Had booked a $200 room with a river view and are currently sitting on the bed looking at the roof of the building in front of us with the airconditioning unit humming loudly off our balcony. To see the river we have to stand in the corner. The bathroom wasn't very clean either. Don't rate the Rydges at Port at... More

Stayed here only for 1 night on business. Had a drink a the bar. It was right in town, near the water. Staff were efficient the room I had was a cornier room so it was larger. Fast check in and out. Good security with the lift. Slightly pricey to eat and drink but it is a more upmarket hotel.... More

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. I had asked to be contacted if early check in was available and also asked for a high floor if possible. Both requests were met by the helpful staff. Our top floor room was beyond expectation, creating the perfect setting for our bride to be. Spacious rooms, breathtaking ocean views.

Appreciated the receptionist offering a one bedroom unit as we had not pre booked, the room on 1st floor, no outlook and nothing but a room with a view of a outside wall, we decided to seek our money back, on arrival back...

Stayed January 2015. Excellent accommodation, excellent location and value. Kids loved the pool. All clean and tidy with absolutely no issues. Situated right in the middle of everything. Worth joining their rewards program to get discounts straight away on accommodation and drinks/food.

A good place to stay, right in the middle of town very close to the arts centre and gallery, good staff, good bar, good restaurant, will stay here again when next in Port Mac. Couldn't get into the hotel parking but street parking was okay as the hotel is across from the police station.

We stayed at the Rydges Port Macquarie for 3 nights. Rooms were tidy and clean, mini bar well stocked and included classic games like Dominos and Pick up Sticks. Centrally located, 3 minute walk to the main shopping centre and main street. The hotel is surrounded by many restaurants and bars, so choice for food and drink is plenty. Down... More
