Stayed here over the weekend to which we had very comfortable and welcoming stay. All the staff were excellent in providing a genuinely warm and friendly service. Reception were very helpful. I do recommend taking up the Valet parking for $29 it is worth it. They were quick to park our car and when we were leaving with a quick... More

We came into Newcastle from Maitland to take up a Christmas gift voucher for dinner out and decided to stay overnight. The staff were friendly and helpful, the downstairs reception and lounge area really welcoming and easy to just hang out in, especially with the water views from our comfy chairs, unlike some stuffy Sydney hotels where everyone is too...

Great place to stay we first-timers in Newcastle by the water - Away from the all the old, seedy streets of this unpredictable and neglected town!

We stayed at the crown Plaza because we could sleep 4 of us in 1 room. The location is really convenient and the pull out sofa bed is a bonus when the kids are coming too. The only thing which was no big deal is the rooms are really hard to get into using the swipe key. We found we... More

For me this is THE hotel to stay when in Newcastle. Right next to the river and great walkways, also the Honeysuckle district is right nearby with lots of restaurants and bars. Not quite on Hunter Street but about 2 mins walk. I found all of the staff really good - very friendly and willing to help. Breakfast is buffet... More

We stayed here recently for one night, as we were in the city. From the moment we got there and were received by valet parking, the concierge (?) was incredibly helpful.

We had a 2 night stay here in a Harbourside room, which was actually a suite dividing the bedroom from a lounge area. The room was quiet ,clean and totally convenient to the Harbourside precinct of restaurants. The buffet breakfast was excellent even with a juicer to make your own combo of juice. I would definitely stay there again when... More
