    Staff were extremely friendly and accomodating.

    Bathroom was old - cracked tiles etc..Too expensive

  • Older travelers

    The room was smallish but very clean and comfortable.

    The carpark was a 5 minute walk from the hotel, the directions given in the carpark to get to the hotel were inaccurate as they left you loitering in a building foyer area which was closed. Many other hotels and motels offer free internet, but the Crowne Plaza does not.

    Location

    There was a mix up with my booking and I got a twin room instead of a queen size. I was told there was nothing they could do and they offered me a free morning paper which I never received.

  • Family with children

    hotel should have more luxury such as covered heated swimming pool and spa.

  • Couple
    5.4

    The bathroom was too small and the shower wasn't very good

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The location and the wonderful view from room 901. Staff were terrific and lovely to be provided with a room upgrade on our arrival. Valet parking service much appreciated.

    The table in the room 901 is very unsteady

  • Single
    7.8

    Very, very helpful and friendly staff, particularly in reception when I requested a room change away from the service elevator. The housekeeper on my floor was also very pleasant when I passed her in the hallway.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The bed and pillows, cleanliness, staff, great coffee, breakfast, in fact, my husband and I loved everything about the crowne plaza, thank you very much warm regards varina & samir taguine

    I didnt know we had to pay for the goodies in the fridge and the snacks I could have been informed. The car park at wilsons parking from the 4-6 october 2012 I was annoyed at paying $80

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Good location with beautiful view over the Yarra river. Friendly and obliging staff.

    Disappointed that we were charged 1.5% of our bill for using a credit card. This hasn't happened before and we feel that as we have no choice, this cost should be included in the quoted price.
