This hotel is a great place to stay. From the moment I checked in until the time I left we where made to feel welcome. We stayed 3 nights. Our package included breakfast . The room was huge. We where only meant to have a queen bed but they gave us a king. Quiet rooms, it's not like we were in the room all day. It is right in the city , so close to everything. Room has Internet access and they also have a gym and a pool. I must also mention Mike's seafood take away next door . Best fish and chips. Over all this place is great and for the mid week deal we got cheap. We will be back. 09/10.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom water view apartment during an unseasonal week of glorious weather

When we arrived at the hotel we were surprised that no one offered to help us with our many bags. My husband made do with the luggage trolley. Not too much of a big deal, but we had a lot of luggage given our 3 year old.

Our apartment had beautiful views over the river and towards the ocean. My overall impression was that many of the furnishings were a bit shabby, which was not what I was expecting. For example, the room compendium had been drawn through by a previous occupant/ toddler, The coffee table was stained and scratched, the lamp shades were threadbare in part, our lounge room light flickered. It just needs a little bit of attention and maintenance.

But the bed was really comfortable and the location fantastic. However it was a bit noisy on the friday night given the location near the pub with a live band - luckily child is heavy sleeper. The restaurant facilities don't cater for families, however there are plenty of other options in walking distance.

Lastly I was a bit sad that room service did not include any desert options. I had been looking forward to being pampered and being able to order cheesecake for 9pm delivery. Boo

This was my second trip to Port Macquarie and again stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (during May), The service was good, and the apartment expansive and clean. It still is the best accommodation in Port with uninterupted views and walking distance to all shops and cafes. Never needed to take the car out once on our 5 day stay.

The apartments are privately owned and could be a little better equipped, however had everything you needed (as opposed to wanted) ... but I certainly wouldn't stay anywhere else. The pool is great, overlooking the water.

Room Tip: All apartments are on higher levels and have uninterruped views, and very expansive.

This was our second hotel we used on our east coast trip. We used this hotel for the 1 night as part of our trip from Sydney to Cairns but wish we could have stayed longer. Great location on the water front and a short walk from the harbour and the trips on offer. Parking available but we opted for the front of hotel on street parking as we were moving on early the next day so would be gone before the wardens arrived. Very comfortable room and friendly and helpful staff. Wish we could have stayed longer to appreciate the hotels other offerings.

This hotel was great value. It was modern, the room was spacious and well furnished and although I was only there for 1 night I'd come back for a longer stay. Looked like it had a nice pool area and my room overlooked the lakes which was great. They had a lively bar onsite which was busy and looked good. Location was excellent right in the heart of everything too. It was a stop off on a very rainy night for me whilst driving Sydney - Brisbane, but I'd come back again for a longer stay so I could enjoy the great hotel more.

Great hotel, parking included in my package ,- usually $10 a day.
Bar and restuarant too busy for a quiet drink, couldnt get table for dinner for 1 for at least 45mins, so went to the pub next door and had a great meal.

Right on the river/water front, very popular spot and great outlook, across the road from police station so on street parking should be safe, but times monitors by parking inspectors so be careful.
