It's a great location, close to the shops, business centre, coastal walks including to Town Beach. The room offers a well-stocked kitchen for those times you want to eat in, but is close to a number of restaurants and cafes.

Great place. The rooms were meticulous and modern. The receptionist, Kathy, was friendly and polite. Everything we needed was at our doorstep and nearby. Beach, eateries, shops all waiting for you. The top floor has a wonderful, sweeping view of the beach and a jacuzzi. The pool normally has a movie screen playing in Summer but not in Winter. We... More

Loved this boutique hotel with its modern décor and excellent location. Secure underground parking was good. Receptionists were courteous and friendly with good tips about the area. An excellent breakfast is available in the coffee shop downstairs. the rooftop has good views, BBQing facilities and loungers and a hot tub. The pool was clear and welcoming.

i booked a room at macquarie waters for valentines day this year. The price for a room was $250 which was very reasonable. The reception felt very relaxing with the water feature and pool right nearby. The room was huge with a massive shower that felt over sized and worked excellently. there were amazing shampoos and conditioners to choose from... More

I booked the 3 bedroom which was great value. We each had a bathroom and the AC worked a treat as it was freezing. Always a great place to stay. Thanks kathy 😊😊 Maybe a few more utensils in the kitchen would be great.

MWManager, Manager at Macquarie Waters Hotel & Apartments, responded to this review

4 reviews is a record! A weekend with the girls is always a treat and our 3 bedrooms are perfect because you can hang out & catch up yet still enjoy the privacy of your own bedroom and bathroom! We will be in contact regarding your request for more kitchen utensils – thank you for staying with us again! More

Stayed in a Hotel Room. Check in was quick and easy with all necessary details explained. Room was on the 4th floor, had all the necessary bits and pieces, but physically, slightly small (glad didn't book small hotel room). Maintenance and cleanliness was very good, everything worked, and was clean. As we were checking out extra early the next morning... More

We stayed overnight in a standard double east-facing room with balcony. Central position and great for our early morning walk along the coast. Secure parking, Wi-Fi and restaurant made for an easy stay. Will use again.

We stayed in a very spacious and clean one bedroom apartment on the 5th floor with a view from the nice large balcony. Hotel facilities were excellent with a pool and spa on the 1st floor and a roof top spa with views on the 6th floor. Good position, friendly staff, car park and Wi-Fi. Would definitely stay again.
