Mantra Quayside Apartments Port Macquarie
Ranked #10 of 42 Hotels in Port Macquarie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough to use the lovely roof pool but we used the roof top gym, it wasn't massive but did the job. There were barbecue facilities and seating up on the roof which looked really nice. We initially had a room on the front but found the traffic noise loud so asked to move to the back. The staff were very obliging and found a different room for us. Both rooms were clean and well equipped but the beds were only a standard double and felt small for a couple. The beds in both rooms were quite worn, soft and dipped in the middle. Unfortunately, it's not something you really notice until you go to bed.
Good location for walking in and around Port Macquarie.

Room Tip: Rooms are quieter around the back.

Thank your for your comments, we are happy to hear you enjoyed our location and it was a shame about the weather. We have taken on board your comments about the beds and have ordered a replacement, something we are currently doing with all the apartments. We do hope you choose to return to Port Macquarie and hope to see you here at Mantra Quayside again.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the accomodation was- spacious bedrooms, large family/kitchen are and a bathroom equipped with a washing machine (perfect after being on the road for the last few days).

Room Tip: As far as I can tell all rooms the same:)

Wow very impressive. On our quick book in by Nicole we were upgraded to a room with a patio Spa. Very clean/ great size and being in the middle of town on a busy corner very peaceful.
Loved the heated pool & BBQ area so did the kids.
Location was great for anything you would wish to do in Port Macquarie.
Had a major problem with Air Con not working on our first night (Friday) not only did they get a service man in late on a Friday to check it out but also got a 2nd opinion as well. (Blew a power board & could not be repaired)
Not only did we have Nicole regularly follow up with us but also night manager Jodi did as well, the next day they purchased a portable unit for the rest of our stay as it could not be fixed over the weekend. Very impressed that they went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.
Exceptional service by both ladies. Thank you very much.

Good apartments located in the middle of Port Macquarie. The rooms were quiet despite being on a really busy street and the roof top pool was an absolutely brilliant bonus. The apartments are located close to most things which was a bonus because we could walk. The beds however were a complete let down. Old, cheap nasty hard things that made my hips hurt and sagged in the middle. The name quayside is a little misleading too - you sort of expect a view of the water - we sort of got one but don't go here for that reason you will be disappointed. This place has got some good aspects but in my book the uncomfortable beds are unforgivable.

We stayed on a Saturday night in March. The place is appealing. The roof top pool and barbeque area (and gym) are well maintained and good for entertaining (not the gym of course..lol).

We met up with other couples staying in the same vicinity. I've got to say that the vista isn't very appealing (overlooking the cruddy old closed down supermarket) but I expect that will change in time. Other friends staying near the pubs etc were kept up all night. Our place was very peaceful.

It was a short stroll to restaurants and bars (and the waterfront.) All in all a very pleasant stay. This place is not a hotel, they are apartments, so you do have to do without some of the luxuries such as room service but this is great value for money, particularly for those that might be traveling with kids.

ps. The pool was heated, which was fantastic first thing in the morning after sharing a couple of glasses of wine with friends the evening before. :-)

Thank you for your detailed review, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your time in Port Macquarie and our apartments met your expectations. We also hope in time the building across the road will become something other than run down building it is at the moment.

We do hope you choose to return to Port Macquarie in the future and that you also return to Mantra Quayside.

The hotel is good, convenient, easy access to shops. Only thing is there is no dryer in the apt. It's located next to the lift. =( . Have to make sure to collect our clothes from the common area.
Room is clean, value for money though.
