I recently stayed 2 nights for a business trip on a site visit for an upcoming work conference retreat. The accommodation was superb, the breakfast @$25 pp is excellent value and the beer/cider/pizza bar downstairs is upmarket and delicious. Room Service was quick and all the staff we encountered were friendly and professional. I will be making a personal visit...

Taylah looked after us pre the wedding and leading up making sure the guests were sorted. Had a great weekend at the hotel with the wedding being off site. So much variety on the resort with food, accomodation types and activities. Definitely the right choice and will be back soon.

Stayed here for one night over the weekend, After the mix up of being given a room which was already occupied. The hotel is conveniently located to the wineries, rooms are clean and quite big & the service was good. We had dinner at the restaurant downstairs which was great & enjoyed the buffet breakfast- definitely a lot of food!!

I have stayed hear several times over the years with family and friend, due to the great location, fantastic food options and most of all I think the villas are perfect! But the bedding comfort is always a joy.

The villa two bedroom suites at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley are spacious, clean and well appointed. Perfect for colleagues to stay in and spread out without having to share a room. The overall venue is well appointed and the staff friendly. Overall a great location to launch yourself into a round of gold or explore wine country.

Staying in early June 2015 in a deluxe hotel room. Accommodation was comfortable, fairly spacious. The resort facilities are good although they could benefit from a indoor spa for adults.
