    Crown on Darby was conveniently located in Newcastle trendy dining street. Service and check in /out was painless and quick. Lots of places to eat for dinner and coffee/breakfast. Underground parking was extra and required in the tight neighborhood. Good value if you dont need full service hotel. Paid around 105.

    So many restaurants close by, friendly staff, great location

    Pleasent stay, cant fault the hotel but if i had to, my major drawcard was the spa and airport shuttle, when i arrived the staff were kind enough to upgrade my room to the one bedroom apartment, which sadly just contains a shower and no spa bath, the staff also were very kind n helpfull, but couldnt manage to organise an airport shuttle for 7am, so in turn i paid out seventy five for a taxi to the airport,

    Great stay”

    I live locally and I very much enjoyed my stay here! The staff were so friendly and helpful, we noticed our spa wasn’t working, we rang reception and they sent the maintenance man up right away! Loved the little balcony outside area and thought the room was very spacious for us both! We both enjoyed the beds 10/10 would really love to know where you got your pillows from PLEASE, I haven’t had a good night sleep like that EVER! The location is so close to everything! We were out both nights at the lovely restaurants right across the road or just next to our apartment! I woke up in the morning and couldn’t believe how quiet and silent it was for Darby street! One thing I can fault though is the random piece of non see through glass that leads from the outside balcony into our bathroom that caused unnecessary light, we had the bathroom door shut to minimise the light but because there are no curtains for the inside doors the light shines through but other than that, I’d stay here again!!

    Everything about Crown on Darby was great! The location is excellent lots of different choices for food and the atmosphere is really nice. The 1 bedroom spa apartment we had was really spacious and awesome and the bed was super comfy! The staff were really lovely and friendly and there was even insure parking for $15 which was a bonus. It's only 10 mins to Hunter St and the Marina and the beach is just up the road so the location really is great! I would absolutely recommend I stay here to anyone visiting Newcastle we loved it!

    Not ideal if you're looking for a sleep in”

    The place is great, would be perfect if not for the street noise (garbage collection at the crack of dawn - so loud) and the bedroom windows had shutters that did not block out daylight so it was really hard to get back to sleep. The living area was in total darkness but the bedroom was light and bright, not ideal if you don't want to wake up at dawn.

    Long weekend to attend a wedding in Newcastle”

    We were given a personal phone call to confirm our booking then sent a message re car parking facility and details on the morning of the day we were first booked in. Ease of booking in and access from carpark to the hotel was appreciated. Our room was an excellent size and we appreciated having a separate bedroom and an area to lounge in.with cooking facitlities and outside balcony and table seating. The only issue of concern was the bed linen appeared to be flat and lacked both freshness and crispness and there was also a distinct odor of cigarette smoke residue on the furniture which abated with regular use of the air conditioner. As an Allergy sufferer this was a concern and was again observed when passing a staff member and in the lift..
