Stayed here for a work conference, all the facilities were really good, the gym was one of the biggest hotel facilities I've seen and it had a good range of bars and restaurant fare. Shame I didn't get to use the pool as I didn't have time, looking forward to coming back so that I can test it out.

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...

We had a degustation dinner as part of the food and wine festival. Our waitress Bec was an absolute gem(even if she didn't let my partner have a beer till after dinner. She was knowledgable, friendly and absolutely adorable. She knew about the food and the matching wines without any hesitation. Haven't enjoyed a dinner so much in years.. Also...

This is our second year in a row and we always have a great time. The accommodation is comfortable and spacious- we had a 3 bedroom villa. The decor is good but a bit dated. The primary attraction for us was the mini train that runs around the property- instant hit with the 2 year old. Very conveniently located on...

I organised a weekend here for 12 of us, playing golf both on the Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. We had 3 villas so that all of us, all men, had a bed each. The resort was faultless. Everything was exactly as we had hoped for. The highlight for some of us was the sensational buffet breakfast on Sunday morning!...

We stayed here for two nights to attend a family wedding at nearby Wandin Valley. In our view, the hotel was comfortably three stars, the rooms a little tired and there was no mini-bar in the room that we had. What surprised us was how little we got for $400 odd per night (we stayed Friday and Saturday nights so...

We stayed here for 3 nights for a family wedding and the rooms were very nice and spacious. My only gripe as usual is that it's just so expensive and if the wedding wasn't here and we weren't sharing with family then it would be to expensive for a normal holiday or trip away. I also hate how places like...

We had it stayed here for quite a few years. We booked a 3 bedroom villa this time & were pleasantly surprised at how large & roomy they were. There was a king bed with an ensuite upstairs with 2 queen beds & main bathroom downstairs. There was also a roomy lounge/ dining room and part kitchen. The kitchen has...

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. We opted to stay for an extra night for the opportunity to visit the Hunter and surrounds. Staff were pleasany. The rooms were clean and spacious....
