Came upon this as we were looking for a ground floor room with parking out front. Room was spacious and came with all amenities and free wi-fi as well. Continental breakfast is included. Nothing fancy but sufficient to tie you till lunch. No complaints. Room was clean and surroundings were quiet.

My family (myself, wife, 2 kids) for one night after driving from Tweed on the way through to Sydney. It was easy to find and parking is very easy (included in rate). The lovely lady on reception was more than welcoming and very helpful with dinner ideas. The room was comfortable and up one flight of stairs. We had a... More

I stayed for the one night while driving north from Sydney. The place is undergoing a refurbisment at the moment so once finished it will be great. The Inn is very close to the waterfront area and the restaurants. The great thing is natures alarm clock. You will be woken by the hundreds of lorikeets which roost in the norfolk... More

We're becoming regulars here. Originally chosen for its location right smack in the middle of all of the action in Port Macquarie, later because of the great service and quality of fittings and amenities in the tastefully refurbished rooms. Quiet air-conditioning for when there's no breeze from the East-facing balconies; high-res widescreen digital TV, and the clever USB charging sockets... More

We stayed in Room 110 which we assumed had already received attention from the ongoing updating process. This room was large and well furnished.The beds were comfortable and supplied with top sheets. The bathroom was one of the best... More

Perfect location on the main street about a 2 minute walk to the town green. The room we stayed in was a little bit dated but for the price we payed we were very happy. The waterfront restaraunt over looks the break wall and served a very good breakfast. It was ideal for us for an over night stay.

Location Location Location! Great value for money in downtown Port Macquarie handy to everything....pubs, shopping and restaurants. Comfy beds in the refurbished rooms and big screen TV are a bonus. Bathrooms have been renovated but design not good with no shower screen and toilet awkward to access.....but still great value for money....free wifi and free basic breakfast a plus.
