This weekend we went to Newcastle for a few days away and stayed at the Crowne Plaza. It is located right on the water with great views of a working harbour. The hotel is situated in the Honeysuckle development with access to lots of great restaurants. It is in easy walking distance to the centre of Newcastle or the eclectic collection of restaurants in Darby Street Cooks Hill.
The hotel is just next to the Lee Street wharf where we caught a cruise up the Hunter to Morperth. The cruise company (NOVA Cruises) also run cruises to Raymond Terrace and whale watching cruises off the coast. There is an antique market just around the corner and the hotel is just one block away from 'Civic'station at which the Sydney trains stop.
The hotels is very well maintained and we had dinner and breakfast in the Hotel's Breezes Restaurant. The food in the restaurant was simly served and the atmosphere very friendly. Overall the thing that sets this hotel apart was the service of the staff. They were exceptional friendly and really sounded like they wanted to help. The hotel has valet parking, is located next to a modern gym and has a lovely swimming pool which overlooks the harbour.
