Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Spent a night here while touring the Hunter. The rooms were large and well furnished but their room service was pathetic or almost in-existent. With the invoice restaurant being quite a walk away, I thought they could do a better job. We were pleased with our experience at the restaurant though. We had a few vegan guests with us and they customized dishes to keep them happy. I had a steak and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Review:   Had a lot of fun at a recent themed event at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. They decorated the room beautifully, seating was comfortable and food was good and plentiful (for an event of a couple hundred). Event staff were professional and helpful, and assisted with keeping the theme. Cocktails were enjoyable. There were a couple of minor things I would have liked to go differently with the event, and the dancefloor was a bit small. Also my group found it a little hard to find the right place to go for the event but eventually found our way in. Overall a great night!

Review:   A place that worth visiting again, whether you are going with friends or family, you will definitely enjoy it. The staff are extremely welcoming, and will help you to enjoy and relax as much as possible. Didn't try the swimming pool this time, but most probably the next time. The only thing is about the wifi connection, could not connect at all, but this is a minor issue and would be solved if the customers service were contacted.

Review:   Rooms were modern, clean and beautiful. Facilities were top notch. Breakfast bar was above average, and the pub downstairs was fairly decent. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone else thinking of staying in the hunter.
