Stayed at plenty of hotels for business travel. In 2015 no free wifi in the Hunter is silly. Cessnock CBD has free wifi in town 5 minutes away. You really should catch up with the rest of the world for such a large chain hotel. I will not be back for this one reason. The staff and everything else was...

Loved this region. This hotel matched our expectations. We shared a villa between 4 of us which worked very well. Staff were great from check in until check out. Our shower was a little slow in warming up but didnt need to wait long. We also ate on-site as hadnt arranged anything due to our unexpected late arrival (thanks Jetstar!)...

Rooms were nice (although one bedside table to share between two queen size beds??) and lovely bathroom with big bath tub. Breakfast was excellent and the service could not be faulted. Lots of activities to do and places to sit and relax with a drink. We enjoyed our stay here and would come back again.

My room was clean and modern with the usual conveniences. The bed was super comfortable which was a bonus after a long day travelling. Staff were friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in my stay. Would be a good place to stay for a weekend in the hunter, if that's you ting. Only a 50 minute drive from Newcatsle...

Arrived to find the pre paid booking we had made had not been changed in the system so we did not have a room. This could have been a major fail as we were on a nice weekend away without the kids. Luckily the manager jumped in and saved the day, quickly rectifying the error and fixing us up a...

I'm absolutely impressed by the Crown Plaza, Hunter Valley. We gathered here with a group of past colleagues for a reunion and this was the perfect venue. Rooms are modern and clean.

Stayed in a villa which on check-in was upgraded from a 2 to a 3 bedroom. Clean, spacious and a homely feel. Everything you would need. Great place for kids with an outdoor chess set to play, a mini train taking kids for rides, carousel, and battery operated cars for kids to ride for $5 in main foyer of establishment....

We, a group of four girls had a two bedroom villa at the Crown Plaza, the rooms were lovely. Just what the girls needed for a weekend away. We booked a few months in advance and between four of us it was quite resonable. We hardly spent any time in the villa, but everyone said their beds were really comfortable....

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa which was large and spacious with good amenities and once you got used to the overwhelming bleach smell each time you entered the room, it was neat and clean and comfortable.
