Having read the mixed reviews of this establishment my partner and I decided to try it anyway, and BOY are we glad we did!

Top level apartment provides a FULL kitchen, which is so very handy when deciding not to splurge on take out as your able to cook a full meal with ease. Apartment was clean and crisp in presentation, must have been privately owned because the diverse arrangement of utensils and furnishings was a sight to behold. Beautiful views outside at all hours of the day when you can peel your eyes off the massive plasma screen tv. Much appreciated the King bed in the master bedroom, soooooo comfortable! And had a plasma on the wall as well!

Being frequent visitors to Port Macquarie sometimes it was just nice to rent a movie and relax in the apartment rather that go out and explore the area outside like we have done so many years in a row. We love the BBQ area by the pool on the bottom floor and its a pleasure to bask in the sun on your particularly large private balcony!

Having tried and tested many of the accommodaiton options in Port Macquaire, we come back to this one every time. Whether it be a long weekend away or an indulgent week or more spent winding down, simply wonderful experience always!

Room Tip: Pure luck that we have gotten the same room the 'Wilgadene' got in their review, our definit...

Just returned from 2 nights in an 8th floor apartment. Secure under building parking. Large apartment with very large balcony overlooking the beautiful waterways of Port Macquarie. Apartment furniture a little tired and in need of replacement. Comfy bed and big screen TV. Our west facing balcony got a little hot and glarey during late afternoon - so ask for north or east facing if available. Check in was late - 3:00pm and check out way too early at 9:30am. Very strange when the office didn't open till 10:00am on Sundays.

We just had 2 nights at Northpoint. We only decided to go away at the last minute in the peak holiday season. So we choose this accommodation in a bit of a hurry. We rang to do the booking and the manager told us we had a penthouse apartment well it was on the 8th floor with great views but definitely not a penthouse apartment. The owner also likes a big deposit like $300 so beware if you did change your mind you will loose the deposit. Most travel booking websites these days need no deposit. Also on arrival he wants the full balance. Also another weird thing is the opening hours of the office for check in and departure. So don't be late you will be locked out. Check out of the apartment is 9-30 in the morning which tends to spoil a weekend escape when its that early and the manager is not even at the office till 10am. On the plus side apartments are very spacious and most have wonderful views of port Macquarie and the location is very good. The furniture is a little on the shaby side for what they are charging and towels very thin and old. I think in Port Macquarie you can do better than Northpoint apartments.

Room Tip: I would choose an apartment that is North East facing. We had west facing and the afternoon sun made...

We have stayed in apartment 903 (3 bedroom 2 bathroom) a number of times now and it impresses everytime. On our last visit we were pleasantly surprised to find new beds which included a king in the master bedroom. A brand new 42" plasma screen TV with blu-ray DVD player and wall mounted plasma in the main bedroom made watching television, especially the tennis and cricket in January, enjoyable. With its generously equipped kitchen - no shortage of cutlery, plates, cooking utensils,quality pans, sharp knife block set and steak knives it was easy to whip up a meal when required. Coupled with the modern furniture and motel style decor (white striped sheets with bed runners and lumbar support pillows on the beds, the expansive water views from the living area and balcony and 2 of the bedrooms, we thought this unit was good value for money. The location, cleanliness, friendly management and your own laundry with washing machine and dryer, along with the facilities of the Northpoint Apartments all made for a very relaxing stay. The designated BBQ area with community kitchen and table tennis table was a nice touch.

Room Tip: Apartment 903 is on the top floor and has excellent water views up the Hastings River and along the...

Very good security and great location for shops and restaurants which are all within very easy walking distance.
If you want a nice view then you need a high floor and the best units for views (in my opinion) are XX1 and XX7 the higher the floor the better the view.
Water pressure is a problem and also the hot water temperature has not been set high enough to have a good shower. It is not possible to adjust the temperature higher yourself as it is thermostatically controlled at a low temperature to save electricity.
Under building secure parking is free. Internet fee is charged if you require a Wi Fi connection.
Rooms are a very good size and the very large balcony is excellent.
You must remember that all units are individually owned so they will all be furnished differently so some units will be in excellent condition and others not so good as it just depends on the owner of the unit.

The staff couldn’t do enough to make our stay most pleasant. We spent 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom ocean view. Very well maintained, clean accommodation both internal and external. Pool area has ample deck chairs to cater for all, pool maintenance everyday very visible. Perfect location, great facilities and caters for all requirements from restaurants, cafes to shopping centres etc. I have stayed at most properties in Port Macquarie over the years and the new owners at Northpoint have the best staff and service standards. Congratulations to the management and staffs for caring about your guests and making them feel welcome. Keep up the great work. If you’re looking for a fantastic experience, excellent service and accommodation you cannot look past Northpoint.

We stayed here for 4 days at the end of November in a 3 bedroom apartment.
Apartments were spotless and the location was perfect. Restaurants in this little city are great also.
Would definitely return for a relaxing break.
