The Lovedale Bar is our popular and versatile dining space with wide appeal. It’s a bar. A restaurant. And it has the Lovedale Brewery and Distillery right next door. It’s a place where tantalising meals are made, where the drinks run cold and where conversations just flow.

Absolutely loved the hunter valley, however we found the Crown Plaza over priced for what we received, the rooms were not the cleanest and the food and drinks were way too dear.

It’s convenient location and pizza was nice especially the veg one but the meat meals were not that good. People on our table complained. Calamari was also nice and the pastas. Chips wedges also good.

Given it was a busy time, ANZAC Day, the service was great, food good and all the staff friendly and helpful. Our party of 17 was well looked after and we hope to arrange further gatherings in the future.

I’m sad to write such a bad review but I was really disappointed with the food and bad smell in the restaurant on Saturday night. We had a table of 13 and no one was happy with their meals either it being cold, not right (the squid entree coming out appearing to be frozen calamari rings), expensive and poorly put together. I personally had the Greek salad and found it very disappointing and not nice to eat.
Our stay at Crown Plaza on the other hand was lovely and we really enjoyed our accomodation and deals with reception staff.
Sorry again but hopefully this feedback helps.
Regards,
Hannah

Need to seperate hotel pool guests from lunch bookings, difficult to have a conversation due to noise.

Clean, spacious, long bar with quick service there and taking of food orders. We were a party of 10, placed order at 12:15 and food wasn't ready until 1:00pm. I realise there were 10 covers, but, what would have been the wait if order placed at busy time on a Sunday - say 12:45?
Some outdoor seating but pool as well so care required. Large games room for children but can't be seen from dining area so defeats the purpose in my opinion so our 4 had to stay with us all the way through the meal.
Good for a casual meal or beer after golf although not cheap.

Had a large group booked here. Food was great, good value. There was a long wait for food but we were told the wait time when we ordered so it was no problem and appreciated the good communication. Staff were friendly and the service good.
