My partner and I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza Newcastle. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff and were impressed by the view from our well appointed harbour view suit. The hotel is in a great location with a multitude of restaurants, bars, theatres and shops all in easy walking distance. The constant movement of a variety... More

We stayed Australia day night along without prior knowledge with soccer teams. The attention and understanding of the staff was nothing short of amazing. They insisted on assisting us and had organised strawberries and champagne on behalf of my partner. Absolutely beautiful hotel with extremely lovely staff we will definitely be back again.

Extremely friendly staff, nice enough rooms with a nice twin Jacuzzi tub. Food quite good at the Sea Salt restaurant. Good location in the centre of the city, however the following nonsense needs to be stamped out: * 1.5% "merchant fee" on CC payments. This type of fee has to be illegal in Australia. Surely?! * AUD$ 7 (SEVEN) for... More

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights at the same time as the Australian & UAE national football teams (ahead of Asian cup semi-final). The hotel was therefore very busy and often surrounded by supporters, making it a little noisy, but nonetheless we had a good stay. It is a nice harbour front location in the Honeysuckle precinct....
