Rydges Port Macquarie

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Attended a two day conference here together with a three night stay. The hotel is very well appointed and has a great location on waterfront night in the centre of town. The room was huge and included the usual inclusions. All in all quite a pleasant stay.

This hotel is located in a very central part of the CBD within walking distance to many great restaurants down town. Recommend underground parking as on street parking was limited. Reception was straight forward and functional. The rooms were large but very dated with everything from carpets to fittings needing a refresh as they were simply worn out and tired.

To be fair this hotel is STILL under renovation. However this doesn't have any effect on the down right arrogance and none apologetic approuch of staff. We have stayed at what we all in this area know as Sails Resort. I have even orginised a conference here some years ago. I know that a lot of those attendees often ask me when are we going back to sails as they all agreed it was the best location. So last weekend i desided as we had a work fuction in Port Macquarie to stay at sail to see how it looked after the renovations this is what we experienced. The room appear to have been renovated from the Ikea bargain bin. Faults fire alarm went for 30mins at 3am no aplogies. Not enough towels in room (1) no aplogies just said you should have called us. We only noticed when we need them. Meals are prepared in trucks and caravans in car park. This is a beautiful location and the pool area is great to relax. But would I recommend it the my business friend and travellers. No way very disappointing

We arrived to find we were put in a standard room. My partner rang to complain and was assured that we would be contacted at a specific time. However this did not eventuate. We are members of the the hotel chains priority club which made no differnce. Very disappinted.

Surprised by the huge bedroom. Two large beds which were comfortable. Location was perfect right on the river. Reception staff were attentive and helpful. Top quality cleanliness and standards throughout

A quality hotel in a lovely location. The staff are simply friendly, helpful and unassuming. The hotel is directly on the sea front and if you lucky you can see dolphins in the harbour directly outside the hotel at dusk. The rooms are modern and the bed is very comfortable. All the expected facilities are present. The only niggle I have is the main restaurant and the on site bar/bistro. The restaurant menu is quite restricted in comparison with the bistro. The bistro offers a wide selection and superb value.

Wow, what can I say about this place? If you want accomodation with great service, fabulous amenities and amazing onsite dining, this is the place. Arriving late on Thursday night, check in was a breeze and was in my room in no time. The reception staff member at the time was very efficient and service was with a smile. The next morning for breakfast at Zebu was there standard fare of food, but it was the welcoming attitude of the staff from the front of house and the chefs greeting the diner was a welcome change and very forthcoming. Very rare in my opinion these days. The hotel is in the best location in town and has great bars and restaurants nearby. Parking is downstairs and secure with room key access so be assured on your car being safe. The room I had was big and comfortable, the bed being Rydges quality and if you've been in one recently, you won't be disappointed. Overall, definitely staying here again for work or leisure and I can't wait to come back

Firstly let me say that the reception staff are amongst the best I have ever come across, I was impressed by their friendly manner and eagerness/willingness to assist. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with ocean view, which was sensational and spacious with it's generous sized 2 x bedrooms, 2 x bathrooms, large well equipped kitchen, dining and lounge room. The apartment was clean and furnishings well maintained, bedding was very comfortable. As for the location, well it's right amongst it all, everything is within a short walking distance. Highly recommend and look forward to staying here again.

Perfect location, shopping centre 5 minutes away, easy access to all amenities, rooms are clean and impressed with them having the option to go green and not have your room cleaned every day and be rewarded with a $10 voucher at the end of your stay. The cleaning staff greet you when passing by, the counter staff pleasant, I stayed for 6 days I found I didn't need my car unless going out of town, I walked everywhere.

Stayed for one night on business. Parking underground is $12.50. Reception very helpful. Rooms pretty average..does need a makeover I think. Ate at the restaurant, which was ok. Right in the middle of Port Macquarie, so the location is great. I had heard so much about Rydges I was slightly underwhelmed. Would I stay again? Maybe...maybe not.
