Being a platinum Frequent Flyer and having stay twice previously at Rydges Port Macquarie, I decided to bring my wife here for her birthday and to inspect real estate. Well, have things changed since my last visit. Whilst purchasing dinner and drinks in the informal dinning area/bar, I was "ordered" to remove my hat by a shaved headed pony tailed... More

The bed was outstanding. This was overshadowed by the fact that I had paid for the river view room, but received a large building in my way. Only half of my view was the river and the other half was a dirty old building. I feel kind if ripped off in that aspect. The food at zebu underneath the hotel... More

Excellent overnite stay. Two bathrooms,nice equipped kitchen,big balcony over looking the river. Close to shopping and a easy walk along the river to the beach. Apartment came with its own numbered parking space and the lift was fast. Happy check in staff. Free wi fi and a TV in the master bedroom!

Chris P, Apologies for the inconveniences you spoke about during your recent stay. Yes like you mentioned for the full buffet breakfast it was charged at $20 per person. Filtered coffee is included in the buffet breakfast rate but I’m sorry not the coffees from the cafe. I am unable to determine which website you booked your room on but... More

Was a good sized clean room. Only downside was the noisy pub music from below :(. We had a balcony but the music was on all afternoon and night so it wasn't that pleasant to enjoy the view unless you wanted then noise. With the door closed there was no noise even at night which was good !!!! Great location,... More

We stayed here on the night of 5th August 2014 in a water view room. The view was wonderful and the staff were amazing, every one we spoke to was very helpful. Unfortunately the room needs work. The most obvious was the badly worn rollers on the sliding door on to the balcony. It was so noisy it sounded like... More

We stayed at Apartment on L5 facing the water, it's fantastic view from the balcony. This hotel is also close to the goods restaurants in Port Macquarie, suggest the Hogs Breath café and a Chinese restaurant next to Coles.
