Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smileypj Professional Friendly Staff at Crowne Plaza, Norwest
From the time we arrived at Crowne Plaza, Norwest nothing was too much trouble.
I really enjoyed their meals at the restaurant (breakfast and dinner) and even the quality carried through to their room service, which is hard to find these days!
The room was clean, neat and in perfect order. I could not complain about anything.
Thank you to the staff who assisted with the printing of my document too. It was much appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pbrock An excellent Crowne Plaza
I have stayed here on numerous occasions now, and it has never let me down. The rooms are spacious with good furnishings and a comfortable bed. The staff are always there to assist you, and constantly provide excellent customer service.

Staff were so helpful and friendly. They were knowledgable on transport and other questions we had. We needed an unexpected late check out and that was not a problem.
One improvement that could be looked into was the shower pressure. It was so strong it was painful on the skin. Most people complain about the lack of pressure but this was too much pressure. Breakfast was good with plenty of variety. Would stay again. Thank you

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lucie11 In general, staff are not friendly.
The receptionists, both check-in and check-out are not friendly and has no smile. The lightning in the room is not good. We have white lighting and the room does not look nice. Bathroom is simple and does not look like a hotel setting. Water tap is hard to control for a right temperature. There is no slippers in the room, not expected.
In the restaurant at breakfast, staff is not very polite when collecting the plates. Looks like they want you to finish and go. Poor manners too. All but one in the restaurant was nice on my visit.
Quite a disappointment visit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SNO2 Question that should not be asked
One night when I walked out of the restaurant after dinner, I was asked by a restaurant staff or a manager (I don't know who he was) "Did you pay?" This is not a proper question to ask to your customer. It was a shame because I enjoyed the dinner at the restaurant, but simply because of this question, I decided not to go back again during my stay.
It was also very inconvenient because the restaurant does not have lighter dishes and I was told to take room service if I want a lighter meal.
Hotel WiFi also needs to be improved.
Other than the above, my stay was comfortable and satisfactory. I really want to thank the gentleman who drove the shuttle to office everyday, making my business trip very convenient.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Meg306 No sleep in allowed!
Stayed for one night to go to a birthday party nearby. Used reward points and the room was fairly decent for a freebie. Wondered why I wasn't offered internet access as the new rewards program promised. Loved the fact that it was free parking and room service breakfast was good but it was all marred by housekeeping deciding that 10am was long enough for us to be there and entered our room - she said she knocked but we didn't hear it and the next thing we know a strange woman is coming through the door. She wanted to know when we were leaving - rude! My husband answered "11am at check out time". When we left the room the cleaner and the cart were actually waiting outside our door. Ruined an otherwise pleasant experience - no sleep in allowed here!

Hotel has a great staff who always ready to assist, however the room is far form being in the level of other Crown Plaza hotels where I have stayed
To start with the room was lack with drawers to put your close, there was a closet to hand your clothing but no drawer to put your folded clothing.
Moreover I had a SPA room which include quite a big bath, but calling to a room SPA room just because it include a big bath, is hardly suitable
Food was quite fair

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ManjuBP Exceptional service!
We checked in 3 hours early than our check in time and asked if we can do the check in now. The front desk staff were very courteous and offered us to check in straight away! After looking into the system for our booking, they found that the room was getting prepared. But they instantly offered us to upgrade to Twin double room.
The buffet breakfast was excellent with fresh and cooked food with so much variety to choose from! We loved it.
I recommend other travellers to use Crown Plaza Norwest. It is value for money.
will stay here during my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy2Travel Very comfortable room and excellent service
We always enjoy our stay at Crowne Plaza Norwest - It is our 'go to' place to stay in the area, especially as it is close to family and friends in Baulkham Hills, Cherrybrook and West Ryde. It is easy to get to coming from Canberra and well located when heading north to Newcastle, Hunter Valley and the Central Coast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rochy52 Great hotel, poor breakfast service!
This hotel is well located close to all amenities with quality rooms at competitive rates but the staff prevent this hotel from being outstanding. Having stayed at this hotel over many years the quality of service has never improved, particularly in the Restaurant with very poor attention and caring... don't bother complaining, they will thank you but do nothing!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mridu Dirty Dishes and Rude Reception
At breakfast, found many dirty dishes and bread toast machine not properly installed. Also, the menu wasn't too good.
At online booking I asked for kids extra bed, and the rate for only adults was lower and when I added the kids it came higher. On check-in the extra bed was only given in one room. On request one more bed was provided. But at checkout I was charged for one bed for 4 days. Doesn't make sense.
Also being gold member I always get complimentary water in rooms, while on checkout I was charged for bottles in one room.
On discussing this matter with reception, I found the manager to be very rude and not at all fit for customer service.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by smithy bad experience
I stayed in the hotel from 27-11-12 checked out 30-11-12, on thursday evening myself and 8 of my colleuges decided to stay at the hotel for a evening meal , we had drinks at the bar then approached a woman staff member Felicity, we could not believe her attitude she said go and wait in the bar and she would make up a table, 25 mins later we had to approach her and ask if our table was ready, it was, she then proceeded to practilly throw the napkins onto our lap, her attitude toward us was to say the least arrogant and rude, this is not the first instance of this occuring at this hotel and in fact this is the reason we do not normally eat in house, the worst thing is that one rotten apple taints all the other good and helpful people that work in the hotel

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kristie83 Comfortable Bed but lacking Warmth
The room was comfortable, Bed was Amazing!!! the Breakfast while pricey was a god send and a great selection of foods
Staff were cold on entry as i was not made aware of the room deposit on any of my many phone calls to the hotel to double check and fix my booking. and therefore was a little shocked about what seemed like an silly charge when i had paid everything before arrival and then the staff made it feel like i would be declined to stay as i didn't have a credit card on arrival and she had to " get managers approval" to see what could be done with my reservation!!!

This is my sixth stay here and I keep coming back because of the lovely service and the comfort away from home. The bed & pillows are very comfortable and I never have any problem sleeping. The plenty of and free parking is a saving and the food is all good. Breakfast is a well catered buffet with something for everyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SuperHoopsFan Great Location but awfully noisy air con in room
This hotel is perfect for exploring the Sydney area, especially the Blue Mountains. It is also just 20 mins drive from Parramatta where you can get the train or ferry to Circular Quay.
There are a variety of shopping Malls within a 5 - 20 min drive.
The rooms are clean, the staff really good and the area is safe. In fact the staff were more than good, they were excellent.
The quality of food at breakfast is very good but the menu never changed in the 4 nights we stayed. It was very repetitive. Why cant they change just one item every day? The hot food was scrambled eggs, English or American bacon, hash browns, bean, mushrooms, rice and Eggs Benedict. During the week an egg chef was available too. There was also fruits, yoghurts and assorted breads.
Don't get me wrong, I love eggs and bacon - the full monty - but to have exactly the same items available every single day strikes me as a lazy way to operate. I would suggest the management t change one item every day.
But the one thing that really disappointed was the awfully noisy AC in the room which ruined a few of our nights. It was like a truck rumbling through the room and every time the AC cut in and out there was a loud clunck. The fridge too was noisy. Not acceptable for a 4 star hotel but then again I had a similar experience at a new Holiday Inn in Thailand earlier this year. So maybe its an idiosyncrasy of all new(ish) ICH hotels that the AC is overly noisy?
Would I stay again. Yes I would but I would bring earplugs and only have breakfast at the hotel once every 3 days, eating outside - even at McDonalds - to add a bit of variety
