Very clean room and comfortable bedding, quiet location, with good amenities for the price. Walking distance to the main centre and good restaurants near by also walking distance, running and walking paths with water views.

Yes, Port Macquarie is a great stop off being half way between Sydney & Brisbane. Our motel fits nicely into this category being centrally located within the town. Thanks for your comments. More

My husband & I were looking for an economical overnight stay in Port Macquarie on our journey down the East coast and were pleasantly surprised by our booking at the Aston Hill Motor Lodge. It was stylish, comfortable and had many more amenities than we expected for the price. The staff were outstandingly friendly and helpful and to top it... More

Glad you liked it. We have a lot of Company Representatives stay with us during the week and my wife makes me have a breakfast every day before i leave for work. Since then I know you feel better for it, so at the motel we include one complimentary continental breakfast in our tariff [excludes basic executive rooms] For the... More

There were 2 bedrooms in our apartment BUT only one bedroom had a door to ensure privacy. Bathroom and kitchenette were quite well appointed, all windows opened and air conditioners worked well. No drawers in bedrooms.

Your comments are appreciated, however the reason we do not have drawers in the bedroom is to minimise items being left in them, which is very inconvenient when you are travelling from overseas. More

Spent 2 nights here. Very nice small motel very well maintained. Very quiet good parking, pleasant staff. Nice patio area. Excellent room and facilities very clean. Highly recommended. There are some nice things to do in this small town - an excellent museum where we spent over 2 hours and the lovely Koala hospital.

The fridge didnt work, the bed was uncomfortable and there was a smell of beer in the room. The shower and bathroom was nice though. It was a fairly average motel. And the sign says ahh peace and quiet but we awoke to a screaming kid at 7 in the morning. False advertising

Welcome to Trip Advisor and your first review. I'm not sure what "Meh" means, however thank you for your 4/5 overall ranking. Our beds are Sealy Posturepedic Pillow Tops, which are generally very highly appraised by our Guests. I recall you bringing to our attention, in the evening, that the fridge had stopped working, ( replaced next morning) we offered... More

Stayed for 3 nights in Superior Double. Must admit wee bit dissapointed. Room had 2 windows neither of which you could really use. One was a high level kitchen window & main room window looked straight into residential apartments. Looking at the website I assumed (never assume) we would have had a balcony. Our door opened into carpark. Did query... More

Thank you for the high appraisal of our "Spotless" rooms. Our website clearly states that our Prestige rooms have balconies, and there is no mention of balconies for our Superior rooms, which would eliminate any need for assumptions, when booking. We would have gladly accommodated any request for an upgrade, if a Prestige unit was available, however on this occasion,... More

I booked a night through Expedia. I had called the reception because we arrived late at night. The key was placed under the mat, than we came in the apartment without any problems! The apartment was nice, but we were only there for one night. In the morning I made check in and check out. They used my credit card.... More

I stayed at the Aston Hill Motor lodge for a total of six nights and I was very comfortable. The room itself has everything you need with a fair amount of living space: - The bedroom had a queen sized bed, a desk area, a large TV, air conditioning, two individual sofas and a table in the room (and none...

Thank you for your comments. It is very pleasing to know that you enjoyed our hospitality. I agree with your comment that if the guest's in the adjoining room could only be heard intermittently it would indicate that the problem only occurred when the noise level was excessive, which if reported to management can nullified immediately.

Comfortable rooms close to town but very disappointed in the cleanliness of the pool. Was so brown we didn't even get to use it. Would of like a nicer greeting after travelling so far. Breakfast could of been a bit better by adding pastries yoghurt etc...

Thank you for your endorsement of "comfortable rooms" and our location We acted on your comment about our pool upon checkout with concern and conducted an immediate inspection, the pool was crystal clear and tests reinforced that it was within legislated guidelines for public use . Perhaps you have not seen a pool surface that is a natural pebblecrete before,... More
