Had a 4 day work conference here and it was wonderful. The staff are lovely and friendly, the accomodation in a 3 bedroom villa was spacious and the property was spectacular! Food served was fantastic!

We had booked a two-bedroom "villa" at Crowne Plaza. We were assigned to the ground floor of a two-story property on the grounds. The two bedrooms and lounge/dining/kitchenette were adequate although on the tired side. We booked two nights - Friday and Saturday. It was the Jazz in the Vines weekend and all the hotels jacked up their rates. We... More

The hotel's best asset is its swimming pool. The breakfast was great but over priced for the class of hotel. The food at dinner was also great. The staff are all very nice too.

Great location, public areas are pleasant. But it's tired, and it's time for a refurb. And no wonder, with the number of people that come through here.

The hotel had good service, friendly staff; however the rooms had a musty, damp smell to it. They provide you with an essential oils room spray which was definitely essential for the room.
