“A fantastic place to stay with two young kids!”
Reviewed 28 January 2010

The Beachcomber is a clean, friendly place to stay in Port Macquarie. Yes the pool is outstanding and safe with kids. The apartments are large and very well stocked. The BBQ area is impressive with all tableware provided. The beach is a 5 minute walk as well as coffee shop, newspaper and yoga on the beach every morning! We stayed here for 7 days with two kids and a very fussy mother-in law, who is otherwise extremely hard to be pleased.
The whole family had a brilliant time and we would like to go back next year.(without the mother-in law) I would reccommend

We stayed in the Beachcomber for a night on our way to Sydney. The hotel itself is in a very nice spot - close to the beach, and also close to the CBD in case you want to grab a meal or a snack. Our room was on the ground floor, which was a shame because we didn't have any sort of view of the ocean, but we couldn't fault the facilities. All the furniture was very clean and well maintained. The room was quite large and contained a kitchen and a good-sized bathroom. The TV was just what we were looking for after a long day on the road, and from memory there was a DVD player as well.

Although we didn't have time to use them, there was a big pool, a ping pong table and a games room for guests to enjoy as well.

All in all, I'd strongly recommend the Beachcomber to those looking for a nice, clean and well-maintained hotel room in Port Macquarie.

We had just come frm a hectic stay in Sydney CBD followed by 2 manky days in the Blue mountains.

Beachcomber resort was fantastic in every way, friendly welcome, secure parking, the apartment we stayed in was only just recently refurbished throughout including carpets etc (you could still smell the new carpet smell). It was also immaculate, couln't fault the cleaning in any way.

Location was brilliant, 2 minutes to the town beach which is lovely for a walk, with a kiosk selling reasonable coffee. 5-10 minutes into the town by the road or a really nice leisurely 30-60 minutes round the promenade by the sea.

We only had 2 nights here but I could have happily stayed for a week.

Just back from my third year staying at Beachcomber Resort. New managers but still high standards. Love the views from the balcony. The pool is the best around. Plenty of room for all ages. When the sun goes down enjoy a relaxing spa. BBQ areas clean and really well set up. Rooms are light and airy with plenty of living space. Ours even had a spa bath. Walks are great. 5 minute walk down to Town Beach, 5 minute walk to shops. Plenty to do at the Port. Already booked for my fourth year.

We only had a night here on the way up the coast and unfortunately it was torrential rain the whole time we were there but that wasn't the resort's fault!!

The apartment was so lovely and so well equipped for a family with three children. The rooms were very comfortable and there was a full kitchen as well as a washer and a dryer in the bathroom.

The rest of the resort looked lovely too but sadly we didn't have a chance to make the most of - maybe another time.

The staff were very friendly and the car parking was secure.

It was also very centrally located for the beach and other amenities.

I would think it would be a great place for a family to stay.
