We stayed a Friday and Saturday night. After travelling all day, we arrived in Port an hour before check-in. Called the hotel and they advised that our room was ready and to head on over which was great! Reception staff were very professional, friendly and really helpful, they ran us through everything that was available for guests and if there was anything else we needed.
Had a King Balcony Deluxe room and it was extremely spacious! The rom has everything you need and the fairly new decor made it feel more luxurious. Great sized, private balcony overlooking the pool and river.
Breakfast was a little overpriced as there was not a huge selection of hot food or juices but still delicious. Overlooking the river so again, great atmosphere.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, close to everything, easy to walk everywhere and overlooking the river. The pool and spa are lovely and very clean. Overall the hotel was very well kept.
The only small inconvenience was not enough parking on the Sat night. We are at a wedding until 11pm and when we got back there were no spaces left so didn't get to use what we paid for. Not a make or break though.
Overall, it was a great experience and we will certainly be making the Rydges our regular Port Macquarie accommodation.
We though the King Balcony was worth the money, the view was beautiful.

Many thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. Thrilled to read you enjoyed the stay with us - and that you enjoyed the wonderful river/ocean views from the balcony rooms as well. Noted your comments re breakfast and will review this aspect and change where we can.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel at some stage.
