Usually stay at the Crowne Plaza, Coogee - a favourite but was unsure of what to expect. My impression was very favourable. Staff members were friendly and helpful. My harbour view room included a separate lounge area, the bathroom was large and toiletries were classy. The view gave me a new understanding of what Newcastle has to offer. And the...

So close to the water, it's divine, restaurants 15 meters away, and the in house breakfast is worth it, the free wifi is a great complimentary bonus, the staff here are so friendly I feel like I've known them all for years, house keeping was top standard, and having the chance to hire a bike at the front door is...

Crowne Plaza is located on the river with easy access to walk to many eateries along the promenade. The breakfast was delicious and had lots of variety. All of the staff went above and beyond and they are the hotel's greatest asset. Just a warning re the gym. It is fantastic but I injured myself due to an over zealous...

We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is located in a fantastic location with easy access to restaurants, ferry to Stockton and great walking/running areas along the waterfront. The rooms were extremely quiet, even when directly above the waterfront. Great check in/out staff. Rooms were very clean, with great amenities.

My wife & I stayed at the Crown Friday 10th March for our wedding anniversary. We had planned on having dinner at one of the nearby restaurants. All the staff were extremely pleasant & professional. We ended up dining at Seasalt, the Crown restaurant. The meal was faultless. I would rate The Crown Newcastle 5 Star in all areas. Thanks...

This hotel never fails to deliver. Up to the usual Crowne Plaza standard service and facilities are ideal for a business function. Accomodation is comfortable and the restaurant is also above average. Only fault I could raise is the lack of recognition by staff for IHG status.

Just a quick stop on our trip but it was worth it. Harbour view room, valet parking and professional, courteous staff. The room was spacious and the in-suite jet tub was divine. Conveniently located next to pubs & bars from the street sounds when we checked in. Right on the harbour walking path which just beckons you to explore Newcastle.

One night stay on a business trip. Due to late arrival, I ordered room service which was very nice. Room was large and comfortable. Location is perfect for a morning stroll along the water, and not too long a walk to beaches and parks on the foreshore. Also an easy walk into the office in the centre of Newcastle.

Got a harbour view suite on level 1, which was a shame because the trees hinder half the view. We were only staying for the night and wasn't intending on spending too much time in the room so it was OK. Location-wise it's on the harbour foreshore and very conveniently located. Breakfast had variety and of decent quality. Staff is...
