We stayed at the Rydges for 7 nights. We had a room overlooking the river and waking up to the beautiful view in the morning was excellent. Also used the pool which was lovely and enjoyed the bar downstairs. The location in the CBD makes it easy to walk around town and the staff were friendly and helpful. We would...

Stayed at the Rydges Port Macquarie this last week, with my daughter. What a great location and hotel this is. We had a great time. The pool is excellent and provides great enjoyment for the kids and adults. We were very happy with our room and the environment. The restaurant experience was good with plenty of options. This hotel is...

Visited last week and were really surprised at the disappointing experience at Rydges Central City. We have stayed many Rydges before so booked here for a 1 night stay for personal function in Port Macquarie, wish I hadn’t now. 2 rooms booked at average $230 per room inc breakfast, top money for a hotel in Port Macquarie. First conversation when...

Stayed for 2 nights with my family of 5. Kids loved the pool area. The convenience of an endless supply of pool towels was fantastic. Service was very friendly and the hotel room very clean. We never dined at the hotel, so can't comment on the food. My only complaint was the lack of parking. We had to park on...

The online booking transaction was easy! The 'PRIORITY GUEST REWARDS' Program made promises it could not keep! Online check-in offered me preferences such as room type, view, floor etc. On arrival, I was informed that there was NO PARKING! My room was allocated as 317 which gave me views of the restaurant exhaust fan and very limited view of the...

Thank you for the review and I was most concerned to read your review of your recent stay at the hotel. Firstly my apologies for the inconvenience caused during your recent stay. We had a thunderstorm in the afternoon that tripped some of the air conditioners in the room and require a reset of the unit. Please don't hesitate to...

Stayed just after the new year. Was busy but never felt crowded. Family room was large, but we didn't have a view or balcony which was a bit disappointing. Zebu bar was great. Dined in the adjacent restaurant which is Abbie moe upmarket but got 20% off as a PGR member. Decor was a bit dated as per previous reviews...

We stayed at Rydges early January to shorten our drive from Gold Coast to Sydney. I have stayed at Rydges in Sydney and Melbourne and they have both been fantastic. I thought the Port Mac Rydges was extremely dated and underwhelming. Room was spacious but furniture was really old and our view was of the back of a shopping centre...

Let me preface this critique by saying how much I LOVE THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF PORT MACQUARIE. Now, to Rydges. Perhaps the management agreement has expired and Rydges are operating on a month to month basis? That might be the root of the problem. Another possibility is management cut backs. Shaving the bottom line, thus placing a heavy and unfair...

2 Nights - $770 and the closest parking you can get is over a Klm away and the Mangers response was bad luck Even if you are Rydges Members it doesn't matter there are only less than 50 spaces for more than 90 rooms and the Hotels attitude is "tough". I will not be using Rydges again and cancelling my...

We stayed for one night, a last minute decision during school holidays so paid for it accordingly. I have to say the location is great, walking distance to restaurants and shops right on the foreshore. The place was fully booked given the holidays. I booked a standard king balcony. Be warned, it is right next to the pool so unless...
