Thank you for taking the time to review Crown on Darby.
We are glad you enjoyed our stay and we hope to see you back in the near future.
Everything about this motel was perfect, from the location, service and amenities. It is close to town, restaurants and beaches, ideally situated. The comfort and quirkiness was excellent. The garage was also excellent and the access to a variety of eating places on Darby St was helpful for us. Rooms were well set up with sitting room, desk space and a nice vista opening to a pleasant courtyard. Free and good wifi was a bonus. We will stay again.
Thank you for taking this opportunity to leave your review of Crown on Darby, we are so pleased that you have enjoyed your experience with us and look forward to your return when next you have the chance to venture to Newcastle.
We stayed in a spa apartment. The spa was not big enough for us both but my husband is 6'5 so that's not particularly surprising. The apartment was large and bright and quite lovely. The balcony overlooked Darby street and We had some lovely live music coming in the balcony doors on Sunday afternoon from buskers outside, but the bedroom is at the back so no street noise at all. There is plenty of room
throughout the entire apartment, but the bedroom itself is just a bedroom- everything else is outside the bedroom including closets, chairs etc which was not a problem. The bed was super comfortable. Booking, arriving and departing was a breeze and the garage was secure and easy to use. The location is great, Darby street fed and watered us a couple of times and it's a 10 minute stroll to the river side, or about $8 in an Uber. It's about 2.5km to Mereweather beach too so great location unless you desperately want to be on the river/beach front. We will definitely stay here again, especially if we score the great "stay 3 pay 2" deal that I found on their website.
Thankyou for your review Natasha we are certainly spoilt being in our desirable location and our pay 2 stay 3 deal is particularly attractive when staying that extra night is an option.
We look forward to your return when you next have the opportunity!
This appartment is located in a neigbourhood with lots of restaurants and shops. The bedroom was facing railway street which is really quiet. The size of the appartment is very big for two persons. Friendly people.
Thank you For taking the time to review Crown on Darby.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay we hope to see you back in the near future.
The location on Darby street is fantastic. For the price I expected to have our room serviced daily, no, only after 3 days! There was no plug for the bathroom sink so when I asked at reception I was told to leave the tap running! There is no bedside clock/radio.
Thank you for your review Walter however we have responded on the other sites that you have also left your review.
Crown on Darby is listed as serviced apartments with this being said we aim to keep our costs down in order to remain competitive in the Newcastle Market, we also find our regular guests prefer to be left alone somewhat while enjoying the sites Darby street has to offer therefore we only complete services every 3 days.
Crown on Darby staff are happy to supply guests with any additional amenities they should require.
Unfortunately due to safety reasons we have bathroom sinks that are designed never to have plugs this is something that was made into the design of the bathrooms so we cannot therefore change this.
In regards to clock radios we do have them but have found them to be un-useful and annoying as when you leave your apartment you take the room key from the power causing the clock radio to remain unset all of the time.
I hope we have answered all questions to the best of our ability and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
