Overall nice hotel, not exceptional. Heated outdoor pool is a highlight.Rooms are a bit tired. Quite pricey for Port Macquarie. Buffet breakfast is expensive for what it is. Hotel is next door to a pub so can be a bit noisy in the evening. Staff seem a bit too busy to offer high standard of service.

Hi Dano502, Thanks for your feedback. I was pleased to read you enjoyed our pool. Apologies the rest of the stay didn't impress you, certainly not what we want to achieve. I have noted your comments to our department heads. Thanks for review. Rydges Port Macquarie More

Hey lynette100850, Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Happy to read the dolphins came out to play whilst you were here! There are many-a-breakfasts when they come out to play whilst the diners having their morning coffee. Hopefully we'll see you again before the year is out. Thanks for staying with us.

Everything was perfect! Lovely staff were very helpful and didn't look down at me and my boyfriend when my card declined. We only stayed one night but the room was spotless and smelt beautiful. We had a view of the pool. The bed was massive I feel asleep in my towel after the shower it was that comfy. Definitely will... More

Stayed 3 nights in a handicapped room on the 3rd floor. Good size comfortable clean room and bathroom. No balcony though. Easy access to elevator and heated pool. Room is on side of hotel which we found beneficial. No loud music from pub at the front and still had views of the river and distant beach. Very easy walk to... More

We stopped overnight at Rydges on our way through to the Gold Coast over the Sept school holidays in order to break up a long drive (with little kids). After driving some 6 hours we arrived to find no hotel parking which then saw us driving around the vicinity searching for somewhere to park which wasn't as easy as the... More

Noisy loading dock under room with banging beer kegs and rubbish bins. Staff acted surprised and manager would not address the issue. Otherwise the hotel is ok and in a great location. Beds very soft.
