We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for the night and it was perfect! As soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly by staff and check in was quick and easy. The room was great with separate bedroom/living/kitchen areas which was a nice surprise. The view wasn't the best as we were on the side (overlooking the gym) but we...

I booked over the phone directly and it was a very easy experience. On arrival, everything, from the valet, to check-in, to room quality was as we would want. We were on the 2nd floor with adjoining rooms for a family of 3 adults and 2 children for 2 nights. Although it was school holidays, there weren't too many kids...

From the treating at the front door, being offered free bottle of cold water, onwards, the service culture in this hotel is one of the best I have encountered. Well done folks. The rooms are really pleasant - we have a harbour view room interconnected with another for the kids - and the extra space of a bedroom and lounge...

So close to Sydney & right on the harbour. We could sit in our room and watch the massive ships come into the port. Spectacular at night with all of the lights. We had a king suite with spa bath, on the 4th floor facing the port. Small kitchenette & lounge area & suited our needs perfectly. Staff excellent. Close...

We recently stayed for three nights during the most inclement weather that Newcastle has seen in recent times- constant rain, wind, localised flooding. But the staff of Crowne Plaza brought sunshine to each day through their service and attention to detail. Our wonderful visit began prior to our arrival with a billing error which was quickly corrected and free parking...

We have stayed here many times but this stay left us thinking wether we would come again. The location is great, the staff are friendly, but there seems to be disorganisation particularly in the restaurant.
