The rooms are bright and sleek, the staff friendly and the term balcony did not do justice to the outdoor facility of our room. All in all the Observatory is a fantastic place to stay in Port Macquarie. It's located just off the beach and close to the town center with its lovely restaurants, cafes. The Koala Hospital and Rota House is a short walk."TripAdvisor
We stayed at The Observatory In Port Macquarie for our annual family holiday. We booked 4 rooms and everyone had a great time! The location is very convenient (across the rd to the town beach) and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to book accommodation in Port Macquarie."TripAdvisor
We love coming to The Observatory Hotel. The warmth that surrounds you in every way makes you feel like you have found a sanctuary from your trials of every-day life. We arrive feeling old and leave feeling young. We think it’s the best hotel in Australia. Thank you to management and staff for making our stay so wonderful."TripAdvisor
