Fodor's Review

The most stylish digs in Port Macquarie are just a short walk across leafy parkland to the city's main beach. This luxe complex has a mix of oceanview rooms and balcony apartments along with two swish penthouses with expansive terraces. Apartments have full kitchens, while the on-site restaurants Scampis (for lunch, takeout, and seafood dinners) and Milkbar (for lunch and breakfast) are consistently good. Sheltered barbecue facilities, on which you can throw a shrimp or

two and cook your own steak, are a bonus for those wanting to relax with a beer on a balmy summer night. A day spa, affordable Wi-Fi (A$5 a day), and free undercover parking round out the options.
