This motel is situated in an idyllic position right on the river waterfront, with some rooms having a beautiful view of the river traffic. However, it is an older building and therefore it is good to see maintenance being undertaken. The motel is in a very convenient position, just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town.

Drove past this nice little bay town Port Macquarie, and stayed here overnight. Hotel is at a good location in the town. It's just 5mins walk to the city centre. And it's also very close to a supermarket. The hotel is literally sitting on the water edge. Paid $10 extra for water view room, which is totally worth it. beautiful... More

This hotel is close to town and cafes in Port. It is a little older but still quiet clean. The bed is very comfortable. Bathroom clean bit model on the older style, with shower over the bath and dispenser for soap and shampoo. Great value for a quick get away for the weekend. Would stay any longer than a weekend....

Stayed for two nights as we explored Port Macquarie....it was a great location on the harbor within easy walking distance to town, which we liked very much. The rooms were very clean, good size but quite dated, the beds were hard..... they do not look like the pictures on the website so that was a disappointment. The breakfast was not... More

Staying only one night, for medical reasons but found the staff very friendly from the desk to the bar and restaurant. Great spot and facilities,car parking was a bit tight. Very clean rooms. Good in winter with the fire place and lounge chairs and would be fabulous in summer.

Checked in for one night. Rooms are large and clean. Located within walking distance to foreshore, pubs, clubs and restaurants. Staff are very friendly. Parking on site is limited but free. Rooms facing the street are a little noisy, but bearable. WiFi is free however I found the signal a little weak and speed was slow on both iPad and... More

Great, quiet room. Clean. Lovely staff. Watch out in the shower. The water sometimes spurts scalding water. And the very good buffet breakfast was barely lukewarm. Didn't try their restaurant we'd still return.

I have stayed here many times and never disappointed. This time I stayed in a first floor room looking directly out over the Hastings River. You feel as though you could touch the water you that close. Pay a little more for these rooms but its worth it for the view. Room was clean and comfortable.

Decided on a quick one-night away at the last minute and couldn't believe how nice and how cheap this place is. Only $136 including buffet breakfast. Top location near shops bars and restaurants. Beautiful pool area overlooking the water would be fantastic in summer. Will definitely come back again.
