We stayed overnight and the rooms are very clean and fresh. My only criticism is that the bathroom amenities need to improve. The usual things like showers caps or toothbrush were not available. To keep my hair dry I resorted to wearing the laundry bag on my head! Overall it will be a nice hotel with great views once the... More

What a lovely resort. It is undergoing renovations and when finished will be amazing. We had a new water view room which was lovely and apart from the construction that started at 715 am it was a really nice stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. Our whole stay was great value and... More

The newly refurbished rooms are fantastic. Very comfortable, contemporary and are most likely the best rooms in Port Macquarie. Once the full hotel refurb program is complete, this hotel will be fantastic

This resort used to be very run down and crappy! However i spent two nights here and was told upon booking that one wing has been full refurbed while the other is still being refurbed. The entrance is still a tad dated but was told it will be upgraded last. Staff are friendly at check in. The rooms are very... More

This Hotel is being renovated. It did not affect my stay except the only rooms available are next to the road not the river. The river was fairly smelly the night I stayed. There is nowhere safe to park your car - the car park is close to a main thoroughfare that does slow down about 10pm. The breakfast in... More

It's been two years since I stayed here last and the hotel is roughly half way through its refurbishment. It is worth mentioning that the rooms are being completely gutted and rebuilt; and they are spectacular. The bed was the ever comfortable bed that Rydges is known for and the appointments are ultra modern (including USB chargers in the power... More

We stayed in this resort on our way between Broadbeach and Newcastle. The resort is in the midst of renovations. Our renovated room was large, well appointed, clean and very comfortable. There were, in fact, three beds in the room - a King size and two singles (we only needed the one bed). It is beautifully located on the marina.... More
