I never write reviews but we were very disappointed with rydges at port Macquarie. We traveled as a couple and requested a one mattress bed and were advised that they don't have any in the hotel. That ALL beds are singles, and must be joined... I find this ridiculous. The room was very outdated, curtains were old, the TV was... More

We stopped here en-route to a family wedding on the far north coast. The room was great. Quite large - queen sized bed, no view - but I only there one night and didn't need a view. Quite - which is a priority. Bathroom was fine, very clean and good shower power. Very happy with the location - right by... More

Stayed overnight and it is in a top spot, my room overlooked Ports wharf / town green area away from Park street which can get noisy very early in the morning with occasional turbo car hoons. The room was clean and comfortable. Zebu bar and grill is on the ground floor should you need refreshments and or food (which is... More

We had a family room booked for 5 nights but we were put in a small room with 2 queen beds. The kids had to share a bed. We were here for a respite holiday for our son, he has Autism thats why we need a family room, for space. It was hard on him. We had to park on... More

Hi Tina R, Sorry to read of your disappointment. Yes, with the rooms we either have king beds or a room with two queens. Alternatively there are two and three bedroom apartments available if guests want more space. Sincerely sorry to read of your parking fine. Not sure what happened there as we have undercover parking or on the street... More

Stayed one night on passing through. Paid $175 but feel it only worth $100. Room was dated but clean. I am not a fan of a shower over a bath. Not impressed by the car park charge of $10/night on top of the above charge. Good central location.

We stayed here for four nights during rehearsals for a local performance. The location was great - right on the main street of Port Macquarie and a few steps from the waterfront (to the breakwater - you have to walk along the breakwater to get to the ocean though). We were also within a few steps of a shopping centre... More

Nice big room but the dark wood furniture has a very dated appearance. The two queen beds were both very comfortable and we had a lovely view over the water from the balcony. At $273, which included a fairly basic buffet breakfast, it was very overpriced. Location is good, though.

We chose a waterview room which was very large and comfortable. However, our room overlooked the swimming pool and was at times a bit noisy. A/C a bit noisy in the night. It had a hedge on the balcony which hid the view of the water unless you were standing, so missed out on the water view. Make sure you... More
