The Staff were very friendly and helpful, it was just that the room was rather pokey and cramped. We were given a wheelchair access room but the room was so small I doubt that they would be able to get in, the only place wheelchair friendly was the bathroom. It was hard to access the cupboards and the cups for... More

Nice rooms, close to the waterfront promenade for an early morning walk. Good restaurant on ground floor. Have stayed their twice in last 6 months and on both occasions have been well served. No alcohol in the mini-bar - which I count as a good thing. Bits of archeological digs of the early colonial days of Port Macquarie are on... More

The hotel is centrally located one street from the beach and on the main shopping area. Our room was on the2nd floor and over looking the pool. The smell of chlorine was pretty over powering but it was to cold to have the balcony door open when we were there, so didnt matter to much. The pool and spa would... More

Thank you for your review.
