Positive Reviews

Nice View

Some of the rooms overlook the Hastings River and guests who stayed in these rooms described the views across the water as very relaxing. Guests also left tips for future visitors to make sure that they request one of these rooms.

Good Location

The hotel is convenient to downtown Port Macquarie and guests were happy that they were able to leave the car and walk to local restaurants, bars and local attractions during their stay.

Spacious Rooms

Guests commented that they felt that the rooms at the hotel were bigger than the average hotel room with many commenting that they appreciated the extra space and that the rooms were well appointed with modern amenities to make their stay comfortable.

Negative Reviews

Limited Parking

Parking at the hotel is offered on a first come, first served basis and if arriving late it is unlikely that there will be a spot left.  Guests who could not get parking at the hotel were very fristrated and wrote about this in their reviews.

Boring Decor

Guests felt that the decor in their rooms and throughout the hotel was boring describing the furniture as basic and uninspiring. Although functional guests commented that the hotel could do a bit better with the decor to make the hotel more welcoming.

Musty Smells

Guests who are sensitive to pungent odours left less than positive comments about the hotel with some describing encountering mouldy and musty smells particularly in the bathroom as less than desirable.
