My wife and I went there for a night away. This is our 6th time we have stayed there and we have never been disappointed . We have stayed in city view, spa and balcony harbour view and just harbour view rooms. They are all big with a separate bedroom from lounge and kitchenette with plenty of room. Close to... More

I stayed there just for a night. The room is spacious and very quite. The front office staff is very attentive. I order room service once and its take 1 hour for my salad to be served in my room. She also forget to bring my green tea. Overall the hotel is just nice

A few weeks ago, we spent one Saturday night in Crown Plaza Hotel in New Castle. Our initial plan was to visit the Hunter Valley wineries and spend the week-end in Hunter Valley. When it came to accommodation and dining, choices in Hunter Valley area are limited. We wanted to be in an area where there is more night life... More

From the time i arrived, the parking valet parked my car with ease, check in was a breeze and I was upgraded for being an IHG member to a harbour view room which was great. Didnt know how to surf the channels on the TV but as soon as my room service arrived for dinner, the lady delivering my meals... More

Rooms are spacious, very comfortable with good views of the working harbour. Staff are friendly and courteous. Nice to be able to open windows in the rooms to enjoy the sea breezes. Only downside was the low quality TV picture, the hotel still uses analogue TV distribution system, a bit strange when digital quality TV is the norm at home.

Even though the hotel is just what you would expect from a 4 star hotel, the service is outstandingly friendly from the woman who practically begged me to let her cook me a breakfast omelet to the attentive, pleasant bellboys. We also had a suite on the top floor overlooking the harbour, the view was worth the extra money.

Stayed one night as a getaway and found the hotel to pleasantly represented. Am a travel agent by trade so have seen many hotels, and for the area the Crowne Plaza is very good.

Stayed one night here. This property probably checked all the boxes of an occasional traveler. A fairly good hotel in this region. Location: This property is located by the river – this is very nice as the view is great. There’re some food establishments within walking distance, but would suggest you to do some research before setting off. However, due... More

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.
