The hotel is nice with new amenities. But we had a bad experience. After getting back after a nice night in town watching a family movie with my daughter I noticed someone had messed up the bikes on the back of my car. 10 minutes later the police knocked on my door asking if everything was alright? It was just...

Very clean room with a great view. Very welcome and warm ambience. Close to shops, restaurants, pubs, cinemas. Internet is a minus but it's not necessary whilst busy with activities and surrounding area.

We stayed here for 4 nights over the busy New Year period. This motel is in a great spot, right in town, walking distance to everything. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and serviced daily. The included continental breakfast is a lovely light start to the day. You can order a more hearty bacon and egg breaky for a...

we booked 3 room. 2 were deluxe and one was standard. The standard was much cheaper and much nicer. not worth paying the extra for a deluxe at all. Standard was better location, less noise, much more roomer. and identical to the delux room, apparently the location of the rooms is what makes it more expensive Breakfast very basic but...

Hi Mia74_11, Thank you for your review. Its good to hear you enjoyed our rooms and central location. Just to clarify the difference between our deluxe and standard rooms. The two rooms types do have the same decor and facilities although there are some major differences. Our deluxe rooms are on the three storey section of our property, ranging from...

The El Paso is in a great spot, on the main street of Port Macquarie. You can walk everywhere you need, and with young children this is a bonus. The room we stayed has been recently refurbished, and was neat and tidy. Water pressure in the showers was amazing, which is a bonus in a hotel. I think the thing...

We spent three nights. The fare includes a (very) basic breakfast. The quality of the products is as low as you can buy. Only powder coffee available. For a proper coffee, a latte etc, you got to pay extra. We ended up having brekky elsewhere. The bedroom is clean and comfy, but essential. Maybe because of the festive season, we...

Hi Alex0tt0, Thank you for your review. In terms of the price, you did stay in our most peak season (Christmas/New Years Eve period). We have an extra surcharge on our tariff during this period, our rates outside of peak periods are much cheaper. In terms of the breakfast. We provide this at absolutely no extra cost to our guests....

Lived in port for 4 years previously so new El Paso quite well. Renovations have made this hotel a hot spot to stay. Great location, clean rooms and great breakfast options. Would definitely stay here again and recommend!

We have stayed at El Paso in the past so nicely surprised on the visit to find its rooms had been refurbished. Our room had been tastefully redecorated and fitted out with two armchairs, a comfortable double bed plus some quality curtaining that actually kept out the light. Bathroom had quality fittings while the shower provided a copious supply of...

I stayed here some years ago and just loved the central location of El Paso. There have been extensive renovations completed recently and it's now tastefully redecorated and the rooms are tasteful and comfortable. Easy to drive in and park off the main street. The location is excellent if you happen to be attending an event at the Glasshouse. Shops...
