Once again a great experience at the Rydges Port Macquarie, staff could not be more helpful in all areas from Reception to the Zebu Bar and Restaurant, room was great with a lovely view overlooking the water to the north.

We stayed at the Rydges because of previous experience and location to the Whale Watching service Port Jet.

Room tip: North Side Room with a Balcony for view of the Port.

The hotel was clean, tidy and the room had all the requirements for an overnight stop. We ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious, and the staff very attentive. But, don't depend on your gps to get you there, the address listed is wrong, it took us over an hour to find the hotel, and even after calling for directions, we still missed it as it was not lit up in any way. It also annoys that there is a car parking fee as there was no where in the vicinity that had free parking. Don't know if we would stay there again.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel Sarah C. Apologies for the difficulty you had in finding the hotel; we are at 1 Hay Street however there is a shopping centre that divides Hay Street which does not show on some navigation systems. Regarding our parking charges, we only have limited spaces that are leased to us so there is a small charge of $10 per night to use our off street parking. I’m glad you enjoyed our Zebu Grill; they have a delicious new menu that has already proven to be popular.
Warm regards,
Sarah

I couldn't fault any part of the overnight stay. The only thing I would comment on is having to pay $10 for parking. I don't have a problem with this except that it wasn't secure parking so I didn't think having to pay was necessary but on the whole it was great. Rydges is my choice of accommodation.

Clean and tidy with all the trimmings. Great value for money for the business traveller. The 'king' bed being two king singles pushed together is ok for one but would annoy me if I had been with my partner. Must remember to check that next time when booking in. Fantastic location surrounded be excellent food options. The Thai round the corner rocks!

I stay at the Rydges in Port Macquarie a few times a year for Business, and highly recommend it. The staff are always friendly, as are most people in Port, its a great town & a great Hotel. I like teh bar and teh restuiarnat downstaiors, they have a beautiful outlook over the river, theres always pelicans and other birdlife. This is a perfect

Room tip: Pay teh $10 for parking, its not easy to find a lparking spot longer than an hour nearby, as ist in the middle of town.
