“Not what I expected on arrival.”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We arrived after car journey from Sydney (4 hours) and didnt think much of outside. But it was inexpensive to book. The room was a bit dated and a bit smelly but was ok to stay in. Some other rooms had been updated and they looked lovely, would ask for a updated room next time. No balconies but you could sit in walkway outside door and watch the birds in gardens, The BBQ area was in garden and was busy but we always found a cheerful crowd to talk to. Staff very helpful and provided all manner of things ie sauces, plates tongs etc for BBQ free of charge. Would stay here again as the river is 1 minute walk from front door.

Room Tip: Ask for an end room looking out to river.

Had an overnight stay at this lovely little motel on the way back to Sydney from Brisbane. The location was excellent, the rooms were a good size & very clean. The staff were very helpful. Port Macquarie is a lovely town & we wished we had had more time to explore it......maybe next time!

We stayed at the Mid Pacific on our drive back to Sydney from the Sunshine Coast, and it's a fabulous place to break the trip. It is in the heart of Port Macquarie, so we were able to grab a meal and some basics with ease. The rooms are a very generous size, nice, light, airy and clean, and our room had a lovely view of the river. It's a family owned hotel so the service is very warm and personal. We were travelling with another family who had stayed there a year previously, and the owner remembered them. There is also a salt water pool right on the river. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The motel has three levels, so the higher the level the better the view. The rooms towards the rive...

This hotel looks very 70s from the outside but the interior has had an update. It is quite basic but has everything you'd need for a short stay. Very good location for shopping and restaurants but a bit of a walk to the beach.

We were travelling to Queensland and selecting accomodation as we went- we saw this motel in the travel guide and thought the location and prices looked good.
We were very pleased with the room- the view from our top floor window was great- and we had easy access to shops and resataurants.
The staff were very friendly and the room was large and well appointed.
We will certainly stay here again.

Good place but at 4am each morning all the street cleaners of the city start their engines, just outside of the place.
You will wake up!

Dear Rob,

Thank you for your review. We are in the heart of the CBD and street cleaners do clean our streets as they do in any city but they commence at 7.30am once a week and there is only one. As you know we are located on the corner of a court that ends at our water frontage and it is used primarily for car parking. The depot that houses all local government machinery is located on the outskirts of town so I am at a loss with your comment that they all start up outside our premises. I checked with our local council and none of their workers commence work at 4.00am. You thankfully still enjoyed your stay in our newly refurbished rooms and I look forward to seeing you again at the Mid Pacific. Kind Regards Jan Morris
