Staff are very attentive to their services and very welcoming. For the first and second time when I was there, I... More

Hey Luxurious88, Thanks for choosing to stay with us! Appreciate the good feedback regarding our service! Regarding the bedding; all of the hotel rooms have the Rydges dream beds but a few of the studios and apartments which are privately owned are yet to have the beds installed. Only just on Friday did the front office manager send a reminder... More

I have to say it was a really lovely town with great beaches and the hotel was good. We had a room with a balcony (chairs and tables) overlooking the water, it was lovely. The room... More

After leaving Coffs Harbour after a bad accommodation experience we drove to Port Macquarie and turned up at Rydges. We walked in and spoke to Sheree on reception. She was amazing! She gave us a fantastic deal for a superior room deal with two free cocktails and two breakfasts. Plus using my priority card I got a free glass of... More

We needed a comfortable place to stay overnight travelling back to Sydney and got great value for money. It was great to get a rate for the night that matched what I was looking for. Very happy with the service and the brand and will be a repeat customer.

We enjoyed our stay at Rydges over the Easter break. Nice big spacious double bedroom suite overlooking the town. Car-parking was included in the hotel's underground car park - which was convenient. Staff were very helpful in allowing us to check in early sine we arrived early in the morning. Also the hotel breakfast buffet was exceptional.
