Thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Port Macquarie due... More

Stayed one night returning to Sydney from Gold Coast. Fantastic large rooms, modern clean and really lovely feel. Exceeded expectations. Nice pool and roof deck. Had breakfast at the restaurant which was nice. Also my wife left an outfit there and it was tracked down and in transit now. Appreciated.

Comfortable 2 bedroom apartment for a family of 4. Clean and good size apartment. Pool area a little small. Coffee downstairs good. Good location, walking distance to main hub of town. Good service at check in. Overall good experience.

Located within walking distance to beaches, shops and restaurants. The 2 bedroom apartment was perfect. Fully fitted out. Spacious bathrooms. Queen size bed was too soft. Staff are friendly and helpful. Corner Restaurant highly recommended for dinner. Great practical pool for a relaxing swim. Would stay there again.

Arrived this visit during a very busy vacation period, only to be surprised with an upgrade. The Apartment, as usual, always very clean & welcoming. Macquarie Waters is so central for excellent dining, amazing walks, photography hotspots & excellent Town Beach. Downstairs is great Campos coffee & dining. Our room had a spa which is a must & just in... More

Stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family for Christmas. We had a 1BR apartment and were thrilled with our choice. The location is fantastic, just one block to town and a 5 minute walk to town beach. Pool was great on non-beach days, and not too busy. Plenty of on site parking which is especially useful in the summer... More
