Just spent one night at the Crowne Plaza. We had a family wedding to attend so we had 7 rooms booked. We had a bus to catch to the wedding at 1.30 so at the time of booking we asked if we could check in at 12pm even though it is normally 2pm. This was not a problem and we... More

Dear krush7, Thanks so much for your review. I'm thrilled that the team were able to help provide a good base for this very special occasion. Thanks as well for the great comment about the egg station, it is certainly a very popular aspect of our breakfast offering. We've recently spent a great deal of time and effort to refresh... More

Rooms are comfortable but bathrooms dated! push buttons on phone did not work and in room directory had lots of errors e.g. gym opening times. Breakfast buffet was good-eggs cooked to order HOWEVER waited 45 minutes for coffee!! Dinner was a DISASTER after being seated we were IMMEDIATELY given bread with dukkah,oil and balsamic-this must have been an omen as... More

The whole hotel is in need of a refurb. The bathroom was fight; never seen so much dust around a mirror. We stayed here because the family loves the buffet. Guess what? The buffet is no more. We were given some lame excuse about customers wanting a better al a carte menu. Pity that's not the case. Very disappointing for... More

I booked a superior room for one person through Wotif, the room was moderately spacious with a king size bed, day bed and separate office area. The room air-con temperature was set at the one temperature, fortunately the double fabric blind keeps the chill-out (very important in winter). The bathroom facilities are utilitarian but they do the job. Bed sheets... More

Good location close to everything. Rooms were a bit small for our family but we were expecting similar so no great drama. Car park is a bit of a dogs breakfast,small and limited spaces. Breakfast was of good quality I thought.

Stayed here for one night for a quick weekend trip. Staff were friendly & efficient. Rooms were quite spacious with two double beds. Beds were very comfortable. The shower was over the bath but that didn't bother me. Parking underneath car park was fine for 18$ cheaper then Sydney. One problem I found was there was no guest parking so... More

We stayed for 4 nights with our children, the room was very small and the bathroom needed a revamp. The location is really convenient, close to city centre, restaurants and shops. The buffet breakfast is average, takes 10 mins to get a cup of tea, the replenishing of the food is even slower, and the variety is a little sad.... More
