We have stayed at Crowne a few times now and it has always been lovely. The highlight for us is the buffet breakfast with an egg bar, so different and has quite the variety. Rooms are always clean and have an awesome shower, the 2 bedroom villas are also great with fantastic space. Staff have always been nice and friendly...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017 via mobile

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...

The highlight of my four night stay for a conference was the cheerful professionalism of staff. We had 400 people here, and nothing was too much trouble. There was only one hiccup when one of our lunches was a bit late, but staff went out of their way to accommodate us. As a previous reviewer mentioned, room servicing is extra...

My husband and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 3 nights recently and we were very happy with the hotel. The purpose of our stay was mainly for a short "golf holiday" and with a golf course on site, the hotel was perfect for us. Being platinum members of IHG, we were upgraded to a one bedroom villa with...

Attended a conference at the venue. Everything you could wish for was in the villa I stayed in. Need to be aware villas are not cleaned daily unless you pay extra. Breakfast was what you would expect at a resort with anything you could think of available. Best of all were staff, so helpful and happy to help out.

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...

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....
