    Rydges Newcastle (formerly Crowne Plaza Newcastle), Newcastle
    Exceptional10.0
    Fantastic hotel, exclamation point!
    Simply put: a fantastic property, incredible staff, and a breakfast option to grab if staying a few nights. Park at an adjacent lot for $8 per day and walk all over this charming town. The climb to the obelisk is worth the view and the leg workout. The WW1 memorial walkway is out of this world. First rate experience town and hotel. Cannot wait to come back!

    Awesome staff and location
    The hotel location was great but what makes this hotel great was the staff - they were so friendly and helpful. Plus the breakfast buffet was very good.

    Good6.0
    Check-in was slow and they struggled to find second room made in the same booking. Was told that no second room and the hotel was full. Another staff member found the second room - both booked at the same time!

    We really enjoyed the room that was clean and comfortable. The location was great just at the waterfront, and the pool area is very relaxing.
