Waters edge is in a great location. Over looking the Hastings river. I am a local and just wanted a night away. The staff were great here, but the walls are extremely thin I could hear everything that was going on in the rooms next to me and the goings on in the hallway. There was a winning noise all... More

Sunday 12th April 2015 After driving for 6 hours we were looking forward to arriving at what has always been one of our favourite motels. Having stayed here on and off for over 30 years it was very disappointing to be booked in by the Operations Manager who was very abrupt, to a point of rudeness, and dismissive of the... More

We loved our stay at Waters Edge. Our room was clean and comfortable with a lovely outlook over the pool and water. The littlies loved the playground and the pool. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed the very reasonably priced buffet breakfast both mornings of our stay. Close to the town without being on top of... More

Clean enough, big enough and comfy enough for a road trip stay. We scored a room on the road side, which was really loud if you had the balcony door open. Not so bad with it shut though, and it didn't disturb our sleep. The place is nice and close to all the interesting stuff, and an easy walk to... More

Hotel location is both a boon and a curse, it's a very short walk from the centre of Port Macquire, which is good for the amenities, but that means it's on quite a busy road, which if you are sensitive to noise, like I am, means you could have a restless night. Front of house staff were a touch on... More

Stopped on the way back from gold coast to Sydney and found the place to be very kid friendly, clean and well looked after. Great food at the restaurant a little bit on the pricey side but a fantastic meal. Good value for money for a stop over. We will definitely return.

A hotel in a great location for exploring Port Macquarie on foot. Good views across harbour from rooms at rear and although not luxurious they have everything you need in the room and clean and with a good restaurant and bar area to relax in.Ample free parking. A good selection for breakfast and well cooked and presented.

I stayed for 1 night whilst on a business trip and was upgraded to a deluxe poolside room, it was really nice to be able to step out of my room and in to the pool area. The hotel is situated by the water and there's a lovely walking track that runs alongside the hotel, all the way down to... More
