Friendly staff, great location. This place is well worth a stay, either overnight or longer. Good facilities - particularly liked the fact the hotel had a well equipped gym. I have stay at a range of other hotels, apartments etc in Port Macquarie and this is my favourite.

We arrived at Rydges Port Macquarie quite late in the afternoon after driving down from the Gold Coast, the check-in process was quite quick but we weren't able to get underground parking but managed to get street parking directly in front of the hotel. I was offered a $60 for a twin deluxe room with 2 x Queen beds but...

This is no doubt the best location in Port Macquarie , well set out and full service hotel. Unfortunately it does run a busy bar/restaurant and is located next to the Royal Hotel. Both of which are noisy, especially the Royal and its nightclub vibe pumping out music. In the morning the breakfast venue also has that pub smell and...

This is located at the heart of the city. I stayed 1 night with the family. Room was ok. Facilities seems ok. But i had to pay for under ground parking. I have a feeling this may be touch expensive for its facilities. If i come back to Port Macquarie, i will do more research to see if i can...

I expect The Rydges are always of good value, their prices vs their quality matches, we always enjoy our stay, restaurants at the Rydges are always good, buffet breakfast etc. The Rydges at Port Macquarie didn't fail the Rydges standard, great place with friendly staff and great breakfast. Nice pool area with large spa, good heated pool. Large appartments with...

Stopped here for a night on the way down the coast.

After travelling from Sydney to Port Macquarie it was a pleasure coming to a motel that had all the amenities required, clean, spacious rooms and all those extras you expect from a motel like Rydges. Only concern we had was parking, maybe as it was school holidays?
