“Pretty good”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Carpark was average, parking outside your room, but a bit tight, not undercover.

Got in late and tired and tried our luck here. Hosts were very hospitable, room was pretty good, clean. Ate dinner at the restaurant which was better than expected. Pub style food, service quick, nice staff, restaurant was almost full. Had free wifi which all motels should have. Free individually wrapped lollies which were a nice touch. Had breakfast in town which was good, except for being hassled by some girls trying to flog time share accomodation. Shame we didn't get to spend more time, quite a nice town from what we saw. If i was going there for a holiday i'd probably consider somewhere a bit nicer, but for a clean bed this motel would be hard to fault.

I have stayed here on several occasions. Great place to stay. The rooms I stayed in were spotless. The service was excellent, very friendly and helpful. The room was quiet, didn't hear any road noise or noise from other guests.. You can park your car outside your room in a well lit car park. Will stay here every time I visit Port Macquarie!

For some 5 years now our family and friends have been visiting Port Macquarie on road trips into NSW and VIC from the Gold Coast

With each visit our stay is at Best Western Macquarie Barracks on Hastings River Drive where the accomodation facilities are first class in all respects.

Dining at the Governor's Restaurant is always an enjoyable experience.

The food is first rate and there is a good selection of beverages.

We have stayed in several Best Western establishments in NSW and VIC but the Macquarie Barracks gets our vote !

My wife and I had to go to a funeral over the weekend and we decided to stay here. Upon our arrival nothing was to hard for the owners. They explained everything to us and even gave us suggested venues for the night. We totally enjoyed our 2 day stay and as for the reported traffic noise. We did not hear a thing. Will be going back.

As my wife is disabled we needed a room which was disabled friendly. The room provided was excellent and all of the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Despite facing the street , the room was quiet. It was quite spacious with a lovely outdoor area at the rear.
However the room we had looked a little bit tied and the towels were quite worn.

Helpful and friendly contact maintained from first contact through to final departure. Rooms were great and the outdoor patios a great asset for a visiting group. Restaurant service and meals were tops. Office staff went overboard to help.
