The Crowne Plaza Hotel Hunter Valley is the perfect base from which to explore the Brokenback Mountains on horseback. The concierge will arrange transport to the local wineries of Tyrrell, Waverly, Brokenwood, Pepper Tree or Petersons so that you can sample as much of the local wines without the concern of driving. Have a golf lesson with the PGA pro at Hunter Valley Golf Club and gain some tips before you take to the course.

Excellent Family Holiday

This is a great hotel for families. Excellent facilities for all including 18 hole golf course and a fantastic pool for swimmers at all stages. We also love the Kids Club and so does our daughter. She had a lot of fun and even booked herself into the movie night. We had such an enjoyable stay that we booked an extra night - we didn't want to leave!

Good times with wine

We stayed just before xmas in 2014. We found there were lots of families and kids in the swimming area. The villas are fabulous for groups of friends or families. Go to wollies and cook and drink your wine in your villa! Hotel dinning is good also. We used the hotel shuttle to go to dinner at the Irish pub down the road. It was a free service the hotel provided - tick tick The air con is a must in summer. Great location and we will be returning.

Good place to be

We were there 4 years ago, but this time, we feel the hotel is getting old, especially the cooking top is very old and slow, fridge is quite small. Compare to some new but not so famous hotel, this villa is a little smaller. But the staffs are very nice and the pool is perfect. we definately will go again when it is not so expensive.

Fantastic exciting hotel stay!

Epic holiday experience! Great comps for the kids with some prizes to be won! Close to heaps of attracting attractions, including Hunter Valley Gardens. You just can't finish exploring this hotel in 2 days, with a high quality restaurant and bistro! While you sit back and relax, the kids can go down for a swim or play tennis. Recreational activities such as table tennis and pool are near the poolside too! Had a wonderful experience!

A pleasant stay

This is my third stay at the Crowne Plaza in Hunter Valley. The rooms are always clean and the staff are friendly. It is a good place to stay if you are in the area for a wedding as it allows you to stay for one night rather than regulating a two night minimum. We stayed for the Lovedale Long Lunch this time around, and it was a convenient location for the bus pick up. The new bar area downstairs is also convenient if you do not want to venture out of an evening. I'll definitely be back again.

Real comfort, friendly staff

Very good experience with the Hotel. Good size room and very kind & friendly hotel staff. I will Defiantly recommend for families & couples. A bit of disappointment at Hotel's 1st floor restaurant as it required prior booking and ground floor pub / Italian restaurant required long waiting time to serve pizza so be prepare for these things. As there are not many restaurants near by. However, you should try the pizza at ground floor menu its worth it.
