Port Macquarie’s history can be anchored back to a time when the first convicts, penal colonies and early settlers made birth on its shores. The Best Western Plus HW Boutique Hotel was originally built on the site of the old convict gaol in 1966. Known then as the Historic Well Motel, it was named for the well that remains in the grounds to this very day. The convicts’ broad arrow markings are clear on the top layer of the wedge shaped hand-made bricks and are a popular talking point among guests who frequent the hotel today.
