I arrived to a rather pleasant reception after driving 700km. On viewing the dated, unpleasant smelling and very tired room I requested to be moved. On sighting the second noisy dated, unpleasant smelling and tired room I requested a refund which was undertaken quickly and without fuss. I drove a further 4 hours to Newcastle and stayed at a far... More

Have stayed several times now, sometimes a suite this time a single room. Staff so accommodating, rooms spacious, breakfast so reasonably priced, best ever fruit salad with yoghurt and handmade muesli. The Bar & Grill great atmosphere, great food and great value. The restaurant a bit meaty for me, very gamey menu, duck, rabbit, kangaroo, chicken. Best mattresses found here.

My husband and I along with our 5 year old stayed at this hotel on the weekend (28/11/2014) for 1 night only. Check in was a breezy and had lovely, helpful staff on duty who were more than happy to help with a smile. I didn't realise that we were eligible for a late check out of 1 pm and... More

Very central as well as being on the water. The Restaurant is a little inflexible. We had a few people and one person wanted the salmon which was only on the bar menu. We couldn't order it in the restaurant so we had to all move to the bar. Apart from that, it's a fabulous place.

Excellent stay, staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing too much trouble. Ace location, great room, v good food. Only one niggle was the awful breakfast machine-made coffee - paid for bar-made flat white and not much better.

We requested a water view room which although we got we also got a view of the pool which would be nice if there wasn't a building in front with air-conditioning units blaring on the side and the back of another building plus hearing everyone swimming in the pool. The whole building doesn't present well and needs a refurbish on... More

We recently stayed at Rydges, Port Macquarie, and found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a great location, right on the water, just a short walk away from shopping, restaurants/cafes and bars. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel for couples and family getaways.

Had a wonderful weekend in the penthouse apartment celebrating my birthday with 4 girlfriends. Beautifully appointed and everything you need with a view to die for! Great location in the centre of town just a short walk away from shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars. Would highly recommend for a group of friends or a filly holiday.

I stay at the Rydges, Port Macquarie quite often for business. I am always very comfortable and well looked after. It is Central to town and I love taking long walks in the morning along the track.
