While in Port Macquarie, visited Town Beach, Flynn...

A very comfortable, well located, reasonably priced motel in Port Macquarie. The room was well designed for 2 single ladies, plenty of room to have our own space. El Paso is newly renovated so is light and bright. The gentleman in reception was delightful. Highly recommended.

Although this motel has been around for some time, the renovations have made it a very comfortable base to explore the area. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Its location is close to many dining establishments and coffee shops and takeaways which means you can walk to them. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends and...

This hotel was really pleasant, a little bit dated but quite nice none the less. I was a little disappointed that we had booked a room rate with breakfast included but our stay was during a weekend so unlike most hotels it was not available until 8am, by which time we had to leave. I was mostly upset at this...

Hi Elizabeth V, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our property although I am very sad to hear you did not enjoy Port Macquarie. I can assure you the people of Port Macquarie are in majority not as you experienced. I have lived here my entire life and wouldn't live anywhere else by choice,...

An old motel but recently has had a serious modern update to rooms and facilities. Great location in the centre of town, an easy walk wherever. The rooms are modest in size due to its age but comfortable. The breakfast room needs some rethinking as I found it congested.
