First and foremost, the service here is absolutely outstanding. After booking for a late night check-in, some hold ups on my end lead to me checking in at 5am. Prior to this communication was made and keys left outside in their safe, except as the safe had mucked up, the manager gave me the option to transfer to Rydges with... More

Thank you for such a detailed review. As you note we are perfectly located between town centre and town beach, so in the day our street has some activity of people going to work, visiting the cafes and shopping. We do have 1 bedroom fully self contained apartment layouts and designs located in different aspects of the building. I am... More

This is our 2nd stay at Macquarie Waters. We love it. The apartments are spotless and contain everything we needed for our stay. We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 children) and we had more then enough room in the 3 bedroom apartment. I particularly love having a washing machine & dryer in the apartment. A walk to... More

We spent 5 nights in a 3 BR apartment as a midwinter break. The room was very comfortable, warm and spacious - provided the holiday break we needed. We loved the fact our older teenagers had their own bathrooms and the parent room was very private. Wonderfully convenient to the town, restaurants and activities - we love the fact we... More

We spent three nights at this hotel in June 2014. The staff were great, very helpful and friendly. The one bedroom apartment was large with a large balcony with water views. Furnishings were modern and the king bed comfortable. Within walking distance to the main shopping area and other attractions. The Corner Restaurant (at the hotel) was very enjoyable, top... More

The 2 bedroom spa apartment was perfectly appointed for a family of 2 adults & 2 children. Very roomy living/dining area & an additional TV in the main bedroom for parents. Fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances you could need & a huge balcony with water views. Highly recommend Macquarie waters for an affordable luxury family getaway

This was our second visit for a single night stay here and we'll definitely be back. Although reception was closed when we arrived our keys and welcome letter we're waiting in the restaurant (The Corner). Our room was immaculately clean with a balcony and sea views.

Really friendly check in, comfortable, clean & quiet room (407) & a breakfast to die for perfectly served! Location is spot on, pool is good and to cap it all there is roof garden with hot tub, BBQ & loungers. We will recommend to family & friends.

It may have been winter in Port Macquarie but it sure didn't feel like it. The sun was out, the water was warm and the whales were playing. Stayed two nights at Macquarie Waters before leaving Port Macquarie for work in Melbourne.

Choose this place due to good reviews on TA. Initially booked a double bed room. But change to a 1 bedroom apartment as recommended on TA. Oh boy, so glad I made the change. Our apartment #507 is spacious and has a beautiful side view of the shoreline. Sarah is most helpful when I made the room reservation change. She... More
