Stayed here 3 nights whilst at a conference. Large twin queen room with armchairs and a desk, free wifi. Car parking was limited - we got the last hotel space on one evening and colleagues had to park a couple of streets away. Reception staff were brilliant - helpful and friendly. Restaurant food was good. Bar had plenty of chairs...

We just got back from our stay in Rydges Port Macquarie. My husband booked Fri and Sat nights using his points (he is a Black member). The hotel is pretty good, would actually give it a 3.5 points rating, but tripadvisor does not allow half point. It would have been a four point, had we been upgraded to a better...

The restaurant was especially fabulous. Don't lose your cook! The room was large and quiet and I found the hotel centrally located for everything I needed to do. The front desk was always cheery and helpful as well as the staff in the restaurant.

Stayed here for two nights and certainly look forward to coming back. Our room (#207) was very large with a comfortable king bed and spacious bathroom. Window view was of concrete roof-top with water-views in background, still pleasant to look at if relaxing in the room.

This trip was for business. I love the express checkin, especially when I walk up and there is a line of people waiting. I gave them my name, my ID and my keys are good to go. It was seamless and the guy checking me in was super professional and friendly. As a bonus they upgraded me to a balcony...

The hotel is great !! The staff were super helpful and friendly. They made sure they could accommodate any requests for our business group also. The restaurant has great food with either the buffet breaky option or the set cafe menu next door. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a wedding. Gorgeous location, Stayed on first floor. Had to unfortunately pay for parking which was a bit much considering the rooms are so pricey but bed was massive and really comfortable. Some bathroom amenities could be updated e.g. bath.

Recently my son and his family stayed for a weekend, he has two year old twin boys, there was no microwave in the suite so therefore every time bottles were needed they had to take them down to the lobby to have them heated, even the mothers room at Settlement City has one in it.

Thank you for your recent feedback Julz6969. For many reasons such as space, microwaves are only included in the Apartments, not Hotel rooms. I am pleased to say since reviewing feedback such as yours we have purchased a small amount of microwaves that guests in Hotel rooms can hire on request while they are here. Thanks again for your feedback....

Well located, water views available. Handy to breakwall walk for a bit of early morning exercise. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping etc. All very handy to this hotel. Excellent bar downstairs and great place to have coffee and breakfast in the morning.
