Positive Reviews

positive:

Fabulous location

Guests love the location of the Crowne Plaza Newcastle and rate the harbour views highly. Enjoy them from a harbourside room or from the Seasalt Restaurant and Bar. Even better, step outside and stand at the water's edge. Guests enjoyed seeing the local fishing boats and tugs.

positive:

Spacious suites with good amenities

The size of the suites at this hotel go down well, with guests finding they have ample space to spread out a little and relax. The separate seating area gives a home-like vibe, as does the separate breakfast area. Suites are also described as clean and comfortable.

positive:

Guest experience is a priority

Reviews indicate that the staff at the Crowne Plaza Newcastle put guest satisfaction at the top of their list of priorities. Guests rate the service culture here highly, commenting how they felt welcome and were well looked after during their stay.


Negative Reviews

negative:

Slow service in the bar

Although guests are generally positive about their experience in the hotel's restaurant and bar, a number of reviews indicate that slow service in the bar is a fairly regular occurrence. Guests report waiting for up to 30 minutes to be served a glass of wine - a little unexpected near the Hunter wine valley!

negative:

Occasional issues with water pressure

While not a frequent complaint, some guests do mention that they found the water pressure in their suite was dismal. You might end up taking a less than refreshing shower in the morning.

negative:

Extra costs mount up

The Crowne Plaza Newcastle is far from a budget hotel, so you shouldn't expect the rooms to come in that cheaply. What bothers guests more is the array of extra charges. You should anticipate paying additional fees for Internet access, parking and service charges for room service.
