We stayed for one night in a twin room, corner room overlooking the water. Absolutely beautiful. Great location, walk to pretty much everything. Food in the bar/grill was lovely. Staff we extremely helpful. We have stayed once before and this second stay has confirmed that each time we visit Port Macquarie we will definitely be staying here.

We only stayed one night in the King Premier Room. Our view onto the esplanade was beautiful. The room was super large, the king bed is super comfy, the washroom was clean and the staff were helpful and nice. The pool looked inviting but we didn't have enough time to enjoy it. The only minor negative was when flushing the...

This hotel is located right by the Hastings River. On a sunny day it is just beautiful. Dolphins frolicking by the edge and fruit bats flying overhead at dusk. The showers are very good and the rooms are comfortable, but in need of some decor updating. My only complaint is the very expensive price for a new release movie hire......

Fabulous experience. Literally the best shower in the world! Bar and Grill was excellent, included 20% discount for members (free to join). Secure underground parking for $10, Lift to all floors. Choice of City or ocean views. Fantastic. This will be our "port of call" for every trip Sydney to Brisbane. Kathryn on the desk was outstanding.

A great little get away for the weekend. Hotel room was very nice, awesome views of the water. Check in staff were very helpful and so were the restaurant staff. A nice surprise was the port Macquarie fun run which was running right outside the hotel on Sunday morning.
