“ideal for a 7 night stay for us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

Apartment very clean, bright, airy. We were there to compete in Ironman Triathlon. Most helpful, friendly staff organized down stairs room, plus extra keys as we were not always on site at same time (out training along beautiful coast). Owen Street meets part of IM course, at beach. 1.6 km from Town Centre so a bit far for multiple trips if you did not have your own car (which we did have). No free wifi but City Library is easy walk distance. Just a really pleasant atmosphere. We are 60-64

Room Tip: If you are there to race, ask for down stairs room, to make easier movement of bike in and out.

Arrive to find two bedroom room appartment with blocked toilet. Manager rude and arrogant should not be dealing with people told us we would have to use outside toilets in the car park. Plumber arrived and was told it was temporarily fixed, however, toilet still did not flush properly so husband was forced to got tot carpark toilet in middle of night. No compensation for any inconvenience. Manager voiced, not his problem, We are Regular visitors to Port Macquarie. Will NOT stay here again.

Firstly we apologise for any inconvenience caused by the blocked plumbing. However I do believe we had it repaired and back in working order in less than 2 hours after the blockage was reported. Also remeber this was a Anzac Day public holiday. The plumber assured me the toilet was good to use overnight, but in the case of another blockage there was toilet outside which could be used. The plumber also advised he would return the next morning to complete the repairs and he was good to his word.

Again we apologise for any inconvenience this matter has caused.

Stayed here for a stopover and found it great. We booked the 3 bedroom apartment, plenty of space for large family. Everything you need in a room, BBQ area looked lovely.
Would Definately use again if travelling to Port Macquarie.

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. Yes Port Macquarie and cockroaches go hand in hand at certain times of the year - especially when the weather is wet.

To avoid this we have the property treated at least twice a year and the advice the pest controller gives us is to provide spray cans to guests in the meantime.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Port Macquarie is a beautiful place to visit and had something for everyone. However Oxley Cove Holiday Apartments is NOT the place to do it from.

In all my travels I have never met a site manager/owner as rude and unplesant as Ian. The man has no place dealing with people & for the sake of tourism in Port Macquarie should probably be run out of town. I've never been treated so deplorably any anyone in my entire life & would urge anyone thinking of a trip to Port to steer clear of this establishment.

That being said, Port Macquarie is a great spot & should not be missed. My stay at Oxley Cove Apts was the only black spot on an otherwise great trip.

I am not sure what the problem was between the manager and yourself. I am sure if you could contact us the problem could be rectified.

We travelled as a group of 5 adults and 2 children (one a toddler so in our own portacot) My parents in law paid for all the accommodation, so we were happy to go along with their choice.

Pros:
Walking distance to beach and town
Clean and tidy
Pool and BBQ area
Price

Cons:
Cramped living spaces not ideal for so many guests and children. My nephew hit his head on the dining table and required treatment at hospital - his fault but the living area is packed tight with furniture.
One bathroom with so many was terrible, not even a separate toilet
Communal coin laundry
Tight car spots

Would I stay there again? No. But if you are on a budget, it's sufficient. And Port Macquarie is awesome.

If asked we advise guests all of our units have one bathroom only. We are sorry to hear of your child hitting his head and hope he has recovered from the bump.

We really enjoyed our one night at Oxley Cove Holiday Apartments. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The kids loved the pool and the location was really nice and quiet. Just a short walk to the beach and dinner options. Highly recommended.

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. It is a shame you could only stay one night. Maybe the next time you will be able to stay longer and enjoy what Port Macquarie has to offer.
