This is a great venue for a work function, plenty of rooms, plenty of function space and the bonus of golf for those that play. The food provided was of a good quality, self-serve function style. The mirror in my bathroom was a little tired, but the overall standard was very good. The bathroom was large and clean. The bed...

We stayed here the nights of the 11th and 12th of February, where nighttime temperatures didn't drop below 30 Celsius. On the first night our air conditioning didn't work. I rang reception several times only to have the phone ring out. I rang the Crowne Plaza call centre, only to be told that the Hunter Valley Crowne was "very busy"...

We spent one night at Crown Plaza hotel in Lovedale. My wife and I went there with our son, his wife and our two grand kids. The main reason was to take the grand kids to Hunter Valley gardens where they had a special display of Christmas lights. We normally visit Hunter Valley Wineries at least once a year to...

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a work conference in early January. And it was hot. So hot. The property is well spread out and offers all the amenities you'd expect from a resort. Rooms: Stayed in a 3 bedroom villa (single level) and had the ensuite. Room was adequate with a small TV, wardrobe and window. However...

Spent Friday and Saturday night at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley this past weekend with another couple. We stayed in one of the two bedroom villas - it was fantastic. We had room 503 and 504 (ground floor unit) close to the pool, so a great location. The units are really well finished, with a TV in each bedroom, and...

A second visit here inside a year and we were even more impressed this time. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Staff seemed to be genuinely interested and helpful with smiles on their faces, even though the hotel was full for the weekend. Pool and the pool area were very clean. We ate in the bar on the...

Four of us (adults) stayed here for 1 night for Day on the Green in one of the 2 bedroom villas. It was very expensive, as you expect on event weekends, but villa was spacious and clean. Air conditioning needs an overhaul; the one we had in our bedroom was noisy and it was like having a small aircraft taking...
