We stayed overnight. We thought the hotel was very good value for money and were surprised how good our room was. We had dinner in the hotel and that was also good. The staff are very helpful without being overpowering and we would stay at the hotel again.

The hotel is located in a great position, on the Hastings River and close to town. However, the nearest beach (Town Beach) is quite a distance if you had to carry all the stuff for kids. We had a Deluxe King room, which was comfortable with a king size bed, and a good view from the balcony. But DO NOT... More

we recently stayed at this motel for five nights and found the price to be reasonable.It was nice and quiet through the night and if you upgrade to a pool and or river view it is well worthwhile and you can get a king bed for a few dollars more. We found the bed most comfortable. The cooked breakfast is... More

The room was nice and clean with good facilities. A lovely large balcony overlooking the marina and the hotel is close to shops and restaurants. The hotel is also close to the Billabong Zoo and Koala Hospital. I would however, suggest that the rooms are equipped with a bottle opener and a toaster. I would recommend this motel.

Great location on the canal side of Port Macquarie, walking distance to shops, clubs and right opposite the marina. Very quiet, rooms a good size although a little dated. Restaurant and bar within the hotel, breakfast pricing was reasonable and nice outlook on the outside deck overlooking the pool and the canal. Bed was comfortable and the blockout drapes enabled...

I did a quick stay over here and was really unimpressed. The front desk staff were distant and vague, and to get to my room (227) I had to climb stairs with the bags, no lift in sight. The room was small, basic and I could hear every sound from next door. On retiring to the balcony with a beer... More

We stayed here passing through port Macquarie. It's reasonably true to the pictures on websites, though maybe not as "sparkly". We booked a basic room on booking.com, however were later offered a water view room (via promotional email). We decided to take it. When we arrived however, the hotel knew nothing of this upgrade, neither did they have our credit... More

We were here just for one night in transit but had a good impression of the hotel and the way it was run whilst we were there. We had a king room with the view of the pool and lake, this was really pretty. The pool/ restaurant area was really inviting. Reception staff were very helpful and knew their stuff.
