Positive Reviews

Excellent location

One of the most highly rated features of the Crown on Darby is its location. For many guests, the setting on an “Eat Street” was a major highlight. And of course, you'll be within each reach of the Hunter wine valley should you need something to wash dinner down with. Guests also appreciate being able to walk to shops and the beach.

Apartments are spacious and modern

The majority of guests are thrilled by the standards of the apartments on offer, with many describing them as spacious and modern. They seem to be minimalist by some standards but offer a good choice of amenities nonetheless. Note, though, that a few guests found the studios a little small. These are perhaps more suitable for an overnight stay.

Decent range of services

Although a handful of guests would have preferred daily housekeeping (as opposed to every other day), they are generally pleased with the range of services available. Among the highlights is the garden which is a nice place to relax and the fitness room.

Negative Reviews

Some reports of noise

Several reviews suggest that there is some noise to contend with. Those guests in apartments facing Derby Street mention traffic noise and the sound of people visiting the various restaurants. Guests in the rear facing apartments could hear the garage door.

Occasional examples of poor service

While many guests are complimentary about the staff at the Crown on Darby, there do appear to be occasional issues with customer service. Problems range from an indifferent attitude to glaring examples of poor service.

Parking costs extra

A small number of guests mention that they would prefer parking to be included. That said, free parking is available on the street and you will only pay if you wish to use the secure garage facility.
