Stayed here overnight in a two bedroom apartment. The decor is very last year and walls are quite scuffed. Some surfaces were a bit dusty such as the coffee table and side lamp tables. Facilities were good and location central. Included in our rate was a car park. Parking on street is free after 1230pm on Saturday and free on...

Then just go to Rydges! Food great, entertainment great. A large very comfortable bedroom with all mod. coms. Located by the water with safe parking and friendly and helpful staff. We were just "overnighting", arrived tired and found everything we needed; perfect!

It's funny but sometimes one's impression of a place can be totally subjective. When I stayed there in 2010 I had a bit of a disastrous time - no fault of the hotel, I misplaced the rental car keys and ended up stranded an extra day. As they say all's well that ends well. I found the keys and made...

Hey Terry F, Great to read that this stay you enjoyed so much better. Pleased to read you were impressed with the restaurant and water views. Ah yes- the birds! They are rainbow lorikeets that live near the water by the hotel. Hopefully we'll see you again for a third visit soon! Cheers, Rydges Port Macquarie

For a spur of the moment night away we chose Rydges for its great location. We booked a superior King suite with a balcony online the day before we arrived. We arrived earlier than expected and we're delighted to access our room right away. The views! Wow! We looked out over the pool and straight up the river, simply amazing....

We have done many trips along the East Coast and are usually heading somewhere else, but always stop at Port Macquarie Rydges, so it has become somewhat of a tradition. We try and get the same room every time and reflect on how much we have achieved since our last time there. The staff are always super friendly and helpful...

Room was very generous in size and had all the amenities that you need. Perfect location as it is the the middle of town and walking distance to all cafes, shopping, etc. breakfast in the hotel was lovely whilst enjoying watching the Dolphins swim by. Will definitely stay agai, although hopefully will have a view next time.

What a beautiful hotel to stay at. Sitting right on the river with stunning views from our Deluxe King suite. The room was huge and the bathroom as big as a lot of bedrooms. The decor beautifully suited to the ocean location. The staff were professional and nothing was too much trouble. In the morning we woke to find a...
