Beautiful location in the hunter valley and there's a lot to do (pools, tennis courts, soccer fields etc) but overall it needs a bit of TLC. My first issue was my room, the light didn't work so I just used my lamp. I can deal with that. Shower was weak, this is really annoying especially when it's cold as there...

My partner and I have just returned from a 2 night mini getaway to the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. It was fabulous. Check in was smooth, we stayed in a 1 bedroom villa which was a short stroll to the main resort. Had a few issues with the fridge when we arrived, but the maintenance team went above and beyond...

Was at the Crown Plaza for a conference, the accommodation was a three bedroom villa which was lovely, quiet and well appointed. As I was wearing heels to the conference dinner (great food too for a large amount of people) and so were the others I was sharing with, we rang concierge who promptly came and picked us up in...

This place is exactly what you'd expect of a hotel. Clean, helpful staff and very busy. We were given a room literally meters from the front reception, it was very noisy. We paid more than we normally would to stay in the Hunter thinking it would be convenient. But the restaurant was over priced and very average, so the second...

If you want a relaxing time away at the vineyards, a game of tennis or golf all with some luxury accommodation then the Crown is the place to stay. Nothing is a bother for the staff whether you want a cup of coffee or a lavish dinner you are treated like a royalty. Excellent Crown.

We joined friends for a weekend in the Hunter staying in a 3 bedroom villa. The villa was lovely and clean an comfortable. We ate in the hotel both nights. The first night we had dinner at the brewery and it was average. I had a salad which was probably the best of the meals. It was uninspiring but OK....

We have older children so there are privacy for us but I am not sure for young children but it will suite 2...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa and found the accommodation to be excellent. A good sized kitchen and living space, 2 downstairs bedrooms with 1 bathroom and a master bedroom upstairs with ensuite. We made use of the pool each day and were lucky as the pool was quiet we had plenty of choice on sun loungers. We ate...

Stayed here for a work conference, all the facilities were really good, the gym was one of the biggest hotel facilities I've seen and it had a good range of bars and restaurant fare. Shame I didn't get to use the pool as I didn't have time, looking forward to coming back so that I can test it out.
