“very friendly owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stayed at the Port O' Call motel for 4 nights, the owners Neil and Christine were so friendly and helpful, we had booked for 3 nights but decided to stay an extra one, as it was good friday the cost was more but Neil and Christine let us have it for the same price as the other 3 nights,they gave us some good information on what to do and where to eat, the rooms although a little small were very well laid out and clean, included a microwave and tea and coffee making facilities, and iron and iron board. The bed was a little too soft for me as i had a back problem at the time.
We had a continental breakfast include in the cost of the room, it included cereal, toast, jam, tea or coffee and juice, the pool area was really nice and relaxing and very clean.
The motel was a little far from the city center( about 5 km's), but we had a car so that was not a problem, there is a near by club to have a meal at which was very convenient.
The only real problem was the internet, it was TERRIBLE, could not connect in the room most times and when it did it kept cutting out, so we had to go outside where the connection was okay, this was a pain as the lighting was not good and the mosquitoes were bad at the time, so we had to sit in the car to use the computer, but apart from that we had a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: We had room 9, so if you want to connect to the internet it may be better to have a room near to the...

Once again we stayed at Port O'Call Motel on the way to the Central Coast and on the way back to Brisbane. Christine & Neil run a pleasant, clean and friendly Motel. I have no hesitation in recommending this Motel to anyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are great it is just a matter of how many beds you need.

We stayed one night in this motel and found it to be comfortable, well equipped and very clean. The owner was very friendly and informative. The free wifi worked well. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner recommendation made by our host.

The Motel has recently been refurbished, the room, and particularly the bathroom, was very clean. The bed was comfortable. Management were very friendly and helpful. Even though it is on the main road into Port MacQuarie there was no traffic noise. The air conditioner is a split system and is very quiet.
There is a Courtesy Bus pickup for the RSL.
I will certainly be staying here again.

I was more than happy with my stay at this motel. Finding family accommodation in peak Christmas season for just 1 night is never easy, but this motel fit the bill perfectly.

Poor area was quite lovely and well maintained. Although on a busy street, noise was not a problem as the bathroom faced out to the street. The owner was particularly friendly and made us feel very welcome on arrival. Although a basic motel, I would definitely stay here again.

Good value, very clean motels and friendly welcome. Stayed for one night on our way to Gold Coast , very pleasant, handy to main highway for leaving. Clean and tidy motel and would stay again. Close to town centre with Aldi only down the road

Stopped off in port Macquarie for a quick stopover otherwise we would have been on a greyhound bus for 15 hours!

On getting to port o,call we were welcomed by Neil and Christine and they were really helpful in phoning a cab for us in preparation for an early checkout and told us as we were hungry of a tavern 3 minutes away that we could eat and the food was good and believe us it was!

We were allocated a lovely room which was very clean with nice hot shower and tv.

There is also wifi along with a pool and even a resident koala!!

Really enjoyed the quick stopover night we had and if I was in PM again I would definitely stay here as its nice and quiet with great hosts and lovely and clean.

FYI- From the greyhound stop/ town it's $12 in a cab

Thanks Christine & Neil.
