    We had a fantastic stay - AND i must say finding a proper hairdryer in the room was a big plus!!

    Very good

    Staff very friendly and most helpful.

    Had to call the staff twice to fix the TV and to fix the bath. This was disappointing given the cost of the rooms.

    The hotel is excellent. Very upmarket and spotlessly clean. The staff were all extremely professional, courteous and nothing was too much trouble to ensure our stay was comfortable and pleasant.

    That the wi-fi services incur a cost. Considering that most places we have stayed in the past include this as part of the room rate, I would expect that wi- fi services are free, or at the very least, partly free up tp a certain percentage of data used.

    The gym and breaKFAST

    Gave me the wrong room with single beds instead of queen bed, no ocean view and balcony that I paid for, not allowed to see where they parked your car. Wrong newspaper in the morning. Some staff were not intersted in what I had to say , they kept saying it was a full house.

    Superb

    The location was so lovely and close to all that the Honeysuckle area has to offer. The room was very nice, as it was on the ground floor we had a virtual court yard (one we could see but couldn't go into) and it made our room feel like a relaxation spa.

    I mentioned to the hotel manager that these days hotels should include skinny milk in the mini bar. And also that my breakfast on the day was unejoyable nearly inedible. I should have gone with the fresh made omelets rather than the temptation of eggs benedict.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location by the harbourside and near the city centre. Very good facillities except see below

    The room was advertised as having a kitchenette. This consisted of a sink and a tea towel. No cooking facillities, utensils. Lots of empty cupboard space and drawers but nothing in them beyond a kettle, mugas and a few glasses.

    The Crown has a fabulous location

    the parking is a problem. We would also liked to have seen a top sheet on our bed as it was quite warm and there was only a quilt and blankets.

    Great food, location and friendly professional staff.

    Expensive unless you get a discounted rate. There is limited accommodation in Newcastle.

    Very good

    Loved the location. The view of the working harbour was amazing could sit there for days watching The staff were friendly and polite but seemed a little stressed. Breakfast was yum' Had a great stay and would come again

    The bed sloped to the middle so wasn't very comfortable and the pillows were too soft for my liking

    Fabulous

    Nice pleasant atmosphere. Plenty of shops and restaurants in walking distance. Great for a weekend of just relaxing.

    If I had a small complaint it would be the 28 dollars a day to have you car parked. No parking available. At the price of the rooms I think it should be included.

    Excellent facilities. Beautiful room. professional staff.

    This is the choice i had for parking after arriving late evening to an area i didn't know. 1. Valet Parking $28/ day. (You cannot park the car yourself in their carpark.) 2. Park in a side street somewhere nearby !!
