Great staff / Great facilities / Great atmosphere --- worth it! Try their FULL breakfast - it's fantastic! We had a couple of trouble makers playing knock and run one afternoon. We mentioned it to the staff who went out of their way to track them down and deal with the situation. We were impressed with their professionalism and follow...

Right from check in the staff were welcoming and friendly and helpful. Our car was parked via the valet, or on street was available. We were upgraded without asking to a harbour view room. The staff acted quickly and efficiently to deal with some feral unsupervised kids who thought it was a great game to play knock and Run on...

I stayed overnight while on business and really was not impressed. This property is not up to the usual Crowne Plaza standard or quality. Upon entering the room I was pleasantly surprised at how big and spacious the room was however, that's where things ended. Unfortunately the bathroom was not cleaned well and there was something brown in the toilet...

Stayed for one night on the way to Sidney. The room was light and airy with a great view of the harbour. The bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom sufficient for our needs. Shower over bath which is a personal hate - but the pressure was good, so not all bad! The internet is free in your room...

Stayed here 2 nights with family. Whilst we didn't find much to do in Newcastle the hotel was superb. Rooms are modern, clean and well appointed. We had a harbour view room which was great. The breakfast buffet is divine. But the real winner is the staff. To a person they were just so welcoming, helpful and happy. The place...

We paid a little more to stay at the Crowne Plaza and did not feel we received the value. Issues were that the sheets were not changed the entire 5 days we were there. We know this as there was an obvious stain on them the day we arrived that was still there when we left. There was no soap...
