The mini holiday was such a blessing. The food was amazing, the bath tub was a spa and every time I would go for a walk in the park Id come back to a clean room, fresh sheets and towels.
The other great thing was that I could entertain people at the BAR of the hotel 😁🎉
And when I had enough just go back to my room.
It was seriously awesome. I'd consider having another child just for the hotel stay 😂
We are with health.com.au and they covered the stay at Crown Plaza Newcastle.
OMG it was bliss. The food was amazing. The bed was great. DH and DD were able to stay aswell. It was a great transition.
You can stay at Crowne plaza if it's your first bub, and even if you've had a cesarean section. Like the others have said, the appeal is that your still getting care and help by midwives whenever you need it, the food is fabulous and comes when you want it, rather than having food turn up at the time that suits a hospital schedule. The meals are huge and can easily be shared with your family. Rooms are heaps bigger, with a 'Loungeroom' so when visitors come it's away from your bed. There's a fold out lounge for the kids to sleep on. View is lovely. It's a great way to bond with your new little family without having to tidy up, do washing, cook etc. you can go downstairs and meet up with family and friends for a coffee, and then leave when you want. If your kids stay they can swim in the pool and scooter along the harbour, which is much more enjoyable than just visiting a hospital room with emergancy buttons to press lol! Beds are heavenly, with no plastic hospital sheets on them. I honestly can't understand why everyone wouldn't want to do it!
