We stayed on the Thursday night before good Friday. We were not advised when booking if where to park whilst checking in. There is no parking available. You can park on the street if you can manage to find one. We ended up stopping in a no parking zone to allow us to check in. Upon check in the room...

I'm not sure what I did to upset the folks at the Rydges, but I was certainly treated as a non-priority customer. I used my United Mileage plus points to book the room, and perhaps it was because it was a cashless Reso, but I was not treated as I usually am in at the Rydges. We arrived early and...

Thanks for your review and my apologies that your recent stay did not meet expectations. I have followed up with our reception team and the booking was for a standard king room but was moved to a twin room (two beds) I am not sure if it was requested or to enable an early check in but these tend to...

We stayed for one night in a twin room, corner room overlooking the water. Absolutely beautiful. Great location, walk to pretty much everything. Food in the bar/grill was lovely. Staff we extremely helpful. We have stayed once before and this second stay has confirmed that each time we visit Port Macquarie we will definitely be staying here.

We only stayed one night in the King Premier Room. Our view onto the esplanade was beautiful. The room was super large, the king bed is super comfy, the washroom was clean and the staff were helpful and nice. The pool looked inviting but we didn't have enough time to enjoy it. The only minor negative was when flushing the...

This hotel is located right by the Hastings River. On a sunny day it is just beautiful. Dolphins frolicking by the edge and fruit bats flying overhead at dusk. The showers are very good and the rooms are comfortable, but in need of some decor updating. My only complaint is the very expensive price for a new release movie hire......

Fabulous experience. Literally the best shower in the world! Bar and Grill was excellent, included 20% discount for members (free to join). Secure underground parking for $10, Lift to all floors. Choice of City or ocean views. Fantastic. This will be our "port of call" for every trip Sydney to Brisbane. Kathryn on the desk was outstanding.
