Very good reception, room was spacious, great balcony facing the water was awesome, all the amenities you would want. Location is great, i enjoyed walking the path on the breakwall and beach. Parked under the hotel. Breakfast was great and bar was convenient.

We stay here for work every month for the past few months after changing from another establishment for past 5-6 years. The service is outstanding, the breakfast is always pleasant and reasonable. The restaurant is a bit expensive compared to others in town, but handy if you arrive late, like we normally do. The accommodation is well presented, spacious and... More

We booked a room while travelling and were very pleased to arrive in Port Macquarie and find friendly staff and a nice room with lots of space. It's so close to the town and the break wall for a walk and to all sorts of food outlets for breakfast and coffee. Would definitely stay here again

. Parking very challenging, not enough for guests therefore had to park in residence parking. Being a Rydges member I was informed that parking was included but advised otherwise as I had booked a room that this was not valid for . Accommodation very clean and comfortable . Convenient location

Stayed 1 night with family. Big rooms, heaps of space for bub's cot and suitcases etc. Nice clean modern bathrooms. Great location right on the waterfront with casual restaurant/cafe and nicer restaurant right down stairs. Nice pub within walking distance shopping centre directly across the road. Best place to stay in Port Macquarie in my opinion.

My wife and I booked in for a couple of nights just for a break. The check-in/out service was excellent and the water side view was to die for. The room was large and with a balcony a perfect place for drinks. There was a secure underground car park well worth it for the $10 fee. The one drawback, especially... More

Lots of beer on tap and a decent menu in the casual bar. Close to shopping centre and river, parking area underneath hotel. Suggest trying the hotel beer on tap and the beef quesadilla. Would be good in summer time when outdoor areas are accessible and in full sun.

Nicole at reception was very friendly and helpful. Terrific room with spectacular views. Very comfortable king size bed and great water pressure in the shower. Great location for all the restaurants, shopping centre and walking tracks. Have stayed here 3 times before this stay and will definitely be staying here again when next in Port Macquarie.

Every thing lived up to my expectations The room overlooking the River was large and well appointed - a dressing gown would have been useful. The restaurants were prompt, clean and food was good The Bistro bar was alive

The Rydges at Port Macquarie Is definitely value for money. The friendly staff & excellent customer service along with our beautiful large suite just made our whole experience memorable. We would definitely recommend a stay here on your next visit to the Port. Everything is a short stroll from the hotel so you can leave your car in the undercover... More
