Port Macquarie is an Macquarie Waters is quite good value. The one bedroom apartment fits the bill on the big things - WiFi, great bed, spacious and clean, close to restaurants with a good cafe/restaruant.in the same building. It's the little things that add the icing - a well stocked kitchen, good hair dryer

Check in was very easy, lady on reception was very polite. We had a two bedroom apartment for 2 nights. It was spacious, clean and tidy, with all amenities you could need. Pool area was great and clean, could probably benefit from some better seating options. Used, wet cushions on the chairs and bed aren't appealing. Went for breakfast at... More

Stayed here for a few nights as a long weekend break. Nice location near the water. Nice view from one bed apartment. Not sure why described as boutique. We had two towels for use for three nights. Decided to grab some more but reception closed at 4 on a sunday. Some form of room cleaning or refreshing supplies for a... More

Thank you for your detailed review. The apartment you stayed in is loved by many regular guests, they love that the apartment is open so they have all the luxury of space with the extra luxury of being able to watch TV in bed. Most of our one bedroom apartments have a full separation between lounge and bedroom. We are... More

We booked for one night while en route from Surfers Paradise to Sidney. Advertised as a “boutique” hotel, we expected more. It’s really a budget hotel from furnishing and finishing to linens and towels. Quite basic. Clean and quiet. Desk staff was friendly and professional, but the front desk is closed from about 7:00 pm to 7:00 am. Seems to... More

Another hotel claiming to be a Boutique Hotel, but isn't. It's a very nice, apartment hotel. Possibly the best apartment hotel I've stayed in. Boutique Hotels are unique settings with upscale accommodations. The centre of Port isn't what I call unique, & having your room made up every 5 days isn't "upscale". If this is #1 in Port, the others... More

All guests have different expectations of ‘boutique’ accommodation – we promote ourselves as a boutique apartment hotel.

Only downfall that I found frustrating is no flyscreens on balcony doors which was dangerous for our 3 yr old and the mozzies were huge. Therefore room became stuffy when doors were closed up. Otherwise great kitchen.

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

Thank you for your suggestion re: flyscreens - we will discuss further with the team. Hopefully you used the air conditioner or fan to help cool the room when you closed the balcony doors. We trust you enjoyed your time in Port Macquarie and hope to see you again. More

We don't usually stay in apartments in but I'm glad I booked Macquarie Waters. The location is excellent, close to shops etc. We were very impressed with our apartment which was modern, comfortable and also had a well appointed kitchenette. We would happily stay there if we were to visit Port Macquarie again in the future. Highly recommended.

we stayed at the one-bedroom apartment for a night and found this place to be really excellent. Wifi worked great and location was convenient, next to the waters and near the museum. Service was also excellent. Will definitely recommend this place!

This hotel is really stylish, and the rooms are great. I got a peek inside a two bedroom apartment with a balcony and limited water views. It's set back off the water about a block. They have a new restraunt opening soon and it's also very stylish.
