Reviewed October 27, 2012

The Motel was clean and tidy with very friendly staff. I have stayed in the city of Port before at higher end Hotels but this was for a quick over night stay. The ground floor room was spacious and very clean the queen size bed was comfortable. The breakfast was huge and very well presented, on time and hot! The receptionist was very helpful in guiding me to a Restaurant for dinner as their Motel Restaurant was closed for the evening. I would recommend this Motel for overnight stays and will use it again as a stopover on my journeys south. Congratulations to Best Western and your Staff I have stayed in many more prestigious places with less comfort and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Stay on the ground floor I can recommend the room there it was large, comfortable and easy to access...

I like to stay in Best Western where I can in country Australia as I know exactly what I am going to get and I consider the BW in Port Mac, a cut above many of the rest. In addition to the fresh milk for tea and coffee, efficient pleasant service, comfortable bed and spotlessly clean room, my meal in their restaurant was worthy of a Sydney gastro pub!

We stopped in Port Macquarie for the second night on our trip down the NSW coast and stayed at the Best Western. Very impressed with the quality of the room - we know from experience that BW can be a bit hit and miss but this was definitely a hit. Didn't really stay here for too long so not much to say other than that the room was clean and tidy, reception was friendly, shower was strong and hot, and parking was ample. So ticks every box for what you look for in a motel.

My wife and I stayed in this motel for one night. The lady at the front desk allowed us to change to a two single bed room which was surprisingly spacious and warmly decorated. She was very helpful in giving us advice on where to go and eat. The balcony was very large and commanded a nice view. Everything was so sparkling clean and well presented. The beds and sofa were large and very comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was more than adequate. The location is convenient.

Reception service was speedy and excellent. Room spacious and very comfortable. Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Easy access to town centre, Aldi supermarket and dining. Would definitely stay again.

I arrived for business on a 5 day stay at the barracks. The motel is situated a little out of town ($13 taxi fare if you do not want to walk) but still close to everything. There is a supermarket, pub and bottle shop in very close by along with ten pin bowling and aqua golf.

After my speedy check in, I was pleasantly surprised to find a very spaceous room with a large flat screen tv (including pay TV) on the wall and my own private court yard out the back that continued through to the grassed BBQ area near the pool. The room had been catered for everyone needs and included a mini bar, choclate chips and nuts, iron and ironing board, a variety of local wines, reverse cycle air conditioning, wine glasses, bottle openers, a variety of tea and coffees, all the soaps shampoo and conditioners, a small dining table plus a lounge and 2 x lounge chairs.

The room was serviced and cleaned daily by DEE (according to the place card left in my room) and her great job left my room spotless. She also re stocked of any condiments that needed to be replaced.

Although the room is on a busy road, the rooms are far enough back so you are not disturbed by road noise and the heavy curtains (if that is what you call them) ensure that the room is blacked out so you are not disturbed by the early morning light and provides privacy during the day from the court yard.

I will be staying here next time i go to port Mac and I highly recommend this hotel for it's comfort, space and service by all staff

Rooms have been recently refurbished and are fully equiped including mini bar. The service from the staff is excellent and would happily stay there again or recomended to others. Pub a couple of doors down (Settlers Inn) is great for a beer and a feed as well.
