Stayed a night for work last night and could hardly fault anything. Front desk service was warm and friendly, the room was huge, quiet, clean and with a very comfortable bed, and the room service was absolutely outstanding. So much so that it was hard to believe it was room service - until now I have never had anything anywhere... More

A decent enough 4 star hotel in the Port on the breakwater wall. Staff were efficient and friendly but the place is what it is - well located, comfortable with variable food quality. We had some tacos that were just plain awful and we were hungry. In the bar service was variable with a couple of the usual officious hipsters... More

We had a lovely room, good size overlooking the river. Staff are good, room clean and comfortable bed. Great walking paths along river and to beach. Shopping centre close by. Downstairs bar and coffee shop great. Unfortunately it is very noisy on the nights of the weekend.

The quality was everything one would expect of Rydges. Well appointed, clean, friendly and helpful staff, nice views of the river, heated pool, good restaurant etc etc. Our stay was marred however by the unacceptable noise level in the area which kept us awake until after midnight on Saturday night, even where we were up on the 6th floor. I... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times. The rooms facing the river attract a lot of noise from the bars and air conditioning units below . The views are average as the top floors are private apartments. Generally the rooms are good clean and new. Zebu is overrated. The bar dose make a great martini.

We recently attended a wedding and reception at the Rydges Port Macquarie with approximately 120 guests. The tables were unstable, the lighting terrible and the food was quite ordinary with small portions. The big fail of the night was that all the adults at the wedding reception had been served their meals and were finished and the plates removed before... More

My wife and I overnighted in a river view room during a Brisbane - Sydney drive. The standard is above what is anticipated in a regional centre, but a bit short of the advertised four star. The room was spacious and clean with a king sized bed, but with quite basic furnishings and a large expanse of open space. The... More

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
