The service was wonderful with our children well catered for and our seafood meals were excellent. Our room a water studio was spacious enough for... More

Stayed just one night to break up the gold coast to Sydney drive. Rooms are quite dated, but I understand Rydges will be refurbishing. I hope they redo the bathrooms too, they are not too functional, with shower over bath and toilet in one room, and vanity and basin outside of that. Our bathroom did not have a working exhaust...

This resort runs events on the weekend where the music and bass continue until 11.3o pm. If you wish to sleep before 11.30 pm, this is not the place for you. Try somewhere else. During an event (eg wedding, party, celebration) restaurant will be closed and noise and loud speaker of MC continuous until 11.30 pm. What more can One... More

Thank you for your feedback Kath, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and were inconvenienced by the noise from the wedding in the restaurant. The restaurant does occasionally get booked for functions and we do our best to ensure the music is stopped early and guests not attending the function are allocated away from the noise.... More

I don't follow football and dislike being in the midst of noisy young football 'guests' So my one night here was spoiled by noisy neighbours for a good part of the night. My room was average and overlooked the entrance and parking (I guess for a one night stopover it is reasonable to expect the hotel to select a room... More

Thank you for taking the time to express some feedback regarding your recent stay at Sails Resort Port Macquarie by Rydges. As you mentioned, it is hard for the hotel to control all the players and families.

We happened upon this hotel during our honeymoon road trip of the East Coast of Aus. Its beautiful. The lady on reception on 10/02/14 (pm) was superb. The room was lovely, spacious enough, adequately decorated and had everything we required with a gorgeous view. A dip in the lush pool was exactly what the doctor ordered after a long drive... More

Stayed a couple of nights in this hotel and wished we had booked elsewhere. This used to be a family run hotel but has been taken over in the last six months or so by the corporate Rydges. It needs a serious overhaul of both the fixtures and fittings. Our room, which was at the rear of the property was... More

The rooms are clean and tidy but the pool area and grounds are terrible. Not pleaseing at all, this would be a let-down for a family wanting a resort style pool area. Looked worse than most public pools.
