was charged full breakfast cost (over $25$ for a single latte. Surely discretion and a short trip to the downstairs cafe would have... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa for our friends wedding and it was ok. Cleaning staff were supposed to come every day and after a few days of not coming we had to ring up and complain to get it done. They didn't have a washing machine so it cost $8 a load to wash and dry. Upon checking... More

We love this place! For the past seven years we have been staying at the crowne plaza hunter valley either once or twice a year. We have even got our friends hooked on it. The rooms are clean, spacious and airy and the hotel foyer is beautiful. The staff are friendly and efficient. Our favorite thing is the buffet breakfast.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 4 nights. The villa had 2 bedrooms and a super spacious lounge area with full kitchen. If you love playing golf, all you need to do is open the door and go for it. The resort is surrounded by 18 holes and the views are just spectacular. My favourite was the 18th, next... More

For the past three years I've been staying at the Crowne Plaza whenever I visit the Hunter for an overnight trip. Although I've tried several others in the area, most of which have been pretty good, the Crowne Plaza always excels. The front-of-house service is friendly and efficient from the time of checking in; the restaurant staff are welcoming and... More

30 of us stayed here for a pre-wedding celebration, rooms are nice but the lovedale restaurant near the pool is miserable. Terrible food, missed 3 of our meals all together & mixed up another 3 orders, took 1.5 hours to get food. Ended up going hungry. Would never ever go here again.

Dear RubyandTitus Firstly, I would like to thank you for taking the time to review. I am disappointed to hear about the poor experience you had on the day for pre wedding celebrations. We are still in the process of ironing out some operational issues that have become apparent since The Lovedale refurbishment in December and since then has almost... More

We booked 2 x 2 bedrooms apartments for a family get-together overlooking the golf lake. Crowne Plaza as globally known for its extended quality service delivered just that in this small part of Australia.
