Beautiful hotel in the most amazing location.. The best bed and pillows i have ever slept in. Breakfast was huge and a great price. Thank you for a great stay. Carpark was easy to use and really you dont need a car once you get here as there is so much to do in walking distance

This hotel is probably the most central hotel in Port Macquarie. Walk to the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. The bed was super comfy and the air conditioning perfect. I would highly recommend booking this hotel if your coming to port macquarie. Parking available underneath too.

We stayed in the 2 br water view apartment. Views to die for - grassy walk along the foreshore. Gorgeous pool and spa and delicious food. Parking included and late check out for Rydges members makes Rydges a favourite for me.
