Thank you for allowing us to bring our big puppy to your Motel, made life so much easier to have a break in driving back to Sydney, and for allowing us to park our boat in a spot easy to get out. I must say, I LOVE reading your responses to some guests comments. I am a Motel Manager &... More

Great motel, especially only one that we could find that was pet friendly. Very clean rooms, comfy beds only issue we found was getting in and out of the motel from the highway. Highly recommend staying here if you have fur-babies!!!

Nice and clean. TV, large shower, fridge, toaster, everything you need is here. No hair dryer. Ask for the room to be cleaned, they don't do it if you don't ask. Friendly staff. Nice deck to chill out at sunset and beautiful pool. I would recommend it.

My family and I were travelling from the Gold Coast to Sydney and decided to stay at Port Macquarie for one night to brake up the driving. After searching for a place to stay at 8 hotels(which were all fully booked out), we were pleasantly surprised when we came across the 'Koala Tree Resort'. We were wonderfully welcomed by the...

We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who gave us the run down of the rooms and services. I sceptical with it being pet friendly however was pleasantly surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the room. They also offer pet sitting services! We went out for dinner and our dog was barking on our departure, the receptionist said she'd... More

We were on a camping trip with a large malamute dog when the rain came. We decided camping was out so looked around for pet friendly accommodation and found the Koala Tree. The room was a double spa which we used whilst watching the large screen TV in the room. Plenty of hot water that evening but we think a... More

JamesDanton, General Manager at Koala Tree Motel, responded to this review

I'm really fed up with the lack of personal responsibility with folks these days and the way they then obfuscate their own liability with claims of rudeness. EVERYBODY at EVERY property you stay at takes some kind of security on your stay, usually with a credit card pre-authorisation. In your case, your problem was having to pay for a rug... More

Manager knocks on our door at 6:30am telling us the kids are too noisy and we should really think about heading off as he has been unable to sleep because of them. The fact that we were in a FAMILY room booked in with 3 KIDS is apparently not his concern. 2 weeks later we find a charge to our... More

Stayed recently and the manager is Port Macquarie's answer to Basil Fawlty without the wit or entertainment value. Rude, yes. Sarcastic,yes. Tells bald-face lies? Yes. Truly felt be could snap so just played him with some protective friendliness which seemed to appeal to his ego.
