Strangely after living in Newcastle for 6 years and visiting there for another 10 off and on, I'd never stayed at the Crowne. I have stayed and other Crowne properties in Australia and Crowne
Newcastle meets all the expectations.
I clearly stayed in the room set up for those with mobility challenges, ground floor, big room and large bathroom with a walk in shower.
Overall it was great, especially the location and veiw across the harbour.
There were some minor niggles. A little bit of noise, being that close to the lifts, people tend to congregate and talk.
The other being the reception on the TV in the sitting area was terrible, just had to sit up in bed, no real issue.
There is no onsite parking, the valet parking is well run, but with a lot of business people checking out and heading off at the same time in the morning there can be some minor (matter of minutes# delay..
An interesting aspect to a harbour side room. The ship leaving at 0630, woke me #around my start to the day anyway) with a nice long blast of its horn.
I'll be heading back on my next trip. [Less]
