We loved our hotel room and the hotel located on the water in the heart of town. We were on the third floor and we had an amazing view of the water and the price was very reasonable. The hotel also had a little gym with a view of the pool and was very bright and clean. The pool was also great and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. The front desk staff was very helpful with arranging activities for my two daughters. The lounge and restaurant had an great vibe and excellent food. Free wifi in the lounge area which my girls loved! Definitely a winner for a hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you reserve a water view as it's definitely worth the upgrade.

Situated on the water and close to so many attractions made this place an ideal choice for a short break. The hotel has a good restaurant and very spacious rooms. The bed is supremely comfortable. The bathroom was sparkling and had a decent shower and bath.
Whilst reception staff were perfunctory restaurant staff were friendly and obliging.

We booked at the Rydges expecting a standard queen room, when we mentioned it was our 18th Wedding Anniversary we were upgraded to a king room. The room had a great view over the river and the ocean at Port Macquarie, the room was very clean and well appointed, everything worked and the room was serviced regularly during our stay. Our only issues was the bathroom, a hotel of the standard and quality should have more than just a shower over a small bath. A hotel of this standard should have a more modern air-conditioning unit that doesn't with a "thump" large enough to rattle the door! The other problem was the over zealous nature of the cleaners who, despite the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door insisted on disturbing us not once but 3 times before 10am on the morning of our anniversary!!!!
Despite this we would stay again.

A tranquil view awaited us of the river as well as Ocean views - really beautiful and totally relaxing. Situated in the centre of Port Macquarie and within walking distance of restaurants and attractions we enjoyed a relaxing 6 days in our King suite. Only downer is the parking at $10.00 per day for an undercover space. Kebus do the best coffee we have tasted in an age. Our 1.00pm checkout was an added bonus.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor facing NNE.

Booked on Rydge's website as a priority member for one night a studio room $138. On arrival the reception staff were friendly and helpful with explaining parking procedure. The room on the 7th floor was very spacious and clean my only concern was it directly overlooked the car park of the nearby hotel and drive through bottle shop. However being mid week this was not a problem.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant with an wonderful view overlooking Port Macquarie break wall and ocean. The restaurant is a little in the higher price range, we had no complaints as the food and service were both 1st class as was breakfast the next morning. Would recommend Rydges Port Macquarie only next time would opt for an upgraded room overlooking the water.

Room Tip: Request a room 7th floor or above and not overlooking the Pub or Bottle Shop car park. if possible spend some extra dollars for a water view room we didn't and regret it.
