Who doesn’t love a bargain, right? With the summer slowly but surely ending, me and my partner found ourselves looking for a short weekend break from the big smoke.
Looking for a place on the beautiful Central coast small enough to offer stunning, uncrowded beaches and nature all around but big enough to offer a great choice of restaurants and cafes to spoil even the picky foodie, we chose Port Macquarie. With its wineries, beautiful unspoilt National Parks, forests and kilometres of almost private beaches you can try coastal walks, surfing, sail boarding, snorkelling, fishing, whale watching and also horse riding. It locates midway between Sydney and Brisbane just off the Pacific Highway on the NSW Mid North Coast, at the mouth of the Hasting River, Port Macquarie is the city of refreshment. It is known for its extensive beaches, beautiful waterways as well as many attractions in the town and surrounding areas.
We started exploring Port Macquarie accommodation deals, looking for a luxury 4 to 5 star hotel or a self contained apartment ideally with a free breakfast included we expected to have to pay a sizeable amount for our break only to be pleasantly surprised by the variety of options available. Whether you’re preparing a quick stopover a weekend break or a proper holiday, there are options and deals to suit anyone.
Starting with a one day bed & breakfast offer for around $160 for a night in a luxury hotel room to a special couples deal including a spa bath, breakfast, wifi & security parking for just over $200 a night! All rooms include FREE wireless internet access.
Oh, and one thing worth noting is that your breakfast will be prepared by the award winning Corner Restaurant that has been listed in the 2013 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide and listed in the 2011 & 2012 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide. Besides offering superb breakfast this sophisticated and contemporary restaurant has a menu featuring seasonal local produce, the freshest ingredients, locally harvested seafood, meats and other seasonal produce from around New South Wales (NSW).
To conclude it all, our search for Port Macquarie accommodation deals left us very pleasantly surprised about the range, quality, level of comfort and also pricing of the local accommodation deals and having chosen a “Couples Retreat” deal for a 2 night stay in early March we had a great time and found our new favourite weekend break location. Already starting to plan our next one…
