Very disappointing experience to find we had booked a room within a couple of metres of a 4 lane road and traffic noise was horrendous. The rooms air conditioner did not work and despite reporting it twice to staff it appeared incomprehensible to them that our room was hotter than standing on the footpath outside. Because of the noise we... More

We stayed here twice, on the way to Queensland and on the way home. The staff were incredibly accommodating of our need to cancel one night on our way home due to a family emergency which we are extremely grateful for. The motel itself is also fantastic. We had ground floor rooms and were able to spend some time outside... More

We had previously made the booking by telephone. Very little hassle at the counter and was given the room keys. The room was clean and fresh. Linen and towels looked very clean. Not very close the main city but in a quiet area. Although on main road, not much traffic noise. Free parking in front of the room. Ample parking... More

Stayed only a couple of nights for a short weekend visit. I can definitely recommend this place. Lovely spacious and clean rooms. Really quick and efficient check in and helpful staff. We will definitely come back and stay when we come and visit Port Macquarie again (just hope for better weather next time!)

The motel was very easy to reach off the highway. It was also handy to Port Macquarie town centre. This is a typical Best Western in terms of the quality of the facility. The room as clean and comfortable. The host was very friendly and welcoming. The small restaurant had good food and the service was typical of Australian hospitality... More

On the main road into Port Macquarie, so can be noisy at rush hour - but clean, bright rooms, with large bathroom. No lift, so if you have a large suitcase, or can't manage stairs, ask for a ground floor room. Some of these are set back further off the road, so a bit quieter! Well equipped and comfortable

Only been here an hour and the friendly attitude of the staff and cleanliness of the room along with location is very good. I'm sure our next two nights are going to be a great weekend away. So excited and being at this particular place with its overall feel is much appreciated

My wife and I stayed in this hotel recently for one night en route to Sydney. Whilst I prefer hotels where the rooms are connected to reception and the restaurant and bar service areas via undercover walkways the room was clean, and adequate for our stay. Unfortunately we stayed on a Saturday and arrived around 7:30 pm only to find... More

We had a family room good size rooms very clean children had separate room with television. Only 5 mins from town centre and there is a small shopping centre 5 mins walk with everything you need. Even though you are on a busy road the rooms were very quite. Would stay again and price was very reasonable for a family
