Stayed here for three nights for a conference. Check-in was an efficient process, with staff also on the roadside waiting to help arriving guests. Was offered a room upgrade which was a large room with bay side views. Despite the hotel being very full, the rooms themselves were very quiet with the only sound that you can hear is from... More

Recently stayed overnight to catch up with friends and enjoy a night out. The hotel is in a very convenient location, overlooking the harbour iwhich is so peaceful, pretty views up to Nobbys. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. As Platinum members of IHG Rewards program, we were greeted as such and upgraded to a superior room. Drinks... More

Hotel is more expensive than other locations in the area, but it is worth it! We chose to pay extra for a view of the habour, I highly recommend this option! Clean hotel, friendly staff. It was fun watching the ships come in!

It is only a very basic hotel but charge at higher price. Not truly a Crown Plaza. Room standard is a holiday inn. Decoration is very basic. But room is big with sitting area and separate sleeping area. Some room are not so clean with smelly carpet. Cockroaches found in the room. Toiletries are too basic as Holiday inn grade.... More

This hotel has the trappings of a 4-star hotel but didn't really feel that way. It was clean, service was fine, morning breakfast was below par, location had lovely views but overall, not four star I think.

The Crowne Plaza is in a great location - not only central but nice and relaxing by the harbour - nice place for a stroll in the evening. The hotel is pretty standard for this type of accommodation except for a few things. Firstly the staff are very friendly and eager to ensure that you feel like a guest, as... More

Have stayed at the Crowne consistently over the last 7 years on both business and private trips and the service is excellent. Never any issues that aren't resolved with the customer in mind. We usually book the king spa suite with balcony and the location is excellent for a working port. Lots to see if you don't mind the ships... More

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 2 nights at a King Spa Harbourside suite on the top floor of the hotel. We were checked in pretty quickly and provided the directions to our room. The best views are from rooms located at the far end of the hotel and though it was a bit of a walk to get... More

Crowne Plaza is easy to find and in a fabulous location on the water promenade with lots of windows for the view. There is obviously a good boss because the staff are all happy and very helpful. The hotel is modern, very comfortable, and it is worthwhile paying the little extra to get amazing views of tugboats right outside your... More

Stayed for 2 nights on business in a very comfortable room overlooking the harbour. The room was clean and well presented with a large and comfortable bed. I did not use it, but the kitchenette area was also clean with a small sink. Most importantly for me, the wifi was good, the plugs on the desk could actually be reached... More
