We spent 3 days in the middle of winter and it was a lovely time. The kids club looks after the little ones while you go and have a couple of hours wine tasting. The restaurant is great also for families and the evening movies for kids is a great distraction for them. The two bedroom villas are perfect as... More

Both rooms had a separate bathroom and a nice large lounge room and kitchen. Next time you travel to the Hunter Valley with friends, why not book some... More

Overall, the Crowne Plaza seemed like a great place, particularly for families. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast options were hands down, the best I've ever seen. The room was clean and we were really looking forward to a relaxing stay. However, upon opening the door to our room we were hit by the most horrible toxic... More

It's a beautiful place to be. The staff were very helpful and informative. I needed a power plug converter for my camera charger and the staff was happy to look for it and got one for me. Among the many facilities we used the gym and the swimming pool. Enjoyed a lot taking pictures near the pool. Will definitely visit... More

We visited the Crowne as an extended family to celebrate a birthday over the weekend. We had a 2 bedroom villa which was spacious, clean and stylish. Food was great with lots of different options. Family friendly resort. Recommend booking breakfast on the Sunday as it gets quite busy.
