I did a quick stay over here and was really unimpressed. The front desk staff were distant and vague, and to get to my room (227) I had to climb stairs with the bags, no lift in sight. The room was small, basic and I could hear every sound from next door. On retiring to the balcony with a beer... More

We stayed here passing through port Macquarie. It's reasonably true to the pictures on websites, though maybe not as "sparkly". We booked a basic room on booking.com, however were later offered a water view room (via promotional email). We decided to take it. When we arrived however, the hotel knew nothing of this upgrade, neither did they have our credit... More

We were here just for one night in transit but had a good impression of the hotel and the way it was run whilst we were there. We had a king room with the view of the pool and lake, this was really pretty. The pool/ restaurant area was really inviting. Reception staff were very helpful and knew their stuff.

The Waters Edge at Port Macquarie is 40 years old ( I used to stay there when it was the Country Comfort ) and it is a bit dated. The location is terrific - close to town and with water views of the Hastings River and the canal. We stayed in Room 212 which ( in our opinion ) is... More

From the outside it looks like you are staying in a dated Motel rather than a Hotel. Once you walk into the building you are greeted by a foul smell of dampness and musk that resonates throughout the whole hotel. The whole place is in dire need of refurbishment as it feels like you a in a bad B-Grade 1960's... More

The Hotel is over 40 years old and is in great condition for its age. It has a lot of character unlike the new prefab buildings. The pictures on the Expedia website from which you booked... More

Nice modern decor, spacious room, good facilities and relaxed holiday vibe make this a good choice. Handy to town for restaurants and shopping. The pool area is nice with great views of the river. Plenty of parking nearby.

This was a pleasant find. Close to main stream areas, walking distance to waterfront eateries and tours. Lots of walk ways to explore. Rooms all had balconies, individual air conditioning in very clean rooms. The food in house was tasty, well presented and reasonable in price. We stay here again
