My partner have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Terrigal many times over the nine years we have been together. It has always been our favourite place to go as we always enjoy the experience. Unfortunately the last two times we have been there we have been greatly disappointed. The breakfast while expensive has always been great but this time was... More

The hotel itself is very nice, the room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was nice, but I hate shower curtains, they seem gross and dirty. The view from the balcony was great and looked right over the ocean and pool area. The spa was lovely and warm and uncover. We did order room service and... More

Stayed here for a night with my partner. I’ve never been disappointed from staying on an IHG property, but I must say, Crowne plaza Terrigal was a bit disappointing. Reception staff that checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered a room service dinner and after spending a few minutes trying to call through in room dining, we... More

I stayed here for 2 days recently. From the moment I walked in I felt I was being bombarded with upsells and extra fees. Do I really need to join a club to get free internet, a newspaper and late check out? I reluctantly did join on the basis that I was promised I would not receive a single email.... More

Beautiful location opposite the beach and only steps away from beachside cafés and shops....our room overlooked the pool and was very clean and comfortable - particularly the king size bed. Would definitely stay again.

Priority rewards night, and enjoyed the IHG member perks. Staff were friendly and efficient but had too much of a corporate feel than a holiday atmosphere. Would have been great to have seen staff in Hawaiian shirts to capitalise on the location as there is a lot to get excited about having such exclusivity right on the beach. Checkin and... More

While accomodation ,staff and views are always good ,I should have learnt from our previous long weekend stay and had breakfast elsewhere.

The overall experience in Crowne Plaza was really good. The staff are quite warm-hearted and very friendly. If you are an IHG member, definitely you could enjoy some special rights, e.g. free WIFI, late check-out. If the noise from bar downstairs can be lower at night, definitely it will add more points to this hotel.

Recently enjoyed a lovely dinner at SeaSalt restaurant in Crowne Plaza Terrigal. The menu was very comprehensive and varied- in price and in offerings- very innovative with great fresh produce of a high standard. Service was attentive and efficient without being intrusive. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant when staying in the hotel or just eating locally as we did.
