Crowne Plaza, Norwest, Sydney, Australia

We were in Sydney to attend a training course at our office in West Pennant Hills and the Crowne Plaza in Baulkham Hills was the closest hotel. It is probably 30 to 45 minutes from the Sydney CBD on a good day.

The hotel was your typical Crowne Plaza, not a 5-star hotel, but it wasn’t bad either. I guess I’m saying that it was clean and functional. Though its showing its age if you look close enough.

The bed was nice but I found the pillows to be  far too soft and I didn’t have a decent sleep while I was here.

I had a couple of room service dinners during the week as I couldn’t be bothered venturing out to find somewhere else to eat. The Beef Burger and Club Sandwich were exceptionally good as hotel room service food goes, and the Creme Brulee and Tiramisu desserts were right up there also.
