I stayed here for just one night while at a conference in Newcastle. The hotel was very pleasant and my room was clean and very spacious. The location right on the water is also very nice. I would definitely consider staying here again when next in Newcastle.

Another excellent stay in a beautiful hotel positioned on the water's edge by the harbour. The staff are very attentive. This is certainly the best place to stay when visiting Newcastle. If dining the aged T-bone steak is a must.

Well located on the water and very helpful welcoming staff which continued into the cafe for breakfast. We had a room that enjoyed views of the water but that also means you are above the restaurant precinct which can get noisey. Conveniently located to cafes and restaurants in the area. Clean, neat and tidy but definatley dated and in need... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a work function. The hotel was beautiful, very clean and roomy. The views from our room were lovely! The breakfast downstairs was delicious, and the staff were all so friendly and nice, all with big smiles on their faces and always said hello as we walked past! Staying here made our very first...

Only spent 1 night here for work but will definitely return for pleasure. Great location with heaps of restaurants all within walking distance. Spent a lovely afternoon reading by the pool and just enjoying the sunshine. I will be back to explore more local pleasures soon.

Spent 2 nights here with friends to relax and sample the fine restaurants in Newcastle and to see the Elioth Gruner exhibition at the Newcastle Art Gallery. We really enjoyed staying at the hotel as location and service excellent.

Visited the Crowne Plaza in Newcastle with high expectations - had to be good for that price. The room was nice and with a great view - Internet service slow and with a limit ??? Breakfast what you would expect and with a good service. I tried the Room Service and the food was very simple presented and cold. I... More

What a lovely welcome, friendly and smiling staff, clean and spacious lobby. Rooms were clean and had all the facilities but open the curtains and wow what views. I would recommend the hotel but the food in the restaurant was a little pricey and not a great selection so we had our breakfast out.

We have visited this hotel 3 times, staying 2 nights each time. The staff were extremely friendly, including the lady who cleaned the room and she was just finishing her shift at the end of a long day. The staff appear to strike that difficult balance between casualness, friendliness and efficiency. We always ask for a room on the upper... More
