Great location between CBD and waterfront and great value for lovely, clean & well presented accommodation. We had some unforseen changes before visiting and the staff were very understanding and helpful. Due to our visit being shorter than originally planned, we look forward to returning.

Within easy walking distance of the CBD, cafes, restaurants, river and beach. Complimentary light breakfast and wifi were a definite plus. Intended to try the restaurant but it was booked out. The lift, which was due to start operating the day we left, will be great for guests staying on the top floors. Overall, very good value. We will almost... More

We use El Paso when staying over in Port Macquarie for work at the Airport. Always have a good nights sleep after excellent meals. Can see more renovations coming, looking forward to the lift. Next time we hope to visit a little more of the city centre.

El Paso is centrally located to everything you need on a holiday and/or stopover. Shops/Restaurants/Clubs/ leisure activities. The room itself was well maintained and clean and the bed was good. We were located on the top floor which was a bit of hike but once the installation of the lift is completed it will be great. Restaurant was good value... More

We had 2 rooms for us 2 dads, each with one son. Our rooms were on the 1st level and had a circular staircase coming up right outside one of our rooms. I expected this to make the room noisy, but it was actually really good. The main noise was from the birds in the park outside! The beds were... More

Unfortunately we chose to stay here in the middle of renovations and the weekend of the Port Macquarie iron man. The Fawlty Tours experience started at Check In when we were told that the voucher we purchased (at a charity auction and certainly overpaid for, all for a good cause) was old and the rate had since increased. Thankfully common... More
