From changing our reservation with no problems with Alison, two times before arriving, to our friendly greeting, the Macquarie Waters Hotel was a winner. Our room was spotlessly clean, had comfortable beds and everything we needed, including a super view of the ocean from the large patio. Amenities even included laundry soap, as well as lovely toiletries. We could walk... More

Recently stayed at Macquarie Waters for a night when we went to the Glass House for a show. Room was comfortable and clean. The girl on reception was friendly and efficient. The walls are thin though and we could hear the TV from next door easily. But over all was a comfortable establishment.

New building with large, clean and comfortable apartments and a free parking available. Friendly staff. Wifi is working well. Located in downtown, near the beachfront. In summary nothing to criticize.

We stayed three nights in a delightful apartment. From check in - with the delightful Allison - who also checked us out - we were delighted with everything. The apartment was spacious, had great views, was very clean, quiet and contained everything you could possibly need. The apartments are so close to the CBD we walked everywhere which was great....
