We stayed here for 2 nights and found this hotel fantastic. It is situated very close to the water and the town centre. At check in we found the lady friendly and helpful. Our room on the second level was spacious, comfortable and clean. We had a small balcony overlooking the water and pelicans. There is no lift here but... More

Stayed 4 nights in this hotel while working in the area. Location is excellent only metres from the Hastings river and a short walk to the middle of town. Great location near all restaurants. Motel is old but has been refurbished and the location makes up for this. Most units have river views. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

We found it concerning that these rooms DO NOT have locks on their balcony doors. As you can see from the attached picture, there is a simple chain arrangement, but no lock, that you can easily remove from outside the room . We tried it and had no difficulty entering the room from the balcony. What makes this worse is... More

Had a one night stop over in Port Mac, room was comfortable but lacking any character. Shower curtain very annoying blowing into the shower, would be an improvement to replace with doors into the shower. Ask if you can have a room away from the road if you want a lie in or you will be woken by the traffic.... More

I have stayed in a few hotels/motels in Port Macquarie and this is by far the best, walking distance to town (5 minutes) and far enough away for peace and quiet. A beautiful view of the river from your own balcony and sometimes a glimpse of a dolphin. I recommend this hotel for everyone. Benjamin Hill

Waters Edge was very comfortable and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Wifi in the lobby. Ashleigh at reception was very friendly and helpful.

This hotel was in an excellent location for a first-time visitor to this sunny city, being both picturesque and central. The welcome was warm, and assistance provided with luggage, which was a help as there is no lift to the upper floor. The room was very clean and comfortable, with all facilities.
