We were very disappointed with Macquarie Waters Apartments. We paid extra for water views but it was really water glimpses. In addition there was a bad leak from above so our balcony was unusable. There was a bad meat smell in the basement probably because the ground floor restaurant had its cool rooms there. The lifts and corridors were really... More

We apologise your stay with us was not as you had expected. Every 3 months our grease trap is emptied and this is the smell you experienced. It is emptied first thing in the morning and takes only an hour or so for the smell to go. Our ocean view rooms are sold as having the views from on the... More

Perfectly located and within walking distance to all Port Macquarie has to offer. The amenities are of a high standard and the boutique hotel has a relaxing vibe yet still lends itself to a great base to work from if needed as it has a brilliant wifi service. ALL staff are so kind and helpful and nothing is too much... More

Just an overnight stop in Port Macquarie for us so it was good to be so centrally located for the beach, board walk, shops and restaurants. Our 1 bedroomed apartment was spacious, bright, clean and very well equipped. Having been on the road for a number of days it was great to have our own laundry. Great accommodation and great... More

This place didn’t let us down. We had a sea view room, which although was mainly from the balcony and part of the lounge, it was still worth it. The apartment was well appointed and had everything we needed. Another welcome change from most places we stay at was the bathroom which had good water pressure and room to put... More

Thanks for your review. At Macquarie Waters we have over 85 Foxtel and digital channels and our onsite Manager is available after Reception closes for issues such as this. When we experience bad weather we can at times loose signals to some of the channels and this is easily fixed. We are thrilled you enjoyed every other aspect of your... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our drive from Sydney to Byron. We arrived close to midnight and I called beforehand and reception arranged for the keys to be left in their after hours safe. The room was not the Ritz but it was clean and serviceable and the bed comfortable. Small balcony with glimpse of the water the... More

We only stayed here one night, but the spacious apartment and excellent location would have made it a great place to stay for a few days. Initially, I thought the room rate was expensive, but when I saw the apartment, not "room", I realized that it was great value. Our one bedroom apartment with its bedroom, lounge/dining area and full... More

We stayed in a 2 bdrm apartment for 3 nights and were very disappointed. After reading great reviews on here we thought this would be an awesome place to stay.

This is a great value hotel - close to the beach, restaurants and entertainment. The reception is friendly, rooms are comfortable and pool and spa area are lovely. We've stayed here a few times, and this is the first time we've got a view - nice, as are the balconies. Also, LOVE the restaurant - excellent menu.
