I stayed here for four nights so I could take part in the Port Mac Ironman Triathlon. The hotel are just okay, the bed was fine and it did the job. Parking wasn't great, TV was average. for the price didn't live up to expectations.

From the moment I set foot in this place I was met with abrupt, inhospitable treatment by the owner. His wife refused to tell me his name when I ended up leaving on day two of what was meant to be a three night stay. Simple questions such as how to login to wifi and how to operate the tv,... More

- The location: From the discreet entrance, lined with nice hedges, this place sets the tone as a quiet haven just slightly removed from the centre of town and the nearby beaches. - The architecture: Unremarkable, average motel, with hardly any decoration or style. - The room: Vey good! Spacious, clean, tidy and smelt really nice as I walked in.... More

We spent two nights at this motel last week. The owner was unsmiling and unwelcoming. The globe in the above bed reading light was missing. There was no toaster and no microwave and when we requested a toaster we were told by the owner "there aren't any" (after telling the (very pleasant) cleaner the next day we had one given... More

The motel is located just a couple of blocks from the city centre and the beach so great location. The gentleman on reception was friendly. It is an old motel but clean. Maybe the curtain linings could washed. I found my room quiet and slept well.

If I could put ZERO stars I would - There were two of us. Upon arrival the room smelled funny (like cigarettes) but I let it slide. We were only staying for a stop over (driving through to Brisbane). Also the main light bulb had blown - perfect if you are arriving at night, like us (sarcasm). An hour after... More

My boyfriend and I were driving from Sydney to Brisbane at the beginning of December and chose Excelsior as our stop over destination (we booked prior to leaving for the trip). Great location, close to the main street, shops and restaurants. The sheets and towels were clean which for a short stay is really all that matters. Easy check in... More

We stayed here overnight and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly and helpful manager, good central location, which is in easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Port Macquarie. The room was spacious, clean , on the ground floor, ample parking and very reasonably priced tariff. The motel is on a hill, gets good sea breezes and is... More

Clean,big rooms close to the CBD and restaurants.Downstairs room was nicely appointed and fairly new.Quiet location,comfortable beds.Parking a little tight.Cheap accomodation without too much frill.Recommend to bargain hunters who want an address close to town.A bit shabby on the outside but this is not where you sleep.

Arrived late afternoon with no booking and was after a single room. Owner was able to offer a room that in his opinion was not up to standard as the aircon was not working. Motel was booked out otherwise. I was offered a discount. Room was was ideal with a nice sea breeze. Walk down Willliam Street to the bowling... More
