We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. As we had a bit of luggage they moved us to a ground floor room no problem. The room was large, clean and recently renovated. We also loved the pool area. The view from the restaurant was lovely and the breakfast was outstanding.

We stayed here a few days ago and it was a really lovely comfortable night! This time it has been another really lovely comfortable night with a really nice dinner and a lovely fresh and satisfying breakfast. The staff are welcoming and we both feel this is a good place to come back to.

We were only able to stay one night on our way through to Coffs. The staff were friendly even though we arrived late in the evening. The room was beautiful and modern. The pool area looked fantastic, but we didn't get a chance to use it (such a shame). We hope to visit again.

First time at this property. Well situated. Not far from town centre. Close to large shopping centre. Reception area is large. Very large. A huge circular area that is bare.

Lovely modern room which seems to be newly refurbished. The most comfortable bed that we have ever slept in ! Lovely views of the waterfront and a very short walk across the road to a shopping mall, McDonalds etc. Only reason I didn't rate the 5/5 is because there was no lift to get to the 2nd floor which made...

We stayed two nights in Sails Resort Port Macquarie. We were placed in a room that led onto the pool area right near the pump for the pool. The noise was quite loud so we asked to be moved.
