“Comfortable and Tidy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

A little on the southern end before you get into town - about 4kms. I had the spa room. It was clean and comfortably appointed. The only downside is that the hotel is on the main road and the trucks can be heard frequently during the night. The breakfast is ample and reasonably priced. Staff were polite and friendly. While the external appearance is not flashy if you are just looking for a clean and tidy place to sleep at a reasonable price then this is a great hotel to consider.

This was our first stay here but won't be our last. We both agreed these were the best beds/pillows we had found in 25 yrs motelling. Although close to the road, traffic noise is an absolute minimum and not really noticeable. The small courtyard at the back of the room is ideal for breakfast. Being a weekend, the restaurant was sadly closed, but the pub about one minutes walk away offered great pub grub at realistic prices and great cold beer. Reception staff? If Great Western cloned Nicole and put her in all their motels they'd be doing us all a favour. Considerate, helpful and friendly, with good advice on where to eat and what to do. Happy to give them five out of five for my first ever review.

We stayed 2 nights at Best Western Macquarie Barracks just before Easter. It's a great motel and they have fly buys! We chose the Deluxe Queen room, it was on the ground floor and you could park at the door. The room was very clean and my wife is a serial assessor on this subject. The bed was good & comfy, the TV worked, the shower was terrific, didn't need the AC but it was there, toaster jug etc. I was able to use the free wi-fi internet anytime. There was plenty of room for both of us and that is important. There was an outside balcony to relax in as well. Reception couldn't be more helpful and the restaurant meals were wonderfully delicious so we went there both nights. The location is not great on a busy road and there is nowhere much to walk at night but that's a minor issue. We will be back.

Convieniently located on the road into town, this motel is clean, easy to park in and has a fully stocked mini bar.
My room was on the first floor overlooking Hastings Drive. It was a little noisy.
There is a good pub within walking distance that serves good pub grub, the resteraunt was not open on the weekend for dinner.
Breakfast was very nice, I had poached eggs on toast with mushrooms, which also includes the continental breakfast, a great spread.
Free wifi is available.

Room Tip: Try to get one near the back of the property, away from the road.

This was our second stay at the Best Western, based on satisfaction on first visit. Once again it proved to be a good stay - at a really good price.
Staff on reception very helpful, very comfortable bed, very clean & room has everything you can need for an overnight stay (or more)
Will definitely use again next time we go through Port Macquarie

This is a nice hotel and the staff were so hospitable and so welcoming. I used to spend 30 minutes talking to them about what to do and where to go and they always had the time for me and they never made me feel uncomfortable. The rooms are clean not too big but nice location is OK and the shower was so Nice I loved my showers here as the shower head gave me a massage while I was showering cause its such a good and powerful shower head

Room Tip: You can talk to the staff anytime they are so nice

Clean,comfortable everything else that you could want in a motel - but the special element for us was the staff, particularly Nicole who was welcoming and so helpful. Stranded in Port Macquarie because of floods we could not have asked for anything more in a motel. Will definitely recommend ( and use again ourselves in the need arises).
