We have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley quite a few times in the past. One of the reasons we have chosen to stay there over other acommodation (apart from it being a nice hotel) is that it had Foxtel. We like to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine and watch rugby or cricket when we are... More

I stayed for 2 nights at the Crown Plaza attending a conference. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room I had was in the main block and was large, clean and well appointed. The location is perfect for visiting the wineries as well as having a round of golf. The pool was being cleaned (and was too cold... More

We booked a couple of rooms for 15-16/08 for a relaxing getaway with our cousins. Arrived on the Saturday afternoon and imagine our surprise to find we had both been upgraded to a two bedroom villa(each)!! The rooms were spacious and very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast wonderful. Highly recommend this for an escape from... More

Welcomed by very friendly staff and a glass of mulled wine. Porter dropped bags into my room. I stayed in a suite at the hotel and was very impressed. Beautiful, clean, spacious room with a balcony. The room had a separate bath & shower, large bathroom - the lighting wasn't great for applying make up (the only negative). Bathrobes &... More

The hotel rooms were great and the location in the fantastic hunter wine country couldn't ask for more. Only stayed one night but could have stayed a week. Staff were friendly and very helpful when booking our wine tour. Didn't have a chance to eat there but will try next visit.

Stayed at plenty of hotels for business travel. In 2015 no free wifi in the Hunter is silly. Cessnock CBD has free wifi in town 5 minutes away. You really should catch up with the rest of the world for such a large chain hotel. I will not be back for this one reason. The staff and everything else was... More

Loved this region. This hotel matched our expectations. We shared a villa between 4 of us which worked very well. Staff were great from check in until check out. Our shower was a little slow in warming up but didnt need to wait long. We also ate on-site as hadnt arranged anything due to our unexpected late arrival (thanks Jetstar!)... More

Rooms were nice (although one bedside table to share between two queen size beds??) and lovely bathroom with big bath tub. Breakfast was excellent and the service could not be faulted. Lots of activities to do and places to sit and relax with a drink. We enjoyed our stay here and would come back again.

My room was clean and modern with the usual conveniences. The bed was super comfortable which was a bonus after a long day travelling. Staff were friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in my stay. Would be a good place to stay for a weekend in the hunter, if that's you ting. Only a 50 minute drive from Newcatsle...

Arrived to find the pre paid booking we had made had not been changed in the system so we did not have a room. This could have been a major fail as we were on a nice weekend away without the kids. Luckily the manager jumped in and saved the day, quickly rectifying the error and fixing us up a... More
