We stayed two nights here and wished for longer. Everything about the hotel was professional and high standard. All staff encountered were pleasant and helpful. room rate was quite reasonable given that it was so nice. There is secure undercover parking available but you have to pay $10. The room was nice and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Also it...

We stayed here in January. First mistake for us being seniors. The spa was always occupied by many children who use it as a bath, never had the bubbles going no supervision of them either. Noisy all day because of the pool and we had a balcony facing the water which meant the pool. Breakfast was only passable for us,...

We loved the location of this accommodation - you were able to walk absolutely everywhere and were close to restaurants and shops - BUT we were really unhappy with the hotel and amenities. We paid $588 for 2 nights in a twin room with our 2 kids and upon arrival were told if we wanted secure parking we would have...

5th Christmas at Rydges Port Macquarie and the location is amazing, with incredible views of the Hastings River and ocean. House keeping staff do a great job and are very accommodating. Reception staff are generally complacent and not overly welcoming. Should acknowledge guests as they enter the foyer and if Priority Guests get a free drink on arrival give it...

We stayed here for a night on the way back down the coast (end-of-holiday-denial), and had a great time. The hotel is situated on the estuary, which gives very easy access to the promenade, going all the way from the point down past the docks and around the bay. Great little walk. The hotel is a solid four stars, nothing...

We stayed here at Xmas break and we really enjoyed the stay. Breakfast was far better than expected. Poached eggs, wheatgrass juice, fresh juice on top of normal hot breakfast. We enjoyed walk along the river bank while just close to all the shops etc. We had nice swim in the morning in heated pool. Only thing is that car...

We stayed a week, rooms were clean and large and in a very good location. The wifi is very slow, but at least you get free wifi. The spa is great, but constantly had 5+ children unsupervised jumping around. Reception line was always busy but staff were good when you got them. An average experience, and despite a 2hr blackout...

The Rydges is in a perfect location close to town and basically on the beach. The service here is always pretty good and it is one of the better location within Port Macquarie. Most people staying here will appreciate that the fancier exterior, resturant and reception don't quite match up to the older, but slightly updated interior of the rooms....

I stay at Rydges P/M whenever I can and I'm never disappointed. Location is probably one of the best in Port, overlooking Hastings River, easy walk to town and Port Central, restaurants etc etc. Staff are always friendly and there is Zebu bar and a restaurant on site. Underground parking is available (maybe a fee depending on room type $10)....
