I stayed in the Hunter Valley for 4 nights for a conference. We opted to stay on site, at Crowne Plaza, as it was convenient. We were given a marginal discount for conference stays.

The hotel is comfortable, the rooms are in good condition, the dining facilities solid, and overall the experience was very good. The conference facilities have been expanded since I was last at the Crown Plaza, and provide a lot of flexibility for large...

Stayed two nights in King Spa Suite. Room was good but staff at reception and the Redsalt Restaurant spoiled the experience for us. Reception staff not helpful at all, more worried about getting money out of you. Restaurant staff basically require more training. Spent a lot of money on a mediocre resort.
