Ana Mandara is just beautiful. Peaceful, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. Hosts Jennell and Leo are so warm and welcoming it was like a reunion with old friends. Leo prepared a truly delicious breakfast and wonderful seafood dinner. The waterfront location is a beautiful backdrop to a beautiful property, even the sunsets are spectacular. We would definitely recommend a stay at Ana Mandara and hope to return in the future. Greg and Vicki

We stayed for 4 nights at Ana Mandara for the Port Macquarie Ironman. It was a beautiful venue and we were so well looked after. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the jacuzzi with champagne, overlooking the water, after our event. Breakfasts were excellent too.

Ana Mandara means "beautiful refuge". We drove from Brisbane to Sydney and back and this is what Leo and Jenelle have created. Port Macquarie is the ideal stopover, and the peaceful outlook over the Hastings River watching dolphins and sea birds skimming over the water, is a perfect antidote to the trucks on the Pacific Highway. Their hospitality is first rate.

Hi Alison and Nick, Thank you so much for your fabulous review! We are spoilt with our quiet location opposite the river and away from the hustle and bustle of town. It does help guests relax, unwind and take in the action on the river. Our dolphins come out to play regularly and you both had the opportunity of seeing them from the terrace. Leo, our in-house Chef, loves to cook and it was great that you also took the opportunity to experience his culinary skills. Thank you both again, and we hope to see you on another getaway south. Travel safe and stay happy! Jennell and Leo

Leo and Janelle went above and beyond for us. We had honeymoon plans for Byron Bay and unfortuantely had to change our plans last minute due to the floods. Leo and Janelle took us in and made us feel right at home. Leo is an amazing cook with a great sense of humour. Janelle is the sweetest person who has the brightest and warmest smile all the time. We can't fault anything about the place even though the weather wasn't amazing, our experience was amazing. Can't wait to be back.

We were very well looked after from before we arrived when we were asked if we needed a lift from the airport. Jennell and Leo greeted us like old friends and made us very welcome. They were very accommodating when on both mornings we had to leave by 7am and got up to make breakfast for us.

From the moment of arriving and being warmly welcomed by our hosts, Jennell and Leo, through our entire stay, we were made to feel special. We chose the package which included the helicopter flight and luncheon and wine tasting at Cassegrain winery and were treated to an experience not to forget. If you are looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion, we highly recommend Ana Mandara.

I don’t always believe that things appear when you most need them, but when Ana Mandara Luxury Bed and Breakfast came to our rescue last minute my faith was completely refreshed in so many ways. Ana Mandara lives up to its name straight up – “a beautiful refuge”. Hours from home after an awful experience with another source of accommodation and ringing around the entirety of the seemingly completely booked out Port Macquarie late Saturday afternoon in panic; Jenelle’s pleasant voice answered my calling. With nothing but reassurance she gave us directions and waited for our arrival, greeting us with such elegance and positivity. Immediately our senses were blown away by the sheer cleanliness and beautifully sweet and earthly lemongrass that wafted through the air. The room was impeccable. King bed, quality linen, soft pillows and many personal touches that would be enough to touch any romantic. Fresh white roses from the garden greeted us with our daily linen change and room tidy. The bathroom was spacious, modern and fully decked out including aromatic bubble bath and salts for the spa bath. A beautifully peaceful area with breathtaking views of the calm and serene Hastings River, a warm inviting lounge area, beautiful garden touches all a stone’s throw away from Settlement Reserve. It is also only a short drive to Port’s shopping centers, restaurants, bars and beaches - the location couldn’t have been more ideal! If that isn’t enough to entice you, enter Leo. Leo is the resident chef, with a soulful personality and incredible talent absolutely nothing was too hard or a bother (including my dietary dislikes and allergies!) 3 course breakfasts awaited us each morning with the utmost highest quality fresh ingredients used. We also attended a 5-star dinner which was nothing short of exquisite. You really do not need to go looking for food places when the best is literally under the same roof. Jenelle’s coffee making skills are a delight to any coffee fanatic and her hot chocolates are nothing short of a big warm hug. Both of them went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed and really personalised the experience to all of their guests present. After an incredible 3 nights of pure calm and relaxation, being treated like absolute royalty the entire time - it was time to leave. The only disappointment we had was realising we couldn’t take Leo and Jenelle home with us. As hosts their hospitality is grand, but we also left feeling like we were saying goodbye to dear friends who genuinely cared about us every step of the way. I highly recommend Ana Mandara 110% and endeavor to return in the future! With many thanks, Laura and Steve xx
