The location is magic . The food and restaurant areas are excellent. The reception service is not to the standard expected by the cost of the accommodation as the staff have attitude and could not be less co-operative if they tried. The riverside rooms have a wonderful view but the rooms are very tired and need a revamp. I have... More

Port Macquarie is a beautiful place and Rydges accentuates this. We had an amazing stay and loved every moment. Staff were very friendly and most helpful. Only downfall was not being able to do a takeaway pizza when elevator signage said so, but we could have done room service for $4 extra

We always stay in this hotel and have been very happy about it. But the area around the hotel is having an effect. They seem to be getting more youth in the area and they all crowd around this hotel or near it and it is so noisy. The room we had was away from the front but noise from... More

I write this due to a scathing report i did on this hotel some months ago. Wasn't planning to stay here again but my PA booked me in here by mistake instead of Rydges port Macquarie Sails. To my surprise was greeted by smiling face of staff that couldn't do enough for me. Such a change to 6 other previous... More

When travelling from Brisbane to Sydney we usually fly but decided to take a few more days this time and made a stop at Port Macquarie there and back. We have stayed at Rydges properties before and always had good experiences. This one is located in the city centre with rooms overlooking the river and an easy walk to the... More

I stayed at Rydges Port Macquarie with a friend, for the second time this year. This time it was for 2 nights. Checkin was a breeze (early but the Hotel Staff did not make a fuss). This stay, the room was at the rear of the hotel but overlooking the Glasshouse. The parking is directly under the hotel with a... More

Our stay at Rydges was for a weekend and it was a perfect spot. Great location in the centre of town with easy underground parking, close to beaches and breakwater as well as overlooking the foreshore park and paths for afternoon or morning walks/runs. The gym is next to the outdoor rooftop pool and spa which are lovely and inviting... More
