We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for one-night getaway on the 4th floor in a king spa room. Best location in Newcastle with an amazing view from the balcony. We have previously stayed at the Sebel (now Novotel) Newcastle Beach and although it's closer to the beach, we found the Sebel had questionable 'views'. The Crowne Plaza wins hands down on the location front.
The staff were all very pleasant; even the cleaning staff we passed in the hallway! Great bed and the suite was very, very clean. Unfortunately our room was a very long walk from the lift and stairwell, however this had the added benefit of the room being quiet with no through traffic. It's a small price to pay for the location though.
One very small negative was the breakfast room - it's in need of some updating and possibly a layout change. Breakfast was good however and the staff were quick to replenish the buffet.
We'll definitely stay here again.
