We stayed here as a family of four in a three bedroom level four apartment (411&12) from the 27th June til the 11th July. This is one of the best places we have stayed in Port. Checkin was super friendly and the Apartment was excellent. Really spacious with three bathrooms no three TVs. The kitchen has everything you need and... More

Hotel room was small but sufficient it was only for one night and plenty of room for a couple, did not have much a view of the ocean but we were on level 4 so it was nice a quiet. The rooftop hot tub was the icing on the cake for us - just excellent, great views and a lovely... More

We stayed here two weeks ago. Having not booked in advance we did some quick research on TripAdvisor on reaching Port M at about 6 pm. We happened to have pulled up outside Macquarie Waters, went in and were very well received by the receptionist who was happy to give us access to the two rooms left. We chose a... More

We checked in late, the staff then were excellent. Checking out had to wait a little while girl was chatting in the back. The room was excellent. Great for families as they have adjoining rooms. Could hear the neighbours through the wall, but the room was clean and comfortable. It was very close to great restaurants and very central. I... More

Stopped here when driving up the Pacific Highway to Brisbane. It was great to get into the heated pool. The shops are nearby and the apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The staff were very helpful.

Great place. My family has stayed there a few times when we have been to Port. Great location close to shops and restaurants. Superb views if lucky to get an apartment with a view. The Corner Restaurant located on premises is amazing best coffee and tea!

Thank you for staying at Macquarie Waters again! We agree, Port Macquarie is a beautiful spot - especially in winter when we enjoy sunny days and relatively warm temperatures. We appreciate your fantastic review and the recommendation about The Corner restaurant – we love the Campos Coffee and T2 Tea too. More

We have stayed at Macquarie Waters on four occasions, usually for 3 or 4 nights. The apartments are well appointed, roomy, comfortable, well priced and always clean.

We love this hotel - we've stayed here half a dozen times and always sad to leave. From the fifth floor (south side) there is a beaut view to the coast from the large balcony. Main bedroom is good size - though wardrobe can be too pokey. Well-appointed kitchen - great to have access to a washing machine also. Nice... More
