OK, like most reviews on trip advisor this is probably a little subjective. I acknowledge that given we'd just spent a week on level 54 of Q1 in Surfers, we might have a different view of "luxurious", which is how these apartments market themselves. In my view at best they can be described as comfortable. The furnishings were tired: faded framed prints on the walls, yellowing curtains, the coffee table was covered in marks, lounge suite on last legs etc - you get the picture.
What really was the worst 'tho was the price we paid, which was almost the same as what we'd paid for Q1 - hence the comparison at the start of this review.
Comfortable, but don't expect luxury or value for money.

Currently staying in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 9th floor which is very spacious and comfortable. The balcony is huge and has a recessed area for the table and 4 chairs which is more secluded from the elements. The view is spectacular on the eastern side facing the ocean and entry to the lake. Port Central shopping mall is over the road and you are within an easy walk to all of the shops and restaurants in the main part of town.

Room Tip: Tip. In the hotter months stay on the eastern side facing the ocean or you will bake in the afternoo...

Stayed here for three nights on eighth floor in a 2 bedroom apartment converted into a one bedroom. The room faced the swimming pool and had great views out to the north beach and inlet. The balcony was a good size to relax on. The room was a good size in the lounge- dining and the kitchen was also big enough and had every thing you need. Bedroom was ok but found the bed to be a bit too standard and firm but not unbareable. The location is in a good spot as it is only a short walk to shops ,restaurants and cinema etc, also a nice place to walk around in the sunset to the inlet. Staff were all friendly and made booking and check in etc easy. Room was clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: The 3 bedroom apartments also look very roomy, so families would have plenty of room not to get unde...

Absolutely loved staying here. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, ok so we didn't have a view, but who cares - the apartment was great. Large,clean and modern and well fitted out. In a great location, walk to main town area and restaurants. Loved Port Macquarie also, would definitely recommend Northpoint.

Really quite upset at paying $295 for one night in a two bedroom apartment.

The staff I interacted with over the phone and via text message were friendly and professional. This is where the good part ends.

We arrived after the 6pm office closure and our keys were left in the safe for us. No issues here, we got the keys and headed up to the apartment.

It's tired (think 1990's) the pillows on the beds are like rocks, no shower gel only soap, no washing powder for you to use the machine, dusty as well.

Compared to the $350 we paid last night at the Hilton on the Gold Coast, truly disappointing..

The Apartments were nice, we only had a courtyard view Apartment on the ground floor , so we had no view at all, Next time we would go to a higher level with a view.

I thought the ground around the Apartments could have been maintained better, It was messy with all the pot plants around the BBQ area & they were not at all looked after. It could have been cleaner as well.

I really think that there would be nicer Apartments around for the same price.

They are in a good spot ,close to the city.

Room Tip: Don't stay on 1st floor ,unless you have children that might want to use the pool often & yo...
