First time to the Hunter Valley for a special 30th Birthday getaway with my boyfriend. This hotel was honestly one of the best we have stayed in. So clean, so helpful & friendly. We had a ball! The Brewery was fun with great food & drinks, as was the breakfast the next morning at Red Salt. We went 3 weeks... More

While my husband was attending a conference at the venue I took the opportunity to use the hotels's facilities and visit some of the local wineries, cheese makers and the chocolate factory. Unfortunately, during our stay, the kitchen was being renovated. This led to fewer meal options when dining in and long queues for those attending the conference, particularly on... More

Room well enough appointed, but mattress TERRIBLE in this room ( 254) and should have been replaced long before now. Toilet roll holder is often badly located but this one really does win first prize for ridiculous. Lighting in bathroom not adequate. Parking is AWFUL. Apart from that, staff are good and service fine. A very large crowd at breakfast... More

Enjoyed a two day conference at this pleasant hotel. The location is superb and centrally located to all local wineries. The rooms are clean and the linen is fresh. Catering for 150 wasn't an issue for the staff , the meals were tasty and still hot at point of serving. The downstairs pool side bar is a pleasant way to... More

All dad's descendants gathered for the weekend. Golf was played, A slap up dinner for 40 was held in a function room. We all stayed over. The villas and rooms were comfortable, the pool was warm, breakfast was delicious. The resort is close to vineyards, a zoo, airport and many restaurants. It was a wonderful weekend.

We stay at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley whenever we have a weekend at the Hunter Valley. I've also attended a conference there. The hotel is located close to Pokolbin and the meals and service are both sensational. We've never been disappointed when we've stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.
