“Great location and value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

My partner and I loved the hotel & the location. We stayed in a river view room overlooking the Hastings river. What a beautiful view! Room was very clean and comfortable. We swam in the pool every day and were able to walk up to the mouth of the river, via the break wall. It was such a relaxing stay. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We cannot rate this lovely hotel highly enough. We will definitely be staying again, as the position and value for money was so handy in Port Macquarie !!

Stayed here with my partner for 3 days on a recent trip to Port Macquarie and we really enjoyed our stay. We booked on Wotif for $139 for a river view room, and weren't disappointed. What a lovely view to wake up to each day. Great location, clean rooms and very friendly staff. We ate in the restaurant one of the evenings we were there and we had the seafood platter between us. It was delicious. I will definately be returning to this hotel when we return to Port Macquarie.

Room Tip: Choose the river view room. Has a beautiful view over the river

Stayed here late December..excellent location, clean pool,wonderful deck overlooking the water, happy hour very clean rooms plenty of hot water,however, the mattress in our room really could do with a replacement(such a dip in the middle) excellent front desk staff, overall a great stay and would definitely recommend, a great place to park the car and walk everywhere.

We had booked 2 rooms to stay in Port for the local fireworks in January. found out on the morning of he scheduled fireworks that the fire ban prohibited the event. Rang to cancell and explained the circumstances... reception staff were understanding, but when referred to "manageement" the response was "cancellation within 48 hours of booking or pay for both rooms". Thanks to staff persistance the situation was alleviated and the booking for one room needed to be postponed. NEVER will go back.

Many thanks for taking the time to post your feedback. As our friendly reservations team already explained to you; we do have a 48 hour cancellation policy, as do most hotels through out the world. With our 48 hour cancellation policy, any rooms cancelled within 48 hours prior to arrival, will incur a charge of the first nights accommodation. Unfortunately, the cancellation of the fireworks was beyond our control and as you have stated, we did cancel one of the rooms for you free of charge, and let you move the other reservation to another night, which I feel to be very leniate considering we were fully booked for the night. I hope this clarifies our cancellation policy for you. Once again, thank you for feedback. Kind regards, Corinne Adams

Great location,nice pool and playground for children.
Fantastic deck area for drinks overlooking the Hastings river and part of the port.
Rooms clean and comfortable but a little dated.
Only a short walk to town,shops,resturants ect.
Markets every second Saturday of the month close by, and worth a look.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a river view room, nice views and very close to the water.

The reception staff were polite, room average, pool pretty nice. Booked at the last minute so was pretty happy with what we could get in holiday season. Be aware that if your room faces the main road it's pretty noisy. Overall, not too bad.
