Lovely views of the river and overlooking a lovely clean pool. Hotel has its own pet iguana in the open area (?) and koi carp. I wish I has known how lovely... More

We came here for an overnight trip to see The Beards at Panthers and it did the trick just nicely. Not overly modern or fancy, but it's pleasant and convenient with beautiful views of the marina. The staff were very friendly and helpful. And the wifi is free and easy to access. The only issue was the bed, being a... More

I have stayed at Sails a few times in the past (more years ago now than I like to remember....or even can!) and was aware of the facilities. However I was very disappointed to find that the sauna - one of the main reasons I booked this place, was not only not working, it was non-existent and not going to... More

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Sails Resort Port Macquarie by Rydges. I apologise if you felt the hotel had been untruthful. The hotel sauna had broken down and unfortunately the price to repair it was unreasonable or affordable for the hotel at the time. I have been onto this website and removed any notation of... More

Just had 2 night stay at Sails, in a water view king room and it was very enjoyable. Sure the hotel is showing its age but I understand it will soon be renovated so that should transform it into a high quality resort. The location and perspective overlooking the river, marina and town is excellent and even though it was... More

With no reservation we called in and were warmly welcomed and once checked in luggage was out of the car and to the rooms by the helpful staff. Nothing was a problem with very clean rooms that were quiet and a restful atmosphere. A perfect stopover for a night or a week. Walking tracks lead from the resort and lead... More

Have not been there for several years, so decided to try it again whilst travelling north to Queensland...stayed over one night, excellent service, great room clean and tidy, plus restaurant meal was more like you would get in a top city restaurant...polite professional reception staff. Great views, relaxing and friendly..what more could you want.
