Two little issues Gym was a little small for the size of the place and you had to push your door to ensure it actually locked - However my room was very very good...

We stayed here on the weekend for a Christmas work party function and it was so comfortable. We arranged for an early check in because we were going on a wine tour at 11 and they were able to have our rooms ready by then which was fantastic! It’s close to all the vineyards and it’s very convenient. The room...

For the value that we paid for a room with a Motel like standard, Not worth it. The room smelled very bad like it was not cleaned properly. The pillow cases specially, smells like sweat - so gross! The carpet and bed need a change. The food is 2/5. But the dish we ordered was salty and that is already...

First of all plastic mattress protectors are meant for hospitals not hotels...nothing worse than a crappy sleep from sweating your butt off!! Security isn't the best, you need to swipe 3 doors to get into your room but only one was actually locked. No mini bar - this could have been from theft though. Room was clean, staff were nice,...

Enjoyed a lovely visit to the Spa today with a friend we enjoyed a Pamper Me Please package. We both enjoyed the pampering we received from our therapists. I can highly recommend a visit to this tranquil place. The beds in the salon were not only comfortable but were also heated. Very relaxing a real treat.

We booked two of the three bedroom villas for our weekend away. What an excellent spot! The hotel itself is in a great location, close to the Gardens and some great wineries. Our villas were located in the East Village, which was lovely and quiet. The villas were quite spacious and contained everything we needed for a weekend away. We...

Stayed at the hotel to enjoy the Hunter Valley wine tours and it is ideally situated for that with the "Two Fat Blokes " picking you up from the hotel.

We recently stayed at the Crowne for a friend's wedding. While our stay was brief, the resort was pleasant, and the facilities useful and comfortable. A good night's sleep was had. Crowne is very conveniently located on Wine Country Drive, which is close to both the main areas of Pokolbin, as well as Lovedale and Rothbury. The complex is quite...
