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

After an awful start to my stay in port being that the motel I had initially booked turned out to be a dump. The wonderful receptionist Ashley at Waters Edge turned it all around for me. I can't praise her enough. She was totally emphatic with my situation and enabled me to have the holiday I had hoped for. I... More

We had a wonderful time in port Macquarie. Our rooms had wonderful water views. Rooms were clean and well appointed although they looked a little tired. Would recommend it as the position and close proximity to the cbd was very convenient

Friendly check in. Room clean but basic. Good location as you can walk to either settlement city or Port Central. Lovely to look out over the water as you are having breakfast. The Ducks walking around are a great delight for children (and adults!). You can also pre purchase breakfast more cheaply than the walk in rate when you are... More

Driving from Brisbane to Sydney I looked for a place to stop on the way and decided to check out Port Macquarie. Waters Edge Port Macquarie was the only resort that had a picture of the water directly in front of the Hotel, so I rang and booked a sea view room. We were not disappointed. The room faced the...

On a recent business trip where i usually stay in 4-5 different places over the week this was by far the best. Great view over the water and pool. Loverly Buffet breakfast, and good walking distance to everything.

My overall thoughts on this motel was that it was just ok, nothing special. The pool definitely need some upkeep with cracked and missing tiles. The fact that the restaurant isn't open on Sundays nights is disappointing for travellers like us passing through and staying just a night. The labelling on our hot and cold taps in the shower were... More
