Driving up from Sydney this was the obvious choice for a stopover. It's a shame that the food was only average because the only other negative was the cost of .a movie $18.95 and $10.00 to park the car . On a brighter note the the bed,pillows,bathroom,shower were all good.Couldnt see any stationery to use and the room was a...

We stopped over on the way to Sydney for one night. A lot of positives about this hotel. The rooms are incredibly large. They include two queen sized beds, ive never stayed anywhere where the rooms are not only bug, but include big beds too! They were comfortable with quilts and pillows, lovely. If i had known i would not...

Booked online with credit card details through Rydges direct however the card was not charged for some reason. I now know that this is because they wish to add a parking charge for each day, as well as an additional credit card charge. When will the hospitality industry realize that accepting credit cards is a cost of doing business! I...

The staff at Rydges could not have been more helpful too us, from checkin to checkout they were always polite, friendly and happy. Our room was 414, over looking the pool and river.... Just beautiful. It was not noisy, and to sit on the deck with a wine and people watch was great. The room was very clean, the beds...

Great location. Large tidy rooms - but feels like it needs a renovation. Good bar and restaurant downstairs. If staying here make sure you take the time to walk to Flynns Beach - the path starts out the front of the hotel.

We regularly stay in Rydges hotels but this was our first time at the Rydges Port Macquarie. The hotel was predictably Rydges quality and easy to book and check out.
