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

Our Deluxe and Superior Rooms, are away from the road and have some great views of the yachts on the Hastings River.

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. Good value and a short stroll from the interesting walk to the breakwall. Families and individuals have taken ownership of the large boulders along the walk and painted them with messages. Not graffiti at all. Meal at... More

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. Some of the public areas do need a... More

Stayed two nights on the way North. Very comfortable room, with the ability to open the door to the balcony to let fresh air in. Unfortunately no water view - but no noise from the carpark and road (with the door closed, anyway.) Water side of the hotel was a very relaxing walk along a path - watching the local... More
