Reviewed 22 January 2016

Stayed in a 2 Singles Harbourside at the Crown Plaza overlooking Newcastle Harbour, great view, quiet location, with a separate sitting room complete with tv and another tv in the bedroom. Pool facilities clean and pleasant .The staff were all friendly, courteous and helpful. We live in Newcastle and will definitely stay again as the location is perfect.

I booked over the phone directly and it was a very easy experience. On arrival, everything, from the valet, to check-in, to room quality was as we would want. We were on the 2nd floor with adjoining rooms for a family of 3 adults and 2 children for 2 nights. Although it was school holidays, there weren't too many kids...
