    We are from Sydney but had to attend a funeral in Newcastle. So we decided to stay here for the weekend. The Crowne Plaza was a lovely place to stay at. We even hosted a family dinner after the funeral at the hotel restaurant, and the food was amazing. They really turned a bad situation into a pleasant stay. Great Location, amazing staff & clean rooms.

The hotel is located right on the river and it's very close to the train station, but also quiet. The room was clean, well maintained and very modern. Having a separate bedroom gives a lot more space making it comfortable for long stays. I'm already planning my next trip back again, highly recommend the hotel and the area.

    Rydges is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. There was a wide range of reasturants to choose from all within walking distance. The waterfront is amazing and it was a pleasure to spend a couple of days at this location. The staff were extremely helpful and enthusiastic about their roles. My only disappointment was the cost of valet parking which at $29/night was astonishing!

    I stayed for one night at the Rydges Newcastle. Overall my stay was good, I’m not sure I agree with a 4.5 star hotel rating though I expect a little more for that rating but it could just be that I was in a older room. Friendly staff, quick & easy check in/check out and comfortable spacious room. Unfortunately it was raining for most of the night and I was in room 104 so on the first floor and my bed was right next to a tin/metal roof and the noise was LOUD! Sounded like ppl where running all over it - I know this is not something that can be fixed but I had one of the worst night sleeps I’ve had in a long time. More upsetting for me as this was my 1st night away from my kids so was hoping for a nice uninterrupted sleep & a sleep in. So my advise is if it’s going to rain ask for a room on a higher floor.

    Shower is really bad needs to be updated . Apart from that , breakfast is good and location is very good. room is nice too. I've booked two nights over 600 and pay at the hotel deal , but at the end they charged me way over price than what I booked through Agoda. Their explanation was , rate changes day to day so the price goes up is normal . Not satisfied. It's better just book through Agoda and don't book any hotels that has " Pay at the hotel " Option.

    Good location”

    The hotel is fine, what you'd expect. Everything is clean and well kept. Parking wasn't an issue either (we parked outside the hotel). We had issues on check-in as the name on Agoda didn't match the credit card, so fortunately the manager stepped in (with initiative) so we didn't have to cancel the original booking and rebook again via Agoda while standing at the front desk. Checkout was a bit different. The guy insisted our reservation excluded ($30 each) breakfast I was sure it did. Unfortunately, I could not verify as this time I did not print out the Agoda booking, but the website on the day suggested he was correct. He checkout guy just stood there and did not make any attempt to be helpful, so we paid full price for 2. Later I saw the price per breakfast on the hotel website at 1/2 of what we paid. so I felt he could have met us half way. By the way I am writing this review about 3 months later ....so it stays with me. But the breakfast was great!

    It was a bit dearer than I would like to have spent but I was glad I did. The location could not have been better. Had a room looking out over the river and it was fantastic to be so close to the boats coming and going at night time. Right on the boardwalk we had our pick of great bars and restaurants all just a stroll away. I would definitely recommend....the car parking is too expensive though at $29/day I chose to park on the street

You can hear the boats a little bit but it didn't bother us. The hotel is right near good restaurants and if you have questions the host at to entrance is extremely friendly.

    bathroom needs to be updated”

    Shower is really bad needs to be updated . Apart from that , breakfast is good and location is very good. room is nice too. I've booked two nights over 600 and pay at the hotel deal , but at the end they charged me way over price than what I booked through Agoda. Their explanation was , rate changes day to day so the price goes up is normal . Not satisfied. It's better just book through Agoda and don't book any hotels that has " Pay at the hotel " Option.

    Good location”

    The hotel is fine, what you'd expect. Everything is clean and well kept. Parking wasn't an issue either (we parked outside the hotel). We had issues on check-in as the name on Agoda didn't match the credit card, so fortunately the manager stepped in (with initiative) so we didn't have to cancel the original booking and rebook again via Agoda while standing at the front desk. Checkout was a bit different. The guy insisted our reservation excluded ($30 each) breakfast I was sure it did. Unfortunately, I could not verify as this time I did not print out the Agoda booking, but the website on the day suggested he was correct. He checkout guy just stood there and did not make any attempt to be helpful, so we paid full price for 2. Later I saw the price per breakfast on the hotel website at 1/2 of what we paid. so I felt he could have met us half way. By the way I am writing this review about 3 months later ....so it stays with me. But the breakfast was great!

    Great spot to watch the sailing boats enter and leave the harbour. The staff were super fast to respond to a small issue in the room and provide a solution. My partner suggested that it was the best hotel breakfast she has ever had. Pretty good praise from someone who has travelled globally.

    Best location in Newcastle”

    It was a bit dearer than I would like to have spent but I was glad I did. The location could not have been better. Had a room looking out over the river and it was fantastic to be so close to the boats coming and going at night time. Right on the boardwalk we had our pick of great bars and restaurants all just a stroll away. I would definitely recommend....the car parking is too expensive though at $29/day I chose to park on the street

    mattress and toilet curtain need clean”

    great location, good view, friendly staff

    booked two room, the toilet curtain in one room has very stain smell. the bed line is clean, but feel bit different when sleep on it. Overall the location and view are great, and the room size are quite big enough for little kids to walk around. will consider to stay again and recommend to friends.

    Location comfort

    Have stayed here many times and really enjoy it. Great location with the promenade boardwalk all the way to the beach. Many restaurants around on the wharf although many closed on Mondays. Pay the extra for the harbour so you can watch the harbour life go by. Great pool for those hot days

    Friendliness and location

    I looooooved the location - so interesting to be looking at a working industrial harbour - looooooong corridor which made me wish for a Segway - staff were so genuine and friendly. Newcastle is a well kept secret - super interesting and locals were proud of their town and happy to chat.

    location. staff. room

    I came for a one night stay after a sports event. I had my car valet parked for me by very friendly staff and stayed at a room with a water view. You can hear the boats a little bit but it didn't bother us. The hotel is right near good restaurants and if you have questions the host at to entrance is extremely friendly. I enjoyed my stay and will probably stay here again on my next Newcastle trip.

    Very central location walking distance to a variety of bars and restaurants swimming pool harbourside

    Loved our stay harbour view room definitely worth the extra to be able to watch all the action on the water. We found lovely restaurants nearby and everything else we could need. Great for long walks along the promenade which goes all the way to Nobbys beach
