WE had no time to investigate further due to an appointment elsewhere. On return to room later that day I noticed that the bed cover which should... More

Rooms are a little dates, BUT comfort is fantastic. Restaurant fro dinner was well priced and services was great. Breaky was brilliantly put together and presented well. Great value for money spent. If we are in the area we will be staying again.

A road trip from Brisbane to Sydney with the dreadful state of the Pacific Hwy (for years now due to never-ending roadworks) necessitated an overnight break in Port Macquarie. The Best Western Macquarie Barracks looks like a standard Aussie country motel from the street, but there are some thoughtful inclusions that elevate it a notch, including a well-stocked mini bar...

For our overnight stay, this place was perfect. Great service and great food in the restaurant. Room was clean and well maintained, service was excellent. Free internet was good for the kids. We could plug our media player into the TV so all was good.

I booked this through Qantas Hotels. This is not a fancy motel but is well situated, although a bit noisy. My room was large and had everything I needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had the continental breakfast which for $10 was good value. I'd recommend this place.

This motel is within a 5 minute drive to Port Macquarie CBD, foreshore and clubs. The room was well appointed and clean and although on a busy road was very quiet. Breakfast and evening meals are available in their restaurant.

Extremely Clean, all you needed in room. Comfy bed, chair/table, microwave, TV, free wifi. Friendly Front Counter Staff. Can't comment on the Restaurant as was closed at weekends. Only stayed a night and was raining when we left so did not see if there was a pool. Not far from Central Port Macquarie. Would stay again
