I stayed at the Crowne Hunter for 4 days for a conference and was thoroughly impressed with the friendly attitude of every individual staff member i spoke to. It's a beautiful property and I particularly enjoyed heading out for a morning jog in the neighboring vineyards. . . Being a current New Yorker it was pretty exhilarating to have kangaroos as jogging partners on the regular!
I had a prepaid rate and they were even nice enough to honor the same rate when I decided to extend my stay by an additional night.
I stayed in a Spa Suite room which was massive to be in on my own, but it certainly impressed on the entertainment end.
Didn't have the chance to hit the links, but the course was well maintained and quite pretty.
Breakfast in the buffet was a bit expensive at $38 as I'm on a health kick, but you can also sneak downstairs to the less formal cafe for a cheaper and still tasty bite.
*Disregard my spa rating I didnt visit.
