Very Good Location”

We really enjoyed the central location and the spacious room. We are a group of 4 ladies on a holiday so the spacious room is really a plus for us given that we have lots of luggage. 😂 The hotel is complete and the rooms are clean. What we enjoyed most is the short walk to restaurants, the beach, and the beautiful sunset right outside the hotel.

Great short break at Rydges Port Macquarie”

Rydges Port Macquarie is in a top location to take easy advantage of the best of Port Macquaries walks, beaches, bars and restaurants. Every Hotel member of staff provided us with wonderful professional personal service in a genuine pleasant manner during our visit. The Hotel although not new was in very good condition and our room was very spacious and comfortable. We had our hotel breakfasts in the attached Zebu Bar and Restaurant and again all staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The views from the Zebu combined with the great service , food and décor gave us a great start for our daily adventures. Rydges being located almost on the Hasting River break wall walk (as it meets the ocean) gave us the opportunity to take totally relaxed walks. Our tips to make the best of your visit is to book the Hotel early and to ensure you not only take the breakfast option but also secure one of the hotel's limited parking spots and book your restaurants early.

Great Location with Comfy Bed”

The hotel is starting to show its age but that is no deterrent and the location is perfect. Under cover parking is available for an additional fee. Even though it is a non-smoking hotel, upon late afternoon check-in, the third floor corridor did smell heavily of cigarette smoke, though thankfully the odour had gone by morning. Our room was nice and spacious with a view over the breakwater. We were even lucky enough to spot a couple of Dolphins from our room. The king bed and pillows were very comfortable. For those less agile note that the room had an step-in bath with shower combination, with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. It would be great to see the bathrooms updated and modernised to a nice showers in the rooms without the bath. The reception staff and bar staff were all very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We would have no issue with staying here again.

Great location however rooms on the first floor with balcony look straight into the pool area , so try not to get those as when you open your curtains people are looking straight into the room. We booked a king room with balcony and couldn’t use the balcony as there were no table and chairs.
