We all had great rooms with views to the pool, all wedding guests grouped together. Some in very nice villas. Their staff were very accommodating considering we were a large group and only one of 3 wedding parties that weekend. October 30, 2011. Breakfast great, and the cafe restaurant near the pool was excellent value. Very relaxing, would stay again.

We've stayed here three times now, and every time is an absolute pleasure. The rooms are clean and a decent size, the staff are helpful and friendly, the grounds are vast and very pretty. While we always love exploring the Hunter Valley (and this is a great location to do it from) there are 2 things that always lure me... More

We have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, three times in a Villa and twice in a hotel room. This time we had a hotel room and our friend had one just down the corridor from us. I am writing this review because I haven't done one before for this property and I feel that I need to say... More

Stayed at Crowne Plaza for a midweek escape, and visited the Tea Tree Spa. Surprised that there was no one at the spa reception area to greet, and had to wait a few minutes in the lounge until a staff member came. The treatment, a Microderm facial, was very professionally done, and I was very relaxed at the end. Was... More

My friends and I stayed at the Crown Plaza at the Hunter Valley and would recommend there to any one. We had a 2 bedroom villa and it was fantastic, the beds and pillows were so comfortable, room and bathroom sizes were great. I will be staying there in my future visits to the hunter valley.

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment for a one night stay in Hunter. Most places are 2 nights min so we were pleased to find somewhere so good that we could stay one night. It was pricey at $370 a night however the apartment was lovely, well kitted out (fridge, cooking utensils etc) and very spacious. It would comfortably... More

I stayed in a room separate from the main hotel. Very spacious 2 bedrooms, bathrooms and self contained. Clean, comfortable and quiet. I had two dinners and breakfasts both of which were very good. I was there attending a convention and the venue was well suited and organised, but bandwidth was not adequate.

We visited for one night only as we had a party on in the Hunter Valley. most accommodation insists on staying 2 nights so this was one of the limited places we had to choose from Firstly, the booking process was appalling! my booking story is a very long winded and boring one so I won't go through it here...
