Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for two nights, last weekend. It was a comfortable stay and well priced. Although our room was located near a busy road the noise wasn't too much of a bother. The room was mostly clean, although the floor tiles felt sticky underfoot. Bed was comfortable. Foxtel was good.

Haven’t stayed in an olde style motel for a while.... I’ve seen better beds on footage from Manus island .... plenty of dips and quilt style bedding you won’t see in 5 star places. Quant? Mmm I just don’t do motels as such sorry. There are other options in town but they were all booked out tonight. I don’t even understand why this motel is positioned where it is! There is nothing here.... 1.5k walk to the closest half decent place to eat..... yes there is a pub next door.... pass!

We arrived early as arranged told we had been upgraded but if we used the extra bed would be charged $20.oo told restaurant was closed due to been a public holiday told there is a bistro bar up road but did not know if serviced meals ??? Great information not !!! No wellcome at all given Well if this room was an up grade would not have liked the room we booked It was the worst sleep we have ever had mattress needs an up grade fast Told the worman at checkout desk no apology given only question asked have you used other bed and mini bar great customer service well never stay here again avoid if you can

Stayed with a group, and all accomodations, parking, access, etc. were good. Dinner wasn't open on this Saturday evening, so went next door to the "sports bar" for a very good meal. Would stay here again.

A beautiful place to stay. Room very clean and the bed comfortable. Friendly staff and great restaurant. Would highly recommend staying here. Not far from shopping and the water. Extremely good value for money paid.

Clean, tidy and comfortable. Being a weekend the restaurant was closed, which was a bit if a surprise, but there is a hotel with bistro a couple of hundred metres away. Lots of restaurants and clubs about 1.5 km away. Well priced mini bar and room service, with breakfast being served right on time. We would definitely stay there again.

After driving all day we were pleased to pull into this motel to spend the night. The chap at reception was very helpful, organising a room, offering milk for tea, and mentioning that dinner was available in the dining room or our own room. Our room was clean, well appointed and the bed was comfortable and firm, a real joy after having spent the past five nights on a spongy unsupportive bed. There was a blind to darken the room. We went to the dining room for dinner and the meals were very good and reasonably priced. The waitress was pleasant and really worked hard as the dining room was crowded. The one downside was the road noise but we were so tired we really did not care. Perhaps the rooms further back from the road are quieter. Overall, very happy with this motel.

Receptionist is rude(who is a female). Place is unorganised. Needs to work on customer service. Highly not recommended unless you want to woken up in the middle of the night saying your in the wrong room!

Stayed one night when passing through and found a great price and quality room. The bathroom and towels were of good standard and bed comfortable. Location was handy with settlers inn and bottle shop next door Will stay again.

Conveniently located on the outskirts of Port Macquarie. Room clean but queen size bed found uncomfortable as well as blanket on bed would have preferred a Doona encased in a cover. The pillows need to be a variety of soft and hard, mine were both firm. On a positive note the food in he dining room was very generous and most enjoyable for dinner. We did not stay for breakfast. The staff at checkin were friendly and restaurant staff also very pleasant.
