Only stayed in here for 1 night on our way back home from Gold Coast. We have stayed in Port Macquarie before and this was the first time we stayed here. What a great place. Only minutes to walk into town along the waters edge. Rooms were clean and tidy and staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here... More

We only stayed one night here on our drive from Sydney to Brisbane. We had a ground floor river view apartment which was lovely. Had everything you could need. Woke up to dolphins a few meters in front of us along with lots of pelicans, beautiful. Breakfast was very good. Wish we had stayed longer. Staff very welcoming.

We had 5 night here in late March and found everything to be great. The rooms were clean and tidy and the room that we had, had a great view of the River. Coming from the dry New England region it was lovely to be able to look at the water and the boats on it. It was very central... More

I've watched this riverfront hotel go through some extensive changes over the years and the changes have been quite positive, especially the pool and outside deck areas. If you happen to get stuck in a room that looks out over the roadway at the back, you will wish you had paid just a bit more for a river view room.... More

Good, clean rooms - ensure on waterfront side rather than car park! Good central location to walk everywhere and comfortable rooms with all basic requirements met. No frills but enjoyable stay. Room walls very thin - could hear every word from next door (May have been as adjoining room with locked door in-between so avoid).

My husband and I stayed here for one night only. Intended to stay longer, but found this motel incorrectly named. Being named a Boutique Hotel, thought it may be a little above average. It is not. There are no opening windows in the "Deluxe Queen rooms". Nylon curtain in the shower recess?? Very much in need of renovation. Back to... More

Have just spent four nights with my group of 30 70+youngsters. We had a room overlooking the pool on the ground floor while others were upstairs.
